I have been with Heritage Family Dental for 18 years as part of the front office team. I currently reside in Irvine, a short commute, and enjoy spending time with my 3 beautiful nieces, watching football… Go Cowboys!!!, snowboarding and all water sports. I have built a wonderful rapport with so many of our patients and I look forward to seeing them on their dental visits.
RDA & Front Office
I’m a registered dental assistant and have been part of this team for almost 20 years and, in fact, one of the first hired dental assistants when Dr. Clibon opened this practice. I currently work at the front desk and have been doing this for about 8 years. I still help the doctors as an assistant at times when they need help. Our patients are like family to me. I have a great relationship with our patients and that’s what makes Heritage Family Dental so special.
I have been a dental hygienist since 2002 and have had the pleasure of being part of Heritage family dental team since 2003. I love being a dental hygienist. My favorite part of my job is building rapport with my patients. I believe dentistry involves a lot of psychology and I am very sensitive to the fact that many people have had previously traumatizing dental experiences. I strive to alleviate their anxiety and create a lasting connection with my patients. Patient education is another important aspect of my job. I like to explain things in a way that is relatable to my patients. I’m a member of the California Dental Hygienist Association (CDHA) and I attend meetings for the Dental Hygiene Study Club of OC, quarterly. Continuing education is important to me so I can provide my patients with the most current research.
In my free time I like to camp, hike,and attend music festivals with my boyfriend Josh and my friends. I really love to travel. My goal is to get as many stamps on my passport as possible. I am an animal lover. I have a pug named Rudy.
I grew up in Oklahoma and I’m an OU graduate. My goal is to provide the importance of dental hygiene and their systemic health leading to a beautiful set of teeth for life. In my 30 years of dental hygiene (I started when I was 4), I developed a close bond with my amazing patients and the incredible office staff which over the years have helped form the person that I have become. Besides work, my hobbies are Vegas and food!
I’ve been a dental assistant since 2012. I love what I do. I am happy to have the opportunity to help patients address their needs. I’m glad to be part of an office where we offer the latest technology for the comfort of our patients, and have the opportunity to utilize my bilingual skills.
I’m married to my husband, Edgar, and we have two wonderful kids. My family and I enjoy movies, soccer, dancing and camping. We have lots of fun adventures together!
