I grew up in a beautiful coastal city near the Mediterranean Sea in North Africa called Annaba. I studied biology in my country and speak three languages: Amazigh, Arabic, and French. English is my fourth adopted language. I’m a proud mother of two sweet kids, a girl and boy. I love spending time with my sister and enjoy reading, arts and crafts, music, and gardening. I like to taste cuisines from all over the world, but my favorites are: Algerian, Moroccan, and Tunisian foods. I feel very fortunate to be a part of the Alameda Pediatric Dentistry family!

I was born and raised in the Bay Area, Oakland to be exact. I come from a large Hispanic family of 3 boys and 4 girls. My parents are first-generation immigrants from Mexico. I’ve been married for 28 years and have four children, two girls and two boys, ages 12, 14, 25 & 28. We are very involved with our kids’ activities, especially in their sports. They participate in baseball, swimming, and our favorite is soccer. We have coached in competitive soccer for many years and like to go to tournaments in different parts of the state and out of state when possible. Spending time with my family is very important. We have enjoyed traveling to different parts of the U.S., Canada and Mexico, but my dream is to travel to Europe someday. I think I’m overdue for that trip!

I was born and raised in Ethiopia, in a place known as “13 months of sunshine”. Coming here to the Bay area the weather reminds me of home. I love it! I spend most of my time working but on weekends and after work I love to work out and enjoy walking by the beach. I can’t live without my spiritual needs as one of Jehovah’'s witnesses. As an Ethiopian, I love spicy foods. But don’t get me wrong, I love burgers and pizza too!

I always wanted to be a kindergarten teacher. Now, working as a registered dental assistant with Alameda Pediatric Dentistry has given me the opportunity to work with two things I love, helping people and working with children. I love to be part of a team that puts smiles on the little one's faces; it brings out my inner child. Watching Disney movies with my son and husband brings me great joy. I love to dance, enjoy nature, and spend time with my loved ones.

I grew up in the Philippines and came here to the United States when I was 16 years old. I like to travel to different places and experience their culture and food. In my free time I love baking, reading books, or playing badminton. I have joined many different organizations in the Philippines and in the U.S. and what really makes me happy is when I’m helping the community and people say thank you and really appreciate it.

I was raised in a military family and settled in the Bay Area, where I grew up. I enjoy the beautiful beaches along the coast and love to take my two rescue dogs on hikes and new adventures! What brings me joy is supporting the local animal shelters and reading about adoption stories. I like to learn that they are placed in a “fur-ever” home! In addition, I am happy to see our patients go home with a healthy smile!

I enjoy spending quality time with family and friends. I absolutely love to watch my son and daughter play sports; to see them happy means the world to me and puts the biggest smile on my face. Working with children is my passion, and seeing their little faces with their big smiles always brightens up my day.

I am the oldest of 3 boys and grew up in the East Bay, mainly in Union City, CA. My hobbies include playing sports, especially baseball. During the baseball season, we enjoy going out to games and tailgating (Go A’S!). When not working, I like to eat out and try new foods or simply just stay home and have gatherings with family and friends. What brings a smile to my face is making a difference in not only kids but adults lives also.

The peninsula, where I grew up, is very special to me, where I was exposed to many cultures and lifestyles. Because of my early experiences, I feel I have great compassion and appreciation for everyone. I have a small family—my husband, 4-year-old, and a great dog, but am lucky enough to have inherited a large wonderful family through my husband. Seeing my son smile and hearing his laugh makes my heart smile. Exposing him to new things and seeing his reaction is the best feeling on earth.

I grew up in a small town just outside of Yosemite National Park. I am a proud military wife, and am happy to have moved to Alameda, where my husband grew up. My happiest times are spent outdoors and exploring new things.

I was born and raised in “Algeria”, a Mediterranean jewel, and then moved to California in 1999. I have three children who are the center of my world, but not to forget my loving family, especially my sister who shows me love every day! I enjoy healthy food, try to stay away from sugar and my challenge, of course, is to have a sugar free household. I love hiking, biking with my children, and am learning stand-up paddle boarding! My dream is to continue my Anthropology studies in hopes of helping humanity, most specifically children; with a dream of a world where no child is left behind…

I was born in Oakland and raised up north in Rohnert Park, CA. When I was younger, my school breaks were spent here on the island with family. When moving back here in 2000, it felt as if I never left. I am the oldest of 6 children and a proud mother of an 18-year-old. My son is attending Santa Rosa JC, which is why I really cherish play dates with my 7-year-old sister. I’ve been in the dental field for over 20 years and started working in this office in 2001. I enjoy creating fun ways to educate my patients and their parents. Being a Big Kid At Heart makes working here that much more enjoyable.

My favorite thing to eat is sushi.

I was born in New York and raised in the Bay Area. I have over 15 years experience in the orthodontic field and love making people smile either with braces or with my silly sense of humor. The greatest reward of being in the dental industry is building relationships with my patients. During my spare time, I enjoy baking or cooking for my family and friends, relaxing with my doggies, and exercising.
