Our People


Grant McGann, DDS
Founder and Surgeon

Dr. Grant McGann’s genuine care for his patients shines through in his work day after day. As a board certified oral surgeon, his career has been dedicated to performing, advancing, and teaching oral and maxillofacial surgery. This expertise is the foundation of McGann Facial Design (MFD), an exclusive San Diego based private oral surgery practice specializing in treating patients around the globe who are dissatisfied with their facial features and wish to change the way they FACE the world.

A native Californian, Dr. McGann was born and raised in Laguna Beach, California. He received his undergraduate degree in Health Promotion Disease Prevention from the University of Southern California in 2001 and his Doctorate in Dental Surgery degree from the University of the Pacific School of Dentistry in 2004. He graduated with honors from both dental and undergraduate schools, and has received numerous awards for his academic and clinical work. In 2008, after graduation, he completed his Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery residency at the prestigious Washington Hospital Center in Washington, D.C.

Giving back is important to Dr. McGann, as evidenced by his frequent surgical missions to Tanzania, The Philippines, Belgium, and Taiwan to bring much needed help to the underserved. In honor of his dedication, he was awarded the 2008 American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons Resident Leadership and Community Service Award.

Dr. McGann’s passions include spending time with his wife, Sarah, and their beautiful children, Lily, Dean and Knox. They love spending time enjoying San Diego’s great coast, either surfing, playing in the sand, or taking their boat out to fish.

Office Manager & Hospital Coordinator

Natalia is responsible for coordinating in-office and hospital-based procedures. Her style is to always find a way to make people feel comfortable and deliver the highest level of care and compassion for all McGann Facial Design patients.

She enjoys spending time with her husband, James, and their 2 English Springer Spaniels, Winston and Addison. She also has a handful of chickens that supply her with fresh eggs daily.

Surgical Assistant

Nick grew up in Huntington Beach and later served our country for eight years as a U.S. Marine.  In his free time he enjoys spending time with his wife Carla, playing video games and golfing.  He loves working at McGann Facial Design because it allows him to connect with his fellow veteran community in San Diego while making a difference in peoples’ lives and smiles.

Surgical Assistant

Katie comes to us with 6 years of pediatric dentistry experience but her spunk and charm has proven to be priceless with patients of all ages. She has always known that oral surgery is her calling because of the more technical and unique things it can bring. When she’s not taking care of patients and making them laugh, she is at home with her dogs Douglas and Nala or headed on a vacation with her husband Chris. They cannot wait to welcome their first child, a sweet baby girl in the Summer of 2022. She will be sure to start a fun conversation with any nervous patient to help make them feel more comfortable.

Surgical Assistant

We are so excited to have Dianna as part of our surgical team, she has been a dental assistant for over 15 years and an oral surgery assistant for 6 years. When not at work she is spending time outdoors camping or reading books on her favorite subjects (extra-terrestrials and big foot 😊). She stays busy with her two sons aged 8 and 10.

Surgical Assistant

We are so grateful to have Carla round out our surgical assistant team as our newest assistant. She came to us with 10 years of dental assisting and 8 years of oral surgery experience. When not at work she is hiking the many San Diego trails, cheering her 10 year old daughter on at a soccer field or driving her 15 year old son around town.


Shana is a wonderful addition to our team. Her sweet smile and gentle voice is a great way to welcome patients in to our practice. She is a San Diego native and loves all outdoor activities from running to snowboarding depending on the season. She feels so fortunate to live in a city with so many great restaurants to check out on a daily basis or visiting a comedy club to have a good laugh which definitely contributes to her joyful personality.
