Lina Garcia, DDS, DMD
Dr. Lina Garcia is a Doctor of Medical Dentistry as well as a Doctor of Dental Surgery. For over 30 years, Dr. Garcia has been dedicated to the research and teaching of alternative solutions for conventional dentistry. Dr. Garcia is also trained in cranial osteopathy and works with an osteopathic physician and a nutritionist to help guide her patients toward optimal dental and overall health.
Dr. Lina Garcia has been on staff at Alexius Medical Center in Hoffman Estates, Oral Surgery Group in Merrillville, Indiana and Methodist Hospital in Gary Indiana. She graduated from the University of Nova Friburgo Dental School in 1985 and did her residency at Sesi Hospital in Rio de Janeiro. She graduated from the Boston University Advanced Dental Program in 1991.
Dr. Garcia has trained around the world and is excited to be able to offer holistic services at her practice. She sees patients from all over the United States and worldwide, and looks forward to seeing you in her office. Dr. Garcia works very hard to accommodate out-of-state patients. If you are unable to travel, phone consultations are available by appointment. Please call our office and we will set that up for you.
Dr. Garcia believes oral health both depends upon and influences overall body health. Her holistic approach precludes a product like mercury amalgam which has structural properties conducive to tooth repair but has chemical properties (elemental mercury is a poison) that are harmful to the body.
Dr. Garcia's holistic approach also means that she is passionate about her patients interests and activities without being judgmental or closed minded.
Dr. Garcia is pictured with patient, actor, producer and screenwriter John Cusack and author Arundhati Roy who are co-authors of the recent book Things That Can and Cannot be Said.
