Hello, my name is Priscilla and I’m very proud and honored to be a part of such an amazing team. I’m originally from South Africa, but I’ve made Southern California my home for the past 17 years. My passion for dentistry started over 12 years ago as a dental assistant. I continued my education and graduated in 2008 as class valedictorian from Cerritos College with highest honors and received the Dental Hygiene Departmental award. I deeply care about every patient, and believe in practicing dental hygiene according to current evidence, providing the highest standard of care for all my patients. When I’m not busy helping patients improve their smiles, I’m raising my beautiful 4 year old son. I enjoy traveling, doing all kinds of sports, and spending time with family and friends.
