We’re Here to Deliver Patient-Focused Care

Our Pleasanton dental team at Main Street Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics recognizes the importance that clinical and administrative staff play in a person’s decision to choose a particular dental practice for their little one. It’s not just the dental treatment that is provided by the dentist or orthodontist that matters but also the way their child is treated and cared for throughout the appointment. This is why you can count on us to provide a patient-focused approach that helps your little one remain happy and at ease throughout their appointment.

Angel has been working in the dental field for over a full decade, and there’s so many things to love about her job that she can’t even list them all! In particular, she really enjoys working with children and being able to appreciate their innocent honesty and philosophies on life. It allows her inner child to flourish and keeps her in the present moment. As for training, she studied at Carrington College in California and takes many continuing education courses to this day.

At home, Angel has two children who have brought her so much joy and taught her how to be a better human. As a group, they love to be out in nature, visit the ocean, go exploring, and try lots of new restaurants!

Brittany, Receptionist

When Brittany was younger, she had to have jaw surgery on her upper jaw to move it forward because of her severe underbite. This experience caused her to become fascinated with how much a smile can positively change how you feel about yourself! Today, as our dedicated receptionist, she enjoys creating great relationships with patients and helping them feel comfortable at the practice so they can have amazing experiences. 

Brittany is the oldest of three siblings and loves being a good big sister to her brother Matthew and sister Kaitlin. She's also the auntie to Karter, a wonderful nephew!
