Andrea (Office Manager)I have been interested in the dental field since I was very young. I had to start orthodontics at a very young age and I had extreme anxiety. The assistant that worked on me just made all of the difference for me. She was so kind and understanding that I told her I wanted to be an assistant like her so that I would be able to help others who were nervous just like me. I went to school and received my RDA license in 2004 and have loved every minute of it. I started in a cosmetic office in the Bay area and slowly moved into management. I absolutely love what I do and I really enjoy all aspects of dentistry.
I lived in the Bay Area up until a year ago when I moved to Carlsbad. That is when I found my new family at San Marcos Family Dental. I can not say enough about these amazing Doctors and the most brilliant staff around. I take a great deal of pride in my work and what I do so I knew it was not going to be easy to find an office that I knew would be a perfect fit. I prayed a great deal and it was so worth it. I love my San Marcos Family dental team and consider them all like family to me. One of many of my major blessings since I have moved here.
In my spare time, I love to explore the area and just soak it all in. It is so very different from the Bay Area and I just love it so far. I love food and trying new things as well. I absolutely love sweets but the real way to my heart is a juicy steak!
For as long as I can remember I have lived and breathed dentistry. I was born on a tiny island in the Philippines and I was raised in San Diego. I started my career in dentistry as an assistant for 8 years and further pursued my education and graduated from San Joaquin Valley College with a degree in Dental Hygiene. I have now been practicing Dental Hygiene for over 7 years.
Being in the dental field has given me opportunities that I would not have otherwise discovered. I truly enjoy my career and I am thankful for the opportunity to serve all those I encounter. Joining San Marcos Family Dental is an exciting opportunity and I look forward to making a positive impact in the San Marcos community. I am a very passionate individual and I do my best in everything that I do and hope to someday become a dental hygiene instructor to help train and guide the next generation of hygienists.
In my spare time I try to maintain a healthy lifestyle by playing basketball and tennis. I am a big nerd at heart, so finding an excuse to be goofy and play games with my friends and family is something I look forward to. I am also a passionate traveler; constantly seeking fun and new adventures across the world.
From day one I knew I wanted to be in the medical or dental field. I was fortunate to start in the profession of dentistry in 1994 and grow as a Dental Assistant through many hours of continuing education. Through my dedication and hard work, I have earned the prestigious title of Registered Dental Assistant in Extended Functions (RDAEF) from UCLA.
I joined San Marcos Family Dental in March of 2016 and love working with Dr. El-Maasri and Dr. Reppas. At San Marcos Family Dental, I contribute to the success & growth of the office by utilizing my skills, abilities & willingness to learn and help my team members as well as help our patients achieve the smile, confidence, and health that they deserve.
I met my husband in high school and we have been together for 27 years. We have 5 children; 3 girls, 2 boys and 2 grandchildren. When I’m not at work I focus my attention to my youngest child. In our spare time we enjoy going to the park, watching movies, and having many fun-filled family gatherings.
