Meet Our Dental Team


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.


Scheduling Coordinator

Hi, I'm Stacy, welcome to our office. In addition to my administrative background as Scheduling Coordinator, I am also a Certified Dental Assistant and Oral Surgery Assistant. I have enjoyed working in the dental profession for many years and continue to be committed to helping patients have the most positive experience while in our care. When you call our office, I will be the friendly voice you will hear ready to assist you, schedule an appointment, and be available to answer your questions. I especially enjoy making our patients feel welcome, comfortable, and right at home. It is a pleasure to work together with a team whose primary goal is to ensure each patient the best dental experience while receiving the highest level of care. My other passions aside from dentistry are spending time with my family, traveling, hiking, and spending time outdoors.


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. 


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.  


Periodontal Therapist/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.


Periodontal Therapist/Registered Dental Hygienist

Hello!  I am Mone, a licensed dental hygienist who graduated from Loma Linda University in 2013 with a Bachelor of Science.  Since then, it has been my goal to provide high-quality hygiene treatment in a comfortable dental setting through intervention, disease prevention, and periodontal treatment. I feel blessed to have the opportunity to work with Dr. Minutello and our team to expand my skill set as a dental hygienist.  I am passionate about helping my patients achieve a healthy smile and keeping a healthy lifestyle.  I’m also bilingual in sign language. Riverside County is one of the largest communities for the deaf in Southern California, so working in the area allows me to extend our oral health care services to our hearing disabled community. I worked on a five year graduate program and recently achieved a Master’s in Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese medicine at South Baylo University.  Striving to become more educated in healing holistically, and living a healthy lifestyle is important to me.  It's great fun to live in Lake Arrowhead, hiking with my pup Baylee, finding new organic vegan recipes to cook, and spending time with my family.


Registered Dental Assistant

Hola, I’m Judy! I would like to welcome you to our wonderful and caring office. I enjoy being part of the team and working at Drs. Minutello’s office to see our patients through their periodontal procedures in order for them to achieve a healthy and lovely smile.

Registered Dental Assistant

Hi, I'm Yadira. In the ten years that I've been in the dental field, I have discovered that the best thing about assisting is being able to see the patients' happiness after they see the final outcome of their treatment. As an assistant I am able to work chair side with the doctors and I'm readily available to help you. I can assure you that you will have a very pleasant and comfortable experience at our office .  


Dental Assistant

Hello, I am Christina, a treatment assistant of 16 years, 14 of which have been fully dedicated to the field of periodontics. Suffice it to say, I find that working in a Periodontal office is very rewarding because I witness the amazing transition your smile encounters from the beginning of treatment to the end; from disease to health. These repeated experiences motivate me to want to be part of this team in helping you achieve oral health. It brings me joy to assist and provide the best care for you, our patients. My goal is to help you feel at ease and confident during your entire treatment and my passion is in assisting our doctors to give the best care that Drs. Minutello and Associates consistently offers. I sincerely look forward to meeting you soon.
