Jessica Garcia, DMD, MS
Dr. Jessica Garcia was born and raised in Jacksonville, Florida. Her love of sweets developed at a young age, and it wasn’t long before she suffered her first toothache. After experiencing the magic of dentistry and pain relief with her pediatric dentist, Dr. Garcia quickly changed her career endeavors from cowgirl to dentistry.
During her undergraduate studies at the University of Florida, Dr. Garcia developed a love for community service and outreach. She participated in mission trips, such as hurricane relief in New Orleans after Katrina, and served as an assistant counselor for orphan children in Ecuador. While in dental school at the University of Florida, she helped organize trips that provided dental care to those in need in Guatemala, the Dominican Republic, and Haiti. Locally, Dr. Garcia is a frequent participant in the Florida Mission of Mercy - a clinic that provides free dental care to the underserved and underinsured in Florida - those that would otherwise go without dental care.
Dr. Garcia served her Central Florida community as a general dentist for several years before deciding to specialize in endodontics. She discovered that relieving people of their pain with root canals was her favorite part of dentistry and dedicated years to learning the best techniques, modern equipment, and anesthetic protocols. She has been doing root canal procedures for 10 years and is currently a diplomate candidate with the American Board of Endodontics.
When Dr. Garcia met Dr. Chen, she was thrilled that they shared the same desire to help patients by relieving their pain and saving their teeth through root canal therapy and microsurgery. After taking the position at Advanced Endodontics, she expanded her training and procedure modalities to include advanced laser irrigation and Gentle Wave technology with root canal procedures, and red light therapy to reduce inflammation. Outside of work, Dr. Garcia loves to spend time with her three children: Aliana (8), Grant (6), and Jolie (4). Together, they enjoy playing sports, doing crafts, and baking. She also enjoys traveling, painting, and audiobooks. Dr. Garcia is learning Spanish and is fluent in dental terminology to better help her patients.
