I believe it is my mission to guide my patients on their journey to ideal health, where I treat not only their oral health issue, but see them as humans first. I listen to their concerns and relate the treatments clearly while soothing their anxiety, so that they feel they are actively engaged and invested in their oral health. I seek to understand what my patients need and how I can help them.

My role is to help navigate the possibilities of restoring your dental and periodontal health, whether it may be due to a dental imbalance or simply reconstructing or rebuilding lost soft tissue/bone, and returning it to a healthy balance. I look forward to collaborating with you in achieving your health goals.

I was inspired to enter the oral health field by my father, who practiced dentistry in several countries. He has encouraged me in all aspects of my professional life, teaching me to approach my patients treatment with excellence and compassion.

I earned my Doctorate of Dental Surgery degree from the University of California, San Francisco in 1997 and my Master of Science degree in Biology, as well as a Certificate in Periodontics and Implantology, from UCSF in 2001.

As a leader in the community, I participate in several study groups where I collaborate with other dental specialists and leaders in multifaceted treatment options. I am a leader of two study groups for our local dentists and hygienists, the Amaya Spears Study Group and the Dental Hygienist Study Group, where I share my knowledge and curiosity for my profession.

As a CDA Trustee and MCDS board member, I am heavily involved in the local dental community and at UCSF, where I am an Assistant Clinical Professor with the Post-Graduate Periodontology and Dental Implants Department. I have given motivational lectures to Latinos in Business of Marin. As a leader, I want to contribute to shaping the community by participating, leading, and inspiring, and being inspired by others.

I have called Marin County home for the past 20 years. When I am not in the office, I am an avid trail runner, enjoy good conversation with trusted friends, and appreciate good food and wine when in good company. I am passionate about travel with a purpose, and have participated in volunteer work with groups in Guatemala, Tibet, Uganda, and Mexico, bringing dental services to remote areas of the world.

At our periodontal practice, we recognize that all of our patients are unique, and deserve to receive periodontal care that reflects their individual needs. Our team is committed to working with you and your family to create a positive, comfortable, and customized periodontal experience every time you visit our practice.

I graduated from the University of Hawaii at Manoa with a Bachelors's degree in Dental Hygiene and have been practicing dental hygiene for the past 30 years in the Bay Area in general and periodontal practices. Additionally, I maintain a private mobile dental hygiene practice (Registered Dental Hygienist in Alternative Practice/RDHAP) providing in-home preventive dental hygiene care as well as working in the community providing preventive dental services to children in underserved areas.

I am so happy to be part of this amazing practice. I get to work with great coworkers and doctors in a field that is interesting and fun. I really enjoy all our wonderful patients that we get to care for.

I first came to the practice in 1991. After 15 years, I took a ten-year detour to work in pediatric dentistry. I am so happy to have had that experience, but even happier to be back to this practice doing more of what I love.

I feel really blessed to be part of such a great team. I have been an RDA for over twenty years and bringing that experience with me to Dr. Amayas practice helps me to better understand our patients needs. It is very rewarding when I can help guide our patients through the very complicated dental insurance process.

I starting working for Dr. Wootton and Dr. Amaya in 2010 as a temporary schedule coordinator. Shortly after doing schedule coordinating I transitioned into the Treatment Coordinator and Financial Planning role. I worked full time in this position for about six years before cutting back to part-time after having my first daughter. I now embrace the role of Practice Relations Director, mainly from home, and do a lot more work with referring offices and other local practices. I do miss seeing patients on the day to day basis and having that in-person connection, so you can bet I jump on any opportunity I get to go into the office and work in person on projects or covering for others.

Iam so lucky to be part of such an amazing team. I have been working in the dental field for over five years now. I have experience as an RDA (registered dental assistant), which I find helpful for understanding the different aspects of dentistry. I enjoy building relationships with our patients and helping them with their dental needs.

When it comes to periodontal disease, early diagnosis, and immediate treatment is very important. If the disease remains untreated, tooth loss will inevitably occur.

We are available to answer questions about treatment possibilities, and work closely with your dentist as a team to address comfort, convenience, and excellence in dental implants and periodontal care.

Regular exams and a healthy lifestyle can make a big difference in your periodontal health. We are here to guide you, not only in improving your periodontal health, but your overall health and wellness as well.
