Meet The Staff
Liz is our veteran & friendly office manager. She grew up in sunny California and lived in San Jose for most of her life. Liz started her journey in the dental field as a dental assistant over 16 years ago. She graduated from CCOC as a dental assistant in 2005. Being bilingual, she eventually transitioned to working front office. But you’ll still catch her helping out in the back sometimes…old habits are hard to break! While transitioning to working front office, she discovered that she thrived from building close relationships with patients. Constantly striving to provide exceptional patient care, she will be your greatest advocate as a patient. Her motto is “If you do what you love, you’ll never work a day in your life!” She truly picked the right profession as working by her side never feels like work!
Liz has a charming daughter and three energetic boys. Her personal time is mainly spent with her family. They enjoy cooking new recipes together and have the occasional tickling match! There’s never a dull moment in her house and it is always filled with laughter.
