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 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

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 & Hygiene 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. 


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.


Dental Hygienist

I’m Emily and I’m incredibly grateful to serve as a Registered Dental Hygienist since 2015 and provide passionate care for members of our community with Dr. Minutello and his associates. I personally strive to connect with each of our patients and I work diligently to help others understand the connection between oral health, systemic health and general well- being. Since many of my patients would admit the dental office may not be their absolute favorite place to visit, I pride myself in ensuring you are comfortable, well cared for and valued. I recently returned to school and obtained a Masters in Education degree to teach dental hygiene in the future. Having grown up in Corona, I love seeing familiar faces from the community and spending my free time camping with my son. I hope to travel to at least another twenty countries in this next decade! 


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.
