Vanessa – Front Office Manager
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 manager. 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!
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.
Denise – Registered Dental Hygienist
I have been in the dental field for over eight years now, I started in the dental field as a dental assistant, but I always knew that I wanted to expand into hygiene. I acquired my degree for dental Hygiene at Chabot college in Hayward California, but I knew that I would always end up back in northern California where my friends and family are. The part I most enjoy about being a dental hygienist is educating my patients and becoming a familiar face to comfort them. When I am not at work I enjoy spending quality time with my friends and family.
Shalia – Registered Dental Assistant
Hello, my name is Lia. I’ve been a dental assistant for 9 years. The best part of my career is meeting patients and listening to their life stories, then watching them leave the office with a smile. In my spare time I enjoy taking my dog on walks and hiking.
