Dr. Luis Cuellar, III

Dr. Luis Cuellar, III majored in Biology and Chemistry locally at Valparaiso University. He then attended Indiana University School of Dentistry, where he graduated in 2003 to begin his dental career.

He has enjoyed his many years in dentistry and looks forward to the future of the industry. At a time when many practices were choosing to sell to corporations, Dr. Cuellar decided in 2018 to join our family at Cosmopolitan Dentistry and assure the continuation of our small private practice well in to the future.
