Hello, my name is Alma. 

 I was born and raised in Ventura. I’ve always had an interest in biological science, specifically in dentistry. On my time off I enjoy spending time with friends and family, hiking and long walks on the beach.



Hi my name is Denise.  I'm a native of Santa Barbara and have been a dental assistant for 8 years.  I especially enjoy learning and growing in the field of dentistry.  My favorite part of being a dental assistant is patient education. It is rewarding to teach patients about their dental health and see them grow in knowledge and understanding.  I spend my free time in the salon as a licensed cosmetologist as well as spending time with my family.  I look forward to meeting you.
