PaolaMy name is Paola, and I have been part of Sherman Oaks Dentistry since February of 2007. I have played a very crucial role in establishing good, comfortable, and lasting relations with our patients. Now, as a Dental Hygienist, I’m able to spend quality time with all of our patients, educating them about proper oral hygiene and answering questions about dental procedures. My family is the motor of my life. I have a daughter and she teaches me how to be a better person every day.CrystalMy name is Crystal and I’m Dr. Perlaza’s Office Manager. My top priorities are to ensure that every patient has a good experience with us and that my fellow employees have a safe and happy work environment. I’m very proud to be a part of this wonderful team. We truly care about our patients’ health. We know that a visit to the dentist isn’t something most people look forward to, so we strive to put our patients’ minds at ease. Above all else, we’re here to help our patients.Adrineh (Hygienist)My name is Adrineh, and I have been a practicing Dental Hygienist for over sixteen years in California. I had the privilege to join Dr. Perlaza and his professional team and am very happy to work with them. My biggest passion is being with people, knowing them and helping them to have a healthier lifestyle, which starts with a healthy mouth and teeth. Every day I learn from my patients while I teach them how to manage their oral home care and other nutritional habits. I love my job and treat my patients as my family. Yoga, meditation, music, cooking, and nature are the other passions in my life.Wendy (Hygiene Coordinator)Hello, my name is Wendy and I am the Hygiene Coordinator for Dr. Harold Perlaza. I joined the dental field back in 2009 because I wanted to help people feel confidence in their smile. I am proud to say that with Dr. Perlaza, that is exactly what we do as a team. As the Hygiene Coordinator I get to ensure that patients come in on a regular basis for their dental cleanings. As a parent I know that life is sometimes a little more hectic than we would like, that is why I do my best to work with every single patient’s schedule.Lorenz (Insurance Coordinator)Hi, I'm Lorenz. I am the Insurance Coordinator for Dr. Perlaza, and I will take care of your Dental Insurance claims and needs. While this is not my first experience with Insurance, I wanted to expand my knowledge to include Dental Insurance. I took the leap of faith entering this field since this is different from what I usually do, and I do not regret it. I am thankful to Dr. Perlaza for letting me showcase my abilities. I’m fortunate to be a part of the team, as we help each other, and we learn all the time.AdrianMy name is Adrian and I’m a Dental Hygienist.
