Meet Our Dental Team

T.J.

Clinical Administrator

Welcome to our office! I’m T.J. and I began my dental career in 1981, as a Registered Dental Assistant and Registered Oral Surgery Assistant in an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery practice.  I enjoyed assisting for a few years and transitioned into Office Manager where I gained invaluable experience and knowledge in many aspects of the dental office. I’m thankful to be a part of our respectable dental team consisting of caring, compassionate, and professional individuals. As Clinical Administrator, I’m here to assure that you receive the utmost satisfaction in your quality of care throughout your entire experience with us.  Attention to detail is very important to me and I assure you that when you step into our office you will notice! Our objective is that each patient leaves our office with complete satisfaction with every part of their visit.  Whether we see you for a single procedure or continued care, we count it a privilege to be your periodontal and/or dental implant care provider and welcome you to our family. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my precious family, gardening, watching women's professional soccer, and traveling.

Chelsi

Treatment Coordinator

I'm Chelsi, a Registered Dental Assistant with over 16 years in the dental profession.  I acquired my degree, topping my class from the Regional Occupational Program in Orange County.  My 10 year clinical experience of working chair-side with Drs. Minutello puts me in a position that is most beneficial to serving our patient as Treatment Coordinator.  Besides assisting our patients navigate their financial responsibilities, I am equipped with answering the frequent concerns they may have about any of the procedures the doctors may recommend.  As Treatment
Coordinator I ensure that all our patients who have completed active treatment remain on a Supportive Periodontal Therapy Program whether it be at their general dentist's office or ours. 



Kim

Hygiene Coordinator

Hi, my name is Kim and I am the Hygiene Coordinator for Dr. Minutello and Associates.  I am thrilled to return to where my career in dentistry first began.  Dentistry is a passion of mine and I enjoy taking care of our patients and creating an environment where they are comfortable and enjoy coming to. My role here as Hygiene Coordinator is to ensure that our patients who have completed active periodontal treatment stay on a supportive maintenance program.  I have the privilege of scheduling your coordinated continuing care appointments, whether it’s with your general dentist’s office or ours.  Our philosophy at Dr. Minutello and Associates is to provide the highest quality of care to achieve long term, stable, oral health for our patients. We strongly believe patients who alternate their periodontal maintenance visits between their general dentist and our office have the best chance of success in managing and controlling their periodontal disease. I am so very fortunate to work with exceptional doctors and a dedicated team that enjoy coming to work every day and helping our patients  I look forward to getting to know you on your next visit.  My other interests aside from dentistry include spending time with my big blended family, traveling, and being outdoors.  


Jennifer

Registered Dental Hygienist

Hello I am Jennifer!  As one of the Registered Dental Hygienists in the office I would like to welcome you to our practice and I hope to get to meet you in the near future. After a 10 year period as a Registered Dental Assistant, I began to pursue my dream of becoming a Dental Hygienist in 2002.  I graduated from Phoenix College in AZ two years later, achieving the Dean’s List, as well as several other academic awards. It’s advantageous to be with Doctors who constantly strive to increase their knowledge and stay current in all aspects of their specialty.


Christian

Registered Dental Hygienist

Hello! My name is Christian and I am one of the Registered Dental Hygienists at the office of Drs. Minutello and Associates. I’ve always had a fascination with smiles because I sensed how easily smiles affect a person’s mood and attitude; so I pursued a career in the dental field. I really want to help people be proud of their smile. I acquired my Bachelors of Science in Dental Hygiene from West Coast University in 2013. Since then I am more passionate and proud to be a clinician, an advocate, and an educator for my patients’ quest towards that perfect smile. Just as important as it is to achieve the perfect smile, my goal is for patients to also understand what it takes to have a healthy mouth and keep it that way. I am privileged to work with an amazing team and can attest that you will receive the utmost care and commitment from the doctors, staff, and myself.
