Michael Nguyen, DDS

Dr. Michael Nguyen is the youngest of four brothers who grew up in San Jose. He completed his undergraduate studies at the University of California, Davis and completed his dental degree at Midwestern University in Arizona.

Dr. Mike’s passion for dentistry ignited on a dental expedition trip to Liberia, Costa Rica, where he provided free dental services, supplies, and knowledge in underprivileged and impoverished areas. Two health expeditions later, Dr. Mike found himself at Midwestern University in Glendale, Arizona, where he completed his masters in biomedical science and his doctorate in dental medicine. He loves dentistry because it afforded him the ability to empower and lift people up with his knowledge and clinical skills. He enjoys the teaching and teamwork aspects of dentistry, where he can help make his work environment and experience creative, collaborative, and fun. He finds joy in education, relationships, and community. He believes that is what dentistry is all about, and that’s why he loves it.

In his spare time, Dr. Mike enjoys playing basketball, hiking, and camping in national parks. He is a huge Bay Area sports fan. He listens to podcasts and reads books by life performance coaches like Tony Robbins and Tim Ferris.

Sharon Daco, RDH

Sharon received her Bachelor of Science degree in biochemistry from the University of California, Davis. After working a few years as an administrator for a biotech company, she realized her heart was in patient care and decided to continue her dream of becoming a dental hygienist.

She completed her second bachelor’s degree at the University of the Pacific Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry’s dental hygiene program. She is very passionate about providing her patients with optimum dental care in the most comfortable and friendly environment. She truly enjoys cleaning teeth and helping patients take care of their teeth and gums. She feels successful at what she does when patients leave with clean teeth, and no cavities or gum problems! If you have any questions about your oral health or how to best take care of your smile, ask her, she has plenty of information she would love to share with you!

Sharon grew up in Union City and currently resides in the Ardenwood area of Fremont. She has a lot of family in the area and has always considered the Bay Area her home. When Sharon isn’t busy playing with her daughters, she enjoys doing arts and crafts, photography, recreational volleyball, cooking, and going to Disneyland!

Kawelona Doctolero-Tolentino, RDH

Kawe graduated from the Dental Hygiene program at Chabot College. Kawe was actually born in Hawaii on the island of O’ahu and moved to California when she was a child. Prior to becoming a hygienist, Kawe worked part time at Auntie Anne’s Pretzels then began her journey in the dental field as a dental assistant.

She always saw herself working in the medical field and was torn about becoming a nurse because she wanted a field more focused and specialized. Kawe realized that she grew up in a family that did not take care of their teeth and she wanted to do better for them and herself. She wanted to take better care of her own oral health as well as educate her family on the importance of dental hygiene. That sole realization determined her career choice into becoming a dental hygienist to not only share her knowledge with her family, but also better her community. Kawe loves that being a dental hygienist can be challenging, but rewarding and fulfilling at the same time. She enjoys helping patients build their self -esteem by fixing their teeth and smiles. The most rewarding part is being able to put a patient’s anxiety and fears about dentistry at ease.

In Kawe’s spare time she loves to spend time with her family. Some of her hobbies include hula dancing, bike riding, walking her dog, hiking around the bay, and going on adventures with her boyfriend. Kawe enjoys catching up on Netflix series and reading mystery, thriller, and suspense novels. An interesting fact about Kawe is that she is a lefty! Being left handed in dentistry is not only rare, but can be challenging to work with a team that is mainly right handed. In the future, Kawe would like to become a hygienist that is able to travel to different parts of the world and educate patients in need.

Janelle Cruz, RDH

No White Coats. No Judgements. No Pressure. A team first approach, that takes dentistry very seriously but not ourselves. A place to laugh, be healthy, have fun, and be family. Dentistry done best!
