Lina – Dental Hygienist
My connection with dentistry is an interesting one. As a child, I had a bad experience with a dentist, which led to my fear of visiting another one. In fact, I did not go to a dentist until I was twelve year old. Thanks to my parents who talked me into going, the new doctor put me at ease and helped me forget my fear. The positive experience sparked my fascination with the dental field, and after graduating high school, I started my studies towards hygiene. In 2012, I graduated from West Coast University and began working. What I love most about my job is interacting with my patients and educating them on how to maintain a healthy oral cavity. My goal is to put my patients at ease, and help them feel comfortable coming to the dental office. When I’m not working, I like to spend my time outdoors; hiking, camping, or just traveling, reading books and learning new things.
Mariam – Dental Hygienist
I attended Dental School in Cuba (1997 – 2001) and then went on to West LA College to complete the dental hygiene program. To maintain my license and build on my skills, I regularly participate in continuing education courses. What I love most about my job is educating patients as well as seeing their confidence through their smiles. I truly enjoy treating a patient as a whole, and contributing to the overall health and wellness of our patients. Dental hygiene is an ever-changing vocational field that will give me the opportunity to evolve and grow in my career. The knowledge that is gained from the profession can be used throughout one’s life in many different ways.
I love Broadway Dental Office because we offer our patients in Glendale advanced equipment, we are a great team, and we all want the best for all of our patients.
I recently became engaged, and when I am not in the dental office, I am busy preparing for my wedding, which is a lot of work!
Maria – Administrator
My activities in Dentistry began in 2004, as I started working in a General-Cosmetic Dental office, as a receptionist. Within a few months, discovering my passion and devotion for this job, I realized I wanted to grow in this field. That’s exactly what I did. I was introduced to the billing department which I mastered immediately. Being driven and demonstrating a willingness to help was recognized by my peers and supervisors. I gradually moved up and became assistant manager in one of Southern California’s largest dental corporations. Like most loving mothers, I put my children first. Therefore, when the opportunity to work at Broadway Dental presented itself, my decision was simple and quick. Being close to my home, my children’s school, and to the work I loved doing, I moved closer to them in a location that was ideal for all. I’ve continued to add years to my dental career at Broadway Dental since August of 2014. My new team members and I have transformed this office to a modern, paperless, and chic practice. I take my job very seriously as I’m the first person our patient see and the last person to say goodbye. I would like to welcome everyone to our office and thank them for allowing us to take care of their dental needs.
