Melinda

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!

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 relationships 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 one that has our patient smiling is important and fulfilling to me.

I am Dr. Vargas-Velasco's 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 chairside 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.

I was born and raised in sunny San Diego.  I enjoy the outdoors and have a passion for drawing and art.  Spending quality time with my family members and loved ones is very important to me. With my first child on the way, I am excited to start a new phase of my life!

As Office Manager, I oversee the practice, ensuring Dr. Vargas-Velasco and our team members have everything they need to focus on our patients’ needs and comfort. We strive to run smoothly and on time, to make visits stress-free and enjoyable!

I was born and raised in San Marcos. I have an amazing husband and two precious dogs.In my free time, I enjoy walks on the beach, morning hikes, and community street fairs. I love time with my family and friends and, of course, my two pups!
