Dr. Steven Gaglio Rivas

Dr. Rivas has been following his calling for over 25 years. Having owned and operated two successful cosmetic dentistry practices in Silicon Valley and in Napa Valley, it wasn’t until 2010 that Dr. Rivas moved his family to Texas. He successfully practiced at numerous hospitals and offices around Texas before finally settling in Kerrville, in 2019. He has a long family history in the Lone Star State. He and his wife made the choice to return their family back to a more simple, familial, and traditional lifestyle that reflects their beliefs. Couldn't be anywhere, but Texas!

Dr. Rivas is on the Surgical Staff at Peterson Regional Medical Center. He is a Texas Dental Board Level II Sedation Certified Dentist, Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) certified. He is a member of The Hill Country Forum For Dental Excellence chapter of The Seattle Study Club. Dr. Rivas fully enjoys treating patients of all ages – from children to adults, and special needs patients.

When not providing world class dental services, Dr. Rivas loves spending his time with his wife, their three children, and their three dogs. Besides dentistry, Dr. Rivas is also passionate about traveling, music, food and wine, language, science, and history.
