I joined the San Marcos Dental team in February of 2021 as the Office Manager. I have over 15 years of experience in the dental field. I started as a front office receptionist, and developed more skills as a Treatment Coordinator, and my passion for helping patients led me to become a Manger for the last 10 years. I have worked for both corporate and private offices, which helped me learn and expand my knowledge of all aspects of dentistry.
I love working for private the most due to the fact that I can focus more on the patients and provide excellent service. I achieve this by building relationships with our patients and making sure they have a wonderful experience. After all they are like family.
On my personal time I love going on adventures with my husband of almost 30 years. We’ve been together since High School. I have two children and a recent grandchild, with whom I enjoy spending as much time with as possible. I enjoy traveling, going to football games and occasionally going off the beaten path in our Jeep to explore the wild.
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.
