Our Doctors Show They Care Through Everything They Do
Dr. Francisco J. Garcia
Dr. Garcia comes from a long line of people in his family who have dedicated their lives to helping others live healthier. For instance, his great-grandfather was a renowned obstetrician in Venezuela, and his father founded a cardiothoracic surgery department in Merida. So, it came as no surprise that he enrolled in Boston University’s DMD program where he graduated with honors in general dentistry. From there, Dr. Garcia went on to complete a 2-year, accredited, post-doctoral degree in Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics. Skills he applies every day in his Miami Orthodontic practice.
Another thing that makes Dr. Garcia such a special orthodontist in the Miami area, is that he can speak 6 languages fluently – English, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, German, and French. This means there’s virtually no language barrier between you and a great smile when working with Dr. Garcia.
When Dr. Garcia isn’t helping his patients reach their smile goals, giving back to the community, or inspiring others around him, he’s spending quality time with his family, going on adventures, and making memories that make him smile just thinking about them.
