Eduardo

Registered Dental Hygienist


Education:  Redwood High School in Visalia, CA, College of the Sequoias, San Joaquin Valley College School of Dental Hygiene.

Dental Experience: 4 years

In his own words:  I became a dental hygienist to help and make a difference in people’s lives.  As a hygienist I have the opportunity to educate and provide my patients with the tools necessary to take their hygiene to the next level. I truly enjoy being able to present advances in dentistry and services to our patients.  Keeping up with new technology and theory is an expectation I set for myself to better serve our patients. I am very proud to be a part of A Beautiful Smile, a true team, where each member has a unique and specific role in our office. Outside of A Beautiful Smile, my hobbies include staying active, playing the guitar, and sports with friends.


Gilbert

Office Manager


Education:  C. E. King High School in Houston, TX, U.S. Army Certified Dental Assistant, Fresno State University B.S Biology, DeVry University-B.S. Technical Management, DeVry University-Masters of Business Management

Dental Experience: 26 years

In his own words: I chose the dental field because of my mother.  I did not realize until I was older why my mother emphasized going to the dentist every six months.  In time, I came to find out that she was dealing with periodontal disease.  I watched my mother go from having a beautiful smile, to watching her cover her laugh with her hand.  I made a promise to myself that I would never let that happen to others as long as I could help it.  Being a part of A Beautiful Smile, I truly enjoy when a patient walks out of the treatment area after their final procedure and looks at their new smile for the first time.  Watching someone’s self-esteem grow in an instant is part of the benefit of working in dentistry. When I’m not helping patient’s regain their confidence, I enjoy fishing, camping, traveling, playing softball, and spending time with family and friends.

Melissa

Receptionist/Dental Assistant


Education:  Washington Union High School in Fresno, CA, Associate’s Degree in General Education, Dental Assisting Certification.

Dental Experience:  11 years

In her own words:  I chose the dental field because I have always felt the need to help people make a change for the better.  Dentistry has provided the opportunity for me to assist in making a difference in our patients’ lives. By working at A Beautiful Smile, I am able to develop great relationships with each of our patients.  At the end of the day, I can honestly say that, when our patients leave with a beautiful smile, I will always be a part of providing care that will follow them for the rest of their lives. Some of my favorite activities include spending quality time with family and friends, shopping, and exploring the great outdoors.

Maria

Dental Assistant


Education:  Sunnyside High School in Fresno, CA, U.E.I. College of Dental Assisting

Dental Experience: 1 year

In her own words:  I picked the dental field because I was inspired by a few friends that chose this path.  I remember reading their textbooks and found I was intrigued by dentistry.  My father once told me, there will come a day that you will choose a career but eventually a career will choose you.  Being a team member at A Beautiful Smile has compounded what I have learned during my time at U.E.I College of Dental Assisting and helped me explore my passion for helping others.  When I’m not helping patients achieve great smiles, you can find me camping, shopping, swimming, or reading.
