Liliana Garcia, DDS
Dental Department Chair
NYU College of Dentistry
I grew up in Queens, NY, and always wanted to be a doctor. As a kid, I was always putting Band-Aids on people and helping them. I’m a natural caregiver. I’ve always wanted to work in public health. I was a patient at a Community Health Center like Mountain Park, so I knew this would be a great place for me to work. My family is from Medellin, Colombia, and I’m a first-generation American.
I have a super gorgeous son and love to cook, read, travel, and dance to salsa and merengue music. People tell me I have a heart of gold, and I love hearing that!
