Debbie (Registered Dental Hygienist) has been with the practice since October 1989. She has enjoyed developing long-term relationships with her patients, helping them achieve optimal periodontal health. The best part of her day is getting caught up with each patient about the happenings of the previous months. How was the vacation? Is the school year going well for the kids? How’s work? Along with Dr. Arita, she is our resident exercise nut, who enjoys running, yoga, biking, skiing, pilates, and weight lifting. In September, she completed her first triathlon. Her daughter is the light of her life. She brings a gentle touch and warm smile to the dental room.

One of the best parts of having dental work done at Dr. Arita’s office is being in Dina’s (Registered Dental Assistant) capable hands. With 26 years of experience behind her, she can deftly take you through any procedure with comfort and ease, all while entertaining you with stories about gardening, cooking, or Isabelle, her adorable Shitzu-Poodle. Recently, Dina has decided to do her part for the environment by riding the bus to work two days a week. Now we can’t wait to hear the interesting tales she shares about the new people she meets. Dina’s generosity of spirit extends beyond the dental office. She donates her time to help others in need, whether it’s doing yard duty at St. Lucy, visiting an elderly church member, serving up food in the soup kitchen, or tending to a sick friend. Dina brings joy to all who know her and we are lucky to have her in our office.

Samantha (Front Office) loves to spend time with her family and enjoys riding her bike. A great day is a 50 mile bike ride and a great family dinner. She enjoys triathlons and has two children who she adores.

Jan (Registered Dental Hygienist) is a Cabrillo College Graduate. She has been commuting and practicing Dental Hygiene for more than 30 years. She enjoys getting to know her patients and helping them with their hygiene needs. When not working she enjoys her husband and two boys and getting together for family gatherings. She also enjoys cooking, long walks along the beach and reading.

Ginny really loves being a Registered Dental Hygienist. No two patients are alike but everyone has a common desire: to have a healthy, beautiful smile. It gives her great satisfaction when she helps patients obtain that goal. She feels very fortunate because she literally stumbled upon her career path. Her love for languages and art took her to Italy but she needed work, so she assisted in a dental office while going to school. She discovered that she really enjoyed working in a clinical environment, helping people overcome their anxieties about dental work and explaining how to take better care of their smiles. She received her hygiene degree in Boston in 1992, and has experience in all areas of hygiene including 7 years in pediatric dentistry. She has lived in San Jose now for 14 years with her husband and kids. She loves to cook, draw and get outside with her family. She tries to learn something new everyday, and floss. Dr. Arita's office is one of the best she’s ever worked in because the focus on prevention and patient comfort is a shared priority, the staff is a team that is highly professional yet fun to work with and the patients are wonderful!
