Meet Our Team


 

Maribel

Office Manager

Working with Dr. Vargas-Velasco, I have fallen in love with the dental field since day one!  We are more than just a team - we have grown to be a family and I enjoy working with such a talented group and getting to learn something new each and everyday.   

As the Office Manager, I ensure that our patients are able to make their appointments with ease and are able to get the dental care they need to get healthy.  I love being able to greet the patient from the moment they call to schedule their appointment to the second they walk into our office.  The best part of my job would be ensuring that our patients walk out with a smile on their face and happy that they received the care that they were looking for.   

I was born and raised in Texas up until my teen years.  I needed to get a break from the Texas heat and decided that San Diego would be the perfect destination!  I enjoy going on adventures and walks on the beach.  The part I enjoy the most is being able to spend quality time with my family and being able to make great memories.  

 

  

Mindy

Registered Dental Hygienist

I love people and am so happy I get to help our patients develop healthier smiles and lives. We have a wonderful practice, where our patients are cared for like family, and I am glad to spend my days working with smiles!

Being a Registered Dental Hygienist, I assess patients’ oral health, take X-rays, and provide gentle cleanings and scaling and root planing. A lot of my time with a patient focuses on education: I review their unique dental concerns and together we decide on a plan to help them remedy any issues. We talk about proper home dental hygiene and nutrition, and establishing healthy habits. Nothing makes me happier than seeing a clean, bright smile at a recall visit!

I’m originally from upstate New York and love living in San Diego! I’m married and have a daughter and a cat named Sushi. We keep busy bettering ourselves through church and spending as much time together as possible. I love time with family, hiking, participating in 5K races, camping, and exploring the outdoors.

 

 

Ariana

Dental Assistant

I love building trust and good relationship with our patients.  My goal, and that of Dr. Vargas-Velasco and my teammates at Greyling Dental, is to help patients to a path of dental health.  Making each dental experience a positive on that has our patient smiling is important and fulfilling to me.  

I am Dr. Vargas-Velasco's lead assistant and right hand in assisting patients during visits.   I seat and prepare the patients, take x-rays, and explain what we'll be doing.  I stay chair side to support the doctor while checking that our patient is relaxed and comfortable.  When we're finished, I provide home-care instructions, answer questions, and check that our patient is happy with everything.  I also maintain our back-office inventory and am cross trained to do front office work as well.  

I was born and raised in sunny San Diego.  I enjoy that outdoors and have a passion for drawing and art.  Outside the dental world, I love to spend the rest of my free time with my husband and our one year old son.  Everyday is different being a new parent, so enjoying every bit of it is what I look forward to each and everyday.  

 

 

Katrina

Dental Assistant

I enjoy my new career as a dental assistant this year and am excited to learn and experience so much more!  We provide a calm atmosphere for our patients by understanding and getting to know them on a more personal level.  It's such a great feeling to help our patients feel better about their dental health care needs.  

As a dental assistant, I help Dr. Vargas-Velasco with our patients during their visit.  When I seat the patient, I make sure that everything that is needed is set up and ready to go.  When I am not sitting chair side for doctor, I am taking patient's xrays, impressions, and digital scanning.  I also completing back office duties such as sterilization, stocking the office, checking on lab cases and helping follow up with patients, ensuring that they had a great visit.  

I was born and raised in Coachella Valley.  I have been living in San Diego since 2015.  I feel so spoiled livign in this city because I get to experience so much here in Sunny San Diego.  I get to attend some of my favorite festivals, concerts, and explore the outdoors when I play Frisbee Golf!

I strive to give the most comfortable dental appointment for our patients.  Knowing that the patients are happy makes me happy!  My favorite part about working at Greyling Dental is our teamwork and all the laughter we enjoy together when we're working.  

I have been a dental assistant for over 21 years and have been with Greyling Dental since 2017.  I assist Dr. Vargas-Velasco to help the patients have a wonderful dental appointment by getting the know our patients and finding what their biggest concerns.  With our latest technology, I am able to assist in creating beautiful smiles that will last a lifetime!
