He completed his undergraduate studies at the University of Southern California in 1972 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Quantitative Business Analysis.

Dr. Baltazar was recently awarded a Certified Dental Consultant with the American Association of Dental Consultants.

Dr. Baltazar was raised in Delano, a small farming community in central California. Toiling in the grape fields at an early age instilled a work ethic that served Dr. Baltazar well in later life. After attending USC on a full scholarship under the NROTC program, he served aboard the USS Samuel Gompers (AD-37) as a Naval Supply Officer.

Dr. Baltazar is married to Shirley Baltazar and recently celebrated their 38th wedding anniversary.They have two sons, Daryl and his wife Lauren and their son Bennett, and Doug and his wife Asli and their newest addition to the family, Paisley.

Dr. Baltazar enjoys playing handball, swimming, and golf; relaxes with a good book and watching sports; meditates with yoga; but everything seems to take a backseat when it comes to his grandchildren, Bennett, Paisley and Alison Rose.

Since 1988 and Counting I Have been part of this amazing Dental Family Team in Mira Mesa.

Born and Raised in San Diego, My childhood upbringing was and until I got married back in 1996 has been a part of this  beautiful community of Mira Mesa. To me, I was able to see the Dental Practice Grow from  when I was young walking to Wangheim Jr. High and stopping by after Middle school to the arcade that was in a corner called Oaktree Plaza. I  had no idea  that across the arcade place existed a dental office of Dr. Baltazar Jr.

Never even thinking I would one day work for this office, I finished my Registered Dental Assisting  program and was placed to intern for Dr. Baltazar Office back in 1/2/1988 then was  hired on 2/18/1988 turned out to be the beginning of this dental practice in my life called HOME. For more than 33 years.  As you can see I have grown with this dental  practice as well as many patients and their families. I have been very lucky to work and continue to work for this amazing office and like all of our patients past, present, and future I always love to serve everyone who walks in through these doors of 9329 Mira Mesa Blvd. 

  I am a mother of 4 young adults  all with the letter A’s (Alissa, Angelica, Alonzo, and Armando Josue), Plus this year on August 17, 2021 My Husband and I celebrated our 25th anniversary. This practice as well as myself have grown to a great level of making fond memories and seeing many families grow up like myself to have families of their own and now seeing third generation children. Which makes it even so special to be part of this office.. 

Dr. Baltazar will celebrate 40 years in May 2022  of having this Dental Practice.
