JESSIE

TREATMENT COORDINATOR

Hi! My name is Jessie and I have been working in the dental field for over nineteen years. I started working as a dental assistant shortly after receiving my x-ray license in 2003. I enjoyed working as a dental assistant, but after learning about insurance billing, I realized I was a better fit in helping patients understand insurance and financing dental treatment. I enjoy getting to know all our patients and making them feel like they are a part of the Lewelling Dental Care family.

In my spare time I enjoy traveling, reading, watching movies, spending time with my dog, family, and friends, and attending as many BSB concerts and Giants games as possible.

ANNALISA

DENTAL ASSISTANT

Hi, my name is Annalisa. I am a dental assistant. But I also usually assist our new patients, making sure they have a good first experience.

I entered the dental field in 2003 where I worked as an assistant. After I worked part time in another office after school for a few years. While working there, I got my x-ray license and started working more directly with patients. After I graduated high school, I started full time in a dental lab. Soon after, I found Dr. Kazi’s office. Dr. Kazi has given me the opportunity to learn more by sending us to many different seminars and training with new technology. We’re like a family here, and provide great dental care with comfort and care. I now have ten years of experience in the dental field.

When I’m not working, I spend my free time with my friends and family. I like to go to social events such as concerts and enjoy dancing.

MARICELA

DENTAL ASSISTANT

Hello, my name is Maricela. I moved to the East Bay after living in southern California since my childhood. Lewelling Dental Care is my first job in the dental field; I’ve been here for over ten years now as a dental assistant. I was introduced to the field by my sister, an RDA herself. She allowed me to volunteer at one of her offices. From there, I realized it was a type of job I would enjoy. So I enrolled in the same school as her, American Career College in Los Angeles. I graduated in 2009 with my diploma in Dental Assisting and received my x-ray license. I like having the opportunity to help people and being part of the process of creating beautiful smiles. I enjoy working with the GREAT staff here; they make this job fun and unpredictable.

In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my son and husband, as well as cooking, going to rodeos and planning get-togethers with my friends.
