I was born in San Francisco and grew up in Mill Valley. I attended Tamalpais High School, UC Davis and graduated from University of the Pacific Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry in 1986.
My favorite pastime is running although I enjoy anything outdoors. I am happiest when I am surrounded by dirt, trees, water, or mountains. I have been an active member of the Dolphin South End Runners club since 1989. Many of us in the office run with DSE Runners on Sundays and we’d love for you to join us.
It is a joy to go to work daily and I feel blessed to be surrounded by such talented and responsible people for so many years. We work hard to perfect our craft and bring you the best dentistry available. Diane, my wife, works full time as one of the hygienists, and my mom comes in three times a week to help out. We are an office of close friends and family committed to helping you achieve and maintain your dental health.
Diane was born second in line to Herb and Jean at the Kaiser on Geary Blvd. She grew up in Mill Valley and San Rafael. Having lived in one county all her life, Diane wanted to move away for college. She attended and graduated from her dad’s alma mater, the University of Hawaii, with a Bachelor of Science degree in 1986. After several years of island life, a bit of rock fever hit and the Bay Area called her back. She and Ken met at a friends’ party. They married in 1997.
Diane joined the San Francisco Dental Hygiene Society in the early 1990’s and has served as SFDH President and Membership chair. Diane has been working as a dental hygienist since 1986, since 1994 in our practice! It’s a pleasure for her to get to know the patients and especially to watch the young patients grow up.
Diane enjoys photography, Iyengar Yoga, and playing Hawaiian songs on her ukulele.
Andrea was born and raised in San Francisco. She left to earn a degree in biochemistry at UC Davis and later her Bachelor of Science Degree in Dental Hygiene from Foothill College. She joined our team in 2015 as a dental hygienist.
When she’s not working in the dental office, Andrea can be found in the kitchen cooking. Her specialty is developing and photographing recipes for her blog, Cooking With A Wallflower. Her favorite place in San Francisco is the Ferry Building Farmer’s Market on Saturday mornings where she can be found browsing and looking for inspiration.
Born and raised in Sao Paulo, Brazil, Mari graduated from Universidade de Campinas (Unicamp) Dental School in 1994. She practiced general dentistry in Brazil from 1994 to 2004, then moved to the United States. She has worked in our office since 2005 as a chairside assistant, extended function dental assistant, and dental laboratory technician.
In 2010 Mari completed her Registered Dental Assistant Extended Function 2 licensing, making her one of the few “EF2” assistants practicing in San Francisco. The additional licensing allows Mari to complete most of the procedures that we perform.
Mari enjoys music, yoga, and running. She regularly runs marathons and other races with her husband Seth.
Patricia started working with us in 2003 fresh out of dental assisting school. She earned an additional Registered Assistant license in 2005. Patricia wears many hats in our office. In addition to her assisting duties, she fills in at the front desk, designs CAD/CAM crowns, and repairs equipment.
Originally from Peru, Patricia has the ability to make a fine ceviche and lomo saltado for her family. On her days off she enjoys running and adventuring, but mostly she enjoys spending time with her young son Valentino “the cutest baby in the world!”
Patty started working with us in the Summer of 2018, then took time off during the pandemic to start a family. She’s immersed herself in every aspect of the dental field throughout the last 15 years, having worked as an officer manager, dental assistant, scheduling coordinator, insurance coordinator, and a best friend to you as you navigate your dental experience.
Patty grew up in Washington state, but now calls the Bay Area her home. She’s happily married to her husband Jason and is enjoying her new role as a mother of her two sons born in 2021 and 2023. The family dog Thanos completes the picture and is also happy.
Raised in Las Vegas NV, Melissa moved to San Francisco nearly 15 years ago. Melissa joined our team in October of 2021 and brings to our office a strong background in customer service. Transitioning from the wine industry where she was a Wind Educator for multiple wineries to becoming our new Front Desk Coordinator.
When not in our office, Melissa is usually enjoying what the city has to offer. You can often catch her learning new baking recipes, reading a book, or at a local park walking her dog Camilla with her partner Will.
