Registered Dental Assistant in Extended Functions
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 27yrs. 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.
Front Office Coordinator
I started my amazing career in the dental profession in 2010 through my schooling at Kaplan College where I earned my Certificate in Dental Assisting. I have since worked at a handful of offices as a Back office and Front office assisting and through the many roles that I have played, I had the opportunity to fall in love with insurance billing and the front office!
I enjoy helping patients understand their Dental Benefits! Insurance is complicated; knowing the do’s and don’ts helps me assist the patients with utilizing ALL that their insurance offers. I also enjoy getting to know all of our patients on a personal level as the office should be a comfortable place to open up and let everyone know that we are still human and need relationships to better ourselves and help our office grow.
I joined San Marcos Family Dental in 2016 and I have a blast working with our team! Dr. El-Maasri is very funny and very easy to talk to; she makes me laugh and inspires to be by my very best every day. Dr. Reppas is very kind, understanding, and caring. They both have a genuine love for what they do and it is infectious. Sofia is very wise, funny, very talented, and she is amazing at her job which is why patients love her as well.
I am a resident of Oceanside and the majority of my time is spent with my amazing husbands and our 3 fur babies! During my free time I love watching scary movies, reading, swimming, seeing my nieces along with my sister, visiting my best friend and hanging out with my amazing neighbors that live in my condo community.
I also want to let everyone know, that the best part of my job is that I am the BEST PANDORA DJ EVER, and I can put on all of your favorite hits during your dental visit. Remember, when you are at San Marcos Family Dental it is ALL ABOUT YOU!!!!
I was born and raised in the beautiful state of Wyoming. I served in the U.S. Navy for 5 years and completed a Western Pacific deployment on board the aircraft carrier, USS Nimitz. It was on the ship that my dental career began as a dental assistant. After working as a dental assistant for more than 3 years, I decided to further my career. I then received my Associate of Science in Dental Hygiene degree from Concorde Career College in San Diego.
I have always had the desire to help others and love the fact that I have been able to turn it into a career. I make sure to offer up-to-date knowledge about oral health and patient education and I am an advocate for our patients’ overall health.
In my free time, I enjoy exercising with my Chocolate Labrador, Kali, in addition to traveling to different countries and experiencing different cultures.
I am so happy to have joined the San Marcos Family Dental team and look forward to getting to know each and every one of my patients for many years to come!
I was born and raised in sunny San Diego and I love everything about this wonderful city. I started my career in the dental field when I attended UEI college and started working towards my dental assisting certificate. Now that I have achieved my first goal of becoming a Dental Assistant, I am looking forward to working even harder to earn my Registered Dental Assisting degree.
Working at San Marcos Family Dental has been an amazing experience. My favorite thing about being part of this great team is helping people transform their oral health and seeing all of our patients leave happy and smiling.
In my free time I stay very busy raising my 3 year old daughter and 2 year old son. I also enjoy walks at our amazing San Diego beaches, shopping, watching movies, and drinking some great coffee.
