Vanessa – Front Office Receptionist
Hello, my name is Vanessa Payne. As of October 2016, I have joined Dr. Steven J. Brazis’s team as the practice’s front office receptionist. I really look forward to working with all of Dr. Steven J. Brazis’s patients; everyone I have met and worked with thus far has made me feel most welcome in this office and very much a part of a new family. I love working and volunteering in the healthcare community of Sacramento. I am a northern California girl, born and raised. I love the outdoors and spending as much time with my husband and kids as possible. Traveling, hiking, camping, art, photography, and my family are all passions of mine. I have traveled and hiked most of California and look forward to my future adventures!
Krista – Registered Dental Assistant
I am a registered dental assistant (RDA), and I have been with the practice since 1980. I enjoy my job very much, especially the friendships I have established with patients and their families. I try to make people feel comfortable when they come in and help them get any questions they have answered by the doctor. My goal is to give our patients the best service possible.
Ellen – Registered Dental Hygienist
I have been a registered dental hygienist for 22 years, 17 of those with this practice. I have enjoyed being a part of our patients’ dental health care. I also enjoy catching up with my patients’ lives when they come in and talk about their experiences. We have become very close friends. I have watched their children grow up into young adults, some with children of their own now a part of our practice.
