Meet the Doctors

Dr. Serapio De La Rosa, DDS

Welcome to All Smiles Dental Center! I hope that you will allow me to be an integral part in restoring and maintaining your dental health. San Antonio is a familiar place for me and I am glad to be returning to this community. I received a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Texas at San Antonio and graduated from the University of Texas Health Science Center Dental School in San Antonio in 1984. I have been in private practice for over 28 years in my hometown of San Benito, Texas. I am married and have 2 daughters.

Dentistry is my passion and I am blessed to be able to go to work each day with a smile on my face. I am currently working in the San Antonio practice Thursdays, Fridays, and some Saturdays. I have the joy of working along side my son-in-law and business partner Dr. David Vela here in our San Antonio practice. My daughter, Stephanie Vela, is our dental hygienist and my beautiful wife, Pat, is our office manager. We pride ourselves in being a small family practice and I hope that you will allow All Smiles the opportunity to be your dental home.

Outside of dentistry, I primarily enjoy spending time with my family. Fishing, hunting, and going to the movies are some other hobbies of mine. I am also a huge sports fan with my favorite basketball team being the San Antonio Spurs!

Dr. David Vela, DDS

Welcome to our family at All Smiles Dental Center. I am excited to meet and get to know each and every patient that comes through our office. Since I was a child, I always knew I wanted to do something in the health care profession. As I explored my options, I gravitated directly towards dentistry. I truly feel blessed to be able to go to work every day and do something I love. Perhaps my favorite part about dentistry is being able to form personal relationships with patients and interact with them on a regular basis

Originally from Corpus Christi, Texas, I graduated from Mary Carroll High School. I moved to San Antonio after graduation and obtained my Bachelor of Arts in Biology at St. Mary's University. I completed my dental education with a Doctor of Dental Surgery from the University of Texas Health Science Center San Antonio Dental School. In my opinion, regardless of what you choose as a profession, you can never stop learning. To keep up to date with the newest technology, products, and ideas, I attend continuing dental education courses regularly. I have completed over 200 hours of continuing education from implant surgery and restoration to Invisalign and 6 Month Smiles. This ensures I can continue to provide only the highest level of care for you and your families.

When not consumed by dentistry, family is the biggest part of my life. I have a wonderful wife, Stephanie, whom you will surely get to know at our practice. We have been blessed with a beautiful baby girl, Gabriella and my amazing son, Luke. They have taught us to love like we never knew possible. I enjoy doing almost anything there is do outside, including all sports, golfing, and hunting. My favorite teams are the San Antonio Spurs, Dallas Cowboys, and Texas Longhorns. I can not wait for the opportunity to form a new friendship with you and hope you will allow me to help you maintain a functional and beautiful smile!

Welcome to All Smiles Dental Center! I can’t wait to get to know all of the patients at our office. One reason I chose this profession was because of the interactions it allows me to have with people on a daily basis, and touching the lives of those in my community. Having the opportunity to make patients smile is one of the most rewarding things I have experienced.

I am originally from Mexico City, Mexico but got to San Antonio as fast as I could! I consider myself a San Antonio native as I have been living here for over 20 years. I graduated from Central Catholic High School and then moved on to graduate from Texas A&M University with a Bachelor of Science in Biology. I then accomplished my dream of obtaining a Doctorate of Dental Surgery when I graduated from the University of Texas Health Science Center San Antonio Dental School. While that was a milestone in my educational career, I will continue to learn by taking continuing education courses to ensure I provide you with the most current practices.

When I’m not working, I love spending time with my family and friends. I also enjoy camping, hiking, and the outdoors. In fact, backpacking every National Park in the country is at the top of my bucket list. I also enjoy sports, and always cheer for my Spurs and Aggies! Once again, I look forward to meeting you and doing everything I can to ensure you have a healthy and beautiful smile!

Dental Hygienist

My name is Stephanie Vela and I am one of the dental hygienist here at All Smiles Dental Center. I am married to Dr. Vela and the daughter of Dr. De La Rosa. Working with my father in the dental field has been a dream of mine since I was a little girl. Now, not only did my dream come true with working with him, but also being able to work with my wonderful husband. I truly enjoy being a dental hygienist and having the opportunity to work along side my husband and family. We have enjoyed all the patients that have joined our dental family so far and we are excited about it continuing to grow!

I was born and raised in Harlingen, Texas. I graduated from Harlingen High School South and then moved to my mom's hometown of San Antonio, Texas. I attended St. Mary's University where I earned my Bachelor of Arts in Biology. I also met my husband during my time there at St.Mary's. After graduation, I went on to earn my professional degree and obtained my Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene from the University of Texas Health Science Center San Antonio.

We have a beautiful little girl, Gabriella, and handsome little guy, Luke.  They are the light of my life and I truly enjoy spending every moment with them.
