She is an incredibly funny person and a down-to-earth personality.

Kalin Jones, DA
Front Office Assistant/Expediter
Kalin is also that behind-the-scenes gem who helps get all of those "impossible" and "there's not enough time in the day" things done. Her responsibilities include Insurance Eligibility, Claim Payout Verification, patient data gathering, marketing, and data analysis. On a very busy day, you'll find her helping the dental assistants break down a room. She joined our practice in October of 2018 as Dr. Reyes' personal assistant and has since made a place for herself among the staff as the funny and joyful one. Kalin's past work experience focuses in childcare, telemarketing, and customer service but her heart is set on one day running her own business. She is presently attending CGCC as she works on her Business Degree. Our hope is that while she is with us, she will not only learn what it entails to be a woman in business, but will also enhance our own experience and knowledge with her skills and presence.
In her spare time, Kalin enjoys rollerskating, trying new foods, and time with her family.

Vanessa Luna, DA
Vanessa joined our team in September of 2019 as an Intern from the American Institute of Dental Assisting. She was hired 3 weeks later and has since then acted as Dr. Reyes' main assistant during almost all restorative procedures. Vanessa is quiet and very sweet and seen as a little sister who has been taken under the wings of everyone in this practice. As a result, she is affectionately called "Little One" by Dr. Reyes. Although a dental assistant for a very short time, Vanessa has impressed Dr. Reyes with her ability to adapt and learn quickly. Having Vanessa's strength on the team has allowed our Lead Assistant to manage the difficult duties that it entails. It's this cooperative nature that has allowed the team to grow in strength and consistency.
During her free time, Vanessa likes to dance, listen to music, hang out with friends and country line dance!
