Jose H. Rojas


Atique Orthodontics started as a family project with Dr. Atique and Jose, her husband. As our office administrator, Jose dedicates his time to making the office run smoothly and ensuring the happiness of our patients and staff. He has an MBA from Temple University and broad management experience, making him perfect to handle administration, marketing, insurance, finances, and IT. Jose also fills in as our office handyman, however reluctantly. If you have any questions about your account or insurance, he’s the person to ask! Jose and Dr. Atique have been married for 19 years. They have two children, Daniel and Diego. Jose loves road and mountain biking, and is always looking for a new adventure.


Miriam Maldonado

Treatment Coordinator

Miriam has worked in the orthodontic field for several years. She started as a patient and liked the specialty so much that applied for a job with her orthodontist. She has very sweet manners, and is always willing to help with a smile. She loves to take interesting trips during vacation time.


Yrama Alvarez

Orthodontic Assistant

Yrama went to Dental School with Dr. Atique in Venezuela, where she also trained as an orthodontist afterwards. After many years of practice, she moved to San Antonio with her family, where she is working towards getting her dental license in the United States. Meanwhile, she keeps her knowledge fresh by letting us use her experience as an orthodontic assistant. She has a selfless radiance that will not let you tell how fortunate you will be, to have two orthodontists examining you when you sit in her chair. She is the mother of two girls and loves cross-stich.


Mary Margaret Ruiz

Patients Relations Coordinator

Mary Margaret started in our office as the mother of two of our patients. She brags about her children’s smile with pride. She is the kind of person that has always a smile and receives everybody with a positive attitude. If you need anything from appointments, to letters and school notes, she will be happy to help.
