Registered Dental Assistant
Bianca is certified as a Registered Dental Assistant, an achievement of only the top dental assistants in the country. She has experience in dental materials testing, cosmetic dentistry, high strength porcelain crown glazing, and fitting and polishing, as well as excellent skills in assisting in bonding and veneer placement. She has also assisted with over a dozen sedation cases, giving patients a painless memory-free “sleep” during their dental treatments.
Born and raised in Santa Barbara, Stephanie went to San Marcos High School and began working at Mountain and Sea Dental in 2013.
Stephanie has a very smiling and comforting personality. She received her dental assisting training in Dr. Carley’s office and has taken extra classes to be trained in X-ray-taking technique. She has the newest and most recent training in using digital X-rays and 3-D diagnostic imaging for CT scanning for implants or using CAD CAM to make digital crowns on the computer.
“I like it here because I meet different types of people and we’re helping them getting their teeth fixed and educating them on their health,” she says. “The team gets along so great; we are a little family.”
Stephanie says her typical day is pretty busy. She takes X-rays and is chair side with the dentists assisting oral surgery. After surgery, she gives post-op instructions on what to eat and how to take care of after the surgery.
“I was going to Santa Barbara City College to become a nurse,” Stephanie says. “I wanted to try new things and found out I like teeth.”
In the coming spring, Stephanie is registered to start her prerequisites for dental hygiene certification.
