Dr. Natalie Carrizales
Dr. Carrizales was born and raised in Houston, TX. She earned her Bachelor of Science in Biology with a concentration in neuroscience from the University of Texas at San Antonio, graduating Magna Cum Laude. For a year, she worked as a cord blood collector for MD Anderson, helping bring transplants to patients suffering from lymphomas and leukemia. It is not surprising that she chose dentistry as one of the many routes that she helps others. She received her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the University of Texas School of Dentistry.
Dr. Carrizales is an empathetic and compassionate individual who cares about her community and patients. She volunteers her time with Catholic Charities and has served as a catechist. The highlight is seeing children active in the church. Dr. Carrizales also actively volunteers for Baker Ripley Neighborhood Centers and NALEO helping refugees and immigrant residents. She often works with congress representatives and lawyers to aid immigrant families.
Dr. Carrizales enjoys reading books with her younger sisters, participating in anime and comic conventions with her brother and she loves discovering new fooderies with her mother and grandparents. She unwinds painting with acrylics and oils, riding her vintage cruiser bike, and listening to a variety of music. She is also a fitness enthusiast and is an energetic, social individual that thrives in multicultural settings.
Living in the EaDo community with her husband and beautiful son, Dr. Carrizales is looking forward to meeting patients who are also neighborhood friends!
