Gloria, Practice Administrator
I graduated from Yale with a B.S. in Psychobiology, and then attended UC Hastings College of Law. Upon graduating Magna Cum Laude from the law school, I practiced law for 6 years at the prestigious law firm of Morrison & Foerster, San Francisco office. During my tenure at the law firm, however, I discovered that my passion was not in law, and I decided to change my career about 10 years ago to become the Practice Administrator for this Practice. Over the years, I have grown with the Practice and discovered that I am truly passionate about this Practice and the profession of dentistry. I view my job as ensuring that this Practice continues to deliver outstanding, personalized, and comfortable care to our patients via utmost attention to detail. My goal is to build lasting and rewarding relationships with our patients and other team members to ensure that this Practice is the best there is. As the creative force behind the Practice, I love to introduce and challenge my team members with new and better techniques and ideas and to help my team members grow to achieve and exceed their potentials and goals. But, most of all, I love talking to patients whose lives have been transformed in small and large ways because of our ability to deliver outstanding, state-of-the-art dentistry and service. I am happily married with 2 children; my hobbies include reading, traveling, crafts, and piano.
Delia, Office Manager
I have been in the dental field since 1993 and I joined Dr. Jang's team in 2001. Being in the dental profession has brought a great deal of fulfillment especially in being able to offer our patients many financial options to meet their dental goals and transform their smiles. Three years ago, Dr. Jang transformed my smile by creating a beautiful eight set veneer case for me. I feel fortunate to work with a team of doctors that is 100% committed to patient care. As a result, I make sure to maintain my knowledge in this field relevant and up to date by attending several continuing education courses every year. In the last few years I have attended courses with the California Dental Association (CDA), the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD) and the Spear Institute in Scottsdale, Arizona. My commitment to patient care inspires me to pursue education in this evolving field in order to offer our patients a variety of choices for their dental treatment. I am a busy mother of three children and have been happily married for thirteen years. In my spare time, I love to cook and some of my specialties include: the rosemary roasted chicken with red potatoes, cilantro rice and asparagus, crab/oyster stuffed mushrooms, and flan or peach cobbler.
I joined the team in January 2006. I graduated from the Dental Hygiene Program at Diablo Valley College in 1988. I have been in the dental field since I was 16 and am still enthusiastic about dentistry. I also find all the high-tech touches in our office fascinating. I am a mother to two busy teenagers. I am also a devoted San Francisco Giants fan and I love taking trips to Disneyland.
Jasmine has worked in the dental field since 2010. She graduated from the Diablo Valley College Dental Hygiene Program in 2015. She also holds a Bachelor’s in Health Science from CSUEB, c/o 2013. She is a member of the CDHA since 2014. She and her husband have 2 active boys. She loves food and collecting gemstone crystals and minerals.
I graduated with my dental assisting degree from Contra Costa College. I started here as an intern and worked my way up to be a team member. I have now been here for 5 years and love working with my team. I enjoy being part of this team and being able to grow in this field and expand my knowledge through continuing education. I have attended continuing education courses in San Diego, Atlanta, and Scottsdale and am looking forward to more. I am passionate about what I do and enjoy being able to best serve our patients. I love dancing and spending time with my family. I also enjoy the outdoors and anything that sparks my interest and I am determined to live my life to the fullest!
Graduating from Bryman College, I began working at Dr. Jang’s as an extern. Now, as a full-fledged registered dental assistant for 5 years, my dedication to the dental field continues to grow. I first fell in love with dentistry because of the immediate and sincere interaction with patients, along with the relationship that cultivates throughout. But ultimately, the field of dentistry fascinates me as it provides daily opportunities to mature and develop as a character; it bestows challenges for me and for this office as a team. Working here at Dr. Jang’s has certainly been a perfect growing environment, as it will, no doubt, assist me with my future aspirations. I am currently taking courses to fulfill the prerequisites that are required for me to become a dental hygienist. On my spare time, I enjoy cooking, hanging out with friends, working out, and spending time with my dog.
Jennifer, RdaEF 2
I have been in the dental field for 13 years. To increase my knowledge and skills as a dental assistant I attended UCSF in 2001 where I received my certificate as a RDAEF 2. To keep up with the latest skills and technology, there are many courses that I have participated to continue my knowledge and thirst for dentistry. I love my job and what I do because I get to help patients achieve their goals in obtaining a better and a healthier smile. In my spare time when I'm not at work, I enjoy spending time with my 2 children and as well with friends and family.
