Melissa


I was born and raised in the mid-west. During high school, my family moved to California. I graduated from Concorde Career Institute in 2000 as Valedictorian and recipient of the Juliette Sutherland Award.  I received my Dental Assistant Certificate, Life Support Certificate, Coronal Polishing Certificate and X-Ray License at this institute.  After college, I traveled with my spouse and volunteered with the Air Force.  My son is enlisting in the Air Force. My daughter is still at home, attending the wonderful schools in Los Alamitos. I am an avid reader, I enjoy baking and crafting.  I continue to volunteer for the military.

I have been working for Dr. Lee for over 15 years.

After high school I attended North-West College for Dental. I am trained in basic life support and I have my x-ray license and Coronal Polishing Certificate. I am married with two teenagers: one is headed off to college, and the other will be attending high school. I enjoy hiking with the girls at the office. My weaknesses are Mac-Lip Gloss, Oreo cookies, Starbucks, and Hershey Bars with almonds. I am passionate about cooking and growing my own vegetables.

I graduated from Bryman College with my life support certification, x-ray license, Coronal Polishing and Dental Assisting Certificates. After I received my license as a registered dental assistant, I obtained my Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Assistant certification. Every year I take continuing education to make sure my knowledge base is up to date.  I enjoy all forms of dancing and spending time with my family.
