Carolina Garcia, DMD

"There is one quote that has always resonated with me: 'Dentistry isn't expensive, neglect is.' This is something I hope to educate my patients on. The longer someone ignores a dental need, the more severe (and expensive) it can become. Remember to take great care of your teeth at home and to visit your dentist regularly!"

My Mission

"My mission as a dental professional is to serve my patients by keeping up-to-date with the most current research and technology, educating them on effective oral hygiene, and continually researching how to better my skills. I aim to provide them with restorative and preventative services while ensuring that I treat them comfortably."
