Hi, my name is Karen. I was born and raised in Visalia. I graduated from Fresno City Dental Hygiene School in 2006 and have been so happy to be with Dr. B since 2009. Dr. B is a pleasure to work with. He genuinely cares for our patients and takes pride in making their mouths feel healthy and beautiful. I love doing my part in keeping our patients happy, healthy, and very comfortable. In my spare time, I spend most of my time taking care of my family – my husband and three wonderful children. They keep us running, but we are having the time of our life raising them.
- Rose | Registered Dental Hygienist
Hi there, my name is Rosalee. I graduated from dental hygiene school from Fresno City College in 2017. I love my new career as a dental hygienist. Working for Dr. B is great; I have the opportunity to help educate my patients on improving their oral health. When I’m not working I spend the most time I can with family and friends. I find any reason to travel and I love exploring new places. Summer is my favorite time of the year for BBQs, camping, and boating.
- Rebecca | RDH Registered Dental Hygienist
Hello, I’m Rebecca. I graduated from The University of Southern California with a Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene and recently earned a Master of Arts in Teaching from USC Rossier School of Education. Dr. B and I both graduated from USC School of Dentistry. We started our beautiful dental practice in 1997, have five children, and feel privileged to work with an incredible team of compassionate people. Our patients are pretty awesome, too!
I like continuing education because it helps me improve my capacity to understand how people learn and it deepens the ways I value individuals and their experiences. Focusing on dental health care from a scientific and humanistic approach can greatly improve patient care.
My focus resides in patient care, patient education, team education/training, and giving our patients their best dental experience. We deliver outstanding dental care and continually look for ways to ensure dental care exceeds your expectations. See you soon!
