“I consider myself very lucky to be practicing orthodontics in Sonoma county. As an orthodontist, I am able to treat such a wide range of patients. It is fascinating watching our younger patients grow up during the course of their treatment, and our adult patients always add excitement to each day. Our team always tries to take the extra step necessary to provide top-notch care, and I truly feel that we are all rewarded every day, when we’re creating beautiful smiles!” Dr. D

Hi everyone! I am the lead RDA and clinical coordinator for our office. I manage the clinic and help with ordering and OSHA requirements. It is fun to see people in our community come into the office, as I was raised right here in Healdsburg, so I am seeing a lot of familiar faces. The greatest reward of my job is seeing the transformation in everyone’s teeth and watching our patients fall in love with their smiles. I am grateful to be working in this beautiful office and working with our amazing team! I can’t wait to see you in the office!

When I am not living in scrubs, my days are spent raising my beautiful family and attending their soccer games.

I enjoy connecting with our patients, scheduling their appointments and assisting them with any questions they may have.

Kayla, Registered Dental Assistant (RDA)

Hi there! My name is Kayla and my role is as a registered dental assistant (RDA) for our clinic. I enjoy my work as I get to witness the transformation of our patients from the very beginning, when they’re excited and nervous to get braces or Invisalign® started, to their difficult decision of color choices, and then finally to the day they get to show off their beautiful new smile!

Something interesting about me is that I also have a huge passion for plants and animals, especially tarantulas! On my days off, I love to camp and hike with friends and family.

My main focus is to clean and sterilize instruments used in our clinic. I am enjoying getting to know all of our wonderful patients and their families. My favorite thing about working here is the way everyone works as a team. Everyone is so positive and helpful!

In my time off, I enjoy spending time outdoors with my family and my new baby. I also have fun cooking and occasionally baking up a storm!
