Our Team


Mia De La Cruz – Dental Assistant

“I really enjoy coming to work with Dr. Chen and our team and I’ve been doing it everyday since 2006. Each day provides new and exciting opportunities whether I’m learning a new technique or meeting a new patient for the first time.

When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my 2 wonderful boys. I love the outdoors doing hiking and quad riding.”
