Maria Soltero-Rivera, Co-Medical Director



Dr. Maria Soltero-Rivera received her DVM from Cornell University in Ithaca, NY. After that, she returned to her native Puerto Rico for a year-long small animal surgical internship at Veterinary Specialty Hospital in San Juan, followed by a small animal rotating internship at Long Island Veterinary Specialists. Dr. Soltero-Rivera achieved board certification in Dentistry and Oral Surgery in 2014 after completing her residency at the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine. Dr. Soltero-Rivera lectured at PennVet for 2 years after completion of her program before moving to the Bay Area. She still serves as Adjunct Assistant Professor for her beloved PennVet. Her clinical interests include diagnosis and treatment of oral tumors, chronic oral inflammatory diseases and oral and maxillofacial trauma repair.

When she's not working she can be found playing at the beach with her daughter, Aurora, her husband, Bernardo, and their 2 Chihuahuas, Olivia and Pickles. She also loves cooking, reading and running. Maria can probably spill the beans on all of her famous brother's magic tricks after all those years of being his lovely assistant.
