MaryAnn - Registered Dental Hygienist


Registered Dental Hygienist

I have been in the dental field since 1980.  I worked as a dental assistant for many years and decided to go back to school to get my license to become a Hygienist.  I graduated Southwestern College in 2004 with my Hygiene degree.  I love working with patients of all ages and enjoy getting to know them on a personal level.  I’m passionate about dental education and have assisted in training and testing Hygiene students at Southwestern College.

In my free time, I enjoy entertaining friends and family, cooking & salsa dancing with my husband Aurelio.   I am a dedicated mother of 6 and I love exploring new places in San Diego with my family.

My name is Bernadette, but most people call me Bernie. I am one of the hygienists here at the office. As a professional, my calling is to serve people & develop lasting relationships by promoting health & wellness through the provision of dental hygiene care.

I have been in the dental field since 2001. I graduated from Southwestern College in 2004 with a degree in Dental Hygiene with Honors. I found “my home” here at Dr. Dhir’s office in 2011.   When I am not in the office, I love to hang out with my husband, Chris, and our four boys. I enjoy cooking, entertaining family and friends, and going on mission trips locally and internationally.

Sebastian - Registered Dental Assistant


Registered Dental Assistant

My name is Sebastian and I’ve been with Dr. Dhir’s team for over ten years. What I enjoy most about working here is we are like family. We get along well and are always are having fun.  I became a Registered Dental Assistant in 2004.  I am CPR Certified and a member of the Association on Dental Implant Auxillaries.  I love learning things about our patients and you can be sure that a joke or two will be shared if you are in my operatory!  In my spare time, I love to spend time with my girls:  my wife and daughter….  I also enjoy golfing, gardening and playing the banjo!

Vesta - Registered Dental Assistant


Registered Dental Assistant

My name is Vesta and I have been with this team since 2004. Born and raised in San Diego I love everything this city has to offer, especially the weather! When not in the office I prefer to be outside, either on the trails or beach, but most of the time I am shuffling my son, Zayne, to Soccer or Badminton games.  I have been in the dental field since 1996 and became a Registered Dental Assistant in 1997.  I am CPR certified and a member of the Association of Dental Implant Auxiliaries.  I find that in dentistry, it’s mostly about building relationships with the patients and continuous learning.  With my experience and knowledge of dentistry I hope I can make patients feels comfortable while they are under our care!

Tammy - Office Manager, Registered Dental Assistant


Office Manager, Registered Dental Assistant

Having been in the dental field for over 25 years, I have had many duties: from sterilization to management.  I consider myself a team player and I’m not above “getting my hands dirty!”  Keeping my license as a Registered Dental Assistant means that from time to time, you can find me helping out in the operatories when I’m needed.  I have been with the practice since 1997; it is “HOME” to me.  Going to trainings to improve ourselves, our knowledge and our work is a big part of why we work so well as a team and I am thankful for that!  Our “team” is a family and our patients are an extension of that family.

In my free time, I enjoy travel, photography, scrapbooking, cooking and spending time with loved ones: especially my nephews and my pup!
