About Your Dentist

Jackie Garcia, DDS

"Smiles are contagious so go forth and contaminate as many people as you can."

My Mission

I am grateful to have over 13 years of experience working with children and adults promoting healthy dental habits. In addition to general dentistry I am certified in Invisalign.My first inspiration to enter the field of dentistry started at the age of 10. I was the fearful, phobic child that no one wanted to treat. I finally met a wonderful compassionate dentist that helped me resolve my fears. He inspired me. Being a dentist has afforded me the opportunity to show patience and compassion to all of my patients. I want to make their dental experience more patient-friendly and comfortable.

Life & Hobbies

I am an avid gardener and grow my own vegetables. I frequently volunteer at animal shelters and horse sanctuaries. I also find true peace when I help at my local soup kitchen. It is important to humble ourselves and help people in our community. On my free time I enjoy spending time with my husband, children and my pets.
