Meet the Team
Registered Dental Assistant and Office Manager
I have been a RDA for 31 years and I am passionate about helping patients have a great dental experience when they come for an appointment. I assist with treatments as well as manage the front office. I am grateful to work with a team of amazing people and love the passion Dr. Molato has for caring for her patients.
It is so wonderful to help people find a solution to fit their dental needs. I enjoy getting to know each and every patient, the stories we get to share, the laughter and best of all seeing the beautiful smiles when a patient is finished with their treatment plan.
I have been married for 35 years and we are blessed to have two beautiful girls with two wonderful sons-in-law. We like to golf, go wine tasting and enjoy entertaining our family and our friends.
Assistant Office Manager
I work in the front office making sure that the office is running smoothly while providing exceptional and friendly service to you. I assist in setting up your appointments and making reminder calls too. I have great respect for people who put value on their dental health. Meeting people like you inspires me to come to work every day. I used to have dental phobia until I experienced the Dr. Molato treatment; choosing her as my dentist made a world of difference. I learned that my dental health is essential to my overall health and well being. I want to share that experience with everyone.
My husband and I are happily married with a fur baby named Sage. We love to travel and go on long drives and nature hikes. We like to take selfie’s and jump shot pictures so having a confident smile makes it more fun. My downtime hobby would be planning the next adventure for my village I call “framily”. We are active parishioners and serve in various ministries at Our Lady of Lourdes Church in Northridge, CA . I graduated from the Universidad de Santo Tomas in the Philippines majoring in Asian Studies. I bring to the team my mortgage banking background and work experience from the health industry. I am happy and blessed to be working with the Simi Hills Team. I look forward to meeting and getting to know our patients and I’m excited to see your beautiful smiles.
Working at Simi Hills Dental has been the highlight of my professional life. I get to work with a doctor who has a passion that keeps patients coming back. I also enjoy helping the patients and making sure they feel respected and comfortable. The environment in this office is unlike other dental offices. We always keep the patients in mind, which is how we provide such quality work and environment. I love working with Dr. Molato and our team because we have become a family that shares a common goal, which is helping the patients. I especially love Dr. Molato because she has been so supportive, inside and outside of work. She really does put our patients first and she always has the patient in mind.
I have a wonderful daughter named Elizabeth, who is my pride and joy. When I am not doing the job I love, I am watching novellas, listening to music, going to the park, and cooking.
One of the reasons 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 that 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 a degree in Cell and Molecular biology. I plan on following my mom's footsteps 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 Simi Hills Dental in my free time.
As one of the newest members of the team, I work the front office setting up appointments and assisting patients during and after their visit with Dr. Molato. I enjoy interacting with our patients as many of them become friends. I graduated from the University of the East, Manila, Philippines with a BA in Accounting, and worked for a multinational corporation for 10 years as a Trust Operations Assistant. I am happy to bring my background to Simi Hills Dental. Our team is a family with the care and concern we share for each other extending to our patients.
When I am not at the office, my life revolves around my husband and our two kids. I like gardening, cooking, and baking. My family enjoys watching movies and picnics at the park.
