Qualifications and Experience
Early years…. I was born in Caracas, Venezuela before moving to the U.S and settling in Richmond, Va. I completed my undergraduate studies in Biology from James Madison University's Honors College in 2013 and received my DDS degree from the world’s first dental school, the University of Maryland School of Dentistry in 2017. During my training, I gained a special appreciation for helping communities through dental care by participating in various Mission of Mercy projects serving local underserved populations as well as internationally in Central America through a partnership with Medical Ministry International. Nowadays…. It is an honor and privilege to join a profession I love and one which gives me the ability to restore not only smiles, but self-confidence in so many individuals. I am always trying to learn the newest techniques and innovations in my field through continuing education courses. At RenovaSmiles, I work hand in hand with the entire team; from the front desk to hygienist and assistants, to provide individualized care and attention to your oral health care needs. Personal facts about me: During my free time, I enjoy staying active through local recreation leagues; playing anything from flag football, kickball, and the occasional tennis match. I love spending time with my family and always look forward to the next big reunion with my childhood friends. I am an avid lover of travel and enjoy visiting and getting to know other cultures, especially when it comes to the food!
Verified Patient Reviews
Very nice. Explained all the procedures in detail and with video as I was very nervous. Staff is great, went out of their way to figure out which insurance I was covered under when I showed up with the wrong card. Would highly recommend if you are someone like me who hates going to the dentist because of how easy the made the visit.
Jhosdyn Barragan, DDS is really profesional, kind and takes the time to listen to detail any questions or concerns that my family and I may have to meet our needs. He takes every visit to a personal level and treat us with such care. I already have and will keep on reccomending him to my family and friends. He’s a great dentist!
Great experience and positive vibe. A little difficulty finding the office as it looks like it’s part of an apartment complex, but other than that, the staff and Dr. B were great! Try to give yourself plenty of time to find the building beforehand. I was running a little late, but they had no issue when I called to let them know. Also, my daughter loved the Dentist and they make it such a positive experience for kids. At the end she got to choose a treat from the treasure box they have at the front desk along with some cute chapstick. Overall I highly recommend Dr. B.
Friendly, attentive, knows what he’s doing! A little out of my way normally but will go back. Office is clean.
I did wait a little longer than I would have liked but the receptionist explained they were waiting for my insurance paperwork to come through. And everyone who came in while i was there was seen rather quickly! Not only was Dr. Barragan very nice and thorough the entire staff was super helpful and caring. Definitely would recommend!!
