Jane/ RDA

 I graduated from Loma Vista Center in 1992 and have been Dr. Steele's Registered Dental Assistant for 18 years. I enjoy helping our anxious patients to relax and feel more comfortable. Seeing the smile on their faces is especially rewarding when they've completed their treatment. During my free time, my interests include kayaking, geocaching and spending time with my grandchildren.







Dianne/ Dental Hygienist

 I graduated from Diablo Valley College with an Associate of Science degree in Dental Hygiene.  I’ve been a Registered Dental Hygienist for over 20 years & have worked with Dr. Steele for over 10 years.  Helping people to achieve optimal oral health brings great satisfaction to me.  Outside of the office, I enjoy attending my children’s numerous sports activities as well as traveling with my family.







Paulette/Front Desk, RDA

 I began my dental career as a Registered Dental Assistant, graduating from the Loma Vista Center. I’ve worked at the front desk for the last 8 years, as well as helping out periodically in the back office.  I enjoy providing quality service to our patients & educating them about their oral health. In my spare time, I enjoy cooking, reading, gardening & spoiling my Maltese, Annabelle.






Gail – Office Manager/Treatment Coordinator

 I entered dentistry as a second career.  After working as a Paralegal and Office Manager in several law firms for many years, I decided to explore a new career.  I found my place in the front office working for Dr. Steele where I have been for the last 13 years.  I love working with patients and helping them get the dental care they need.  Our patients are very special to me.  I have known them for so long that they are like family to me.  When I am not in the office, I enjoy traveling with my husband and photography.







Karlene/ Dental Hygienist

 I was a dental assistant for Dr. Steele for 2 years and decided to further my career by becoming a Registered Dental Hygienist. I received my degree in Dental Hygiene from Chabot College.   I take great pride in providing optimum care to all of my patients.  I believe everyone should want to show off their smile.
