Registered Dental Assistants


Alice, Registered Dental Assistant Extended Function

Alice attended City College of San Francisco where she received her certificate as a registered dental assistant. She later continued her education at UCSF and became expanded function certified.

Her passion and commitment for her work and patients goes beyond the office. Occasionally Alice will make special house calls for her elderly patients. Even with her constant desire for work, she manages to find time to travel to the Hawaiian Islands at least once a year. During her downtime (if she has any), you can find her sewing quilts, cooking up new fried rice recipes, and indulging her imagination in a racy Danielle Steel novel. Alice is fluent in Cantonese and Vietnamese.
