Toby

Office Manager

As our office manager, I am responsible for scheduling appointments, managing the books for the practice, determining the schedule for the practice, PR, and managing all insurance claims ... pretty much everything but the actual dentistry! I started my career more than 35 years ago and have been with Dr. Watson since 2003.

The most important part of my job isn’t the paperwork — it’s the people. I know coming to the dental office can be confronting for some. I do my best to make it very pleasant and just a little fun!

I have one fabulous daughter who lives in LA with her husband. I myself got married in 2018 and am very, very happy about that! My wife and I live three blocks from the beach. I’m a power walker, often on the coastal trail. I love gardening at home and at our teeny little balcony garden that I’ve created at the dental office. I’m a reader, traveler, and camper. I volunteer as a coach with Landmark Worldwide, a personal growth and development organization. Oh, and our two cats, Howie and Sammy, pretty much rule the house!

Josielene

Registered Dental Assistant

I began my career in 1994, after completing the dental assistant program from Bryman School. I joined Dr. Watson in 2008, where, for the past decade, I’ve assisted during procedures and made patients as comfortable as possible. Our office is a professional working environment where our experienced staff works well as a team.

I have lived in San Francisco for more than 25 years. When I’m not at work, I love spending time with my husband and our three children. My hobbies include watching movies, going to coffee bars, wine tasting, and walking.

 

Debra

Debra

Registered Dental Hygienist

I work directly with patients to implement dental hygiene services and promote healthy teeth and gums. I began my career in 1989 and joined Dr. Watson’s team in 2007. Dr. Watson is passionate and enthusiastic about providing the best dental care to our patients. His heart is in his work and it shows!

I enjoy caring for our patients and helping them help themselves by giving encouragement and the tools and techniques to care for their teeth at home using personalized routines. The best part is patients coming back in a better state of dental health!

I’m a friendly person who loves people and hearing about their lives. I love nature and being outdoors and favor mountains and lakes over big cities. I have one son whom I adore and love spending time with. I am a lifetime lover of animals and a cat person. My cat is named Lucy: I inherited her from my stepfather and could not love her more. I love to travel and see new places and meet new people.

 

Delia

Delia

Dental Hygienist

My goal is to help patients understand how important it is to have a healthy mouth and how it relates to overall health. I provide personalized hygiene care specific to each person’s unique health needs.

I hold an associate’s degree in dental hygiene and a bachelor’s degree in business administration from Sonoma State. I’ve been a part of Dr. Watson’s team for ten years. It is a pleasure to be a part of this office, since we all share the common goal of providing exceptional patient care.

I have two grown daughters and one grandson. I love sports and am a golf fanatic!

 

Joanne

Joanne

DDS / Hygienist

I earned my Doctorate of Dental Surgery in 1993. At Dr. Watson’s practice, I tend to handle recall appointments for patients and emergency/on-call consultations, and emphasize patient relations and education. Our office has a positive quality and truly cares about our patients’ well being.

I have been married for more than 20 years. I have a grown daughter and teenaged twins, a boy and a girl.

 

Judy

Judy

Dental Hygienist

I began my dental career as an assistant in 1976, and continued my education to become a registered dental hygienist. I brought my many years of experience with me when I joined Dr. Watson’s office in 2014. The most important part of my job is forming relationships with my patients. By creating trust, I can help my patients achieve their very best oral health.

I was born and raised in New York. I moved to Los Angeles in 1976 and the Bay Area in 1982. I was married for 35 years to my wonderful husband Don, who passed away in 2017 from cancer. I am a passionate animal lover and have shared my home with many rescued dogs over the years. I currently live with three small dogs whom I adore! I love movies, do a little artwork, play a little music, and have been known to dance in my kitchen.
