I’ve recently had a lot of dental work here with Dr. Garcia and I’m very satisfied with the quality of the results. Dr. Garcia is fantastic and very detail oriented, he made sure that I was happy with my new teeth and my smile. It’s all great!  The front desk attendant was very friendly, polite and accommodating with my appointments, the doctor and assistants took good care of me by making me feel comfortable through the whole process. I highly recommend this place to anyone wanting to get any dental work. I am definitely will continue coming back for all future dental work.

I’m very grateful to have found Dr. Garcia and his warm and competent staff. So different from the other dental experience that I had before coming here. Their technology is state of the art, and they use it to fully explain the Dental conditions they are treating and why they are proceeding as they are. It becomes very clear. I’m reassured they are not adding any unneeded procedures. So far I’ve begun to replace a crown and will start next week with an implant. Dr. Garcia is very empathic, soft spoken and makes sure a patient understands what he is doing each step of the way. Definitely a class act.

Bright smiles isn’t just your face, it’s your heart.  Dr. Garcia is amazing. He uses the most advanced technology and is genuinely personable and super nice. I know I am in the best medical care with him. He replaced two bad fillings and an old cap. Not only is my bite much better than it has been in decades, and he has removed all the nasty metal, my teeth look better too. Can I tell you it cost half of what it did to put all this stuff in my mouth to begin with! I have to give a shout out to his staff. Luisa is amazing. She goes out of her way to make your billing and scheduling so clear and easy plus she knows a lot. And the dental assistants I trust completely. Everyone is stellar. I can’t recommend this dental office enough. Plus my insurance covers. Pinch me!

I came to Bright Smiles (Dr Garcia) as a referral from my bff. I had already been to another Endodontist who gave me the bad news (Which started at $5000 for two teeth). Well, Dr. Garcia did his assessment (without me telling him what the other doctor said.). Not only did Dr. Garcia tell me that I didn’t need everything that the other doctor wanted to do, but he did the work on me (that I actually needed done) and now my teeth look amazing. I am now fully committed to not only myself going to see Dr Garcia, but my daughter and my husband are going now as well. All the staff are amazing and they get very high recommendations from me. Thank you very much for all your work

Dr. Garcia is a one of a kind professional dentist! He is the only dentist you will ever trust to work on your teeth if you go there once. From the insertion of the needle to the whole process you will not have a single issue. He takes his time to know exactly where to put the needle and it’s just perfect! 100% recommended and I vote him the Best Dentist of all times. Also if you have old metal lead fillings, he knows the right way of getting them out so that none of the material goes in your mouth and it fully covers around the tooth so you don’t swallow any of that nasty stuff! Thanks to his awesome and helpful team, I will always go to the Bright smiles dental studio!

Hi my name is Ron Chibana, I’ve been terrified going to dentists because they’re tough,rude, and I always felt like I’m going to get ripped off. My wife has been going to dr. Garcia and always told me what a great experience it was so I thought to give it a try. Went in today for some major work, now keep in mind I’m a big baby when it comes to dentists. After being 3 hours in the dental chair, I never felt any pain the whole time I was there. Dr. Garcia is so precise and good at what he does, I was so blown away. The staff there made me feel so at ease, when I got home, still feel no pain and so surprised at the quality of work doc gave me at a reasonable price. If all dentists were like dr. Garcia, no one would ever be afraid of going to the dentist’s again, so with that being said, I highly recommend you go check dr, Garcia and his staff at Bright Smiles dental studio.

