Dr. Dana Doan

Dr. Dana Doan is a board-certified pediatric dentist who truly believes in the early prevention of dental problems and educating families about life-long healthy teeth. She uses age-appropriate techniques to provide exceptional care for you and your children. Getting to know the uniqueness of each child, building a trusting relationship, and understanding each family’s individual needs are how she delivers gentle dentistry and creates positive dental experiences. In college, while teaching kindergarten and first grade Sunday school, Dr. Doan realized how rewarding it was to work with children, so she pursued a career that did just that!

Dr. Doan has been a life-long resident of the Dallas/Fort Worth area and graduated summa cum laude from the University of Texas at Arlington with an undergraduate degree in Biological Science. After graduating with second scholastic honors from her class at Baylor college of Dentistry, she embarked on her dream to become a Board Certified Pediatric Dentist.

Dr. Doan completed her pediatric dental residency and received a Master of Science in Dentistry at Virginia Commonwealth University. During residency she gained knowledge in all phases of pediatric dentistry, including comprehensive oral health care for the well child, the medically compromised child and the child with special health care needs. Extensive experience is provided in the areas of sedation, analgesia and general anesthesia to deliver quality dental care.

After completing residency and gaining experience in private practice for several years, Dr. Doan (“Dr. Dana” as children call her) decided to move back to the DFW area to open a one-of-a-kind pediatric dental practice. She is excited to now have the opportunity to give back to her community.

When not at the office, Dr. Doan likes to spend time with her husband Peter, their dog Lucky, and catching up with friends. Her other hobbies include traveling, cooking, playing board games, and working out!

Dr. Mikael Garces

board-certified pediatric dentist

Dr. Mikael Garces was born and raised in South Texas on her grandfather’s farm. They raised goats, cows, and enjoyed countless Texas sunsets. Her upbringing has been the framework of her personal and professional career. One of her greatest challenges was moving halfway across the state to pursue her undergraduate degree at Texas A&M University at College Station (Whoop!). She loved her time there and found a home away from home with her Aggie family. Many of those friendships continued on to Baylor College of Dentistry where she completed her Doctorate of Dental Surgery.

After receiving her doctorate, she went on to serve with the National Health Service Corps in a community health clinic in rural Colorado. This is where she found her true calling and passion–working with kiddos! Following her commitment, she returned to Dallas to complete her pediatric dental residency at Children’s Medical Center Dallas, Texas Scottish Rite, and Texas A&M College of Dentistry where she received extensive training in special health care needs and comprehensive dental care under both general anesthesia and oral sedation.

Best pediatric dental visit we ever had!

Kids were shy at first but everyone was so friendly and personable! Dr. Doan is so passionate about helping children establish habits for life long dental health and suggested personalized recommendations on how to prevent cavities. Kids left with smiles and prizes. I left with so much great knowledge!! The office is cute and aesthetic too!

I would definitely recommend to a friend!

I took my 2 kids under 2 for a routine checkup and was there for maybe 30 minutes but we did not mind a single second. We were called to our room, seen by the dentist, scheduled for the next checkup and out the door quickly. Kids left with smiles and prizes. I left with so much great knowledge!! The office is cute and aesthetic too!

Dr Dana is very knowledgeable and comes highly recommended. With her years of experience , she will try to do what is best for each child. As a mother, she will instill her own knowledge to share with new parents to not only improve oral. Kids left with smiles and prizes. I left with so much great knowledge!! The office is cute and aesthetic too!
