Teresa, RDA, EF II
I started in the dental field in 1983 as a dental assistant. Through the years I received my credentials to become a registered dental assistant with expanded functions II. Also, I received an orthodontic assistant permit. My passion for caring for and helping our patients create beautiful smiles makes my career very rewarding. In 1993 I had the opportunity to join Dr. Hillendahl’s team and I am so thankful to be part of this amazing office. My commitment to dentistry continues out of the office, as I am on the SDDS educational/ethics committee, a member of the CDA, the ADAA and a clinical instructor for the RDAEFII dental assisting program. On my off time, I enjoy hiking, biking, skiing, jogging and photography.
I joined Dr. Hillendahl’s team in 1994. I have 25 years of dental experience as a RDA. I love helping others, meeting new patients and building rapport with them. Working with Dr. Hillendahl and his staff is a great pleasure. In my spare time, I love to spend time with family and friends and of course, playing golf!
Fresh out of school I had the wonderful opportunity to join Dr. Hillendahl’s amazing dental team in 2013. Being a member of the team has inspired me to become the best assistant I can be. It’s so rewarding to be with a group of people who are ethical, caring and putting the patients first. Outside of the office, I enjoy going to the ocean, paddle boarding and hiking.
I have been a dental hygienist with Dr. Hillendahl’s team for 20 plus years. This has been a joy for me to have a career serving people, growing wonderful relationships and being part of an always changing journey towards our patient’s dental health. On my off time I find myself with my husband, children and grandchildren, enjoying skiing, camping or involved with church activities.
I feel very fortunate to still love what I do after 25 plus years as a Dental Hygienist. As a mom of two boys, hygiene has been a great career for me. Dentistry gives me the opportunity to serve people and establish wonderful relationships by being part of the patient journey towards their dental health. I graduated from Loma Linda University in 1989 and came on board with Dr. Hillendahl in 2001. I feel blessed to be a part of this amazing practice. When not working, I enjoy hiking, road biking, scuba diving and outdoor adventures with my boys and my dog Shilo.
As a wife and mother of three children, balancing a career and family is made easy working with Dr. Hillendahl and his amazing dental team. Since graduating from Sonoma State University with a degree in Biology, I completed my Dental Hygiene degree. I have been impressed to work with Dr. Hillendahl because of his highest regard for providing quality dental care. I joined Dr. Hillendahl’s team in 2010 and I feel proud to be a part of this professional Practice. Hope to see you soon!