Inez F. from Simi Valley, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been coming to this office for more than 15 years and I always have a good experience when I come for my regular check up with Donna or for something urgent with Dr. Garcia. I had to come in for an urgent matter last week and Louisa was able to get me in at the time I wanted. Dr. Garcia and his assistant, Lucretia, were very nice and helpful. They made me feel very comfortable and explained everything that they were doing and what to expect.  They continued to ask if I was okay during the procedure.  I would and have recommended others to see Dr. Garcia and/or his staff. Always Smiles ~ I. Frank

I have had some real real bad experience with dentists. The last one left part of my tooth that I pulled  out myself. The receptionist rocks,she tried her best to find what options I had as far as financial and that  matched what I could afford without insurance .very professional. Yep she rocks The doc…gots the credentials for sure but it was and is his demeanor that sets him apart from the rest of the non caring  just pay me dentist I have met. But honestly what made me feel most at ease was the Lil lady who got me ready for the first exam and today for a tooth extraction.  The first appointment she told me about the doc and how caring he was.she was spot on.she made me very relaxed,she was brutally honest and made me laugh which is hard to do . I had a great hatred for dentist because of past experiences .thanks to her and the way doc Carlos is I don’t have that hatred anymore. Ty so much young lady with  the new mustang. And thank you Doc  Carlos. I will be back..

Bert L. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to Dr. Garcia’s office for over 50 years. Remember Dr. Gail and Jackie? To this day I continue to be amazed with all the new technologies and state of the art equipment used. Dr. Garcia and his staff are innovative, modern and very sanitary in every respect. I will take this opportunity to thank Luiza for her outstanding abilities in scheduling appointments and working with the various insurance companies, getting fair cost for service. I welcome Adrine and La Creesha to Dr. Garcia’s team. Both Adrine and La Creesha are warm, friendly, efficeint and professional in manners and dress. Dr. Garcia and his staff always take real effort and time to explain answers to all question asked. I did not see Tatevik this time, but when you meet her, you will be happy. Tatevik has sparkle. If you have never been to Dr. Garcia’s office, I strongly recommend that you give Luiza a call, and make an appointment. You too will be amazed.

Garrett D. from Burbank, CA (Source: Yelp)


Wow! Where do I start?   Dr. Garcia and his team are absolutely FANTABULOUS!!   I needed a fill mouth restoration, as my teeth had deteriorated and rotted out due to taking Tetracycline for acne back in the late 80’s.  I knew this was going to be a very lengthy and expensive process.  I honestly didn’t think it was possible and had resorted to the fact I was just going to have them all pulled and get “old man” dentures.   Upon my initial consultation, Dr. Garcia said, “Absolutely not, you are only 46 yrs old, let us come up with a plan and we’ll get back to you.” Within a week, an affordable plan was presented to me and I was on my way to having that “Bright Smile” I once had years ago. Now 5 months later, I am once again confident about my smile and have Bright Smiles to thank for it…. Dr. Garcia is so talented and creative….a real “dentistry genius”!! I highly recommend Bright Smiles Dental Studio for all your dentistry needs.  Luiza, office manager, and Jill, dental assistant, became like family to me after all my visits over the past 5 months.  As a team, they possess not only stellar dentistry work, but amazing customer service as well. Give them a call today, and set up your free consultation…you will not regret it, they truly changed my life!!

Bright Smiles has changed the way I feel about going to the dentist and Dr. Garcia has absolutely changed my life (more on that later). First and foremost, when you step into this place, you feel like you are in a very expensive dental office. It’s clean and aesthetically beautiful. It’s clear that there was a lot of thought put into making this place beautiful. Luisa is a wonderful receptionist and makes scheduling a breeze. During my first exam, I had x-rays taken. They were super fast and easy. When Dr. Garcia came in, he took so much time to explain the x-rays to me. I’ve never had a dentist take so much time to explain my x-rays, especially because I had no issues with my teeth. This was just a routine appointment. After the basic stuff, I told Dr. Garcia about how I was unhappy with my smile. My teeth were straight and healthy. Most people would say I had nearly perfect teeth. But I wasn’t happy with the size and position of my lateral incisors. Dr. Garcia agreed and we went over options. He was honest with me about how Invisalign was pricey and he didn’t know if I could achieve what I wanted with the express package. He told me veneers were cheaper and would also allow me to lengthen the teeth, which would take my smile a step further. I was a little hesitant because of my experience with veneers before. I have veneers on my central incisors (two front teeth) because of a dead tooth from an accident when I was young. I went to a “celebrity” dentist in Beverly Hills who charged almost $5000 for two veneers. When I finally got them, I hated them. They were huge and bulky and overpowered the teeth next to them, which is why I was in this position. Dr. Garcia just seemed like he was different. He assured me we would get the result I wanted. So I decided to do it. The veneers were only $1050 a tooth which is an incredible price. The process was literally painless. I didn’t need any numbing because Dr. Garcia did minimal shaving of my natural tooth. He made the temporary veneers, which were impressively realistic, and I wore those for two weeks. When I came back for my permanent veneers, he took off my temporaries and then I started to feel a little pain. He numbed me very quickly and then it was smooth sailing from there. The thing I absolutely loved is that he showed me my veneers before he cemented them on. I wish the other “celebrity” dentist did that for me because I would have told him I hated them! When I saw my new teeth I was so happy. They were EXACTLY what I wanted. When I left there, I was a whole new woman. I can’t believe how amazing my smile looks. I’m almost upset I didn’t do this sooner! I was suffering for so long and this process was so quick and easy! Dr. Garcia is a perfectionist and he gave me exactly what I wanted. I am super picky and he went above and beyond my expectations. I actually love going to the dentist now and he has restored my faith in cosmetic dentistry and has made my confidence skyrocket!

