Dr. Ana Cariaga has been practicing in the community for over 25 years since her practice opened in the City of Industry area in 1993. She continues to provide family-oriented services for patients of all ages, including children and their parents, some of whom have been seeing her since they were kids themselves! She makes sure that patients have their concerns addressed and that they are happy with their smiles, and she works hard to educate patients on the relationship between oral and overall health.
Dr. Cariaga is a proud contributor to our community and stays involved throughout the year through school screenings, dental health education, donations and fundraisers for Soldier’s Angels, the Alzheimer’s Association and the Parkinson’s Foundation, and Christmas toy and donation drives for Hope House and Spark of Love.

She was recognized by the DC Strategic Solutions for her support in the crusade to help servicemen and servicewomen, veterans, and their families.
