Meet Our Office Manager - Michelle


Office Manager - Michelle
MICHELLE
OFFICE MANAGER

Michelle is a pretty laid back native Californian, truly enjoying making patients feel comfortable and connecting with people from all walks of life. She is a perfect fit at NOA Dental because she is passionate about great communication and building trust with our family of patients.

Michelle started her career in the dentistry field 33 years ago when she joined the Navy. Starting in the back office as an assistant/hygienist, she progressively made her way through various positions in the front office and then onto an office manager which she greatly enjoys being. She will assist you with the non-dental procedure part of your visit, and, on occasion, may also assist with your treatment.

Outside of the practice she enjoys her time hanging out with her village of children (She’s a mother of three and a grandmother of eight; She says that’s unbelievable to say sometimes. LOL). She takes great pleasure in working out, traveling, and eating! Being a family of foodies, a favorite pastime is to experience restaurants in the Los Angeles area and beyond.
