Josue Villalobos - Registered Dental Assistant
I’ve been in the Dental Field for over 9 years. My love for dentistry began when I enrolled in a dental assisting class in the Mission Trails R.O.P center in Salinas in 2010. After several years of working as a DA, I wanted to further my education and expand my clinical skills, therefore, in 2018 I went back to school and obtained my Registered Dental Assisting (RDA) license. I have a broad knowledge of the many different aspects of dentistry as I've worked in several different dental offices and clinic settings right out of High School . Staying current and up to date on the latest in dentistry by taking continuing education classes locally and attending annual dental conventions further fuels my passion and enthusiasm for dentistry. I highly enjoy the patient interaction and feel joy and happiness through service and giving.
Outside of work, I enjoy time with my family, dear friends, and my amazing girlfriend. Traveling and helping others in the community is also something I'm passionate about.
Gloria Meza - Registered Dental Assistant
I have worked in the dental field for 3 years. I attended Carrington College in San Jose. I like being able to help patients out with any question they have regarding their smiles as well explaining insurance questions and concerns.
In my spare time, I love to spend time with my son, traveling and going to outdoor events.
Lizzette Huerta - Registered Dental Hygienist
I have worked in the dental field for nearly 11 years from assistant to registered dental assistant to now a dental hygienist. I have worked along side our trusted Dr. Ajlouni as her assistant for many years before furthering my career in the dental field. I have always had a passion for dentistry and striving in helping my patients with the importance of oral care.
When I'm not working, I enjoy home time with family & friends, traveling and outdoor activities like hiking. I believe it's not considered work if you love what you do.
