Meet Dr. Garcia

temecula orthodontistDr. Garcia approaches orthodontics with a passion and a commitment to excellence while remembering to have some fun along the way! In his spare time, he enjoys a competitive game of golf, likes to do yoga or anything that keeps him active, and he is a serious world cup soccer fanatic. Dr. Garcia and his wife, Tanya, have lived in Temecula for over 10 years and would not choose to live anywhere else other than here with their three sons: Victor, Roberto and Alessandro.

Dr. Garcia earned his undergraduate degree from Bethany College, where he was recruited to play tennis and became an NAIA Academic All-American. He received a Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from Indiana University School of Dentistry and also completed a General Practice Residency at Indiana University Hospital. He was then accepted into the highly competitive Orthodontic Post-Doctoral program at Saint Louis University- currently considered one of the top orthodontic programs in the world. During his 30 month residency, Dr. Garcia was elected class president and earned both his orthodontic specialty certification and a Master of Science in Dentistry degree.

Dr. Garcia is a second generation orthodontist and comes from a family of physicians and dentists. He belongs to several dental professional organizations and multi-disciplinary study clubs and has twice been the president of the San Diego Academy of Orthodontists. Dr. Garcia is one of the premier providers of Invisalign in the country and even received the award for the best Class II Invisalign case in North America at the 2014 Invisalign Summit. He is on the Progressive Orthodontist Magazine Advisory Board, has been published in the American Journal of Orthodontics, attends continuing education courses throughout the year and intends to continue to maintain the practice at the cutting edge of orthodontic technology while keeping the best interest of his patients.

“I always dreamed about becoming an orthodontist like my father. I guess you could say it’s in my blood. Despite my education and experience, my father still manages to teach me things about the field. I thank him every day for the inspiration he’s been in my life.”

Our Technology

At Braces By Garcia in Temecula, CA we believe in using the most advanced orthodontic technologies available. At our orthodontic office, we offer a variety of treatment options to fit your needs including self-ligating braces and Invisalign.

metal bracesSelf-Ligating Metal Braces

Our passive self-ligating brackets are designed to move teeth faster and more comfortably than braces in the past. The archwire is held in place by a movable component instead of elastic ties, which allows your teeth to move more freely. This makes treatment more comfortable and efficient!



clear bracesClear Braces

Our clear braces use the same technology as our metal braces but they have the added benefit of being clear! That means people may not even realize you are wearing braces.





Invisalign® is a revolutionary treatment option that is popular with our teen and adult patients. Invisalign® uses a series of virtually undetectable, easy-to-use aligners that are customized for you. They are comfortable and removable so you can eat the foods you love without any restrictions and brush and floss normally to maintain a healthy smile.
