Brendan

Marketing, Appointments, and Scheduling Assistant

I enjoy working with our patients, getting to know them and learning about their interests. It’s amazing to watch each patient grow and become more confident. I take patient photos and X-rays and schedule their visits. I also help spread the word about our practice through video, photos, and contests. And I assist with sterilization, too.

Dr. Claro is my Mom. My first work permit was when I was 12 and I started to help with sterilizing. In addition to working here, I’m also a stand-up comedian. You can hear me saying inappropriate and silly things at shows all over Orange County.


Cheryl

Registered Dental Assistant, Orthodontic and Pediatric Dental Assistant

I love bonding with our patients and watching their personalities change during treatment. By the time we’re finished with their new smile, they’re a whole new person! I’m happy for their confidence. I take care of patients, helping them have a positive, enjoyable visit. I work chairside, supporting the patient while helping the doctor.

I’m married to Rich, a wonderful man. We have five kids and six grandkids, along with a Jack Russell terrier, Nicky. I enjoy church activities and working on our home.


Janet

New Patient Coordinator and Appointment Manager

I enjoy talking with and getting to know our patients. I oversee their first visit, making sure it’s a positive experience from the minute they arrive. I also answer the phone, schedule appointments, and am the patient concierge. I handle insurance billing and follow up and assist with our marketing, too. I’m busy, but never too busy for a quick chat to hear the latest news!

When not in the office, I enjoy time with my two children and seven grandchildren. I like reading, crafts, and baking. I love football – Go USC (sorry Dr. Claro!) and Steelers!


Jessica

Marketing, Public Relations, and Social Media Coordinator

I’m a people-person and I love building relationships with our patients and their families! We truly have the best patients and I love keeping them engaged with their care. I handle marketing for the office and doctors. I also coordinate our public relations. Best of all, I manage our social media accounts and make our office a fun environment that patients love visiting.

My wonderful husband Marc and I have been married for more than five years. We have two sons, Max and Luc, who keep us busy when not at work.


Nancy

Office Manager

I love helping patients and parents throughout their time in our care. It’s fun to watch children grow up with healthy, wonderful smiles and a positive feeling about dental care. I handle patient financials, including insurance billing. I also present treatment plans and explain everything involved. I handle staff scheduling and office management, too.

I’ve been married for almost 15 years and have three kids: daughter Jocelyn and sons Stevie and Nathan. I keep busy with the kids’ Girl Scouts and soccer. Free time often involves Disneyland!
