Rebeca- Dental Assistant

Hi my name is Rebeca. I am a dental assistant here at dentistry by design. I have been working with Dr. Maria Tapia for the past 7 yrs. I enjoy working alongside Dr. Tapia in satisfying our patients with their dental needs and giving them a healthy smile.


Stacey Meepos, RDH

Stacey has worked in the dental field for over 18 years. She has always enjoyed serving others and is extremely passionate about dentistry. Early on in her career she worked with a Maxio Facial Prosthodontist as a registered dental assistant. She specialized in working with cancer patients with complex dental needs. 

Stacey moved from San Luis Obispo to further her career in dentistry. She graduated from Hygiene school in 2008. Stacey loves being a dental hygienist, especially motivating patients to achieve a healthy smile. Stacey balances her satisfying career with a husband and two-year-old son at home. 

She is currently taking courses to get a degree in public health. Stacey’s long-term goal is to open a nonprofit dental clinic for underserved populations. 


Judy Zweig, RDH

My name is Judy Zweig.  I was born and raised in the Brentwood, Pacific Palisades neighborhood and actually still live here! I have loved practicing dental hygiene, having graduated over 30 years ago from USC.  My favorite part about my career is developing relationships with my patients and helping them achieve a high level of dental health.

When I am not working I cherish the time I spend with my husband and two daughters.  I love to cook and hike in the Santa Monica Mountains.
