I love helping out patients and parents, and seeing happy, smiling faces when they leave our office after a great dental visit!
I assist families with insurance matters, including billing and disputes, and have almost 15 years of experience with policies and procedures. I also handle collections, scheduling, and patient relations.
Outside of work, I love to read; the Harry Potter series is my favorite! I also like to spend time with friends, enjoy the So-Cal sun, and find new places to eat around San Diego. I like music of all kinds and enjoy watching the TV shows Supernatural and Ghost Adventures, too.
I like helping the community, patients, and parents get to know our office and all we offer!
I’m rarely in the office, spending much of my time visiting pediatricians’ offices, local schools, and medical and dental facilities. I promote the services and technologies we offer and help people learn how we serve the community. As a Registered Dental Assistant with Expanded Functions, I am able to answer questions about treatment and oral health.
Aside from dental marketing, I am a mom, fitness instructor, and baker.
I enjoy meeting all our young patients and seeing them grow up in our practice, with bright smiles and healthy teeth!
I work with parents and patients to review their treatment plan, explaining what is involved and answering their questions. I also provide insurance estimates, verify benefits, and check out patients at the end of their visits.
When I’m not working, I love watching movies and documentaries, spending time with my family, and being with my dog, Maggie.
Registered Dental Assistant
I have been in the dental field for 9 years now. I have a love and passion for working with kids and families. Working at Seaside Smiles has been a great experience for me. Dr. Scoma is truly one of a kind in this specialty. It's a bath of fresh air working closely with such a positive group of women, sharing the same passion and commitment to our patients and their families.
I've been a youth leader and volunteer for 15 years now and am currently a girls fast pitch softball coach.
I am also an animal lover. I have 7 furbabies at home so there's never a dull moment or a truly clean floor!
I like seeing and chatting with all the kids throughout the day: they’re always surprising us with what they decide to talk about!
Working in the front office, I greet and check in patients, get insurance breakdowns, and work with parents to future visits at convenient times.
I was born and raised in San Diego. I love shopping and going to the beach, and I hang out with my amazing family and friends every chance I get!
Orthodontic Office Manager/Treatment Coordinator
I started as an assistant in general dentistry in 2004 before finding my passion in orthodontics. I worked as an orthodontic assistant and clinical supervisor for 12 years and joined Seaside in 2019.
I love watching the process and transition of beginning treatment to the final beautiful smile and the joy on our patients’ faces. I especially enjoy watching the Phase I patients grow within the practice, becoming like family.
I live with my husband, 13-year-old daughter, and two-year-old son, as well as a new bullmastiff puppy named Molly! We love going for little road trips around San Diego and spending time in the pool.
I work closely with the doctors and office manager to provide an exceptional patient experience at Seaside and a positive, healthy work environment for our team. I appreciate that parents trust us to take care of their children and know that we help them have a positive outlook for future dental visits. It’s also great to work with a fantastic, positive team!
I am a San Diegan, born and raised. My husband Tim and I have three children, Logen, Halo, and Grady, along with our dogs Tucker and Daisy. I have always had a love for the ocean—the smell, sound, and feel! We love food and trying new restaurants around town, skateboarding at the beach, and watching the kids at the basketball court.
I graduated from UEI of San Marcos in 2018 and joined Seaside in 2019. My favorite part of my job is cleaning patients’ teeth and informing them about their oral health. It’s a pleasure to get to know them and I love following their progress. Seeing their finished smile is always great!
I enjoy working with our doctors because they are so encouraging in my professional development. My team members are incredible people, always willing to pitch in and help, and have become some of my dearest friends.
When I’m not at work, I enjoy playing soccer, hiking, and going to the gym.
Working in orthodontics is such a rewarding experience. Not only do I get to be a part of creating beautiful smiles, but I am also surrounded by an amazing team! We all genuinely care for each of our patients and do our best to create outstanding results. I love how we work together to help patients and each other.
I was born and raised in north Idaho. I have been living in San Diego for a year and half now. I have been married to my wonderful husband for four years and we have one beautiful daughter who just turned two, as well as a five-year-old lab. We love the sunny beautiful weather here and enjoy going go to the beaches, walks and hikes, and exploring the city together.
