Leslie, Office Manager
I joined Michelsen Dental in May 2020, and I have thoroughly enjoyed helping our fantastic team, providing great customer service, and seeing patients regain their confidence ever since! So far, I have had the opportunity to serve our patients as a treatment coordinator to the financial and claims department. Now, I oversee office operations. I have my BS in Business and Communications, am currently an AADOM member, and have two decades of experience in the world of dentistry. My goal is to incorporate the wealth of knowledge and patient-centered service that I have acquired to equip our team to best serve each of our patients.
Outside the office, I enjoy spending time with my two amazing daughters, my fiancé, and my stepdaughter. I also love visiting national parks and would love to travel to all 50 states one day. Here’s an interesting fact about me: I create and sell spiritual candles on my Etsy shop. Helping people heal spiritually is another passion of mine!
Liz, Insurance/Treatment Coordinator
Hi, my name is Hindeliza, but you can call me Liz, Lizzy, or Mama Bear. I studied at UEI and have since attended numerous trainings with Front Office Rocks and the Scheduling Institute. I have been in the dental field for nearly a decade and joined Michelsen Dental in June of 2020. Now, I am the go-to person for educating you on the treatment that is needed, verifying and maximizing your benefits, and making your dental care as affordable as possible. I genuinely love having the opportunity each day to take care of our patients!
My husband and I have four amazing children and one granddaughter. I am a diehard football fan (go Raiders!), and I love crafting and painting in my free time. Here’s an interesting fact about me: I am into doing garden miniatures.
Christina, Registered Dental Hygienist
I am a California native (my hometown is Indio!). I attended both College of the Desert and Concorde and currently have more than 14 years of experience in the dental field under my belt. All these years later, I am just as passionate and enthusiastic about educating patients on the importance of good oral hygiene. It’s my favorite part of my job!
In my spare time, I love hanging out with my loved ones. I also enjoy camping, fishing, and just about anything that lets me enjoy the great outdoors! Here’s an interesting fact about me: I am scared of heights.
NADIA, DENTAL ASSISTANT
Although I am a relatively new member of the Michelsen Dental team, I have over six years of experience in the world of dentistry! I completed my studies at UEI College and have earned my certification in everything from Coronal Polish to CPR. For me, the best thing about my job is getting to interact with each patient, learning about them, and helping them on their journey to a happy, healthy smile.
Outside the office, I love spending time with my siblings. I also enjoy going off-roading and working on cars. Here’s an interesting fact about me: I am always open to learning new things!
