Dr. El Ghaoui would love to meet you and your family and provide you with the dental care you deserve!
You can say that Monica has dentistry in her blood, as she comes from a family of dental professionals. She began her career in 2002 as a dental assistant where she learned the ins and outs of dentistry. This is where she first met Dr. El Ghaoui as she assisted her in her first dental office. As she began to learn more about the field, she found a love for helping patients get the necessary treatment they need by explaining the ins and outs of insurance and how to keep a healthy smile no matter what. Monica has a strong attention to detail, she never forgets a face and manages to make sure every patient leaves our practice with a smile. Since joining forces with Dr. El Ghaoui in 2015, the office has benefited from her knowledge, focus and passion for the field. Outside of the office she is a wife and mother of three children who she loves dearly. She enjoys cooking, outdoor activities and family gatherings on the weekends.
Jessica is no stranger to the dental field with 16 years of experience. While raising her two active children, Jessica found time to go back to school and upgrade her dental license to achieve a goal that has only been accomplished by a select few. She is one of less than 100 assistants in Northern California that has accomplished this impressive feat. We feel so very lucky to have her in our practice. Jessica performs duties such as taking permanent crown and bridge impressions, cementing crowns, as well as placing fillings. Jessica is more than qualified for this position and we are delighted to introduce her to her new role within our dental team. While not working Jessica enjoys spending time with her two children and husband. They love being outdoors, spending time with family and friends and going on new adventures.
