I’ve been in the dental field for almost 40 years. I do what I do because I love helping people.

Outside of the office, I love spending time with my family and being by the ocean.

I have had the pleasure of working with Dr. Alijanian since 2005. I began as a certified surgical assistant and quickly found myself cross trained in both the back and front office. Now as an Implant Treatment Coordinator, I am fulfilling my passion of improving patient’s dental health through personalized care and education. As of 2016, I became a Fellow of the American Association of Dental Office Managers which is the nation’s largest educational and networking association dedicated to serving dental practice management professionals . I feel privileged to be a part of such an amazing office that strives to provide patients with the best surgical care possible and with a doctor who continues to motivate and support our team.

When I am not in the office, you can find me spending time with my husband and our two children taking trips, camping, playing Avengers with my son or helping coach my daughter’s softball team.

I have been working alongside Dr. Alijanian since 2010. I started as a surgical assistant and currently work as a scheduling coordinator. My career in the dental field grew from my fascination with human anatomy. Of the many highlights, I would say I enjoy meeting our patients and giving them a reason to smile, even if it’s at the most unlikely place.

I spend my free time with my family, my dog Tucker, and with my friend going on adventures and trying new things.

I have been in the dental field for a little over 10 years, and I’ve had the pleasure of working with Dr. Alijanian since April as patient care coordinator. It is an honor to be working for an amazing doctor who truly cares to provide the best care to his patients. It’s also a blessing to be a part of a team that strives and allows potential for growth. I enjoy assisting patients because I love being able to help in any way I can.

On my spare time, I practice Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, staying active, and spending quality time with my loved ones.
