“I always dreamed about becoming an orthodontist like my father. I guess you could say it’s in my blood. Despite my education and experience, my father still manages to teach me things about the field. I thank him every day for the inspiration he’s been in my life.”

Dr. Garcia is a second generation orthodontist and comes from a family of physicians and dentists. He approaches orthodontics with a passion and a commitment to excellence while remembering to have some fun along the way!
