Meet Our Oral Surgery Staff
I have been with the practice since 2000, first as a surgical assistant and now as financial coordinator. I am a certified Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Anesthesia Assistant and specialize in medical/dental coding and insurance policies. I enjoy working in the oral surgery field and utilize my knowledge of insurance Dental Implants policies to make your visit with us as seamless as possible.
I was born and raised in Vietnam and moved to Long Beach, California in 1994. I worked in an oral surgery office in Long Beach for 5 years as a surgical assistant while attending college, then I relocated to the Bay area and joined Dr. Shimane’s team.
When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my husband and my son, watching movies and gardening.
I joined Dr. Shimane’s office as Scheduling Coordinator in 2015. I graduated from Las Positas College where I obtained my AA degree and have been working in the healthcare field ever since. I truly have a passion for helping our patients and their families while making sure their experience is welcoming and enjoyable. Here at Shimane Oral Surgery everyone is so friendly and professional and I am so happy to be a part of such a great team!
I grew up in Castro Valley and was even a patient of Dr. Shimane’s for my wisdom teeth removal as a teenager! In my free time I enjoy traveling, gardening and spending time with my husband, family and friends.
I became a part of the Shimane Oral Surgery team in 2015 and love my position as the Treatment Coordinator. I enjoy helping our patients and working with such a great team!

I am an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgical Assistant and I have been with this wonderful office since 2004. I received my Associate in Art Degree in Dental Assisting from Heald College. What I enjoy most about working at the practice is helping provide patients with the smile that they deserve in their amazing transformation with their implant treatment. I also enjoy all the lovely ladies that I work with; we truly have a great team.
When I am not in the office I enjoy spending my time with my two beautiful daughters.
I joined Shimane Oral Surgery in 2022 in the front office while I attended dental school to become a dental assistant and now currently assist in surgeries. I have the best of both worlds being able to work front and back office! I enjoy being a part of such a great office and helping all of our patients with their oral surgery needs!
In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family, husband and daughter. I love to cook, bake and take care of my fish.

My journey in dentistry began at College of Alameda, where I achieved my Dental Assisting Certification in 2011. My main goal in dentistry is to provide excellent care for the patient.
