We recognize that all of our patients are unique and deserve to receive dental care that reflects their individual needs. Our experienced and talented dental team is committed to working with you and your family to create a comfortable, stress-free, and rewarding dental experience every time you visit our practice. We are pleased to welcome you and your family, and we look forward to working with you.
I love helping our patients have positive, easy visits. It’s a great feeling to know each patient leaves our office with confidence in our team and great oral health. I manage the day-to-day coordination between the front and back office and maintain our schedule. I also track accounts receivable and payable and our financial matters. Additionally, I assist the doctor and staff with everything needed to keep us on track and running smoothly.
I’m a single mother raising four strong, amazing little women. We love going on adventures, especially hiking and exploring new places. Most of all, we enjoy our time together.
Registered Dental Hygienist
I love educating my patients about their oral health. I show them their X-rays and intraoral photos, explaining the images and what they show about their person’s mouth. I love it when a person understands the connection between a healthy mouth and overall wellness. I evaluate oral and gum health, apply fluoride and sealants, and provide a lot of education. I teach patients the best way to brush and floss, along with healthy eating and developing great habits.
I’m married and have a young son, Maximus. I love spending time with my family. Originally from Mexico, I like going back and enjoying the beautiful beaches! I also stay physically active, exercising throughout the week. I really enjoy Zumba classes.
Front Office and Financial Coordinator
I enjoy meeting new people, welcoming them to our office, and making them feel comfortable during their visits. Dr. Patel and our team are all committed to providing the best care, that’s truly painless. This helps even the most fearful patient feel safe and they learn to relax while here. I greet patients, help them schedule visits, and verify their insurance. I also explain treatment plans and answer patient questions about the processes. Additionally, I help patients get the most from their insurance benefits.
My husband, three boys, and I live in Oakley. The boys are always on the go and keep us on our toes! As a family, we love sports! We’re big fans of the San Francisco 49ers and Giants and love watching games.
Back Office Lead Registered Dental Assistant
I like spending my days talking with and building strong relationships with our patients. They’re all fascinating people and we become friends by sharing stories about our lives. I enjoy helping my friends develop healthy smiles they love. I offer chairside assistance, supporting Dr. Patel and our patient during dental procedures. I’m in charge of setup for each day, so the office is prepped for our patients. I also handle our inventory, ordering, and stocking.
I’m single and have no human children. So I spend a lot of time with my furry children: I have two horses, a dog, and a feathered chicken! I’m also a student, working hard to get into a dental hygiene program.
Registered Dental Assistant
I enjoy getting to know and working with our patients. Each person has their own concerns and goals. Dr. Patel and our team listen to our patients, learning about them, and Dr. Patel finds the treatments right for each person’s needs. I assist patients during visits. I seat and prepare them to see the doctor, explaining what will happen and answering questions. Then I work chairside, making sure the doctor has everything needed while supporting our patient. At the end, I provide home care instructions and check to make sure that our patient is happy with everything that we’ve done.
Outside of work, my favorite way to spend time is bowling.
