Dr. Ricardo S. Ochinang, DMD
Dr. Ricardo (Ricky) Somera Ochinang was born in Cleveland, Ohio and moved to Birmingham, Alabama at the age of two. He attended John Carroll Catholic High School, Birmingham, Alabama and graduated with honors in 1996. He received his bachelor’s degree with a major in biology and minor in chemistry and graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Alabama at Birmingham in 2000. Afterwards, he earned his dental degree from the University of Alabama School Of Dentistry in 2004.

Following the events of 9/11, Dr. Ochinang began to consider entering the military. Following graduation from dental school, Dr. Ochinang entered the United States Air Force as a Captain in July 2004 and completed Commissioned Officer Training at Maxwell Air Force Base, Alabama. He then accomplished a one year residency in Advanced Education in General Dentistry at Keesler Air Force Base, Mississippi. Dr. Ochinang was then stationed at Goodfellow Air Force Base, Texas where he completed the rest of his commitment with the Air Force until his separation in March 2009 when he was awarded the Air Force Commendation Medal for his service.

A strong supporter of organized dentistry, Dr. Ochinang is a member of the American Dental Association, Academy of General Dentistry, Texas Dental Association, and San Angelo District Dental Society. In August 2007, Dr. Ochinang deployed with a medical team from Goodfellow Air Force Base as the lone humanitarian dental provider to aid Peru earthquake victims, surgically treating over 150 patients.

In May 2008, Dr. Ochinang married the love of his life and San Angelo native Brandi Albarado at Sacred Heart Cathedral Church. Dr. Ochinang and Brandi first met while being stationed at Keesler Air Force Base. After a period of geographic separation, the two reunited on St. Patrick’s Day, March 2007, in San Angelo. The two are happily married with two children, Kaleigh and Ramero.

Consistently striving for dental excellence, Dr. Ochinang has accrued over 500 hours of continuing education, attending a number of military and civilian dental courses. Most recently, Dr. Ochinang has become certified in Invisalign and has received certification for soft tissue laser treatment. Dr. Ochinang also has a history of community involvement. He served as a volunteer at the Children’s Hospital in Birmingham, Alabama where he was nominated Volunteer of the Year in 1998. As the Preventive Dentistry Officer at the Goodfellow Dental Clinic, Dr. Ochinang has reached out to community schools in promoting National Children’s Dental Health Month. His cultural background has brought him to serve as vice-president of the Filipino-American Association of Greater Birmingham and president of the Asian Pacific Islander Heritage Committee while stationed at Goodfellow Air Force Base. Dr. Ochinang plans to continue his community involvement in the San Angelo area and is currently a member of the San Angelo Chamber of Commerce.
