Alana Macalik

Dr. Alana Macalik, or “Dr. Mac” Loves teeth.  She loves fixing teeth, restoring teeth, and making teeth great again!  She has loved teeth since she was young and had her teeth fixed.  Dr. Macalik’s goal for her Arlington Texas community is to eliminate the need for major dental work by helping educate people and through prevention.

Dr. Macalik grew up in North Dallas and has lived in the metroplex her entire life.  She went to University of Texas in Austin and went on to Baylor College of Dentistry, which is now part of the Texas A&M Health Science Center.  She loves going on mission trips all over the world to help people who have no access to dental care to receive treatment.

Dr. Macalik is married to her wonderful husband Matt and has four teenagers and two younger daughters.  In her spare time…. let’s be honest, what spare time?  If she had spare time she would spend it volunteering with her church family or crafting and gardening.
