Dr. Caballero was born and raised in Cienaga, Magdalena, a small town on the coast of Colombia, South America. He studied dentistry at the Universidad Metropolitana in nearby Barranquilla, and graduated in 1988 at 21 years old as the youngest graduate of the dental program in its history. Upon graduation, Dr. Caballero completed a year of social service providing dental services to remote indigenous communities in Aracataca, the birthplace of the best-selling Colombian author, Gabriel Garcia Marquez.
