Dubravko Pavlin, DMD, MSD, Ph.D. –
Board Certified Orthodontist

I obtained the Orthodontic Specialty Certificate and a Ph.D. in Biomedical Sciences from the University of Connecticut, and a D.M.D. and M.S. in Dentistry degrees from the University of Zagreb, Croatia.

I am a Board Certified Orthodontist and a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics. I continue to work part-time as a Professor of Orthodontics at the UTHSCSA School of Dentistry, also as a clinical consultant for OrthoAccel Technologies, Inc., Bellaire, TX, and an expert consultant in clinical orthodontics and related fields, Premier Orthodontics Consulting, San Antonio, TX.


I have worked as a full time and part-time orthodontic faculty for the last 24 years involved in teaching clinical orthodontics and numerous didactic courses to orthodontic residents and dental students, as well as treating orthodontic patients in faculty practice. I was Director of the Orthodontic Residency Program at the School of Dentistry in San Antonio from 2006 through 2014.  My areas of clinical expertise include orthodontic biomechanics and treatment planning, evidenced-based treatment, and biological response of alveolar bone to orthodontic appliances.

My wife Sanja and I enjoy our growing family of three married daughters and eight grandchildren. We also enjoy working out in a gym, playing tennis and dancing. Through our church, we are involved in humanitarian and missionary work locally and internationally.

Ravikumar Anthony BDS, MDS, MS —
Board Certified Orthodontist

I graduated from the Orthodontic Residency Program in San Antonio, Texas in 2008 and am Certified by the American Board of Orthodontics.


Clinical orthodontics and teaching are my passion and I have spent the last 15 years doing both. I was the Program Director of the Orthodontic Residency at UT Health San Antonio from 2014-2022. We trained several orthodontists over the years.


I stepped down from the position of Orthodontic Program Director at UT Health to join Southside Children's Orthodontic Center.


Creative innovative treatment plans that are unique to patients, running on time and providing high quality care and service to patients are important practice goals for me. Apart from working here, I teach part time at both UT Health San Antonio and at UCLA.
