Dr. Alana Macalik, or “Dr. Mac,” is passionate about dentistry. Her interest in becoming a dentist began at the age of twelve when she got braces (a rite of passage that most tweens and teens would dread). But Macalik actually loved every minute of wearing braces and it was her caring and compassionate orthodontist that made all the difference. From that time on, she knew that helping people smile would be her life’s work.
Born and raised in Richardson, Texas, Dr. Macalik graduated from the University of Texas in Austin and Baylor College of Dentistry. She is a member of the American Dental Association, the Academy of General Dentistry as wll as the Dallas County Dental Society and the Texas Dental Association.
Dr. Macalik enjoys living and working in Arlington because it has a small town feel, while still offering a lot of great amenities. And that is exactly what you will experience when you walk through her doors… a state-of-the-art office with the latest high-tech equipment, yet all the comforts you need to know that you and your family are in good hands. She loves interacting with patients, helping those in pain, and, of course, creating beautiful smiles. She also continues to hone her skills through various continuing education courses and training opportunities, including implant training and laser certification. She is also a certified provider of Invisalign®.
Outside of the office, Dr. Macalik loves playing softball, cheering for the Texas Longhorns and Rangers, traveling and spending time with her family. She is active in her church and has participated in several mission trips to Africa, the Amazon, and Latin America volunteering at dental clinics.
