Karina, Registered Dental Assistant
Karina has been with us for almost all of her dental career, and she loves being able to provide fun and memorable dental experiences for our kiddos. Her dental training began at Eden Area ROP, and she now has certifications in X-rays, coronal polishing, and dental sealants. Before joining our team, she interned at a small private practice, and orthodontic office, and at the University of the Pacific Clinic.
Karina has five stepsiblings as well as a lot of nieces and nephews, so she spends a lot of time with family outside of the office! She also likes to travel, watch baseball games, and binge watch her favorite TV shows. Karina is fluent in both English and Spanish.
Eddy joined our team over two years ago now, and she has nearly a decade of experience in the dental world. Before she joined us, she attended Southwestern College and earned her certification in dental assisting and X-rays. Plus, she obtained her orthodontic assisting permit! Although her education and training are impressive, what she loves most about her job is building bonds with patients, creating positive memories, and working with a star-studded team.
Eddy’s hometown is Chula Vista! At home, she has a fiancé, two cats, and a puppy. She loves using her free time to watch Netflix, listen to movie podcasts, go off-roading, and ride motorcycles. Here’s something you might not know about her: she knows how to play the drums, the guitar, the bass guitar, and the piano!

Nicole is always happy to empower our patients by educating them on how to protect and improve their oral health. She attended the Dental Assisting Institute and has additional certifications in infection control, coronal polishing, and radiation safety.

Jessica feels fortunate that she gets to work alongside an amazing team that brings joy and confidence to our patients through orthodontic treatment. She was trained through Carrington College of CA and has worked in the front office for over half of her dental career.
Jessica says that her world revolves around her two young sons, so her weekends mostly consist of attending their baseball games or watching sports together. She also likes to hike, find view spots, and try new restaurants/foods.
Annarose, Patient Coordinator
For Annarose, the best part of her job is having a supportive team that strives to provide excellent patient care. Nothing makes her happier than ensuring that the treatment process is as smooth as possible.
Annarose has a longtime boyfriend and a cat named Mew (after the Pokemon), and outside of dentistry, she likes spending time with friends and family, hiking, reading, trying new restaurants, and playing with the latest tech.
Glenda, Registered Dental Assistant/Treatment Coordinator
Glenda says that the only thing she loves more than all of the fun and diverse personalities of our patients is the people she is blessed to work with on a daily basis! She graduated from Diablo Valley College and has been in the orthodontic field for over a decade, and she regularly attends the CDA conference so she can learn about new advancements in the dental field.
Originally from Brentwood, Glenda likes to take trips with her two dogs to San Diego, Oregon, and Rhode Island to visit family. A lover of Broadway musicals, her hobbies include reading, working out, playing video games, and hiking.
Lily, Dental Assistant
Born and raised in San Jose, CA, Lily loves interacting and bonding with the children while helping them improve their oral health. She first started her career by studying at Carrington College of San Leandro to earn her certification as a dental assistant. Over the years, she’s gained experience with conscious sedation in oral surgery/endodontics and spent time working chairside with denture patients. However, her passion is in working with children and special needs.
If you don’t see her at the office, Lily is likely spending her days with her husband, traveling to new places, trying out new foods and restaurants, and visiting the ocean whenever she can. She also loves animals and would be happy to talk about her favorite ones with the kids!
