Our Caring, Compassionate Team


I’ve been an RDA since 2002, with a passion for hygiene. I relocated to San Diego County and I’m thrilled to be a part of Dr. Kania’s team. I’ve always enjoyed dentistry, but periodontics has sparked an incredible, new interest for me. I enjoy working with people and doing everything possible to make them comfortable.

My children are grown, so I’ve rekindled some old passions: running, sightseeing and a new joy… hiking.

Michele – Registered Dental Hygienist

I’m passionate about offering exceptional patient care and am committed to helping others improve their overall oral and physical health. One thing I enjoy about working with Dr. Kania and her team is that we all treat our patients and one another like family. I’m a native San Diegan and, in my free time, enjoy the outdoors and being with my family and friends.


I have been a lead dental assistant and front office administrator since 1995. I enjoy working with patients in all aspects of dental care. I really love working with Dr. Kania and the team because everyone at our office is dedicated to giving our patients the best, state-of-the-art treatment in a professional and welcoming manner.

My husband, 5 kiddos, and I moved to San Diego from Minden, Nevada where I grew up. We love the beautiful weather here in San Diego! We spend time as a family Geocaching, playing games, and loving our new puppy, Gracie.


I have been working with Dr. Kania since 2013. I enjoy working with Dr. Kania because she is a welcoming and caring person who always has the best interests in her patient’s care. I enjoy working with people and learning all aspects of dentistry, from clinical to administrative. I am so happy to be part of Dr. Kania’s team! In my personal time, I enjoy spending time with my family, shopping, running, and hiking.
