Angela

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. 

 


Annie

Registered Dental Hygienist

My fascination with dentistry has stemmed from all the wonderful dental professionals who I came across growing up. They helped ease away any dental anxiety I had and educated me on the world of dentistry. Inspired by my experience, as a dental hygienist I try my best to ensure that my patients receive the same thorough, yet gentle, care that I received. Because every patient is unique, I take my time to get to know each person and customize his/her care based on the individuals overall health and lifestyle. 

During my free time, I tutor math, spend quality time with my love ones (including my many pets), and try to find the next coffee shop to try.

Financial Coordinator

 

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.

 


 

David

Dental Assistant

One of the best things about working for Dr. Shepard & Dr. Bhuva is the positive atmosphere from both staff and paitents. My primary position in the office is assisting in the back office, but I also assist the front office when needed. My goal is to provide our paitents the utmost quality of care.

Outside of work, I like to relax, read books and comics, build legos and robots, going to rock concerts and watching animated movies.

 


Donna

Registered Dental Hygienist

Being a hygienist is not just a job, it is a life-long career I intend to keep practicing. What drives my passion is our patients because they give me so much joy in what I do. I treat each patient as an individual and always do my best to accommodate his/her needs. Once we both establish trust and set expectations we become family & friends within the practice. That is truly the most important part of my career. After eight years on this hygiene journey, I have gladly joined this practice since November 2015, and I must say that I am truly blessed to have such a great team here at Shepard & Bhuva Dental Partners.

Outside from work, I love to hike, bike, run at the park, and gather with my wonderful husband, friends and family.

the only way to do great work is to love what you do.

Inna

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. 


 

Joana

Practice Manager

Day-to-day, you will find me tending to the daily operations of the office. I am usually behind the scenes making sure our office administrative and clinical workflow runs smoothly. My goal is to incorporate the knowledge I have acquired to equip our team and improve  patient care and experience by providing personalized service to our patients.

When I'm not at working I enjoy traveling, trying out new restaurants, taking fitness and art classes, binge-listening to audiobooks, volunteering at local non-profits and exploring the city with my other half and our rescue dog, Bailey. I also run my own floral design business part-time.

Scheduling Coordinator

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.

Registered Dental Assistant

My favorite part of work is helping patients in whatever way I can do. I do my best to help my patients feel comfortable and confident in the care I'm providing during their dental treatment. Working with doctors and our team in the office gives me the confidence that all of our patients will have their expectations consistently met. I love being a dental assistant and helping my patients maintain and achieve beautiful and healthy smiles.

On my free time, I enjoy hanging out with friends, shopping, cooking and working out.

Zina

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.
