My name is Claudia Martinez. I was born in Colombia and raised in St. Louis,MO. After High School, I moved to Irvine, CA and completed 2 years of Hotel and Tourism administration. Single mother to an 11 year old daughter whose goal is to become a Dentist.
My career path changed by fate and great mentors that saw potential in me to achieve bigger things by sharing my passion to put a smile on everyone that crosses my path. I started working in dentistry in 2000 and have not looked back.
My heart is full with every patient I get the chance to help achieve a healthy and confident smile. The gratitude our patient have when they leave the office after a possitive experience, I measure it by the size of the big smile they give us on their way out.

My name is Karla I am the oldest of 4, I have 2 kids of my own, a 1 year old and an 18 year old.
I was working at Bakers Burgers when I decided I wanted more with my life than serving burgers. I knew I wouldn’t be good at giving injections and I knew I wanted something quick so I picked Dental Assistant. I graduated class of 2007 from Concorde Career College and was super excited when I immediately got hired by my internship. Since then I have almost done it all. I have been a pediatric dental assistant, X-ray technician, appointment coordinator, receptionist, Dental biller and tracer, insurance coordinator, general treatment coordinator, specialty coordinator, assistant office manager, and last but not least my most recent goal Dental Office Manager. My ambition has been my drive, loving and conquering every aspect of the Dental world! and my passion for dentistry and customer service has been my fuel! I aspire one day to be a regional district manager but before I get there I love the challenge of this industry that even in my 10 years experience still teaches me something new everyday and the satisfaction that I carry in my heart every time I can make my patients smile.
