Graciela Gonzalez – Office Manager
I have been working at Gonzalez Dental Care for over 25 years now, and I have even had all my veneers done by Dr. Gonzalez. As the office manager, I have various responsibilities, but what I love most is when I am able to make a patient feel at home. I have seen most of the same patients coming in for over 20 years, and now they bring in the next generation. We have an array of patients that come through our doors, from single people to couples and very large families. We are able to provide treatment for all family members, including the 1-year-old toddler and the more mature, elderly patient. I think what gives me the most pleasure is when I see that a patient’s brother, cousin, friend, or family come to our practice. It reinforces my job and what we are here to do. From the start, we wanted to provide the best and most advanced dental treatment to every patient that walks through our door.
Meritza Gonzalez – Financial Coordinator
I started working with Gonzalez Dental Care once I graduated from San Francisco State and received my bachelor’s degree in biology. I enjoy helping patients with payment options and making it possible for them to have the dental work that they need. I work hard in getting all the necessary information from each patient’s insurances to make sure that patients do not have any surprise fees after their treatment is complete. I am here to help the patients, and every day I work hard to ensure that everyone who walks through our front door has a very pleasant experience with us.
Livier – Financial Coordinator
I have been working for Dr. Alfonso Gonzalez at the Redwood City office for almost 25 years. Over the years, I have seen him grow into an amazing dentist who loves to help his patients as if they were his own family. I think that this is why I have been able to work in the same place for all these years. It is nice to see the same faces year after year, but I also get great pleasure when I am able to help new patients when they come in, and they seem so happy that they found our office. Now I have the pleasure of seeing Dr. Gonzalez’s daughters make the same impact on our patients. I have a large family of my own, and it gives me great comfort knowing that I am able to help other families get the treatment they need by giving them payment options that work with their particular situation.
Cecy Anaya – Dental Assistant
I have been a dental assistant for Gonzalez Dental Care for over 8 years. I enjoy working at this high-tech office, and I feel that my skills improve with every day. There is never a dull moment because we do extractions, implants, and root canals, and we are always upgrading to the newest technology. Recently, I have been spending a lot of time designing and milling crowns on our new E4D CAD-CAM computer; this allows me to be an artist and work at the same time. Patient comfort and communication are very important to me, and I know that patients feel very comfortable asking me any questions that they may have, or simply just telling me about their day.
Mely Gonzalez – Dental Assistant
I have been with Dr. Alfonso Gonzalez since he started practicing in 1981. I have been by his side, and I have seen him grow, learn, and improve every step of the way. As his skills improved, my knowledge was also expanded. I enjoy organizing the practice and all our materials, which is essential at our practice because of all the different procedures and treatments that we provide. Aside from being a dental assistant, I also know my way around the front desk and am able to help patients with any insurance or treatment questions that they may have.
