Dr. Daniela Garcia, DDS, MS
Dr. Garcia received her dental degree in 2008 in her home town Caracas, Venezuela. She moved to Ann Arbor, Michigan in 2009 to pursue further education in dental materials and advanced dental aesthetics. In 2012 Dr Garcia earned a postdoctoral training Master of Science from The University of Michigan School of Dentistry, and worked as a full time Clinical Assistant Professor from 2012 until 2018 at the department of Cariology Restorative Science and Endodontics with a clinical focus on both undergraduate and graduate students.
Having the opportunity to be a Clinical Assistant Professor at the University of Michigan was an amazing experience, both in the didactic portion and at the faculty clinic. At the beginning of this year Dr Garcia decided she wanted to join Ann Arbor Smiles to pursue her dream of making an impact in her community and on her patients’ lives. At the same time she’s an Adjunct Clinical Assistant Professor. She believes this way she can help more patients achieve their dental goals and to provide the adequate function and aesthetics they deserve combining the clinical and academic portion of dentistry.
Dr. Garcia has called Michigan home for the last 10 years where she enjoys spending time and having a healthy lifestyle with her family; husband Juan, son Santiago (4 y/o), daughter Anabella (2 y/o) and dog Gala. She loves to swim, practice yoga, run and spend time outside doing fun things with her family.
Dr. Garcia is a member of the ADA (American Dental Association), MDA (Michigan Dental Association) and Washtenaw Dental Society
