Meet the Team
Dr. Molato and I had been the dynamic duo since 1997. I had been her dental assistant since she was an associate dentist in 8th and Alvarado Dental where we initially worked together. I joined Dr. Molato when she established her first dental office in the US the Molato Dental in Van Nuys in 1999 and recently worked with her in Simi Hills Dental before I decided to move to Bakersfield with Dr. Molato to be a part of Laser Dental Bakersfield team. I believe in the work that Dr. Molato has been doing with her patients and I see over the years how we were able to help a lot of people in their dental needs and for me it is a very rewarding experience.
One of the reasons why I love being a dental assistant is because of the patient interaction. I have met some of the funniest, most interesting people while working at this job. Another reason why I love my job is because I get to spend more time with my best friend, my mom, Dr. Molato! I love working with the staff in all the dental offices that my mom has established. I have known them all my life because they have been with my mom for many years and I basically grew up at the dental office. When I was old enough to work, I joined the team when I was in 10th grade. I also enjoy attending dental seminars with mom wherein I get to meet very inspiring dentists which make me envision that one day I will be their colleague.
I recently graduated from Cal State Northridge with the degree in Cell and Molecular biology. I plan on following my mom's footstep in becoming a dentist, so currently I am preparing for the DAT and to get into the Dentistry program. While doing all these preparations, I will continue to pursue being a registered dental assistant and continue to work at Laser Dental Bakersfield in my free time.
