We are pleased to welcome you and your family, and we look forward to working with you.


Kristi

Office Administrator

I am often found in the front and back office acting as a liaison. I finished my Associate of Science Degree in Dental Assisting in 2013 from Orange Coast College and later obtained my Bachelors of Science in Healthcare Administration from CSULB in 2017. I enjoy working with kids and families, and I am actively continuing my education and knowledge in the dental field through CE courses. I have been with Dr. Chu for over 4 years. I love being a part of such a wonderful team!

On my free time I teach bible studies and diligently study the scripture. I am an aunt of 4 kids and spend time with family often.

Lisa

Front Office Administrator

As our front-line representative for the office, you’ll find me at the front desk: welcoming patients as they arrive. Meeting our young patients and seeing their smiles after a smooth dental appointment is the best part of my day. I enjoy the friendships that develop between our team and those we care for, and getting to see how happy people are when they come in for a checkup.

Outside the office, I enjoy raising my kids and watching their sporting events. 

Alexandra

Registered Dental Assistant / Orthodontic Assistant

I graduated Concorde Career College in Garden Grove, CA in June 2016 with my certificate in dental assisting and obtained my RDA license shortly after. My favorite part of my job is interacting with kids. I am so touched when kids end the appointment with a smile and a hug because it gives me a sense of accomplishment. It has been great working with Dr. Chu and the whole team, because they are all so kind, fun, and loving!

I have 3 Alaskan malamutes named Koda, Kilala, and Khai. I enjoy being active as much as possible, which includes hiking and taking my dogs to dog beach. I love getting glammed up and helping others feel beautiful like Beyonce!

Johanna

Registered Dental Assistant / Orthodontic Assistant

I am bilingual in Spanish and English and have been in the dental field since 2001. I have a huge passion for kids and strive to help children and families feel at home and at ease while in the office. Working with Dr. Chu and the team has been great! We all share a common goal: to provide the highest quality care to patients.

I am married to my husband Frank. We have two beautiful daughters named Isabella and Daniella. I enjoy serving at church and often host game nights for kids at church.

Staphany

Registered Dental Assistant / Orthodontic Assistant

My education in the dental field prepared me to work in any dental office setting, so I can do anything from placing sealants on our pediatric patients to orthodontics. I love working one-on-one with patients of all ages: providing a great service and at the same time creating meaningful relationships. I am so happy to be working for Dr. Chu and the team because they have helped me broaden my experience and taught me so many new things. It’s a truly great environment.

Whenever I am not working, you might find me at the movie theater catching up on all the good movies this month. I enjoy shopping, hanging out with my sisters, watching movies with my family, getting mani/pedis, trying out new recipes, and cycling.

Veronica

Registered Dental Assistant / Orthodontic Assistant

I have worked in the dental field since graduating from Bryman College in 2008. The thing I like most about my job is working with our youngest patients. I work hard to earn their trust and friendship, to convince them that they are safe and being allowed to follow through with their dental cleaning.

I am married with two kids: Nick, who has been playing soccer for eight years, and Priscilla, who also loves soccer. We have a pet turtle that I found on my doorstep a day after our four-year-old fish died. As a family, we are involved in church and spend most of our weekends at soccer games. I also love to cook and watch movies.
