Dina Contreras - Front Desk Manager
When you first walk through the doors at Craycroft Prime Dental, expect to be greeted first by my smiling face! As a front desk manager, I enjoy interacting with each and every patient and I pride myself on making them feel comfortable when they arrive for their dental appointment. I have been in the dental field for over 17 years and I feel blessed to have been part of this team since August of 2007. I love working at Craycroft Prime Dental because we all work together in giving our patients the best experiences possible. When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my two boys, working out, watching movies, concerts, art, pets, and taking road trips with my family.
Emily Valenzuela - Registered Dental Hygienist
I have had the pleasure of being in the dental field for the past 19 years. I started off as a Certified Dental Assistant for 10 years before going back to school and earning a degree in Dental Hygiene. I have been practicing for the last 9 years, and still love it. What I enjoy most about dentistry is educating my patients on oral hygiene and seeing the before and afters.
When I am not at work, I enjoy traveling, cooking, and trying new restaurants. I am also a proud mother to my teenage son, Ari.
Melissa - Registered Dental Hygienist
My name is Melissa Cox. I have passionately worked in the dental field for 17yrs. My first 7 years were as a dental assistant, focusing mostly in pediatric dentistry. Then I continued my education to become a Registered Dental Hygienist. As a dental hygienist, I've worked in Public Health with children and with specialists for many years in a periodontist practice. I also became a Waterpik Professional Educator. I love teaching and helping others whether it's educating my patients about oral health, other dental professionals, or spreading awareness about Type 1 Diabetes. My son was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease at 2 years old. I believe you should never stop learning and that motivates me to continue to grow as a person and a professional provider.