My family and I have been seeing Dr. Carlos García for a few years now and he is an amazing dentist with a wonderful team behind him. Everyone at the office really cares about your health and it’s as if they are all part of your extended family.   You can tell Dr. Carlos is genuinely passionate about dentistry and the health of his patients. That’s why he’s so great at was he does. Most importantly, he takes the time to listen to you as a patient and address any questions which is always greatly appreciated. The level of service and professionalism at this dental office is possibly the best that I have experienced in any medical setting.  I can gladly say that I look forward to all my dental visits. Thank you Bright Smiles team for going out of your way to make every visit extraordinary.

Robin O. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


yes, this IS “as good as it gets”! dr. garcia has been my dentist for about 10 years now and i would drive to see him if he moved his office. if everyone had a dentist like dr. garcia, no one would be afraid of dental work. dr. garcia and all of his staff are so caring, patient and professional. it’s not easy to find people who genuinely care about patients – you’re not just a file or a number here. i have had a lot of work done over the years and each time, he explained my options, showed me on the images what/where he was talking about and answered any questions i had. he explains post-care too; as well as his hygienist who always explains the hows and whys of day-to-day dental care. one of the great things about this dental office is that all the equipment is the latest technology. he is able to make crowns while you wait so you don’t have to make multiple appointments like before. i have a busy schedule, so the time saving factor of having a very modern and digital office is awesome. parking is street parking (turn your wheels to the curb) but i have never had a problem finding a parking space close to the office. when someone asks for a dentist recommendation, i recommend dr. garcia 100%. you won’t find a better dentist (regular or cosmetic) nor a nicer office staff in LA!

This is the BEST dentist I’ve ever been to (and I don’t like going to the dentist…) I automatically trust Dr. Garcia because he went to USC, as did I 🙂 My first visit to this dentist office was for an emergency procedure, actually. I had a REALLY bad abscess and had to have an emergency extraction and they gave me as much numbing as they possibly could. Although I could still feel some of the work the dentist was doing, they reassured me the entire time, insisted they were going to completely clean out the infection, and gave me breaks whenever it got to be too much. The dentist was thorough and made absolutely sure the area was inspected completely before stopping. Keep in mind, that was the most traumatic dental issue I’ve had, since then I have been back for cleanings, check-ups, and cavity fillings, and I have since never felt a thing when they’re working on me. In total, they have worked on 5 different teeth and I have not had issues with any of them. The receptionist, Lisa, is SUPER nice, always accommodating with appointments and worked with me on getting my Care Credit limit increased to cover the cost of my first procedure. They even gave me several months to pay off the excess that I owed them, a little at a time during the process. Dr. Garcia is honest and kind and makes the patient feel like they are valued and important to the practice. The office is always bright and clean, has ample comfortable seating, and I have never had to wait more than 5 minutes to see the doctor. I would HIGHLY recommend this dentist office to anyone seeking superior quality dental work in a friendly, professional environment.

