Dr. Juan Carlos Cruz

Dr. Juan Carlos Cruz-Alzate is the newest addition to the GDC Smiles family as our Associate Dentist. He was born and raised in Colombia, South America where he first fell in love with the field of dentistry. There is something about seeing the joy in a patient’s eyes after giving them a smile they can be proud of, that fills Dr. Cruz with pride and genuine fulfillment in his work and career. He enjoys the challenge of transforming the many smiles that come through our office. You can easily find Dr. Cruz chatting with his patients about life, cracking jokes, and being intentional with his time answering their questions and easing away from their concerns. In his free time, Dr. Cruz enjoys exploring his new home of Gainesville, Georgia with his wife and 15-year-old son. He loves the outdoors, and if he’s not in the office you can find him traveling, reading, biking and hiking in the North Georgia Mountains.
