Registered Dental Hygienist
The best part about my profession is meeting new people and helping patients feel more at ease about coming to the dentist. I find that the best way to help patients with any dental fears is to listen, understand and address their concerns and educate them by providing the information which will help alleviate anxiety. I get the pleasure of caring for different people of unique professions and lifestyles. I work with patients to create customized daily home-hygiene routines that are easy for patients to follow. Helping a patient leave with a more fearlessly confident smile is why I love what I do!
Outside of dental hygiene I enjoy spending time with my family, swimming, checking out the latest concerts and indulging in a good book.
Working in a positive atmosphere, where every member of the team is committed to creating a good experience for each patient, makes my days a pleasure. Even more enjoyable are the conversations I have with our patients and the relationships I develop with them. I love those exchanges. I oversee our staff, and spend time with patients to help them maximize their insurance benefits and find financial arrangements that work for them and their situation. It’s a good feeling to help people get the care they need.
Outside of work, I love spending time with my family. I’m married and have two wonderful children. Tiffany is my oldest and Trevor is in high school.
Registered Dental Hygienist
The best part about my job is meeting people and learning about their life story, overall health, and oral health concerns. I treat each patient with care and help to accommodate his/her needs, especially ones with dental anxiety due to past negative experiences. It makes me happy to see my patients walking out of our practice with confidence and a brighter smile. I am passionate about my job and love coming to work each day.
Outside of work, I enjoy bike riding, hiking, traveling, cooking, wine tasting, trying new restaurants, and watching Netflix.
I love coming to work and helping all the patients that walk into our doors. To me, each patient here is not simply just a patient, but a friend. My goal is to make you smile and enjoy your time at our office and I know everyone here on our team is committed to doing that as well. I love my job here and the people I work with. That positivity adds to our wonderful atmosphere making our office a welcoming and happy place. I look forward to each day in hopes of helping our patients in whatever way I can.
Because I am originally from Washington, during my time away from the office I enjoy exploring San Francisco with my dog Poe and loving boyfriend.
Registered Dental Hygienist
The best part of being a dental hygienist, a coworker, a friend, a daughter, a sister, and a mother is human connection. My aim is to be continually in touch with the authenticity in me that connects to authenticity inside each and every one of you.
I like to read, write, scribble, cook, hike, soak in hot springs, paddle board, do yoga, and spend time with friends and family. All of the above are most perfect when practiced on a beach.
I deliver chairside assistance to Dr. Bhuva during various dental procedures, and make sure she has everything she needs to treat the patient, but I’m primarily focused on the person we’re caring for. I check to see that they’re comfortable and relaxed. I love my job because I get to meet people with so many different backgrounds. I would say my favorite part of working here is having the patients come back and say what a great team we are!
Outside of work I enjoy going out with friends, reading books, shopping, and going to concerts.
My favorite parts of my work are knowing I’ve made a patient happy, and when they tell me their visit here has been their best dental experience ever. That’s an amazing feeling. Our team is devoted to ensuring that each patient has a great visit every time. If there’s ever anything any of us can do to improve the experience, just say so. I work in our front office, greeting patients when they arrive, scheduling appointments, and helping with treatment planning, too.
During my time off, I love being with my family and working out.
I have 25 years of experience in the dental field. I have a passion for dental hygiene. As a member of ADHA, CDHA and the San Francisco Dental Hygiene Association, I love to educate my patients on the correlation between our oral health and our over all systemic health. It is very rewarding for me when my patients are wowed with the detailed cleaning that is provided for them. Each patient is different and so are their individual oral hygiene needs. Most of my time is spent educating and finding the correct hygiene solution that works best for a patient's oral hygiene needs. I enjoy volunteering for a dental non profit, Give Kids a Smile, and also volunteer at senior homes.
I spend most of my free time with family. I enjoy cooking, dancing, walking, and decorating.
Registered Dental Assistant
My favorite part of work is witnessing the heartfelt, beautiful smiles of happy patients, especially those who have recently been suffering from dental distress. Here, we focus on both remedying dental issues and preventing them, always with an emphasis on the individual’s specific needs. In addition to offering chairside assistance to our doctors during procedures, I explain treatment plans and other information to patients. I answer their questions and make sure everything is clear.
During my weekend time, I prefer to be outdoors enjoying nature, swimming at the beach, and gardening.
