Barbara is another veteran of our practice. She has worked in our office since 1979, four years after her dental career began. There are two things she likes best about her job: seeing old attitudes change in the field of dental health care, and watching our patients return with a healthier mouth than they previously had.
Barbara received her Bachelor of Science degree in Dental Hygiene from UCSF. She is a member of the Dental Hygiene Board of Examiners and is certified in a number of areas, including Level I Laser, administration of local anesthesia, and soft tissue curettage. She has completed numerous continuing education courses, including increasing patient engagement, practice management and human relations, HIPAA, OSHA, the California Dental Practice Act, current infection prevention protocols, orthodontics, and CPR/first aid. In her spare time, Barbara enjoys activities with her grandchildren, archery, hiking, backpacking, and scouting.
