Our entire staff is highly trained, compassionate and eager to care for you.
There is an energy here that is so caring you can feel the connection right away, and there are bonds that patients make with our team that make them feel grounded and comfortable. In fact, patients comment that they have never experienced a dental office that genuinely cares about their well-being, and provides the level of service that we do. They are amazed that we remember personal things about them, call them by name, smile, and truly have a desire to do the best we can for them. Our doctors are gentle and caring toward our patients, and take the time to discuss all treatment options in a sincere and professional manner. Helping our patients lead a healthy life through a nurturing family environment is why we love coming to work everyday. Please take the time to experience our office; we promise that you won’t be disappointed!
Jovonder “Jovi” Warfield – Front Office Coordinator (South San Francisco)
“Jovi is such a wonderful addition to our team!”, said Dr. Vaksman. She loves what she does, and it shows. Our patients get timely and knowledgeable information, and all with a smile.
Kerri Hendricksen, RDH – Dental Hygienist (San Francisco)
Kerri is originally from Minnesota, but our staff and patients couldn’t be happier that she’s decided to settle in San Francisco. “I love what I do, and enjoy the fun atmosphere and the great people here. Our patients are the best, especially because they value the services and education we provide.”
Mina de Leon, RDH – Dental Hygienist (San Francisco)
Mina is an amazingly thorough and thoughtful hygienist. Rather than read about it here, why not chat it up with Mina and learn about her – she’s super friendly and would love to tell you all about herself – more importantly, she’d love to learn about you!
Reynita Ramos, RDH – Dental Hygienist (South San Francisco)
Reynita is one of the greatest additions to our growing family of staff. She works in our South San Francisco dental office and our patients couldn’t be happier.
Bernadette Lim, RDA – Lead Dental Assistant
“We provide constant empathy, support and communication to our patients and team members. Our patients notice this. Although many patients were never aware of what was going on in their mouths, we always clearly explain why a treatment is necessary. We often hear, “I’ve never had anyone explain that to me before!” and, as a result, we develop trust with our patients. The level and quality of dental care we provide and the communication we offer is outstanding. If we didn’t provide these things, I wouldn’t be here! The best thing I bring to our patients is listening to them. Our team is like a family. My core values can be lived out when I’m at work and that’s vital for me.” Bernadette has over 20 years of experience. She has three children, with whom she loves to spend time. Aside from time with family and friends, she also enjoys cozying up with a good book. Her calm and caring demeanor makes a big difference to everyone here.
Destiney Sharman – Scheduling Coordinator
“We go out of our way to anticipate our patients’ needs even before they realize them. It’s the little things that make a great visit and we want them to have a perfect one. What I love about our practice is that everyone goes above and beyond to treat our patients well. This makes our work more fun.”
Leah Knight – Practice & Financial Coordinator
“I am fortunate to be part of a patient-centered practice such as Vaksman Dental Group which provides excellent customer care with superior quality dentistry. This team is genuinely caring, supportive, and committed to our patients.”
Leah has many years of experience in the administrative aspects of a dental practice, and she looks forward to meeting new patients and catching up with existing ones.
