Position: Dental Assistant (DA)
Mariline was born and raised in Ventura, California, and speaks fluent Spanish. Her interest in the dental field began with her own personal experience with orthodontic treatment. In 2007, while attending high school, she enrolled herself in the Regional Occupation Program, specializing in the overview study of health careers. Mariline received her dental assisting certifications through the Career Care Institute vocational college.
While attending each of these programs, Mariline was given opportunities through internships to expand her education, obtain hands on training, and develop her passion to help people achieve good oral health. Mariline first experienced our office as a patient and her shared interest in dentistry with our hygienist Diana eventually led to her joining our team. Mariline is working on expanding her title to RDA and hopes to achieve that while working at our office.
Mariline currently attends Ventura College to continue pursuing her degrees in the dental field. In between work and school, she enjoys bucket-listing out of town, roller blading, lounging at the beach, and ending the days with movie nights with her two children.
