I have been in the Dental field for fifteen years. I started in this office in 2004 working for Leland Porteous, and continued working for doctors Pam Porteous- Burke and Matt Burke when they took over the practice. The most rewarding part of my job is meeting and helping patients whether it be an emergency or seeing them attain the perfect smile.

I live in Hercules, CAwith my husband Yonas. In my spare time I love doing anything that allows me to be outdoors. Whether it be vacationing somewhere new or sitting outside on my porch. Where there is sun, you will find me. When I'm not with my work family, I love spending time with my huge family at home, especially with my 10 nieces and nephews

Being someone who absolutely hates having to go to the dentist, I have to say that this practice makes it much much easier. They are all incredibly nice and all very gentle. Even the most invasive procedures are done with minimal discomfort. They really know what they're doing and it shows. Communication is also something that really stands out with how thorough they explain things and listen to concerns with compassion.

From the moment I walked in they made me feel welcomed. My cleaning went so well Jasmine was amazing, super understanding and great at what she does. She made me feel at ease specially after I told her how I suffer from anxiety when at the dentist.

This place is the reason I have to take anxiety meds when I see the dentist now. As a young woman I felt like the doctor was very dismissive of pain he caused. Probably because I was a young woman. A specific experience was he told me to raise my hand if it hurt while he was doing a filling. I don't think the local block was working great. He hit a spot that was incredibly painful. I raised my hand. And instead of stopping, he instructed his nurse to hurry up. I was an adult with tears streaming down my face. I made him stop and informed him that all I needed was a minute to compose myself. This was one of many negative experiences. I have since been to compassionate dentists and now see this place was not. (To add details, Dr. Porteous was my dentist as a child/young adult. I have not been a patient there in a very long time. Maybe their patient care has improved)

Friendly and responsive as always. And really good at fulfilling requests, like getting reminders via text so I can arrive 3 minutes early instead of 10 late, even with my ADHD. Edit: The kiddo also likes how fun and friendly everyone is and they were great about accommodating us to find non-mint stuff.

I needed a lot of work done because I don't like going to the dentist. My brother in law owns his own dental lab and he told me this place was really good. He knows how picky I am. He said "trust me you will be comfortable here." He was rite! We did my work in sections. I would wait for my insurance to get replenished. He never ever made me feel pressured into getting something done that I wasn't ready for. Whatever pace I needed to go with was fine with him. He would just walk me through each step. It took 2 years to finish everything, because that is what I was comfortable with. The whole experience was really amazing. Now I will never wait this long again. Now that all my work is complete. I'm going to make sure I get my cleanings and I stay on top of it.
