NormaNorma
Office Manager

I’ve been working in the dental field for 17 years and enjoy everything about my career. It is an honor to work with such great doctors who are very caring and honest with their patients. I enjoy getting to know our patients  and hearing about their hobbies.

When it comes to business, I truly excel in helping you with your financial arrangements for your dental work.  My top priority is to do everything I can to make sure you receive the care and treatment you need. I have experience with all types of insurance and have worked with various specialties, including general dentistry, pedodontics, periodontics, orthodontics and oral surgery.

On the personal side, I am a big dog lover. I have a 5 year old pug named Frankie and a 12 year old Yorkie named Stewie that I recently got. During my free time, I enjoy going to Dodger games, the dog park and I also have a foundation that helps feed and provides clothes for the homeless. I enjoy helping the less fortunate in any way I possibly can and receive enormous amount of help and donations from my boyfriend, family, friends and coworkers.

Hello my name is Kristy and I have been in the dental field for over 15 years now. I attended Bryman College in 1999 where I became a dental assistant. After working back office for many years, I decided to give the front office a try. I fell in love with Insurance, patient billing and collections. When I am not at work I enjoy being a mother of 3 young men. Gabriel & Ernie both attend Pasadena City College & Jesse will soon be in Jr. High School. I also enjoy working out and hiking on the weekends.




JasonMichael “JASON”
RDHAP (Registered Dental Hygienist in Alternative Practice)

My name is a Michael Jason but everyone just calls me Jason. I was born and raised in Atwater Village. I have been in the dental field since 1998, starting off as a Registered Dental Assistant. Growing up, I had an experience with a hygienist that could have been better - they neither caring nor gentle. This encouraged me to become the best hygienist possible — one who would be gentle, comforting, caring and informative. In 2005, I met Dr. Yung while attending the dental hygiene program at Pasadena City College. He was one of my clinical instructors, not to mention a great mentor. I graduated top of my class in 2007 and was then offered a position in Dr. Yung’s private office. In 2011, I became a Registered Dental Hygienist in Alternative Practice (RDHAP). This license enables me to deliver dental hygiene care outside the traditional dental office setting such as in residential care facilities, assisted living centers, skilled nursing facilities, schools, and in residences of the homebound. I take pride in my work and enjoy educating patients on proper oral hygiene care. During my time off I enjoy taking rides in my classic Mustang and working on it as well. I have a lovely wife of whom I have been married to for 4 years. 


AlexAlex
Registered Dental Assistant (RDA)

I’ve enjoyed helping people for 17 years as a Registered Dental Assistant. The most rewarding aspect of my job is helping people get over their fear and anxiety of dental treatment. I like to listen to my patients about what makes them uncomfortable and put myself in their position so I can better understand how to help them. With my many years of experience, I like to gain our patients trust and make a personal connection with them.

Family is very important to me so I enjoy spending as much time as I can with them. I’m also an active person that enjoys working out, hiking, biking and photography in my spare time.

I am the mommy to two amazing boys Christopher 10 and Matthew 8. During my time away from work, my husband Chris and I spend most of our time at club basketball tournaments in which our boys have played in and recently won a championship.


BrookeBrooke
Registered Dental Hygienist (RDH)

Hello my name is Brooke and I truly love what I do for a living. I have been a dental hygienist since 2010. My patients are my number one priority.

I believe the experience I provide for my patients should be one that leaves an impression and feeling of great satisfaction. I take pride in making my patients as comfortable as possible. I believe all patients should be well informed of any procedure needed or performed as well as their overall dental health.

I share with my coworkers a commitment to remain on the cutting edge of research and changes in the dental field that benefit my patients.

When not working I enjoy spending time with my husband and 2 young kids. We love to go boating at the lake and camping at the beach. I love anything outdoors! I also have a passion for riding horses which I have been lucky enough to do since childhood.


CeciliaCecilia
Dental Assistant (DA)

My name is Cecilia but everyone calls me Ceci, I first started my career in the dental field as a dental assistant in 1999.  My career as a dental assistant has been great and very rewarding as I build a personal relationship with each and every patient I see. It brings me great joy to see all of the patients happy and with smiles on their faces after their treatment is complete. 

I  have 2 girls that keep me on my toes and are exact opposite but they both love to play baseball and listen to music, while my younger daughter likes to dance to it my older daughter would much rather sing to it. On my free time, my daughters and I volunteer in helping the less fortunate. We help feed the homeless in skidrow and help feed the families at the Ronald Mcdonald house. It makes me very happy that my girls enjoy helping the needy as much as I do.

Since becoming a dental assistant, I have grown not only as an assistant but a person as well and I am thankful to our patients for that.

Registered Dental Hygienist (RDH)

Hello, my name is Jamie. I was born and raised in San Marino, California in a fun, Italian family. I am the youngest of three siblings as well as an aunt to two nieces and one nephew. I love spending time with my family and our Boston terrier, Alexandar. When I'm not working as a dental hygienist, I'm exercising at the gym or watching a good movie.

PierrePierre
Dental Assistant (DA)

Being a dental assistant is such a rewarding job in which I truly love coming into work every day. Seeing the smiles of the patients is such a great feeling and in the future, I would like to see that happen every day when I have my own practice. Currently, I am a student at Pasadena City College studying Biology with the end goal of becoming a dentist.

When I am not working or going to school I am either studying or spending time with family and friends. My hobbies consist of running and playing sports, soccer being my favorite.

 


RosieRosie
Registered Dental Assistant (RDA)

My name is Rosie. I am a Registered Dental Assistant. I have been in the dental field for 17 years. I have a very outgoing personality. I have been told that my smile is very contagious and helps calm our patients when they are nervous.  I enjoy working with patients and making sure they have a comfortable experience while receiving dental care. Watching patients leave with a smile on their face is my favorite part of working here.

On my free time, I keep pretty busy with my 2 year old daughter Laila. She is a lot like me and is always smiling. She recently started taking ballet classes which she seems to really enjoy. She is very smart and is the biggest joy in my life.
