Carissa, Front Desk Receptionist

Carissa graduated from the dental assisting program at Western Career College and has been in the dental field since 2006.  Having started out as dental assistant, she worked her way to the front office shortly after.  Her top priorities are to provide a welcoming and relaxed reception for patients.  Patients have appreciated Carissa’s gentle demeanor and her thorough and efficient manner at the front desk. In her spare time, she enjoys horseback riding, hiking, and boating with her three children. We are thankful to have such a friendly team member to welcome all of our patients here.

April, Dental Hygienist
April, Registered Dental Hygienist

April received her Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene from University of the Pacific in 2009 and since then has worked all over the Bay Area, Sacramento, Yolo and Solano counties. She is frequently recommended for her gentle touch, down to earth attitude and experience helping patients who struggle with dental anxiety. Her favorite part of working in dentistry is getting to know her patients and hearing fun updates about them each visit. April’s goal with every patient is to help them feel comfortable and empowered when making decisions about their oral health.

When she’s not working or chasing after her toddler daughter, she loves writing fiction, reading and exploring state parks. We are delighted to have a warm, caring hygienist to provide for the needs of our patients.
