Meet Our Team
My name is Paola Farfan, Office manager and RDA (registered dental assistant). I have been part of Sherman Oaks Dentistry since February of 2007, and ever since I have played a very crucial role in establishing good, comfortable, and lasting relations with all of our patients. I like helping our patient coordinating their dental treatment and setting their appointments. Through the years I have gained excellent management skills. I like to spend quality time with all of our patients answering questions and doubts about any dental procedure. My family is the motor of my life, I have daughter and she teaches me how to be a better person every day.
Hello my name is Crystal Terry and I am the Hygiene Coordinator here at Sherman Oaks Dentistry. Ever since I started working for Dr. Perlaza, I have felt that our office is like a family. I like working in the front office because I’m able to greet each patient. I enjoy helping existing and new patients find the appointments that best fit their schedules. I’m lucky enough to work in a field that allows me to help people on a daily basis. I have an amazing son whom I love spending all of my free time with. Whether it’s at school functions or soccer tournaments, we’re always surrounded by great friends. If we have a free weekend away from soccer and school, we enjoy spending lazy days in Malibu on the beach.
My name is Kim, I am a dental hygienist, and I truly love what I do. Not only, do I love what I do, I am passionate about educating patients on how they can improve their oral health. In my spare time I love volunteering, and spending time with my family, and when I’m not doing either of those; I am absurdly addicted to Investigative Discovery Channel.
