HI. My name is Nikki and I am a registered dental assistant at Mesa Dental. I was born in California but moved to Costa Rica at the age of 7, as a result, I am fully bi-lingual! After high school, I attended cosmetology school but then moved back to the states and graduated with honors from Northwest Career College for dental assisting. My passion for dentistry has grown since working at Mesa Dental so much that I plan to continue my education and hope to go to dental school. Some of the things I enjoy most about dentistry are caring for patients with dental fears, being part of transforming beautiful smiles that change patients lives and helping treat the elderly. When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my dogs.
Hi. My name is Natalia and I am a hygienist at Mesa Dental. I received my degree from the College of Southern Nevada Dental Hygiene program and was awarded several awards for excellence and graduated with Honors. I served as President for the local Honor Dental Hygiene Society from 2007-2009 and continue to help future dental students at UNLV understand and practice dental hygiene. I enjoy learning and staying up-to-date on all the latest research to help patients prevent and treat periodontal disease. I truly enjoy getting to know each of my patients and provide them with the best care possible. I have a strong Christian faith and enjoy going to church and spending time with my family and dog, Patrick.