Dr. Garcia in my opinion is the most highly skilled, patient and honest dentist. He saved my life. When I came to him I had the beginning stages of cardiovascular disease and if I hadn’t of got a deep cleaning when I did I probably would have died. I can never be ever so thankful enough to him and his wonderful staff so supportive and kind I look forward to going in for work. I always had a horrible phobia towards dentists and I mean all of them which that is no longer an issue after meeting Dr. Garcia. He was a true good experience that healed me from never seeing a dentist again and if he were to take his practice somewhere else I would have to follow him. He literally is the only dentist I trust he get a triple five gold star Mark from me.

My experience with Dr. Carlos Garcia was phenomenal. His staff Lisa, and his other assistants are really nice and polite. I am very happy with the end result of my teeth and how they turned out. I can smile confidently now, thanks to Dr. Garcia. Last, I would like to comment on one of the patient’s experience that she had with this same doctor. One critique doctor told a patient that she had had ‘too many radiations’ from Dr. Garcia. Based on my own experience with Dr. Garcia, he did on me the x rays necessary for a successful procedure, and indeed I am very pleased with my results. The x rays are necessary, and he knows what he is doing. I cannot recommend him enough.

Kyle C. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve gone to Dr. Garcia for the past year and have never felt so welcomed in a dentist office before! The receptionist is ALWAYS super nice and she and the doctors are very understanding about payments for dental care. As a 20-something trying to make ends meet, I couldn’t afford the $3750 I needed for my emergency extraction and crown but they allowed me to max out my Care Credit card and then gave me 9 MONTHS to pay off the remaining $750…seriously these people are amazing. As far as Dr. Garcia specifically, he is awesome. He always makes me feel comfortable and is ENCOURAGING about health tips, not judgmental like a lot of dentists I’ve been to. Plus he’s also an alum of USC so I love going to a fellow Trojan! I would HIGHLY recommend this dentist office to anyone of any age at any time. Love love love them – never thought I’d say that about a dentist.

I was in so much pain that I was about to go to the emergency room because I couldn’t with my teeth pain. This was at 4 in the morning. never had I felt a pain like that. at 8:00am I called Dr. Garcias office and told them that I was in pain and they made space to see me. I was in so much pain because i had to get 2 root canals done since my nerve had been damaged. i was scared of going to the dentist during these months because of covid but as soon as i stepped into the dental office and was great by the staff thats AMAZING very caring and loving i felt safe. they are disinfecting everything all the time making sure tat everything is clean and sanitized. i have had bad experiences with dentist but Dr.Garcia is just amazing he helped me with my pain and my damaged teeth. i don’t like to write reviews but Dr.Garcias and his staff deserve to be recognized because they are AMAZING! i would highly recommend Dr.Garcia!

First time in a long time getting my teeth checked out and Dr. Garcia was fantastic. First off his receptionist and all the workers are fabulous. They’re very attentive and extremely professional. They are on time and always with a smile on their faces, bright ones too 😉
Dr. Garcia himself is very friendly and thorough with his exams. The equipments he was using were very up to date and new. For example the last time I took photos of my teeth it required me to be in a giant room with a heavy jacket on top of me and the technician running in and out of the room each time he / she has to change the positioning of the mouth gear. But not here. They used hand held cameras and the whole thing was done in 7 minutes. No one ran, no giant jackets necessary.  After going over each teeth, literally, Dr. Garcia and I decided on a plan together to get the the teeth that needed some attention fixed and polished.  I’m extremely happy with my decision to go see Dr. Garcia and I can’t wait to get started on the journey of having a bright smile 🙂

I love Bright Smiles Dental Studio! I began as a patient there about a year and a half ago. When I first arrived, I hadn’t been to the dentist in over 5 years. Dr. Garcia and his amazing staff helped me get my teeth clean and healthy again while ensuring that I felt comfortable. I returned in February this year to address some staining I had left on my teeth after braces. After a careful analysis, Dr. Garcia came up with a plan to perfect my pearly whites. I am beyond satisfied with my teeth and can’t stop showing them off to my family and friends. I am so thankful for Bright Smiles, Louisa, Jill, Dr. Garcia, and all the other staff members I have encountered during my visits. Whether you need a routine dental check-up or something more involved, this studio will leave you feeling confident and proud of your smile!

