Yadira Rodgriguez, Office Manager, RDA
“I started my career in the dental field in 2001, and have been an RDA since 2006. Building great relationships with our patients is one of the most rewarding aspects of my job. I enjoy working as a team with my coworkers, and am proud of the care we give to our families. I am a bay area native, and live in San Pablo. In my spare time I enjoy going to parks, libraries, and walks with my family. I have a smart and beautiful 16 year old daughter who keeps me current with the latest trends, as well as a beloved pet dog, Snoopy, and pet cat, Savannah”.
Itzia Carmona, Front office / Billing specialist, RDA
“I have been a dental assistant since 2007, and I have loved every year. As an RDA, I love how rewarding it is to help children feel calm and earn their trust. In the front office, I enjoy helping families understand their dental benefit plans, and how to use their benefits to their best advantage. I live 10 minutes away in San Pablo, and enjoy being a part of our patient community and seeing our patients outside of the office. I have a four year old daughter who has more energy than I know what to do with! She is a patient here and loves it because she gets to play in the waiting room and then watch a movie when she is having her checkup. As a family we like to go on hikes and stay out doors”.
Patsy Huerta, RDA
“I have been in the dental field since 2008. What I love about my job is being able to help others, whether it is helping a patient get out of pain, or simply showing them how to angle their toothbrush to keep a nice healthy smile. Working with kids has been the best experience, because it feels great to give a child a great experience at the dentist. I currently live in Richmond with my 7 year old son Adrian. On my free time I like to read a good book, go hiking or go to the gym”.
Indalia Carmona, RDA
“My name is Indalia, and I have been an RDA since 2015. I love helping children and their families create a wonderful and memorable first dental experience. I enjoy watching children look forward to their next dental visits. I grew up in Hercules, and now live with my three children, Karina, Adrian and Gabriel and husband David along with my dogs Denali and Berlin, in the city of San Pablo. In my free time my family and I enjoy the outdoors; we hike, camp and go swimming”.
Jaylee Reeder, RDA
“I started my career in the dental field in 2012 when I volunteered for the American Red Cross on Eglin Air Force Base. I received my RDA license in May, 2015, and have chosen to work in pediatrics ever since. I gain satisfaction from knowing that I am helping to create a positive impact on children’s oral health, and helping them to keep their beautiful smiles! I am a Florida native, and am currently stationed at Travis Air Force Base with my husband and two house rabbits. I enjoy hiking, skydiving, and every activity that revolves around water.
