Rebeca- Dental Assistant

Hi, my name is Rebeca. I started my dental career as a dental assistant here at Dentistry by Design. Throughout the years of working alongside Dr. Tapia, I saw the amazing things our dentists were doing and that inspired me to continue to expand my skills. I have now been working at Dentistry by Design for the past 13 years and I currently work as the office coordinator. My passion, commitment, and the relationships I have created with my patients continues to fulfill my experience working here at Dentistry by Design, and ensures that every patient I assist leaves with a happy and healthy smile, and a great experience.