The experience was great. The office is clean and modern, and he has state-of-the-art equipment. The staff is friendly, courteous, and efficient. Dr. Garcia is the best. His work is painless, and the results are outstanding. I had a new crown installed on my last visit. He has a new computer controlled machine that made a new crown for me as I waited. He designed a crown that was the perfect shape. He then painstakingly and patiently blended a color to match my surrounding teeth. He is a perfectionist and achieved a perfect result. In addition to his dentistry skills, he clearly and patiently explains the problem with your teeth and gives you options for the treatment. He listens to your inputs, and you have a say in the process. On a scale of 0 to 10 (with 10 being best) I rate Dr. Garcia a 10 plus.

Dr. Garcia and his staff are amazing! I have so much dental work that I needed to do and I was ignoring it because it was so overwhelming for me. When I made my first appointment with him, I explained the reason behind why I have waited so long to be seen. Dr. Garcia was so understanding and discussed all options with me and not only told me what he was planning, but took the time to educate me about all the problems I had and the reason behind it. Also, he is so gentle and I did not feel any pain or discomfort . I am truely seeing the light at the end of the tunnel now with all my dental work.  Also, his dental higenist Rubina is amazing! She is so passionate about her work and is also very honest and gentle .  Overall, this has been an awesome experience! Thank you Dr. Garcia and staff .

November 9, 2015 It is more than a decade that I visit Dr. Garcia, DDS for any of my dental health issues and problems that I have to encounter. This is the dentist I admire more than any other dentist that I used to know. During all these years I visit Dr. Garcia because I finally had found a dentist I would go to without any fears that would promote anxiety/panic attacks. So it is my privilege to acknowledge Dr. Garcia and consider him the BEST one for he is one terrific dentist with abundant talents and great expertise. He is professional, intelligent with tremendous knowledge in all dentistry avenues, procedures. He is a good- natured humanitarian with good manners, demonstrating outstanding services to his patients. He always treats his patients with integrity and compassion. Dr. Garcia has an impeccable reputation among his colleagues, employees, and in the local community  for he endorsed his good work and good name. Recently I visited Dr. Garcia couple of times for my bridge replacement, and a root canal. I should say, he handled both procedures gently, meticulously and masterfully, checking back with me almost every second asking me how I was feeling during the treatment. His sincerely gentle attitude touched my heart, and impacted me positively transmitting peace and relaxation all the time. No pain in the beginning and no pain afterwards. While working on my teeth he would explain step by step, patiently what he was doing to his dental assistants Anoush and Lakresha who were assisting him knowledgeably and effectively. Both of them were excellent. Even I learnt a lot while the doctor was working on my teeth. Doctor Garcia has an excellent office team under his supervision and management. They are all knowledgeable, friendly, dedicated, compassionate employees, and the office manager Luisa always radiates  confidence, peace and joy. She does her duties in excellence. From the entrance of the office where a framed poster is hanging on the wall with the saying “Everybody smiles in the same language” into the office you see everybody smiling, including the doctor, greeting and welcoming you as their own. Thus,  I certainly would recommend everyone to choose Dr. Carlos Garcia  “an Oscar winning Dentist” and you will never regret it because there is nobody else like him. In faith and gratitude Ophelia G. B.A. of Arts, M.A. in Linguistics

