When Dr. Erika Mendez considered a career path, she knew she wanted to do something to positively impact the lives of others. That conviction combined with her compassionate nature made family dentistry a natural choice. Sixteen years later, she knows she made the right choice. “Dentistry is a rewarding and humbling career because we’re able to make an impact on our patients’ lives,” she said. “We’re able to watch our patients go from being very self-conscious about their smiles to completely confident.”
Dr. Mendez designed state-of-the-art Skyview Dental with patients’ comfort and care in mind. “We are a family-owned practice and truly enjoy building lifelong relationships with our patients,” she says. Whether you need a routine cleaning, have missing teeth or tooth decay, or want to explore ways to make your smile more beautiful, Dr. Mendez and her experienced team of dental professionals can help. The practice offers complete family dentistry in one convenient location, serving the youngest patients getting their first tooth to adults who may want to explore Invisalign, veneers, or dentures.
Latest Dental Technology
Dr. Mendez wants to help patients maintain the highest level of oral health while making their smile look its best. She’s proud to use the latest dental technology, including intraoral scanners, dental lasers, and digital radiographs, to give her patients the most comfortable experience. And for patients who may feel nervous about visiting the dentist, Dr. Mendez offers some reassurance. “At our office, you will see the same team of professionals every time you visit,” she says. “We take the time to offer the most comfortable experience for all our patients, and also offer different forms of sedation such as nitrous oxide.”
Positive Online Reviews
The practice boasts hundreds of five-star reviews on Google, with one patient raving, “Absolutely love Dr. Mendez! She is thorough with her work, never seems to be rushed, and is extremely professional. The staff is friendly and very helpful. I would highly recommend Skyview Dental.” Another patient proclaimed, “Dr. Mendez and the rest of the staff are at the top of their game. I’m very happy to be a patient at Skyview Dental.”

Welcome Dr. Bracaglia
As one satisfied patient after another told their family and friends about their experience at Skyview Dental, Dr. Mendez’s patient base grew. It wasn’t long before she needed to add a second dentist to her practice. But not just anyone would do though. She needed to find someone who shares her patient-first mentality and her commitment to continuing education — over and above what’s required — always looking for ways to improve the patient experience and stay current with ever-advancing dental technology. When she met and interviewed Dr. Alexandra Bracaglia, she knew her search was over.
“I’m thrilled to have Dr. Bracaglia on board,” Dr. Mendez said. “Our patients are going to love her vibrant personality. With her on the team we can welcome new families, while also continuing to provide the excellent care and friendly service we’re known for.”
Meet Dr. Bracaglia
Dr. Alexandra Bracaglia — “Dr. B” to her patients — received her undergraduate degree at Texas Tech University and her DDS from University of Texas Health Science Center San Antonio Dental School. While at school, she belonged to service organizations that gave back to the community and was elected student body president. As a dentist, Dr. Bracaglia is passionate about bringing the highest quality dental care to Greater Irving and looks forward to contributing to a positive healthcare experience for her patients.
