Our Team includes experienced professionals, led by Dr. Dozier. We each share the belief that our care should be comprehensive and courteous while responding fully to your individual needs and preferences.
Our staff hygienists include Lynnette, Sara, Ashley, and Elise with a combined total of over 70 years experience and are dedicated to comfortable individualize treatment so our patients can learn and utilize the easiest, most effective preventive home care. You will be well cared for in their gentle and competent hands.
Lynnette’s attention to detail has allowed us to develop our prevention-oriented philosophy with passion for people and dentistry. We have had the privilege of working together since she started here in 1987, just 2 years after Dr Dozier started practice. Now, 30 years later, she still forms such an important part of our team focused on educating and assisting you in achieving a healthy mouth and lifetime smile.
Sara has been with us for 6 years, first as assistant and later as a dental hygienist after her graduation from UOP and Fresno College. She is familiar with all phases of care, and you will be re-assured with your care in her gentle and competent hands.
We’ve worked with Ashley for 5 years and she provides care in our office on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Her years of experience after graduating from UOP Dental Hygiene and her long-time and on-going work with a local Board-certified Periodontist allows her to provide our patients with in-depth periodontal expertise.
Elise is with us often on our Saturday office hours, and we’re happy she is continuing to work with us after her new baby was born this year. Elise’s gentle and friendly approach makes even our most fearful and sensitive patients feel better about going to the dentist.
Our hygienists stay with us because they share the values that run throughout our practice, and that is to provide competent thorough care that understands the crucial importance of educating our patients about disease processes and how simple but proper home care techniques are the foundation upon which good oral health is built to last a lifetime. No matter how long it’s been or whether you feel your teeth and gums are not where they should be, they will show you how to make it better, and you will love that feeling. Helping patients get there is what this office is about.
In to meet all you dental care needs in a clean, courteous, and professional manner, our team includes three dental assistants: Melanie, RDA, Marlen, DA, and Eva, DA. They are all radiology certified in the State of Calfornia, well-trained, and have years of dental chairside experience. Jamie is also certified and assists at chairside as needed.
The clinical assistants wear many hats related to knowing all the material applications and instrument setups needed for multiple types of treatment with the doctors, informing patients about procedures and answering questions you might have, while maintaining sterilization and disinfection protocols, helping our hygienists with their duties and keeping us on time for your appointment, which is a big priority for us. The smooth functioning of our office depends upon their hard work, tireless efforts, and unwavering attention to detail. They try very hard with each patient to make sure you are informed, listened to, and comfortable as we provide care.
Supporting an office environment that is efficient, friendly, and professional, our office coordinators Jean and Jamie greet our patients, and make every attempt to set appointments that can accommodate your personal schedule. With many years of experience in high quality GP and Specialist dental offices, Jean is a capable expert to explain and facilitate insurance and financial arrangements.
Jamie is familiar with all phases of dental treatment. She has been with our office for 15 years with training and experience both at Chairside and in the Front Office. Jamie, Jean and the rest of our staff truly understand what it takes to provide positive, individualized dental care that always strives to consider your unique needs.
Our efforts to provide you the best care we can deliver, from fulfilling your expectations about your treatment, solving problems and doing good dentistry, working with insurance companies and helping patients afford the care they want, while educating patients for life-long better oral health all takes a mutually-supportive team that is organized and motivated to do our best for you.
Marlen summed up a lot of what drives our office when she said “I am part of an office where we not only take care of our patients, but we also take care of each other. Each and every day we strive to treat our patients with the care they deserve.”
