    Jo Ann

    Office Manager

    My name is Jo Ann. I’ve been in Dentistry for 34 years. I was a Dental assistant for 15 years and managed several Dental offices. I really enjoy meeting new people. The people we see and treat are not just patients to me, I get to know them and they not only become my friend, they become part of my family. I have a compassion for patients who are fearful of the Dentist and I do my best to help them overcome their fears. I love all aspects of Dentistry. I’m very knowledgeable with all types of procedures, as well as insurances and financing options. Since working with Dr. Garcia I’ve learned even more and love that he is a perfectionist, because that is important to me. I look forward to meeting you in our office. Outside of the office I focus on my faith, family and grandkids. I enjoy spending quality time with my grandchildren along with a weekly Bible Study.
