Cindy Staples | Registered Dental Assistant, Extended Functions
Cindy is our newest restorative provider. She has recently completed a rigorous program of study, underwent thorough training and passed intense Dental Board exams to become an Extended Function 2 Registered Dental Assistant, similar to a physician’s Nurse Practitioner or a Dental Hygienist. She brings over 10 years of advanced experience in quality dentistry and will be assisting our doctor with some restorative procedures. Cindy’s rigorous training will allow us to provide an even higher level of restorative care to our patients at Arden Dental Care. Cindy was born and raised in South Africa and enjoys running, being outdoors and spending time with her husband.
Hi my name is Lynn I’ve been in dentistry for 26 years. Dentistry has been my passion since I was a child, I became an RDA in 1992 and worked chairside for 20 years. I decided about 6 years ago to move to the front office and have been a financial coordinator ever since. I will still help out in the back when needed. I have experience working in all facets of dentistry.
Dona began her dental career over 30 years ago as a dental assistant. Her current role is that of front office manager. She is passionate about helping others and enjoys making patients feel at ease. Dona loves the beach, reading, and dining out. Her daughter is studying at Cal Poly University in San Luis Obispo.
I have been in dentistry for 20 years and love helping people and making them feel comfortable. I work side by side with Dr. Talluri and I think we make a wonderful team, producing top quality dentistry. I have a daughter at UC Santa Cruz and I’m getting used to having an empty nest! So proud of her.
I am a new Dental Hygienist. I work part-time in 2 offices and love hygiene. I have an extensive dental history in chairside assisting and hygiene. I am the proud mother of three young children and love spending my free time with my husband and family.
Shanise Rogers is our wonderful Hygiene Coordinator and has been in dentistry for 3 years. Prior to that, she worked in Banking Services and has been an integral part of our Business Team. In her free time, she studies to further her medical knowledge.
I love being a hygienist, working with Dr. Talluri and the wonderful team. I graduated from Dental Hygiene school several years ago and also teach new hygienists locally. It is so important to me that patients understand the importance of good oral hygiene and the impact on their overall health. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my husband and adorable little boy, Avery. Hope to meet you soon.
