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.


Business Assistant/Insurance Coordinator

Hi, I’m Linda.  I have been a Registered Dental Assistant for over 7 years and have worked chairside in dental surgeries for a few years.  However, I have found talent in working as a business assistant which is my current post. While my abilities encompass a wide range of business tasks, I am focused and dedicated to helping you understand how your dental insurance can be of most benefit to you and assist you through the financial process of achieving that healthy smile. What I enjoy most about being in the dental field is being part of a team that helps patients achieve their dream smile that consequently gives people more confidence in themselves.  If you have any questions regarding your insurance, please feel free to reach out to me. It is my pleasure and mission to be of assistance.  


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 Hygiene 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. 


Business Assistant/Scheduling Coordinator

Hi, I'm Stacy. In addition to my Administrative background, I am also a Certified Dental Assistant and Oral Surgery Assistant. I have been committed to the dental profession and have years of experience doing what I enjoy. I am especially interested and dedicated to helping our patients feel welcomed, 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 and receive the highest level of care.


Business Assistant

Hi, my name is Elizabeth. Welcome to our cheerful and caring periodontal office. Here at Drs. Minutello and Associates our priority is to make you feel comfortable while receiving dental treatment. I have been in the dental field for nearly twenty years; my passion for the dental profession is beyond being my job, it’s part of my life! I started as a dental assistant, and then discovered my interest and talent for billing and submitting dental insurance claims. My dental assisting experience has helped me to know and understand firsthand the treatment that we are providing, which allows me to answer any questions you may have regarding your treatment plan. I love seeing the transformation of our patients' smiles and seeing their oral conditions restored to good health.  It is our pleasure to serve you and make your dental visit your best experience!


Business Assistant/Hygiene Coordinator

Hello, my name is Kylie and I'm the Hygiene Coordinator at Drs. Minutello
and Associates. From the first day I was hired, I have been very proud to
work with such an amazing team of professionals. Being an athlete for most
of my life and throughout college, I understand the importance of how all
members of a team play an important role in achieving winning results. By
acquiring two Associates of Science degrees, I have learned how important
our overall health is. My focus now being in periodontal health, I enjoy
seeing our patients understand the value of their oral health by helping
them stay on schedule with their periodontal maintenance appointments.
Seeing the positive results which occur when patients are consistent with
their dental hygiene appointments and home care gives me the greatest
satisfaction. I look forward to working with your hygienist in achieving the
optimal periodontal health for you and seeing you at your appointments


Registered Dental Hygienist

I’m Tiffany and I would like to thank you for your interest in our office.  As one of the Registered Dental Hygienist, I would like to welcome you to a very caring office that is ready to assist you in all your periodontal needs.  I knew a career in the dental field was where I belonged as early as high school because I assisted a dentist after classes.  So I received my Bachelor’s of Science degree in Dental Hygiene from Loma Linda University in 2008.  I received student of the year, several other awards, and graduated with honors. I am honored to work here for such devoted Doctors who strive to bring the best to their patients. I am known for my gentle yet thorough hand and would love to meet you very soon.


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.


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.
