Meet Our Team
Carmina ‘Grecia’ Faustino, Office Manager
Charming and conciliatory, Grecia is known to everyone as energetic, courageous, and fiercely determined. She likes to make others happy and always tries to maintain a harmonious relationship with those around her. She joined the team almost 6 years ago with her enormous experience in the dental front office and she has challenged herself in handling a variety of our patients. The second of eight children, Grecia is tightly woven to her family, always seeking their welfare. A well-traveled lady both in and out of the country, Grecia enjoys dancing and Spanish movies in particular. No one in the office speaks Spanish as fluent as she, a skill that easily adds to her resume. She is now happily married to Joe Faustino for 2 años. She is currently pursuing classes in bookkeeping, tax preparation, and notary public.
Grecia loves the relationships she builds up with our patients, a quality that endears her to us and our patients alike. Aside from being CPR certified, she has benefited from countless seminars and workshops that she and the team have participated in. She recently was certified by the Scheduling Institute as a “5 Star” Member. This exposure has greatly broadened her scope as the Office Manager and has equally allowed her to soar and be the kind of dedicated worker she always aspires to be.
Lisa Ramirez, Dental Assistant
Lisa is a native of Fresno but also lived in the Bay Area for many years. She is quite vocal about her faith and occasionally hums and sings along with the music in the office with great confidence. Lisa is a valuable addition to our team. She possesses a caring and selfless attitude toward our patients.
A family oriented lady, she boasts about her two grown-up sons and her loving husband as well, who has three children and a grand-daughter that she treats as her own. Lisa loves to be around beautiful places and people. She also enjoys cooking and baking new recipes unknown to her. A very appreciative person, Lisa has been a Dental Assistant for several years now and is grateful to God for the path she has taken.
Orvelin Terrones, Dental Assistant
Orvelin takes pride in being the dinosaur in this office, for he has been here the longest, but calling him Jr likely makes him the youngest amongst the team, a reality no one can refute.
Jr professionally grew up with us, from the skills he learned from dental assisting school to the honed ability in assisting the doctor for 7 years now. An early riser, Jr loves to stay active and healthy. He heads out to the gym almost daily after work, believing that an active person will live longer.
Soon to be a father, Jr periodically checks inventory supplies and has learned how to haggle with companies so we can get the best deals in purchasing dental supplies. He is a reserved and quiet person but takes the time to answer patients’ inquiries sincerely and with confidence.
Suzan Adamson, Registered Dental Assistant
Getting to know our patients and listening to their dental needs and concerns are some of the natural skills this lady possesses. Born and raised in the Bay Area, she enjoys sharing her knowledge in the dental field to address patients’ concerns and questions. Honed and tested by the length of time and vast experience in the dental field, Suzan is just one of the friendly faces you’ll meet in all areas of our office. A Registered Dental Assistant, CPR Certified, and “5 Star” Scheduling Institute Certified are a few of the many things she has on her resume.
Suzan has a sweet personality and kindness that endears her to our patients. She always welcomes the opportunity to assist patients with their needs and concerns. She also enjoys cooking, gardening, and live music. Suzan raised four wonderful children. She values her faith, friends, and family, and holds the belief that the people we serve give importance to life.
