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 started working at Dr. Rinck's office on March 26, 2014 as the insurance coordinator. I have more than 5 years experience working in a high energy office environment. I communicate effectively with patients about their care and help make the office run smoothly by booking appointments and and doing the billing.

I earned my bachelors degree in psychology at San Diego State University. This has helped me relate to and understand patients' needs.

I was born and raised in Marin County. I love all animals and hope to own a dog in the future. I love any kind of dessert especially chocolate. My favorite hobbies are hiking, traveling, and relaxing at the beach.

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.

My dental career began in October 2008. I attended Taft College and became a registered dental hygenist. I decided to become a RDH after interviewing my dentist for a high school project. I enjoy taking continuing education courses and learning new techniques and technologies. I like helping people with their oral and overall health. My co-workers are wonderful and make coming to work fun and enjoyable.

I am from Petaluma, California and am married to my husband, Kevin. My favorite color is green. I love cats, desserts, anything chocolate. My hobbies are hiking, gardening, spending time with family and friends, wine tasting and vacationing at the beach.

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 graduated from USC and got my bachelors in dental hygiene in 2007. I started working July 2007 as registered dental hygienist. I always like people and their smiles. I love my patients and knowing that I can give them healthy and happy smiles. Our office is really friendly and I love the people I work with. I love to learn about new technology so every chance I have I sign up for CE courses and Dr. Rinck is kind enough to pay for it.

I'm originally from Iran. I am married with no children. My favorite color is black and my favorite song is “I turn to you” by Melanie C. My favorite book is "Pride and Prejudice". I have a dog and my hobbies are computer, movies, skiing and traveling. My favorite vacation place is London.

I believe your smile is the greatest gift of all.

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.
