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.

ANNALISA ORTIZ

Registered Dental Hygienist

I am excited to call Santa Teresa Dental my work family because we have been voted ‘Best Dentist of Morgan Hill’ by various online and local news outlets for various years. I believe we are the best because we strive every day to provide the best possible patient experience. I myself encourage patients to ask questions so I can personalize your hygiene recommendation. I am here on Mondays and Fridays. My credential includes an Associate of Science degree in Dental Hygiene from Cabrillo College.  I am licensed to administer local anesthesia, nitrous oxide, and the most cutting edge laser therapy. When I am not at work, I enjoy long hikes.

SUSAN BALDWIN

Registered Dental Hygienist

I joined Santa Teresa Dental in April 2019 due to the expanding patient recare department. I am here on Fridays. I have been in the dental field for over 30 years and a dental hygienist for the last 18 years.  I am especially proud of my Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP) certification. I also work in a local periodontist office so I am confident in treating advanced gum disease patients. Patient comfort is my priority and I look forward to meeting you.

Hi, my name is Susan and I have been a Registered Dental Hygienist for 12 years. My experience includes working in general dentist offices like Santa Teresa Dental and in periodontal specialist offices. I am also laser certified. The favorite part of my job is forming a long-lasting relationship with my patients. It is rewarding to me when patients understand that oral health is closely tight to whole body health. I am here every other Fridays and I look forward to meeting you.

I am not only a registered dental assistant; I also hold a dentist license in the Philippines. I truly enjoy working with patients.

Every day, I ensure that every detail of the patient experience presents our total commitment to quality of care.
