Hi I am Adriana Garcia and I am a Registered Dental Assistant. I got into dentistry when I was a senior at Alamo Heights High School. I have been in dentistry for close to 50 years and have worked for Dr. Lane for about 15 years. I have assisted her in the past but currently am her Hygiene Coordinator. It has been a pleasure working for Dr. Lane since I am so diverse and can help in the front and in the back.
So when you get the phone call "This is Adriana at Dr. Lane's Office calling to remind you, you are due for your dental cleaning" that will be me.
