Our Staff

Dr. Richard J. Garcia, DMD

I have been a dentist in Naples since 1998.  Through the years I have had the privilege and pleasure to meet so many wonderful people.  I love to partner with my patients and provide them with the beautiful, healthy dental care they desire.  Along the way I love to learn about my patients; their interests and stories.  It is one of my favorite parts of what I do.  I am passionate about providing my patients with the best, most up to date services the field of dentistry has to offer.  My promise to you is that I will treat you the way I would treat a member of my own family.  I welcome you to my office.  I have a wonderful, well-trained team to take care of you.  I can't wait to meet you and I look forward to seeing your smile. 

Robin Garcia - Business Manager

I have been married to Dr. Garcia for 24 years.  We have 3 wonderful children that many have watched grow up in our photos in the church bulletins.  I have worked for the practice in many capacities since 1998.  Although I am not in the office on a daily basis, I am still very much involved in the practice.  My favorite part of dentistry is meeting our patients.  We have the greatest patients!  I know going to the dentist is not anyone's favorite thing to do.  We try to make it as pleasant as possible.  We will do our best to provide not only great dental care but unparalleled customer service.  My husband is truely passionate about providing you with the best dental care possible.  He is a kind and compassionate person.  I am still amazed at how at ease he can make someone feel. Our hope is that you not only love the healthy, beautiful smile we can give you but that you will enjoy the experience of coming to our office as well.  

Mary Diaz - Office Manager

I joined Dr. Garcia's practice in 2011.   As the Office Manager, I am committed to providing our patients with exceptional care and making their dental visit a pleasant one.  I am blessed to work with Dr. Garcia and our team of dedicated professionals who share in my commitment to exceed our patient's expectation.  I value and appreciate the trust that our patients place in us. My past work experiences include working in a dental office, as well as owning and operating our family business for over 24 years.  When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my family, my husband and two sons.


Donna Garrick - Receptionist

I joined Dr. Garcia's administrative staff as a part-time employee in February 2015.  I am so very fortunate to work side by side with Mary as we welcome you to our practice.  I look forward to greeting you whether by phone or in person.  We want you to feel comfortable and confident from the moment you arrive.  With years of administrative experience in the dental field, schools, and office settings, my main priority has always been to serve and meet other's needs.  Dr. Garcia and his professional team of dental assistants and hygienists make meeting your needs easy and natural.  I am thrilled to live in Naples with my husband, two grown children, and their families.  Life could not get any better!  Although originally from Georgia, we have been in Naples since 1995... I call it home.  We enjoy the lush beauty of SW FL and all the benefits it brings. 

Daisy Bedolla - Dental Assistant

I  started with the practice in February 2015.  I am blessed to be part of a great team who takes pride in their patients.  As I work with Dr. Garcia and his team I have gained tremendous knowledge of the dental field.  Working with them, I feel right at home, like my second family.  In my free time, I enjoy barbecues and outdoor activities with my family.


Cheryl Cross - Dental Hygienist

My career began as a dental assistant for my family dentist in NJ.  I loved dentistry and chose to pursue my education in Dental Hygiene at the Univ. of Bridgeport in Conn.  Following many years of practice in NJ, I moved to Naples in 1998.  The best part of dentistry has been working with patients that feel like family and the many friendships with my fellow team members that have endured beyond the office.  I have always loved the outdoors and have enjoyed kayaking and hiking in many areas.  These days I am enjoying some new adventures and travel with three small grandchildren!
