Treatment Coordinator and Dental Receptionist
I have the distinct pleasure of welcoming all patients, new and old, to our office. I manage the flow of dental visits, process insurance and referrals, and monitor the daily schedule in an effort to make the office run as efficiently as possible. I have been a clinical chair side assistant for more than twenty years and I bring that experience to the front desk when discussing treatment procedures with patients and when advocating for them with their insurance company. I love getting to know our patients and building a trusting rapport. The golden rule applies in the way that I strive to provide the type of care that I would want for myself or my loved ones. Sometimes helping patients understand their insurance needs and relieving them of some of the administrative chores can make dentistry a much more pleasant experience.
I am so blessed to be married for 35 years to a wonderful man. We have a 34-year-old daughter and a 31-year-old son, both of whom we are very proud. We all love to get out to the wilderness whenever we can to hike and enjoy nature. I also really enjoy cooking and throwing a great party from time to time.
Registered Dental Assistant
I graduated from the Santa Cruz ROP (Regional Occupational Program) in 2013 and have been working chairside ever since. Over the years, I have worked in private practice as well as two community dental clinics. I enjoy trying to make every dental experience as comfortable and pleasant as possible and helping patients bring out their smiles.
Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my four year old daughter, Aubrie. We enjoy walks on the beach, Target runs, and lots of ice cream dates!
Registered Dental Hygienist
I help patients achieve optimal oral health by providing preventive and therapeutic periodontal services. My goal is to provide dental hygiene care in a thorough, personalized, and gentle manner. I enjoy seeing patients comfortable in the dental chair and pleased to learn strategies that improve their health. I began my career as a clinical dental hygienist in 1987, obtained my bachelor’s degree in 1988, and often attend continuing education courses. After all these years, I still love to see health improve and to hear from patients how much better a healthy mouth feels.
When away from the office, my time is filled with gardening, making jewelry, music, and home improvements.
Registered Dental Hygienist
I help patients with their oral health by providing preventive care, periodontal therapy, and patient education. I graduated in 2003 from Cabrillo College with a degree in Dental Hygiene and began my clinical career. I enjoy being a dental hygienist and strive to treat patients with kindness, compassion and quality care. Patient comfort is of the utmost importance to me. I enjoy taking continuing education courses and learning about current dental research and treatment.
Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my husband and three kids. I also enjoy jogging, baking and gardening.
