Dr. Jorge C. Coro 

 

Dr. Jorge C. Coro was born in Havana, Cuba. Both his parents were highly regarded orthodontists in Havana. His father, Dr. Carlos Coro, was the Dean of the University of Havana School of Dentistry and Chairman of the Department of Orthodontics. In 1956, Dr. Carlos Coro served as president of the Tweed Foundation for Orthodontic Research (which is based in Tucson, Arizona and was the most prestigious and influential orthodontic organization in the world at that time). After Dr. Carlos Coro's passing, Dr. Jorge Coro's mother, Dr. Margarita A. Coro, was able to leave Cuba.  After years of study, she obtained her Florida dental license and opened an office at the age of 62. 

Dr. Coro came to Miami in 1961 where he grew up.  He graduated from the University of Miami with a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry and obtained his Doctorate of Dental Medicine degree from the University of Florida, College of Dentistry.  He  completed his specialty training at the University of Tennessee where he earned a Master's of Science in Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics. 

In 1981 he joined his mother's practice and  in 1987, he opened the Coral Gables office where he is currently located.  He has been involved in organized dentistry, serving as President and Founding Member of the West Dade Dental Society (1990-1991), the South Florida Academy of Orthodontists (1993-1994) and the Florida Association of Orthodontists (2006-2007).  He is a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics. 

Dr. Coro has been utilizing the MEAW technique as taught by Dr. Young H. Kim and Dr. Sadao Sato to successfully treat severe skeletal malocclusions since 1995.  He is currently teaching the MEAW Course at the University of Florida and Nova Southeastern University's Orthodontic Departments, where the residents treat cases under his supervision. 

Dr. Coro and his wife, Marisa, have two wonderful daughters, Ivette and Nicole, both graduates of the University of Florida.  Ivette recently graduated from her orthodontic training and joined the practice as a partner. In addition to his family and orthodontics, Dr. Coro's other passion is freediving and spearfishing, which he pursues as frequently as the weather permits.
