Val- Office Manager
Welcome to our office! As the Office Manager, I will be working very closely with you, the doctors and staff to ensure that you are absolutely satisfied with your visit.
I graduated from the University of CA, Berkeley, with a degree in Nutrition and Food Science with an emphasis in Clinical Dietetics. After dedicating many years working with patients, I redirected my energy, went back to college and received my MBA in Healthcare Administration.
Traveling throughout the United States, I worked as an Account Executive and Lead Trainer for the State of CA, Delta Dental, Mobil Oil and multiple law firms before I decided to devote my attention to raising my two children and staying closer to home.
I’m a big sports fan of the Golden State Warriors and Pac-12 sports and even have two cats named Steph and Curry.
Laura- Registered Dental Hygienist
With a background in advertising, marketing, and public relations, I began my career as a Registered Dental Hygienist in 1995. I first came to Stokes Dental Care for a one-day temporary position as a favor for a friend. That one day evolved into working full time for twenty plus years and I continue to serve our wonderful patients under Drs. Mandi & Marc Chinna’s leadership at Pinole Family Dental.
Iesha- Registered Dental Assistant
My name is Iesha (pronounced: eye-E-sha). I graduated in 2011 with my dental assisting degree. My love for helping others pushed me to get my Registered Dental Assistant license. I love arts and crafts, summertime by the beaches. My husband and kids are my world! I am so honored to be a part of Pinole Family Dental.
Tracy - Dental Assistant
Hi, my name is Tracy and I started my career as a Dental Assistant in August 2020. Marley and Bella, my American Bully dogs, are my everything! I enjoy riding on my Peloton bike and going on hikes. Pinole Family Dental is a great office to work for and I am grateful that Drs. Mandi and Marc gave me an opportunity to work for them.
Sabrine - Registered Dental Hygienist
Born in San Francisco and "locally grown," I graduated from Pinole Valley High School. I began my dental career in the mid 90's as a Registered Dental Assistant. I enjoyed it so much that I became a Registered Dental Hygienist in 2005. I love my job!
The dental "chair" isn't always the most pleasant chair to be in, BUT, with over 25 years in the profession, I pride myself on making it the most comfortable experience possible for all my patients.
People find it amusing that I'm 100 percent Egyptian and speak the language fluently. I married my high school sweetheart. When I’m not “cleaning teeth,” I help my husband run our business. In my spare time, I enjoy time with my family, appreciate the different culinary experiences and love to travel.
Chandra - Registered Dental Hygienist
Hi, my name is Chandra, and I'm a Registered Dental Hygienist here at Pinole Family Dental. Not only am I an employee but I have been a patient here since I was 13 years of age. In fact, my entire family, including my nieces, nephew and daughter are all patients here!
Prior to becoming a Dental Hygienist, I served in the United States Navy from 2000- 2004. After completing 4 years of service, I decided to change career paths to study Hygiene at one of the most highly accredited dental hygiene schools, Diablo Valley College in Pleasant Hill, CA. I'm looking forward to meeting all patients and providing the best service possible. I will make it my personal promise to strive for excellence in your favor.
Janice - Registered Dental Hygienist
I graduated from Diablo Valley College Dental Hygiene Program in 2005. I love being a hygienist and strive to do my very best for each patient. In my spare time, I enjoy playing with my two children, trying new food and spending time with friends and family.
Jazz - Registered Dental Hygienist
I have been a dental hygienist for 15 years. A dedicated, patient-focused hygienist, I believe an ounce of prevention is a pound of cure - I diligently impart this knowledge with my patients. I am a vegetarian and I keep physically and mentally fit by walking, hiking, doing yoga and participating in meditation retreats with my husband and two children.
