Rebecca

REBECCA WALLINGFORD

Registered Dental Hygienist

I am Santa Teresa Dental’s very first dental hygienist since September 2011. I have been a dental hygienist for over 20 years. Additionally, I have a Bachelor degree in Environmental Studies from San Jose State University and an Associate’s degree in Laser Technology. My patients are my priority. I am here to help my patients achieve optimal oral health, but I’m also here to listen, to help them relax and help them to enjoy their dental visit.

TERRI

TERRI LAWRENCE

Registered Dental Hygienist

I have been a dental hygienist for over 24 years. I am also a certified Orofacial Myofunctional Therapist. I went through an additional 3 year training program from the University of Pacific to obtain my Registered Dental Hygienist Alternative Practice license, which allows me to practice without a dentist supervision. I am here on Mondays and Fridays. I hope to see you soon!

Heather

HEATHER LAWLER

Registered Dental Hygienist

I join Santa Teresa Dental in April 2018 due to the expanding growth of the office. I am here on Fridays and I am excited to meet you in the very near future. I have been a dental hygienist for 13 years. Before that, I was a linguistic & anthropologist with degrees from University of California at Berkeley and University of Nevada at Las Vegas.

NEYDA

Care Consultant

The best part of my job is the patients! I enjoy working with people and strive to make patients feel welcome. Part of my job involves preparing and going over financial plans with you to make sure you are comfortable with the proposed treatment plan. I promise to listen to your needs and try my best to accommodate with them.

Vanessa

VANESSA

Patient Coordinator

I have been with Santa Teresa Dental since May 2011. I will be the one welcoming you, our patient, into our work family. Making sure that you have a most pleasant experience is very important to me. I believe that our patients are not just another record in the computer; they are individuals with families, jobs, and interests.

Jhona

JHONA

Registered Dental Assistant

I am not only a registered dental assistant; I also hold a dentist license in the Philippines. I truly enjoy working with patients. I find it rewarding - motivating patients to take care of their dental needs and addressing their concerns. Every day, I ensure that every detail of the patient experience presents our total commitment to quality of care.

Blanca

BLANCA

Dental Assistant

I am the newest member of the team since January 2018. I graduated from Christopher High School in 2013. I then continued my dental assisting study at the Santa Clara County Regional Occupational Program right here in my hometown of Gilroy. I feel privileged working here. My doctors are kind and skilled; my team members are professional and helpful.
