Hello, my name is Serena. I studied to have a career in dentistry at UEI College and graduated in 2020. Working in the dental field really changed my life. As a little girl I remember going to the dentist and asking the assistants what it is like working in dentistry. They all said it’s an amazing job and now here I am years later doing what I always dreamt of. In my free time I enjoy cruising around with my boyfriend and relaxing with my family.
Karen-Registered Dental Hygienist
Hi. I'm Karen Michinock BS,RDH. I am an alumni of West Virginia University School of Dentistry in Dental Hygiene. My greatest joy as a hygienist is passing my preventive dental care knowledge onto my patients. I have been involved in Ventura County Dental Hygienists' Association throughout the past 25 years as Community Health Chair and volunteer at the Simi Valley Free Clinic Dental Program. Family time is most important for me and I also enjoy hiking, crafts and quilting.

Sarah- Registered Dental Hygienist
Hello, my name is Sarah. I am a graduate of the Oxnard College Dental Hygiene Program. My favorite part of being a dental hygienist is seeing patients that are very nervous from past dental experiences and then leaving my chair relieved and happy with their visit. One main thing that I pride myself in as a clinician is thorough patient education and setting goals that are realistic for my patients to achieve. In my free time I love to paint, draw, go to the beach, and spend time with family. Ask me about my crazy socks, I’ll have different ones each time you see me.
