Sierra – Dental Hygienist
I thoroughly enjoy working with Dr. Sun, Dr. Bennett, and the amazing team here. My career in the dental field began in 2012 as a dental assistant. Since then I have obtained a Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene degree from Northern Arizona University (2016) and Master of Public Health degree from the University of California, Los Angeles (2019). I am passionate about providing quality care and ensuring patient comfort, as well as meeting the needs of the community.
In addition to being a dental hygienist, I have the joy of being a freelance musician (bassoonist). I enjoy playing and listening to all genres of music! I also enjoy spending time with family, friends, and my loving cat and dog.
Katie – Dental Hygienist
I am excited to be an integral part of this dental office. I love being a hygienist! After finishing my hygiene training, I moved back to my native Ventura County. I enjoy my work days that are filled with amazing patients, fun coworkers and the best doctors.
I am married and enjoy traveling with my husband. My weekends are filled with sporting events, festivals, playing in the sun and savoring the moment!
Louise – Dental Hygienist
I grew up in Connecticut, where I graduated dental hygiene school in 1980. I moved to California in 1982 and no, I do not miss the snow! I have worked with Dr. Sun and Dr. Bennett for many years now, and am glad to be part of this dental team.
In my off time, I like to train and show my dogs, and sometimes those of others. I also teach show training classes, and would like eventually judge competitions at some point.
Kim – Dental Hygienist
I couldn’t be happier to be a part of this great dental team! I truly love what I do and I am so grateful to be doing a job that doesn’t feel like work! I have my degree in Dental Hygiene from West Los Angeles College, and I also have a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from California State University Of Northridge. I enjoy giving back to the community, so when I am not working I volunteer at various dental hygiene related clinics or events.
During my time off, my husband and I enjoy spending time with family & friends. We love camping by the beach or at one of our favorite places in Sequoia National Forest. We also love traveling and spending time in places we have never been before. We have been to Riviera Maya and most recently we honeymooned in the Dominican Republic! Europe will be our next destination! I love to cook and I am always trying something new in the kitchen.
Jennifer – Dental Hygienist
I have been working with Dr. Sun and Dr. Bennett since 2004. Prior to that I have been in the dental field since 1996 and have worked as a hygienist since 2002. I love working in this dental office and enjoy getting to know my patients as well.
I am married and have a handsome son who keeps me very busy. We also have a Lhasa Apso named Bear. In my free time, I enjoy spending it with my family and being outside. I enjoy baking and always appreciate a good cup of coffee.
Brittany – Dental Hygienist
I am a Simi Valley native, and oddly enough, I have known since the age of 15 that I wanted to be a dental hygienist. I graduated from the Dental Hygiene Program at Pasadena City College and I can proudly say I am passionate about my work. What I enjoy most are the conversations I get to have with new and kind people every week. I truly believe these conversations brighten up my day and hopefully my patients’ days as well. I love the demeanor and vibe of this office. I truly do not feel like I am working half of the time.
I enjoy all that the outdoors has to offer – snowboarding, mountain biking, dirt biking, rock climbing and surfing. I love spending quality time with my family and have a huge heart for all kinds of animals. I’ve also been bitten by the “travel bug.” My favorite places to visit so far have been Tulum, San Miguel De Allende and Thailand. I want to see the world, eat all the best foods and collect all sorts of nonsense souvenirs!
Janine – Dental Hygienist
I’ve enjoyed working with Dr. Sun and Dr. Bennett for the past 10 years. I began my career as a dental assistant, moved on to office management and ultimately, completed dental hygiene school. With over 25 years of hygiene experience, I recently completed a Master’s Degree in Education. When I am not here in the office, I enjoy teaching the dental hygiene students at West Los Angeles College as well as dental students at the UCLA School of Dentistry.
In my off hours, I enjoy spending time with family, friends and traveling. I also do some volunteer work at the local free clinics.
Debbie – Dental Assistant
I have been a Dental Assistant since 1988 have been working with Dr. Sun and Dr. Bennett since 1998. I received my dental training at Simi Valley Adult Education, but also have a degree in Landscaping Design from Cal State Northridge (just for fun).
My activities outside of work include going to bikram yoga, walking and training for marathons. The newest addition to my family was in 2009 when we brought home “Otto,” a Boston terrier. He is occasionally shown in the breed ring and I enjoy doing agility training with him. I also enjoy weekends away relaxing with my husband in our motor home and wine tasting in Paso Robles.

I come from a military family, and have lived all over the states, as well as other countries. I am proud to call Ventura County home. I have the most exceptional little boy who keeps me busy and always puts a smile on my face. I enjoy working out, shopping, eating, and taking my son to the beach.

I am so happy to be part of this dental team, where we put the patients first! I enjoy assisting all aspects of dentistry and look forward to helping you at your next appointment. My family is originally from Nicaragua, although I was born and raised in Southern California. I come from a large family, with five other siblings.
In my free time, I enjoy dancing, playing billiards and going on hikes with my boyfriend. I enjoy all types of food. I have also recently become a “gym-rat” going to workout daily. I am part of a group of friends that works out together, which helps to keep us all motivated!
Joanna – Dental Assistant
I love being a part of this amazing dental office and team. Assisting patients and the doctors is something I take great pride in. My goal has always been to work in the dental field. Besides assisting chair-side at this time, I am going to school to further my education to one day become a dentist or dental hygienist.
In my free time, I enjoy golfing and being outdoors. I also enjoy working out and wine tasting with my friends and family. I hope to visit more vineyards in the future and learn more about wine making.
