Melissa Sears

Melissa Sears: Office Manager

I have been in the dental field for 16yrs. I grew up in Sacramento and moved to Roseville 7 years ago with my husband, 2 daughters, and stepson. I started my dental career as a receptionist. I went to Sacramento City College to obtain my X-ray license and began working side by side with the dentist. This gave me a better understanding of how procedures were performed start to finish. I have extensive knowledge of dental insurances and how they work. In my free time I enjoy traveling, spending time with my family, and baking.

Julie Conrad: Dental Hygienist

I have enjoyed being a hygienist for the last 11 years. I am privileged to be at the same office I started in. Through these years I have established a long lasting friendship with my patients and their families. I am married to a wonderful man named Steve, and we have 2 beautiful daughters, Lauren and Addison. In our down time we enjoy watching our kids on the soccer field, basketball court, softball field, the swimming pool, or the golf course. We love to travel anywhere warm and tropical.
