Meet the seven wonderful ladies hand-picked by Dr. Hakimi to meet and exceed your needs—no matter how challenging.
Being a Registered Dental Assistant, I have vast knowledge of the procedures that we do in the office and I am able to understand patients needs and wants. I love connecting with new people and making them feel at ease. When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my son, adventuring to new places, and trying new restaurants.
In January 2018 I joined Dr. Hakimi’s amazing team and I am loving every minute of it. I have 11 years combined experience in the dental and insurance field. In 2006 I graduated dental assisting school and started my career in the dental field by working in the back office as a Dental Assistant. In 2007 I expanded my career by working for 2 of the largest dental & medical insurance companies in the U.S., By doing so, I have firsthand knowledge and insight to help our patients utilize their insurance benefits to the maximum! When I’m not with my work family, I am spending time with my husband, 2 kids and our black lab, Maggie Mae enjoying life and exploring the outdoors and escaping to the beach any chance we get.
25 years in the dental field
I had the pleasure of joining Dr. Hakimi’s staff fresh out of dental hygiene school. The experience I have gained under her guidance is tremendous. I pride myself on being clinically highly effective, yet gentle. I very much enjoy my job, especially making changes in our patient’s health. When not at work, I am the busy mom of 3 children and am most often found on the soccer field.
12 years of experience in the dental field
I have worked with periodontist in Auburn, CA, Dr. Hakimi for seven exciting years. The most satisfying aspect of working in Dr. Hakimi’s periodontal office is seeing patients regain lost self-confidence. Whether it is from learning how to properly care for their teeth, cosmetic gum surgery, or even dental implants to rebuild an entire new smile, it is always an amazing journey I get to share with patients. Outside of the office I love spending time with my family and shopping.
7 years dental experience
As a dedicated member of Dr. Hakimi’s team, I look forward to meeting each patient that comes through the door and making them feel at home. I believe in the services that we provide to keep your smile healthy. Not only is your oral health important to us, but I feel it is equally important that you leave here educated on how to care for your smile after your treatment is completed. Outside of the office, I enjoy spending time with my boyfriend and doing crossfit.
I was a Professional NBA Dancer for the Sacramento Kings during the 2014-2017 seasons. I am now pursuing my passion in the dental field. I've wanted to work in this field since I was a little girl going to my general dentist. Dr. Hakimi motivates me every day with positive and knowledgeable advice. I wish to further pursue my dental education in applying to a dental hygiene program.
My name is Amanda Ellis and I have been a RDA for 15 years. I am very excited to be a member of Dr. Hakimi’s team. I am fascinated with the ever changing world of dentistry and enjoy learning new techniques and advanced technologies that are constantly evolving in the dental world. When I am away from the office I enjoy spending time outdoors with my family and doing home improvements.
‘‘Dr. Hakimi and staff provided me with the best medical experience I have ever received. The foundation of the experience is based on the knowledge and abilities of the doctor. It is very clear that the entire process and team have been thoroughly trained and have systems set up to provide an outstanding experience to their patients.‘‘
