Sarah | Registered Dental Assistant in Extended Functions
Hi, I’m Sarah, I graduated from Dental Assisting School (Galen College) in 2005. I have had an RDA for more than 15 years. I have been working with Dr. Navarro since 2009. I decide to go back to school at the University of the Pacific School of Dentistry in San Francisco. I went from being an assistant to being able to place fillings and seat crowns. It has been the best career choice I have made. I recently joined Dr. Bodensteiner and Staff in January 2022. I love being able to help people brighten their smiles.
Time with family is very important to me, and work is just like being home with my family. I am married with 3 daughters that all play sports. I hope one day I will be able to meet your family.
Dr. B and his staff were amazing as always! I am confident that they care for my daughters exactly as they would care for their own. I never hesitate to recommend this office because they are always professional, polite, and prompt!
