Administrative Team

Herminia
Appointment Coordinator

Born and raised in Napa, Herminia began her dental carreer in 1996. She has the amazing ability to speak two languages, Spanish and English. What she enjoys most about dentistry is the positive connections she makes with patients. She serves as a patient advocate, helping them along the way to ensure they understand their dental needs. In addition to her dental experience she is a CNA, Certified  Nurse Assistant. Herminia has many passions including her church and helping the elderly. When asked what she would do if given $1 million dollars she said "help children in need." And who would guess, her least favorite food is a hamburger!

Lissette
Registered Dental Assistant

Lissette

Lissette is quiet, sort of shy but very sweet and talented. She is bilingual which is very helpful (Spanish and English). She began working with Dr. Claus at the completion of her dental assisting education, October 2011. She works alongside Dr. Claus during most procedures where she ensures that each patient leaves satisfied with their dental experience. Lissette really likes getting to know each patient, hearing their stories, and seeing them proud of their improved dental health. When she is not at work, Lissette spends time with family and friends and loves exploring the outdoors with her son. She brings the best lunches to work, we always want to eat what she's eating!
