Meet the Staff

Jessica Wiegers - Office Manager


In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my boys, watching baseball games at Petco Park and movie night with my family. My favorite part of dentistry is interacting with patients and overcoming any financial obstacles to achieve their perfect smile. I love seeing people smiling. It is an amazing transformation, when I see a patient afraid to smile because of their dental issues. And once the treatment is complete it is the most amazing sight to see them walk out of our office with a big smile from ear to ear and no longer afraid!



Bobbi Hernandez - Dental Assistant/Back Office Supervisor

Hello, I have been in the dental field since 1977. I truly love working with and making patients as comfortable as it they be. Through the years I have watched small children as they grow up into fine adults and bring their own children as patients into the practice. I believe in staying positive about life, fitness and most importantly family. My motto in life is:" Live each day to its fullest and smile, Baby, smile...!"




Junith Basa - RDA

I am a loving mother of two cute daughters, with who I enjoy spending time in the park and on the beach. I have been working in the dental field for over 20 years. My mission is to help patients feel as comfortable as possible during their dental treatment. My patients are my friends, even if they were not before, they will become such after. I feel what they feel, and I can honestly say that the dental field is a major part of my life.
