Jillian’s career in the dental field covers over a full decade, and there’s nothing she enjoys more about her position than seeing patients get their confidence back with newly beautiful smiles. She attended CNI Tech School for Surgical Technology and also runs a Facebook group for dental office managers where she can provide support to her peers in the dental industry – it has over four thousand members and counting!
Originally from Laguna Hills, Jillian now lives in Fallbrook and loves small-town life. She has 3 teenage sons (2 biological and 1 pseudo-adopted) and is newly engaged to her fiancé John. The last few members of the family are two dogs and a bearded dragon. When she has free time, her favorite hobbies include volunteering with Pitbull rescue and education efforts, spending lazy time at the pool, going to concerts with loved ones and playing co-ed softball on Fridays. She can also do AMAZING Halloween FX makeup – it’s her favorite holiday.
Michelle hails from Lakeport, and she attended the dental assisting program at Carrington College for her education. She is also licensed in X-rays and CPR. Her favorite part of working at Del Mar Dental Arts is getting to interact with patients and capture their “before” and “after” photos. The “before” photo is always awkward for the patient because they don’t love their smile, which is why she lives for the day when they finally get to take their “after” photo – the person is glowing and so confident then!
Michelle’s family is still in Northern California, but she moved to San Diego in 2017 to start her own life. When she’s not making patients smile, she loves going on adventures with her boyfriend Michael. They take their two cats named Rio and Cash out on hikes, go to the beach, and enjoy great food at all of the amazing restaurants San Diego has to offer. If you see a couple out and about who is walking their cats on leashes, it’s most likely them, so be sure to say hi! You can even follow Rio and Cash’s adventures at @explore.with.rio on Instagram.
Matthew has been working in the oral healthcare field for over five years so far. He attended California State University in San Marcos for his education, completing his Bachelor’s in Biochemistry. He then completed his dental assistant training through UCSD’s pre-dental program. Today, what he enjoys most about his job is being able to chat with patients and also show them their X-rays!
A San Marcos native, Matthew has an older brother and a younger sister who both work as engineers. When he isn’t busy at the dental office, he enjoys playing Scrabble, practicing digital photography, creating images in Adobe Photoshop, and bowling – even though he’s not very good at it. An interesting fact about him: he was able to see the total solar eclipse in Idaho a few years back!
Amber originally hails from Mystic, CT, and her career in dentistry spans over five years. She studied dental hygiene at Concorde Career College and is also certified in laser dentistry; she’s done quite a bit of extensive training in Invisalign as well. Today, what she enjoys most about her work is being able to share her knowledge of how dental hygiene affects the entire body (not just the mouth) with her patients, as well as how they can prevent problems and avoid extensive treatment in the future.
Amber comes from a big family that is very close-knit, including two brothers, a sister, and over 20 cousins. She and her husband have been together since freshman year of college. She also has a dog Brody who is a Corgi mix and her whole world. Outside of the dental office, she really enjoys traveling with her husband, especially to Europe and the Caribbean. She also loves exercising (especially spin classes), cheering on the New England Patriots, and visiting zoos as a big animal lover!
