Steffenie – Office Manager
After an internship here in 2008, I started out as a dental assistant, working chairside with Dr. McCormick. In 2011 I was able to take on the role of Office Manager, and though it took some getting used to, I feel like this is right where I belong! I absolutely love being able to get to know our patients from a different perspective than from the dental chair. In my free time I am still kept very busy by my three sweet boys: Cameron, Josh, and AJ. They are all active with sports, so we spend a lot of time watching games and practices! When we aren't juggling school and sports, our family enjoys movie nights, Taco Tuesdays, bike rides, and just hanging around the house doing some much-needed relaxing. If there's any time left over I try to get some exercising in, but it's usually with a lot of reluctance!
Chelsie – Scheduling Coordinator
I'm a small town girl, born and raised in the Bay Area. I love new experiences of all kinds, but unfortunately don't travel much as I get homesick really easily. If you have more than a two-minute conversation with me, you'll figure out right away that I love my parents more than anything. I'm new to the dental field, only having graduated the dental assisting program from Mt. Diablo in 2015, but so far I'm loving every minute of it. I'm local – lucky me, my commute to work is only five minutes – and I absolutely love my place in this office. Every day is better than the last, both here at the office and in my everyday life. I believe in simple pleasures and that the best things in life are free. I feel so grateful for the amazing people I have in my life, both personal and professional. If there is anything else you would like to know all you have to do is ask; I'm an open book!
I was born and raised in the Midwest. In 2000, my husband and I moved to California. I decided to return to school and pursue a career in dental hygiene. In 2002 I received my AA degree and was accepted into the dental hygiene program at Diablo Valley College. In 2004 I graduated from that program and began working. In 2005 I was lucky enough to come across this great office and have been working here ever since! In my free time, I love going to the gym to stay healthy and in shape. Also on free weekend time, my husband and I like to catch a dinner and a movie, work on a project, or simply relax at home.
I graduated from the Diablo Valley College dental hygiene program with honors in 2004. Being vice president of my class was enjoyable, and I was honored to get the outstanding student award. I have also been a member of the American Dental Hygiene Association this entire time. I feel very lucky to be working with a wonderful team, and it is hard to believe I have been with the office for 11 years now. Outside of work, I am enjoying motherhood. My daughter Irissa is the biggest joy in my life! We are very active and enjoy our annual camping/boating trips, snowboarding, and yoga classes. We love walking our two toy poodles, Cotton and Claire.
I have nearly 18 years experience in the dental field and have been working in this practice since 2005. Prior to graduating in 2005 from Diablo Valley College with an Associate of Science Degree in Dental Hygiene, I worked as a Certified Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Assistant for seven years. I am a member of the American Dental Hygiene Association and the California Dental Hygiene Association. I am married to my high school sweetheart and we have two children, Austin and Paige. When not at work I can be found volunteering at my kids' school, bookkeeping for my husband's business, and running kids to and from baseball, basketball, swim team, soccer, and dance. In my spare time my family and I enjoy camping and boating. I enjoy getting to know our patients and take pride in helping them improve their oral health while making them feel welcome and comfortable in our practice.
Cathy, Dental Assistant
I was born and raised in the Bay Area and have lived here my whole life. I graduated from Diablo Valley College with an Associate of Science degree in Dental Assisting. I really enjoy helping people. Smiling exudes confidence and if people are not happy with their teeth, I love that we can do something to help. It is a true blessing being a part of this team, and I am very lucky to have met everyone here. When not at work, I like trying new restaurants and traveling (especially to Disneyland). But what I enjoy most is staying at home and binge-watching TV shows and movies. If you enjoy The Walking Dead, you are definitely in the right office!
