Marah Gabriel | Financial Coordinator

I have been in the dental field for over 20 years as a registered dental assistant and scheduling coordinator. I have enjoyed working and forming relationships with patients in order to make their dental experience more comfortable and enjoyable.

Outside the dental office, I enjoy hiking, bicycling, traveling and baking. But most of all, I enjoy life everyday with family and friends.

Stacey Santo

Stacy Santo | RDH

I graduated from Foothill College of Dental Hygiene and have been in the dental field for 30+ years. What I especially love about dentistry is learning about new technology and materials that help make the dental experience comfortable and educational. I take pride in treating my patients as family members.

Happily married with two teenage boys, I spend my spare time (if any) enjoying the outdoors, reading a good book or walking my dog, Louie. Weekends are spend with family gatherings or sporting events, which are always enjoyed with good food and a lot of laughter.

I enjoy hiking, bicycling, traveling and baking. But most of all, I enjoy life everyday with family and friends.

Yuri Ibuki | RDH

I came to the US after getting my fashion and design degree in Tokyo, Japan where I spent the first 21 years of my life. Here, I was a dental technician working in a lab designing crowns for four years. I decided to go back to school to become a dental hygienist after having my first child.

I enjoy working with my patients for their better oral health by encouraging them and customizing home care that they can adapt easily into their busy lives. I also feel very fortunate to work with a very fun and professional team in this office.

My private life is always busy and can be a little chaotic sometimes with my family, including 3 kids, in the US and friends and family in Japan. However I enjoy spending time with all of them and still find personal time to cook, read, and outdoor sports.

Sheena is a skilled, efficient dentist with state of the art equipment and employs friendly front office staff and gentle-on-the-mouth hygenists. I drive 40 minutes from Saratoga to see them and it is well worth the commute.

Needed an appointment for a cracked filling and Dr. Phan was very accommodating to open her office to see me during the shelter in place. She and her staff have always been very helpful and do a great job not just for emergencies but with regular dental check ups. Thank you!
