meet our team

I'm a Registered Dental Assistant graduated from the health sciences department of College of Marin.

I began my career with Dr. Rinck in July of 2006. I love my job very much. I enjoy interacting with our fabulous pateints and working with our knowledgeable and amazing team. I maintain my degree by taking courses on the ever changing technology of Dentistry.

I am a happy girl who loves bright colors, happy music and funny movies.

I have been in the dental field for twenty eight years. Sixteen of those years have been with Dr. Rinck. I hold an extended license in dentistry that allows me to place all restorations, permanently deliver appliances, complete root canals and take all master impressions. I am passionate about dentistry and patient care.

My interests are golfing, skiing, motorcycle trips, and I enjoy family and friends.

I am a registered dental hygienist and graduated from UCSF. I had several friends who were hygienists and saw it as a good career.

Working as a RDH has allowed me to bring health education to several generations of families. As a RDH I have provided Dental Health Care to people who over many years have become more than just patients.

My co-workers are like family. We spend more time together than with our biological families and we have become very close. I enjoy taking a lot of continuing education courses. I like to see what is new and keep up with the times. I especially like to go to the annual scientific conference in San Francisco. It is always on the cutting edge of technology.

I grew up in Novato and graduated from San Marin high school in 1971. I have been married to my husband, Ron since 1980. I have two stepchildren and four gradkids.

My favorite color is green. My favorite song is "When You Say Nothing At All", sung by Allison Cross. My favorite book is "Modoc". My favorite vacation is anywhere in the wilderness with my horse or traveling out of the country. My hobbies are endurance horseback riding, gardening, and scuba diving.

I love working at Dr. Rinck’s and the close family of my co-workers

I have been working in this dental practice for over twenty five years. I have a lot of front office experience. I like to take good care of all of Dr. Rinck's patients. I work with a great team, and I think that's what makes this practice so special.

I was born and raised in this area. I have been married to my husband, John, for thirty years. We have three boys and three grandchildren. I also work at the YMCA as an aerobics instructor. I see some of our patients in my classes. It's a great feeling of community.

I love the San Franciso Giants. I love to garden, play my guitar, read, make jewelry. I have three Jack Russell terriers, who I adore. I love the ocean and a full moon. Family is most important to me.

Live, Love, and Laugh.
