Karyl – Registered Dental Assistant & Treatment Coordinator
I have been working for Dr. Mitchell as a Registered Dental Assistant and Treatment Coordinator since 1989. Dr. Mitchell is a natural teacher and I have had the priveledge of learning so much in my years working for him. To further our education, he has taken our team to many fun and instructional continuing education meetings and classes all over the country.
I feel blessed to work with such wonderful women who are warm, caring and very committed to patient care. It has been a very rewarding career for me, helping to make a positive difference in our patient’s lives!
I am married to my high school sweetheart and have two adult children who live in Colorado and Northern California. I enjoy travel, reading, gardening, shopping, sewing, crafting and home decorating.
Brigitte – Registered Dental Assistant
I have been working as an orthodontic R.D.A. since 1996 and have been working with Dr. Mitchell since 1999. I knew when I had braces as a teen that this was the field I wanted to get into and love. I have always noticed beautiful teeth and nice smiles and am thankful that I get to be a part of giving those smiles to our patients. Being an orthodontic assistant is enjoyable because of the relationships I build with the patients and their families. There’s always a fun beginning and a beautiful ending.
I am married with four children and 5 beautiful grandchildren. I enjoy spending time with them, as well as playing tennis, sewing, shopping and going to Disneyland. Also, I am the Pittsburgh Steelers’ number-one fan.
Sonia – Registered Dental Assistant
I am a new member of Dr. Mitchell’s staff and have been an orthodontic assistant since 2002. I enjoy learning all the new techniques to improve our patient care. I am bilingual in English and Spanish. I am proud to assist with the work Dr. Mitchell performs and feel he is the best. One of my favorite things about working in the orthodontic field is seeing patients smile when they get their braces off.
I am married with three children. When away from the office, I enjoy watching my son play sports and going to the malls in Orange County with my two daughters and my mom. I also enjoy spending time with my husband.
Rosemary – Registered Dental Assistant
I have been an RDA for 30years. I have worked off and on during that time. I am in my fourth year working for Dr. Mitchell where I enjoy all aspects of his practice and beautiful smiles are made. I especially love the relationship I am able to develop with patients and their families over the course of their treatment.
I have 3 grown sons who have finished college. My husband and I enjoy traveling as much as possible. I play competitive tennis enjoy cake decorating , reading, gardening, wine tasting and more than anything spending time with my family
Jill – Insurance & Billing
I have been in the dental field since 1983. For the first 10years of my career I worked for a general dentist and have been in orthodontics ever since. I love seeing the changes in our patients from the time they get there braces on to the day they are removed. Seeing how happy the patients are with their beautiful smile that will last a lifetime is truly rewarding
In my spare time, I enjoy baking, going to the beach and playing cards with my girlfriends. I also enjoy spending time with my 2 grown boys.
I started working for Dr. Mitchell in Jan 2017. I love my coworkers and care and concern that Dr. Mitchell has for all of his patients
Rikki – Scheduling Coordinator
My name is Rikki Menz and I am a native Californian. I have been an RDA for 28 years and have treasured every minute of it! My emphasis has been in cosmetic dentistry and I have loved helping people feel comfortable at the dentist as well as helping them to look their best. I have lived all over the USA, up and down the East coast and 16 years in the Midwest, until finally making it back home to SoCal after 30 years. I graduated college from the Medical University of South Carolina with an emphasis in dentistry. I have a passion for art and sculpting which is why I also have a Dental Lab Tech diploma. But my love is with the public and it has been my honor to help people get over their fear of the dentist!
I volunteer regularly in support of our Wounded American veterans with the WAVES project, which helps veterans overcome their combat injuries and illnesses through the soothing effects of water and SCUBA diving. I feel that I just can’t give enough to the men and women who put their lives on the line for the freedom for America.
I can’t say enough good things about how Dr. Mitchell and his staff have made me feel like family. We work together like a well-oiled machine and Dr. Mitchell is one of the most honest dentists I have come across in my career. He treats all of his patients as if they were his brothers, sisters, children or grandchildren. It is a pleasure to be a part of this team!
