Vicki

Administration

What I love most about my job is having my desk right by the front door, so I can welcome and greet our patients as soon as they walk in! Being on the front desk, I help the office with various administrative duties including scheduling, insurance, inventory and more. I love interacting with our clients and helping them through any questions they may have with paperwork. I also enjoy teaching patients how to utilize their insurance benefits so they can maximize their treatment needs in the most cost-effective way possible.

I have worked in the dental field for over 18 years, and have been with Dr. Bo since 2012. I love working in such a warm, personable environment and am very proud to be a part of the South Bay Dental Esthetics team!

Outside of the office, I spend my time with my #1 companion – my Grey Pit Bull, Chevy. We enjoy everything outdoors including camping, hiking, surfing, stand up paddle boarding, skateboarding, and snowboarding. I am also a mother of one beautiful daughter and grandmother of identical twin boys … I am very lucky!

Administration

I feel most empowered when I help our patients make a positive difference in their lives! My roles include billing insurance, and I enjoy the challenge of working with insurance companies and fighting for our patients benefits. I also coordinate treatment plans for our patients, which involves strategic planning to help our patients maximize their insurance benefits while simultaneously keeping their out-of-pocket expense as low as possible.

I began my dental career over 30 years ago, and have been with the South Bay Dental Esthetics family since 2007. Working with such a compassionate, and dedicated team makes me even more excited to come to work each day.

In my personal time, I enjoy hiking, going to concerts, fine dining, and traveling. But above all else, I enjoy spending quality time with my family and grand babies!

Kathy

Registered Occupational Hygienist

A healthy smile is the best smile! Being a hygienist, I specialize in preventative dental care and teach patients the best ways to practice effective oral hygiene. My passion is helping those with poor oral health and periodontal disease, and bringing them to a healthy, disease free state. One of my favorite parts of being a dental Hygienist is getting to know my patients and building relationships with them—hearing about their lives, children, etc. It makes my job so rewarding!

Having spent 26 years in the dental field, I can truly say that I love my job! I have worked alongside Dr. Bo since 2003 and have enjoyed every day of it.

Outside of the office, I like to spend time with my daughter and husband. As a family we love to go to concerts together and eat at restaurants. I also like to travel, go wine tasting, watch movies, read and exercise!

Alona

Registered Dental Assistant

I love working in an office that cares so much about its patients! As a Registered Dental Assistant, I assist our doctors with whatever they may need before, during, or after dental procedures. My top priority is making sure our patients feel comfortable, relaxed, and pain-free throughout their entire treatment! I also specialize in OSHA/HIPPA compliance and ensure that our entire office is constantly up to date with all policies and new developments.

I have been working in the dental field for over 25 years, and I have been with Dr. Bo since 1997. He is the best!

When I’m not at the office, I love to spend time with my family. I am happily married with two daughters and one son. We enjoy watching movies together as well as going out and trying new restaurants!

Yvonne

Expanded Function Registered Dental Assistant

Seeing our patients happy and excited about their smiles makes me smile, too! One of my favorite aspects to being an Expanded Function RDA is being able to help patients achieve their “dream smile”. Aside from helping our doctors during procedures and appointments, I also manage and run our office CEREC program—a computerized system that enables us to create same-day porcelain crowns. I continuously attend conferences and take courses to stay up to date with the latest technologies, ensuring that we always provide the most up-to-date and top-quality care.

I have been with Dr. Bo since the very beginning of my dental career over 20 years ago. Learning about our patients over the years and getting to know them on a personal level has made my career even more fulfilling than I ever could imagine!

In my spare time out of the office, I am actively involved in CrossFit and compete as much as possible. I also enjoy motorcycle riding as well as other adventurous activities. But above all else, I love spending time with my Mom and my French Bulldog, Nacho!
