We recognize that all 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 enjoy chatting with our patients and learning about their lives. When they share stories about their interests or talk about their day, it builds a bond and we often become friends. I love that I’m able to help my friends improve their dental health and smiles.
I assist our patients throughout their visits. After bringing them into the treatment area, I make sure they’re comfortable in the chair and prepare them for Dr. Wallace. Then I sit chairside while the doctor cares for them, and tell them what’s going on and making sure they’re relaxed. At the end of their visit, I provide any post-op care instructions and answer questions. I’m here to help, whatever a patient needs!
Dental Assistant/ Front Office Reception
I received my training as a dental assistant at Oxnard College in 2002, and joined Dr. Wallace’s team in 2008. At East Ventura Family Dentistry, I can be found working at the side of our dentists assisting with procedures or at the front office, where I tend to the phones and answer patient questions about treatment plans.
I believe that laughter is the best medicine, so patients usually see me with a big smile and lighthearted attitude. I love meeting new people and helping them feel at ease while they heal.
I began my career in dentistry in 1993, first as a dental assistant and then as a hygienist after graduating from West LA College with my degree. I became a member of the East Ventura Family Dentistry team in 2007.
As a dental hygienist, I work together with Dr. Wallace and Dr. Neft to evaluate and meet the oral needs of our patients. From a clinical standpoint, I provide oral health assessments, patient history reviews, gentle cleanings and periodontal therapy, and education about the best oral hygiene strategies to maintain oral health. While all of this is obviously vital to our patients’ health, I believe the personal relationships I develop with each patient also plays a large part in his or her overall health and wellness. I truly enjoy meeting new people and working with them to ensure a lifetime of beautiful and healthy smiles.
