  • 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. 

    Dr. Richard J. Garcia earned his degree from Temple University School of Dentistry. He is a member of the American Dental Association (ADA), Florida Dental Association (FDA), Collier County Dental Association (served as President) and the International Congress of Oral Implantologists (ICOI). He has completed courses through Las Vegas Institute (LVI), Pankey Institute, and Dawson Seminars.

    Dr. Garcia has provided quality dental care in his well-established practice for over 20 years.

    Dr. Garcia and his knowledgeable and friendly staff look forward to welcoming you to the practice and helping you achieve your dental goals.

  • Robin Garcia
    Business Manager

    I have been married to Dr. Garcia since 1991. 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. After many years of being 'behind the scene,' I am back in the practice working at the front desk. 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, but 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 truly 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.
