Registered Dental Hygienist
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!
Registered Dental Hygienist
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 friend and family is something I look forward to. I am also a passionate traveler; constantly seeking fun and new adventures across the world.
Front Office Coordinator and Registered Dental Assistant
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 earned 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, finding financial options they can afford, and seeing all our patients leave happy and smiling.
In my free time I stay very busy taking adventures with my 4 year old daughter and 3 year old son. I also enjoy walks at our amazing San Diego beaches, camping, shopping, watching movies, and drinking some great coffee. They call me the Starbucks Queen!
I was born on the beautiful island of Puerto Rico and raised in sunny South Florida. About four years ago I decided to move to California and had a wonderful opportunity to start working in the dental field. Since then I have been able to help patients find ways to afford the best care they need and have met some great people along the way.
I am a mommy to the sweetest seven year old boy named GIno. In our free time we enjoy going to eat sushi and playing with our animals at home!
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.
Registered Dental Assistant
I began my career in the dental field when I started attending courses at Palomar Community College. It was there that I became really intrigued by the profession and continued into the Registered Dental Assisting Program. In order to graduate, I needed to meet a certain amount of internship hours. I was placed at San Marcos Family Dental for my internship, and I never left! This office is where I was able to put into practice everything I was learning and grow my real passion for the field. Dr. El-Maasri has always been there to give me the push I need to do my job at my best and with confidence. Dr. Reppas and Sofia were and are the best teachers and mentors to me! For that, I have a lot of appreciation. So, being able to work here really holds a special place in my heart.
I was born and raised in the beautiful city of Oceanside, California. In my free time I enjoy walking the beach with my two boxers, Brutus and Bella
I look forward to growing in my career here and continuing to be part of a team that truly loves to help people care for their smiles!
