Faviola is our office manager! She has been working in the dental field for 10 years.  She loves seeing and making the patients happy, especially when it comes to children as we see them grow up with us and make them feel like a family.  She was born and raised in Chula Vista and has recently settled down in El Cajon with her fiancee and 5 wonderful boys.

Faviola and her family like spending their time outdoors or just relaxing together at home enjoying each others company.

Desiree HoldemanDSC_0524a

Desiree is our front desk receptionist and we love the calming and pleasant personality she brings to our practice.  She has been working in the dental field for over 15 years. What she loves most about dentistry is building lasting relationships with patients and their families while keeping their smiles healthy. She is always eager to do whatever she can to make patients feel comfortable and answer any questions they may have.

She was born and raised in the beautiful city of San Diego.  She has settled down in sunny Santee with her husband of 17 years and their three children.  On most weekends, you can find Desiree and her husband cheering on their three children in youth sports and activities. She also enjoys charity work like volunteering with Charity World or running a 5k to support Santee School District.
