Dental Assistant


Stephanie has been a part of our SoCal Smiles team since 2013. Starting her dental journey in 2007, she worked hard to receive her certifications and became a registered dental assistant in 2009 for the state of California. She enjoys learning about the latest dental materials and evolving with dental technology. On her time off she enjoys hikes at O’Neil Park, watching Netflix, or trying new places to eat with her husband Aaron. Stephanie and her family have been residents of Rancho Santa Margarita for more than 10 years. She loves being a part of our community and truly loves our patients. You will always see Stephanie bringing you back with a smile, making you feel at home and understanding your specific dental needs.


Dental Hygienist


After earning a Bachelor’s degree in psychology from UCI, Nicole fulfilled her lifelong dream of becoming licensed as a Registered Dental Hygienist receiving certification at Cypress College in 2015. She is committed to spreading awareness on the oral systemic link and providing the highest quality of individualized patient care. In her spare time, she enjoys reading, spending time at the beach, playing drums, and hanging out with her fiancé and Shih Tzu.


Front Office


Dorie has been a part of the SoCal Smiles team since 2016. Her interest in the dental field began when she was in high school and she then took dental courses at Coastline ROP in Costa Mesa. She started as an intern for the back office at our practice with her sister Stephanie, who is one of the dental assistants here, and then slowly found interest for the front office. She has now become one of our newest receptionists! She enjoys making the patients feel welcome and putting a smile on everyone’s face. Her bubbly personality and willingness to want to learn more things is a great attitude that we love to have in our office. She will always greet you in the front office with a big smile on her face and will never fail to make you laugh. When she has free time, she likes going to the beach, going to amusement parks and spending time with her family.
