San Diego Dental Office
MEET THE HYGIENISTS
Heather, Dental Hygienist
I have been working in dental since 2008. My goal is to provide thorough, gentle care and to treat patients with kindness and respect for their needs. I enjoy interacting with our patients, and educating them about their oral health in ways that are fun and relatable. Every day I come to the office, I know I’m going to have fun. Since I was raised in the often-chilly region of New England, I really enjoy the Southern California sunshine and being outdoors!
Liz M., Dental Hygienist
I have been working for Dr. Taylor since 2006. I always look forward to meeting new people, and helping to educate my patients on their dental health and staying healthy even outside of our practice. I love making sure that each person I see is comfortable and happy, and leaves our practice with a big smile on their face! In my free time I enjoy traveling, food, and good wine. Im also an animal lover!
Lori, Dental Hygienist
I joined Dr. Taylor’s team in 2006. I understand that many of our patients feel nervous about visiting the dentist, and I strive be as gentle and understanding as possible so that our patients feel comfortable and respected. Meeting new people is the highlight of my day, and I always look forward to building relationships with them. I am married with one daughter and a cat. In my free time I like hiking, cooking, decorating, walking, and dancing. I also like to go on weekend getaways.
MEET THE ASSISTANTS
Dalila, Dental Assistant
Our office is like a big, happy family. We all work well together and we all help each other so that our patients receive the best care possible. I enjoy seeing how grateful our patients are to have healthy smiles, and I’m glad to know that I am able to help them keep their smiles looking good for a lifetime. My favorite part of my job is seeing how happy patients are with their results and how relieved they are that they had a pleasant experience. In my spare time, I like to hang out with my coworkers and grab a bite to eat. Every now and then I like to work out and spend time with my family.
Vanessa, Dental Assistant
I do my very best to make sure my patients are comfortable and enjoy their time spent at our practice. I enjoy being around people, especially when I know I am helping them improve their overall health and wellness for the rest of their lives. I am proud of the way that our team is able to meet the needs of so many unique individuals. We have such a fun team here; we’re always laughing and we all work together to provide the best care possible to our patients. Outside the office, I love outdoor activities with friends and family. I’m a big fan of the Miami heat and a TV junkie!
Jennifer, Dental Assistant
That moment I see a patient smile when looking in the mirror after treatment gives me so much joy. That is the most satisfying part of my job! I get to assist Dr. Taylor and our team in creating healthy, beautiful smiles every day. I care about how each patient feels, and I enjoy being able to answer their questions and help them overcome any anxieties they may have about their treatment. Working with this team has been amazing. Everyone is always willing to take time out and teach. In my free time, I love to be with my wonderful son Christopher, who always knows how to make me smile and laugh.
MEET THE FRONT OFFICE/ADMIN
Angela, Office Manager
I help our patients navigate through the financial aspects of their dental treatment, in addition to overseeing the day-to-day functions of the office. Our dedicated and experienced staff has made a commitment to give our patients the respect and care that they deserve. Our patients are our extended family, and I am grateful for the opportunity to help provide service for all of their dental health needs. After work, I enjoy a good Happy Hour with friends.
Loraine, Treatment Coordinator
Bio coming soon!
The most enjoyable part of my job is interacting with different patients on a daily basis. Each person who walks through our door has a unique story, and I love learning about everybody’s lives. In my position at the front desk, I’m able to create a great first impression of our office by greeting each patient with a smile. It’s a great feeling to know that our team has helped so many of our patients gain confidence in their smiles and overall dental health. I moved to San Diego from Tennessee with my family who I love spending time with after work and on weekends. One my favorite activities to do with my family is fish!
Monique, Office Assistant
I’ve had the pleasure of being part of Dr. Taylor’s team since 2014. During my time here, I have built friendships that have made coming to work every day fun! From helping out with answering telephone calls, checking in patients, making sure the office is stocked with all the essentials to make the day run smooth, and organizing and sending out mail, I love being able to be a helping hand in the office. Outside of work I love to go shopping, work out with friends and take my Morkie (Maltese Yorkie), Beemer to the beach to run around.
Neece, Marketing Coordinator
My duties are to maintain our brand through social media, public relations and advertising. I plan events for the office to participate in such as health expos. I create and facilitate relationships with businesses in the community as well as oversee promotions for the office and our referral program. My favorite part of my job is working with the amazing staff. Everyone has their own unique personality that meshes to make a fun working environment. When I’m not working, I like to work out, try different vegan restaurants, and be surrounded by family and friends.