If you could step into WONDERLAND – instead of just imagining it – then that place would be the dental office of Dr. Carlos Garcia. In this office headed by a highly trained and talented dentist, all of my expectations were met without compromise. In fact, my experiences based on over a year’s worth of his services, can be summed up using what I’d like to call “The Three P’s”. First, the office personnel is among the most POLITE of any team of assistants that I’ve ever encountered. This became evident from my initial triage with their Treatment Manager, Luisa. She was both efficient and exact in considerately assessing my needs and scheduling an appointment with the Doctor ( who by surprise, along with the rest of the staff, came out to greet me at the reception desk). This same POLITE and friendly character has remains throughout all of my subsequent visits. Secondly, Dr. Garcia has proven to be an extremely PATIENT man.  Moreover, patience seems to be a part of his inherent DNA. In that regard, he has always taken time to listen to and understand my specific needs and wants; then, interpret them to my satisfaction. My beautiful teeth are a testament to this fact. With Dr. Garcia, PATIENCE is truly a virtue. Thirdly, every second that I’ve spent in the Doctor’s office can be summed up in the word…..PROFESSIONAL. From the lack of having to wait beyond my appointed time in the lobby, to the Doctor spending the appropriate time with me in procedure, to the assessment of all final results and correct billing, not a single step was left to chance. In today’s world replete with shoddy workmanship, false advertising and harmful medical practices, it is a rarity to find this level of hands-on PROFESSIONAL service. As a result of their practice based on “The Three P’s” (POLITE, PATIENT, and PROFESSIONAL), I attest to the fact that Dr. Carlos Garcia and his staff will: “Make your smiles…..SMILE”!!

It is always a pleasant experience going to Dr. Garcia’s office. I used to hate going to the dentist as most people do but about 5 years ago my mom told me about Bright Smiles so I gave it a try and it was one of the best decisions I have ever made regarding my look and health. Dr. Garcia treats me like family but at the same time is very professional. His skills are above any dentist I have ever seen (I have seen a lot because I love candy). Before starting any procedure he makes certain that I am in complete comfort and I have never felt any pain while in his office. It is also impressive seeing all the new products he uses because it ensures the best possible outcome. I also really appreciate that Dr. Garcia doesn’t shame me or make me feel bad about my multiple cavities and bad teeth but he gives me pointers to improve it and actually helps me rather than judge me unlike so many dentists I have met in the past. The main thing that makes me respect the Dr. and trust him is every time he works on my teeth he always explains to me what the procedure is in and why it is necessary in detail. Dr Garcia is the best dentist but behind every good dentist is an amazing staff. Louiza is his main receptionist and she is always very kind and extremely helpful, this office would not be complete without her. Rubina is a hygienist that has cleaned my teeth before and she did and amazing job. Because of Dr. Garcia and his staff I will be a member until my teeth fall off (maybe even after that). It is so hard to choose the right dentist because some are dishonest or not responsible but Dr. Garcia won’t let you down.

Dr. Garcia and his staff are amazing! I have so much dental work that I needed to do and I was ignoring it because it was so overwhelming for me. When I made my first appointment with him, I explained the reason behind why I have waited so long to be seen. Dr. Garcia was so understanding and discussed all options with me and not only told me what he was planning, but took the time to educate me about all the problems I had and the reason behind it. Also, he is so gentle and I did not feel any pain or discomfort . I am truely seeing the light at the end of the tunnel now with all my dental work. Also, his dental higenist Rubina is amazing! She is so passionate about her work and is also very honest and gentle . Overall, this has been an awesome experience! Thank you Dr. Garcia and staff .

