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.

Lexie – Registered Dental Hygienist

I grew up outside of Mt. Shasta, CA and moved to Encinitas last summer. I attended college in Sacramento and love working in periodontology where patients are motivated to save and keep their teeth! I feel rewarded to see the dramatic changes our patients make when partnered with education and support. I spend my off-time with my teenage daughter and son exploring this newfound beach life.

Together we enjoy snowboarding and skiing, swimming, cycling, boating, camping, snorkeling, flying, hiking, and cooking. Surfing and golf are coming soon!


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.
