Our Dental Team

Patients routinely describe our team members as friendly, supportive, helpful and reassuring. They say they feel welcomed almost as family each time they visit our office. We think you'll feel the same upon meeting Shirley, Scott, Kim, Ruth, and Dori.

Shirley, our beloved office manager, has worked with Dr. Rota since 1971. She's an expert at facilitating patient treatment plans and scheduling, and she has extraordinary knowledge of dental insurance and the claim process. Weekends, Shirley enjoys spending time with friends.

Scott is a Registered Dental Assistant with Extended Functions (RDAEF) who has worked with Dr. Rota since 1996. He holds a Bachelor’s in health education from CSU Northridge and earned his Extended Function license through UCLA. He is married and has a 6 year old daughter and 3 year old son.

Kimberly graduated from the Dental Hygiene Program in Ohio. Kimberly is committed to providing educational and clinical services that will allow patients to experience optimal oral health. She frequently attends dental conventions and regularly takes continuing education courses to further her knowledge of dentistry and its advancements. Kimberly is married and has two young boys.


Ruth has been our chairside assistant since early 2012. She enhances each patient’s experience by creating a comfortable and reassuring environment. She enjoys educating our patients and providing quality dental care.
