Meet The Smile Team

Our exceptional, friendly staff is our greatest asset. Our dental assistants and hygienists are licensed professionals who pride themselves on staying on the cutting edge of dentistry and patient communication. They are excited about what they are doing, have high standards of quality and integrity, and are motivated to achieve the best results for our family of patients.

Our dedicated and motivated staff has one primary goal—your utmost comfort! We feel it’s important that you understand the treatment that you’ll be receiving so that you can relax during the procedure. Our staff is eager to answer any questions regarding your dental care. Please feel free to share with us your needs and concerns.


Treatment Coordinator/Front Office Scheduler

Julie is  typically the first person you meet at our office! If it isn't her cheery greeting over the phone you are hearing then its the warm welcoming smile that you see when you arrive at our office! Julie brings to us many years of experience with front office duties including scheduling and insurance expertise. Our smile team feels everyone should be able to get the smile they desire, so Julie continually seeks out payment options that will eliminate financial obstacles for our patients. Julie loves to travel with her husband with her favorite travel destination being anywhere warm and near the water! Julies greatest loves are her children and grandchildren! 



Priscilla is our RDA and works chairside with Dr. Demichelis. Priscilla is quiet and has a very calming personality that quickly puts patients at ease. While the other team members tend to prefer dogs, Priscilla is our office kitten lover. But don't let Priscilla's quiet demeanor and calming influence fool you - outside the office she is a third degree blackbelt! When she isn't working, Priscilla loves working on home improvement projects and cherishes her time with her son. 



Tanya earned high marks in her Dental Hygiene education and continues to further her dental knowledge thru attendance at continuing education courses. 

In her spare time, Tanya enjoys spending time with her family and working on home improvement projects! If you notice any paint stains on her hands you know she has been at it again!


Front Office Assistant

Irma has been associated with our office for years! She is  retired from 50 years of teaching and only recently decided to stop subbing.  Since she is no loner in the classroom Irma likes to spend time at our office greeting and chatting with patients, filing, answering the phones and helping out where needed. She always brings a smile to patients and staff with her humor but watch out she loves to tease! She is a an avid sports fan especially Basketball where she can tell you everything you wanted to know and more about her favorite teams the Golden State Warriors and the Pacific Tigers!!!( In case you didn't guess Irma isn't just a volunteer - she is Doctor's mom! Everyone enjoys her so much around the office that we just put her to work! ) Irma was on a short furlough while awaiting her COVID vaccine but now that she is fully vaccinated she is excited to be back at the office! 


Kathy is now retired but because she was such an important member of our Dental Family for so long we just can't bring ourselves to remove her name from our website. Kathy had been in the Dental field over 30 years. Kathy started as a chairside assistant and eventually ended up working in the front office. Kathy has an extensive knowledge of dental insurance and was always happy to answer any of your insurance or billing questions. 

Kathy grew up in  Turlock  and currently lives in the Patterson area where her and her family farm. Kathy has two wonderful children both who are married and living in the area but Kathy's biggest pride is her four grandchildren!
