We are pleased to welcome you and your family, and we look forward to working with you.


Office Manager

My focus is on managing the office, from overseeing all staff members to monitoring all patient activity, taking care of accounts payable, and all personnel issues. My 40+ years of experience are invaluable to my ability to handle any issue that may arise. I feel so fortunate to work with our incredible, easy-going staff and doctors. They make me look forward to coming to the office every day!

I live in Cupertino with my husband. When not at work or traveling, which I do frequently, I enjoy walking, doing puzzles, and gardening. My biggest love outside of my family is caring for foster animals!


Registered Dental Assistant

I work hard to make sure every person feels comfortable and relaxed during their visits. I seat patients, answer their questions, and explain what will happen during their procedure. With my ten plus years of chairside assisting experience, I am skilled at helping the doctor while making sure the patient is comfortable and informed. I enjoy talking with kids, hearing about their day, and cheering for them as they achieve healthy, beautiful smiles! I feel very fortunate to have joined this team in 2006.


Registered Dental Assistant

I really enjoy teaching patients and parents, helping children take control of their oral health, and assisting with procedures. Watching a child become excited about caring for their smile and seeing their enthusiasm is wonderful! I started working in the field in 2006 and found my home here in 2015. It’s an amazing environment where we really help people develop happy smiles. I love seeing the results of improved home care and the completion of restorative work: the children and their parents are so happy and relieved!



Registered Dental Assistant

I enjoy talking and laughing with patients and parents. I’m glad to be part of each patient’s journey toward a life of healthy, happy smiles! While I joined the team here in 2014, I started in the dental field in 1976. I can honestly say this is a group of highly knowledgeable, compassionate people who want the best for our patients! I provide patient care, making sure they are comfortable, relaxed, and understand what we’re going to do. Sitting chairside, I assist the doctors with various procedures while making sure our patient is comfortable.

I live in Newark with my husband. I have two children and one grandchild. When I’m not at work or traveling, I enjoy walking, gardening, drawing, and reading. My biggest love, outside of my family, is caring for foster animals. I volunteer with several rescue groups.


Registered Dental Assistant

I focus on making sure every patient feels comfortable and safe during their visits. I want them to be at home here and know that each of us cares about them. I joined the practice in 2013, bringing with me more than ten years of experience helping people develop great oral health and smiles they love. I work chairside with Dr. Bulucea, helping her provide patients with the best, most efficient treatment. I love coming to work and being part of a great and enthusiastic team that shares the same goal: excellence in all we do!

I live in Santa Clara with my husband and our daughter. My time off is spent with my family and friends. I enjoy going to the beach and doing various crafts.


Registered Dental Assistant

I am responsible for seating and caring for patients and working closely with the doctor during procedures. One of my main goals is to help our young patients have a positive experience so they won’t grow up with dental anxiety. I do everything I can to create a calm, comfortable environment for them. I feel so fortunate to work in such a relaxed, stress-free office where everyone is very professional and cares about each patient.

I live in San Jose with my husband and two children. We love being outside and enjoy swimming and reading.


Front Desk

Four years ago I transitioned into the dental field.  I love working and interacting with people and making them feel comfortable in the dental environment.  I work with both the orthodontic and pediatric patients in scheduling, checking on insurance, billing and treatment planning.

I live in San Jose with my husband and two daughters.  In my spare time I love to bake, shop, and spend time with family.