Today I wish to raise a glass of wine which I was given as a gift for referring a coworker to the Bright Smiles Dental Studio, and make a toast to the most admirable, professional, honest and generous, a great expert, and award winning dentist Dr. Carlos Garcia, and his incomparable, most wonderful team. He always impresses me with his captivating smile, the reflection of his heart and soul, and I always feel  deep in my heart that everything is going to be just wonderful. Dr. Garcia is the only doctor, I can go to without any anxiety attacks, without any fears in my mind.  Doctor Garcia is a true life saver, panic reliever, a great teacher, a remarkable person, and a terrific dentist. Sometimes no words can express what your heart feels. Yesterday I had a dental appointment with Dr. Garcia who handled a few procedures in less than an hour; I can attest Dr. Garcia did a miracle work, and her assistant Jill was excellent. No pain during the procedure, and no pain later. I am delighted to also tell what a perfect work he did while working on my root canal two weeks ago, and how wise his advice was to continue, and finish the dental issues I had. And yesterday when the doctor finished his work, I just wanted to scream and tell everybody, “Who are you waiting for? What are you waiting for? Just pick up the phone and call 818. 249.1819, get an appointment and visit Bright Smiles for a consultation, talk to staff, enjoy the clean and classy dental clinic, and feel the difference comparing with many other dental clinics. Enjoy the gentle and courteous, welcoming attitude of the office manager Luisa, who will answer all your questions with great pleasure and patience. No more complications, no more fears, just because in Bright Smiles everybody smiles brighter and more genuinely, and sincerely, because they are confident about their Doctor, about their office, about their sophisticated technological equipment, because they have affordable dental care, free consultation, gentle dental care, they are available on some Saturdays, they give you  emergency appointments, and provide a variety services; such as; a root canal, bridge, teeth whitening &, dental implants, veneers, with top rated, top-notch medical, dental equipment, and medication.
After all their role is simple to always perform better and better and make all the customers happy and proud,  and ensure that they receive the best treatment, and come back to Bright Smile. Bright Smiles Dental Studio is a true blessing to me, and Dr. Garcia is Godsend for me. With this said, from the deep bottom of my heart, I wish to say “Thank You” all for your outstanding job eternally. May God continue to pour His Blessings upon “Bright Smile Dental Studio !!! In faith and gratitude, Ophelia G. BA, MA in Linguistics

The greatest thing about Dr. Garcia, besides his technical perfection, is that while he’s working on you, and he asks you if you’re doing OK, he actually makes the effort to make eye contact with you, and he waits to receive your acknowledgment. Amazing! He genuinely cares, and that level of caring is overflowing from every single person who works in his office — which feels like a spa, BTW! The other great thing about Dr. Garcia is how he shows you the work in progress in the big screen — it actually makes the process interesting. I found Dr. Garcia through my son’s orthodontist when I got very sick with a double tooth infection, but couldn’t bear to go to my previous dentist. Dr. Garcia’s amazing receptionist, Luiza, gave me excellent advice that probably saved the infection from progressing to sepsis (she had me get antibiotics from my medical doc because Dr. Garcia was on vacation), and then she fit me in as the first appointment upon Dr. Garcia’s return. After a lifetime of miserable dental experiences, Dr. Garcia, Dr. Gamichi (the equally skilled and compassionate periodontist in the office), and each hygienist and assistant who took care of me over many visits, have turned my dental life around. I look forward to going to the dentist because here it is more like visiting with your favorite family and friends. Thank you all — can’t wait til my next visit! (Never thought I’d say anything like that about a dentist. Really, I would give 10 stars if I could.)

Dr. Carlos Garcia and his staff are just amazing and on top of everything ! This was my first visit in to the office due to me having teeth sensitivity and the office manager Luiza was great in helping me fill out the new patient paperwork and very nice ! The assistant Lakeisha was also very nice and explained what she was going to do which I appreciated very much because I get very nervous. Dr. Garcia also did an excellent job at finding what was causing my teeth sensitivity and was able to fix the problem right away! Might I add he was very gentle doing the job. Thank you for all the amazing work you did ! Definitely coming back for any future dental needs I will have!

Over the past decades I’ve had my share of nightmare experiences with dentists.  After years gone by, I had no choice to go and see a dentist due to my tooth aches. I decided to call the 800 – dentist and based on the insurance and where i lived, they recommended Dr.Garcia. I made an appointment with the receptionist Luisa, which by the way she is an exceptional person. Prior walking in, I had my doubts again. I met Dr.Garcia for the very first time, and after speaking with him for couple of minutes, I felt very comfortable. After they took couple of X ray’s,  he returned and he went over couple of critical things that needed to be done first. Over the past couple weeks of visits, I can truly say that I’ve found a dentist that I love. Last words, Dr.Garcia is Half man & half AMAZING!!!!.
Thank you sooooo much Dr.Garcia for the best experience I’ve ever had. You are truly humble, caring and patient person that I ever met in my life.
