Angelina Berlin – RDH Dental Hygienist

Angelina completed her B.S. in Dental Hygiene at Loma Linda University School of Dentistry in 2010 and is grateful to be practicing in her hometown . Angelina’s interest in dentistry arose back in high school when she worked for her childhood dentist, seeing an opportunity to be a part of healthcare in a form that is relationship and education based. Angelina is passionate about giving patients tools and education to empower them as partners in working toward optimal periodontal health. Angelina’s greatest joy in her work, however, is the people she serves. She takes great pride in providing gentle, thorough care and being attentive to each individual’s needs.

Outside of the office, Angelina can often be found traveling with her husband, Jeremy, whether it is a weekend getaway or visiting other countries. Just as in her work, Angelina has a high value for relationships and spends much of her time with family and friends.

 
 
 

Diane Garrett – RDH Dental Hygienist

Diane became passionate about dentistry as a teenager in braces. Her orthodontist, along with his genuine concern and warm humor, demonstrated that time in the chair as a patient could be gentle and kind. She was inspired to bring this same connection and style of care to her own patients as a dental hygienist.

A graduate from USC, class of 1989, she has enjoyed the challenges of the dynamic specialty of periodontics for over 20 years.

When Diane isn’t endeavoring to save teeth and promote oral heath, she enjoys downtime with her husband Chris, and daughter Emily. As a family, they enjoy road trips, and spending time in their backyard beside a koi pond with their dog. She is an avid knitter, and loves to read and ride her motorcycle.
