Dr Mariluz Garcia
Dr Mariluz Garcia values the privilege dentists have in being able to educate and motivate patients to be in control of their own oral health. She believes everyone can learn to appreciate and care for their teeth with confidence. Mariluz wants to enable her patients to enjoy having a beautiful smile for life and her job allows her to do just that every day.
Mariluz completed her Bachelor of Oral Health in Dental Science and Graduate Diploma of Dentistry locally at Griffith university. Before Dr Garcia became a dentist, she dental assisted at several Coastal Dental Care practices. This allowed her to pick up countless tips and tricks from many experienced dentists, therapists, and assistants.
Dr Garcia has a Latin heritage but grew up in Sydney before moving to the Gold Coast. After living here for the last 5 years surrounded by beaches and hinterland, Mariluz can’t see herself ever leaving.
Mariluz loves being able to put nervous patients at ease and provide them with a positive dental experience. She decided for a career in dentistry after shadowing her local orthodontist when she was 15 as part of a school “work experience week”. She enjoyed helping people, working in a team and the hands-on component of the job.
In her time away from dentistry, Mariluz enjoys spending time outdoors having picnics, hiking, and paddle boarding. She also likes entertaining friends at home with great food and board games.
