Meet the Team


Registered Dental Hygienist

I am truly passionate about dental hygiene. I enjoy helping patients continually improve their oral health while ensuring that they have a comfortable and enjoyable experience from beginning to end. I take pride in being part of an exceptional dental team of professionals devoted to disease prevention and improvement of the public's health (including healthy gums and smile). In my spare time, I enjoy outdoor activities such as swimming, hiking and running.




Insurance Coordinator

I am responsible for coordinating the financial aspect of our patients’ treatment, from billing to insurance and everything else in between. I love to greet our patients with a smile as they arrive, and thank them for trusting our practice with their oral health care after they have been seen. I always try to make each patient feel comfortable and at home while he or she is in our office. My family consists of my loving fiancé, our two children, and our three adorable dogs. In my free time I enjoy being with my family and friends, going to the movies, and shopping. I also love spending time laughing and goofing off with family and friends and watching reality TV shows.




Patient Coordinator

I am one of the friendly smiling faces that greets patients when they enter the office and schedules recall appointments when they leave. I always try to make each patient and his or her family feel comfortable and at home while people are in our office. Whether patients are here for a regular checkup or needs more advanced dental treatment, seeing the smile on their face at the end of the appointment makes all the hard work worth it! I am happily married and love spending time with family and friends. I also enjoy photography, painting, and playing video games.



Schedule Coordinator

My job is to make our patients’ dental appointments fit as easily and conveniently into their busy schedules as possible. I understand that our patients have many obligations, from work to school to family, so I do my best to make their appointments at a time that is best for them. I’m also available to follow up on any questions or concerns they may have with regard to their dental treatment. At the end of the day, I know I’ve succeeded when I see our patients leave the office feeling good about themselves and their smile. During my leisure hours, I am dedicated to spending quality time with my family. I also grow my own vegetables, so I can often be found working in my garden.



Registered Dental Assistant with Extended Functions

I have been an RDA since 2007 and I am a licensed RDAEF2 which allows me to place fillings, cement crowns, take final impressions and many more functions. I have had the pleasure of working side by side with the best doctors and the greatest staff since 2013 here at Wackford Dental. You will always find me with a big smile and greeting our patients. I always look forward to getting to know all of our patients, in fact, it's the most enjoyable part of my job, meeting new people, hearing about their lives and educating them on all the wonderful aspects of dentistry. I am originally from Mexico City, I have 2 children and my favorite thing to do is spend time with them, roller skate, watch movies and dance, I love dancing salsa with my friends.




Registered Dental Assistant/Back Floor Supervisor

I make sure our back office runs smoothly while also assisting Drs. Salem and Elsemary with patient care. I always start my day with a sincere smile, especially for our more anxious patients who may need a little extra care and attention. I ask them about their concerns and comfort them as I patiently listen and assure them that our office can take care of any issue they may have. For everyone in this office, patients always come first! It is so rewarding to build relationships with our patients and treat them like members of our family. When I’m not in the office, I enjoy cooking and baking for my family and spending as much time with them as possible. I also love karaoke!




Registered Dental Assistant

I help to ensure our patients’ comfort, answer any questions a patient might have, and assist our dentists in all aspects of treatment. My great sense of humor can lighten the mood of even the most anxious patient. Seeing them smile at the end of their dental treatment, and knowing I had some part in that is a really wonderful feeling. In the summertime, my free time is spent keeping active outdoors, water skiing, and rock climbing, and the winter months are spent enjoying the snow with my family.

I am from Briggs, a small town here in Northern California. My free time is best spent with my boyfriend Jacob, family, taking long walks on the beach and occasionally working out. I look forward to meeting you and making your visit a great one!



Registered Dental Assistant

I am a Registered Dental Assistant and as an assistant I work chairside with the doctors in making sure everything is ready for them. I like helping patients especially when they come in nervous and leave happy because they loved their experience at the office with the doctors and staff. I love conversing with patients, getting to know about them and their families, know their stories and activities. It feels nice helping the doctors’ change a patients frown upside down and having the patient leave with a smile. Helping people has always been my priority. I care about others, which is why I am in the dental field to help others and help them feel more confident. On my spare time I love to play sports, my main sport is soccer and as a mom to be I am excited and anxious to spend time with my son and teach him how to play soccer.
