Gail

Registered Dental Assistant

I am a native Orange County girl.  I have been a dental assistant and/or office manager/receptionist for the past 25 years.  Dr. Meloni and I have four wonderful children, all happily married, and six beautiful grand children.  I enjoy our growing family, great friends, golf, my "ladies book club" and traveling.  I have been blessed to have a husband with a passion for travel, who has taken me on many great vacations around the world.

 


 

Denise

Registered Dental Assistant

I have been in the dental field for over 30 years, first working as a Registered Dental Assistant before becoming a receptionist.  I've been with Dr. Meloni since 2004.

I share my life with my husband, Mike, and our pets.  We live in Corona.  I love spending time with family and friends and enjoy cooking, traveling, and gardening.

 

 


Carol

Registered Dental Hygienist

I started in dentistry in 1973 at the front desk and as an assistant.  In 1977, I graduated from the UCLA/Cerritos College Dental Hygiene Program and have certirficates in local anesthestia, soft tissue curettage, nitrous oxide-oxygen sedation, and CPR.  I have always worked in general/cosmetic/family offices but also in periodontal practices.  I was a clinical instructor at the USC School of Dentistry and have enjoyed implementing periodontal therapy and soft tissue management programs in general practices.  I joined Dr. Meloni in 2003 and I love helping people have a beautiful smile and achieve a better quality of life through improved oral and physical health. 

I am a native of Southern California and enjoy life with my husband and our son, two dogs, a stepdaughter, stepson, two granddaughters, and two grandsons (as of 12-15-11.)  I love God, reading mystery fiction, walking with our dogs around the lake, our church, watching movies, and getting to the gym.


Keri

Registered Dental Assistant

I became a dental assistant in 1995 and have worked for Dr. Meloni since 1996. I can definitely say that I love my job. My goal is to make sure every patient recieves the best possible care and leaves with a smile.

I reside in Corona with my husband, Arnie and our two children, Derek and Danielle. I love hanging out with my family, football and shopping.

 

 


Naomi

Registered Dental Hygienist

I have been in the profession of dental hygiene since 1980 and joined Dr. Meloni's practice in 2003.  I have enjoyed assisting our patients to achieve the best dental health possible,  each one of them bringing a special blessing to the practice.  When I'm not in the office, you can find me serving in a local Orange County church, playing in the dirt in my garden, or preparing a meal for my husband and two sons.
