Andrea

Marketing Director/Front Office Assistant

Andrea

I love making my patients happy! I chose a great field to be in, and couldn’t see myself doing anything different with any other office. I assist in back with patients as needed, schedule appointments, and take care of our office’s internal and external marketing. I am a “dental geek”. I find anything about teeth fascinating. I love helping patients to have a great experience, and developing solid relationships with them. We have an awesome team and we feel like a big family. We have fun and laugh a lot while still being professional. We have all grown together through the years.

At home, I have two beautiful children, Amani and Anthony. In my spare time, I enjoy being with my family and reading.

 

Elissa

Office Manager

Elissa

My position here at Dr. Hansen’s is one of growth and learning.I am a part of a caring team that is willing to go the extra mile.  We strive to make each patient experience with our practice a positive one. I began my career in 1992 as a registered dental assistant, after which I transitioned to front desk management. I get great satisfaction in a job well done, from daily duties to excellent patient care.  We really do baby our patients.  Our office feels like you’re coming home to visit family.  

I have been married for 16 years and we have two middle-school-aged daughters. As a family, we enjoy hiking and tent camping at the beach and in the mountains. The girls and I are very involved with the Girl Scouts.  I lead one troop and co-lead the other. Community service is a big part of our family, from Church organized events, yearly book drives, involvement with non-profit agencies, and a recent trip to Mexico to help at an orphanage.

My goal is to take great care of patients. It is a privilege getting to know a large variety of people and helping them have healthier lives where they can smile freely. Dr. Hansen is ethical, generous, and honest. She is a continual learner who strives to care for people to the best of her ability. She sets the standard of care in her office very high and our team works hard to maintain it. It is fun to work in a challenging environment with others striving to do their best as well.

I have an amazing husband, of 17 years, and a son and a daughter. I love being a mom and wife! I enjoy Pilates, reading, family movie and game nights, playing laser tag with my son, and getting creative pedicures with my daughter.

Marketing Assistant

As Dr. Hansen’s daughter, I guess you could say I’ve been a part of this practice for my entire life! I started “working” for my mom in 2002 when I was seven, hanging out on Saturdays and doing filing and whatever I was instructed to do. I was the “gofer” and even had my own business cards! Nowadays, I handle our social media and Facebook administration. I was raised to give and notice excellent customer service.  I love making our patients happy and building relationships with them.

I am a full-time student at San Diego State University with a double major in Anthropology and Hospitality. I have been playing the harp for six years and love it. I also love history, especially the War of 1812, and world mythology. 

 

Maria

Dental Assistant

Maria

I am responsible for all aspects of dental assisting, including working alongside Dr. Hansen, ordering all back-office products, sterilization, impressions, patient education, X-ray technician, cheerleader, making patients comfortable, and keeping Dr. Hansen on schedule. My favorite part is connecting with the patients and making them feel comfortable. I enjoy dentistry because I learn something new every day. My team is truly amazing. We all get along, and everyone is happy and full of laughter.

I am the mother of two wonderful sons.  I love spending time with my family and my doggie, Daisy. I also love Starbucks and shopping!

 

Sofia

Registered Dental Hygienist

Sofia

It is my job to promote a healthy mouth by educating patients.  Providing an exceptional experience and excellent care are my top priorities. Whether I’m reviewing medical conditions, educating patients about periodontal disease, tooth decay and nutrition, or cleaning patients’ teeth, I strive to provide nothing less than excellent care. Working at Dr. Hansen’s office is great because it is like my second family.  We have fun together and we all care for our patients.

I have a wonderful family and love spending time with them. I am very "crafty" and like traveling and learning about history.

 

Zoe

Insurance Coordinator/Front Office Assistant

Zoe

I am here to assist our patients with all their insurance claims, dental benefit checks, and scheduling. After working for 25 years in customer service in different fields, I can honestly say that this is the best office I have ever worked in. We are an amazing team with the same goal of providing our patients with good dental health and a beautiful smile.

I have been happily married for 41 years and have a 23-year-old son. I am a trustee at the Oceanside High School Foundation, a foundation whose goal is to support students and teachers by raising funds for scholarships and teacher grants. I also enjoy reading, researching my genealogy, and spending time with my family and dog, Pepper.
