Lisa, Treatment Coordinator

Hi, my name is Lisa. I am the Patient Coordinator/Front Desk Associate here at PDoWS. I have recently relocated back to my hometown of Sacramento. My previous dental experience was working as an RDA in the field of orthodontics for 15 years. Working at a pediatric dental office allows me to combine my love of working with children with my administrative background. I am often the voice you will hear when you phone our office. I am always happy to help, whether it be scheduling an appointment or anything else. When I am not working, I enjoy listening to music, hiking, baking and spending time with my 3 granddaughters.

Rim, Dental Assistant

My name is Rim, and I earned my bachelor’s degree from University of Khartoum in Sudan. I worked as internship assisting dental students in the faculty clinics and then joined a group of community health researchers as a dental team member to screen school children in the rural parts of Khartoum for their oral hygiene. Two years later I worked for a non-profit organization assisting medical officers and dentists examining and treating less privileged children in North and East Africa. Then coming to the United States I started working as a dental assistant. In my spare time I like to walk, decorate and play with my kids.

Danny, Registered Dental Assistant

Hello my name is Danny and I am one of the RDAs at Pediatric Dentistry of West Sacramento. I graduated from Carrington College where I earned my dental assisting certificate. I enjoy working at PDoWS because I get to have fun at work with amazing children, very helpful coworkers, and a great doctor. As a registered dental assistant, my goal is to make brushing your teeth fun and reminding the kids the importance of keeping your teeth happy. In my spare time I like to watch movies and go on last minute adventurous trips.

Amani, Registered Dental Assistant

Born in a far far away land, I am a super excited Registered Dental Assistant at Pediatric Dentistry of West Sacramento and a part of an amazing team. I graduated college in 2017 with a dual major: Interdisciplinary Studies, Social and Behavioral Sciences, and Arts of Science. One of the things I enjoy most about working at Pediatric Dentistry of West Sacramento is the commitment to serving patients and sincerely caring for their well being. When I'm not having fun caring for patients, I enjoy the sweet grace of family time, love adventurous activities and am no stranger to wild roller coasters and bungee jumping.

Tommy, Registered Dental Assistant

What initially drew me into dentistry is an easy question to answer. Simply put, I love to put a smile on people’s faces! My secret is keeping an open mind and a compassionate heart towards everyone. My favorite aspect of working in dentistry is that I get to meet so many new and continuing patients. Keeping that in mind, I’ve always felt that my personality would fit in perfectly with kids so that’s exactly why I decided to specialize in pediatrics. When I’m not cleaning teeth, I enjoy singing karaoke and cooking.

Erik, Tech, Communications, Multimedia

Hi everyone, my name is Erik and I handle computers, multimedia, and communications for PDoWS. I cut my teeth (is that a dental pun?) many years ago as a network engineer for a giant telecom company, then furthered my experience in VoIP and web app development over the years since. In my spare time I like to build robot-like things (which I'm sure is surprising to many of you given my background) and you'll usually find me enjoying time with my wife and son, slowly renovating my house, goofing around in the Sierras on a dirt bike, and flying radio controlled contraptions that crash a lot.
