Meet The Team


Theresa • Office Manager

I am from Central Illinois and moved to California in 1985 when I married my husband. We have two wonderful sons. I have worked in the dental field since 1987 of which I attained my RDA certificate. I worked many years side by side with the dentist. After working in the dental field for 16 years and doing front office duties as needed I chose to transition solely to the front office for the past 13 years.

I have worked in this office since 2013 and love working in this office where we are taken good care of by our doctor and the staff and have wonderful patients that enjoy coming in. In my spare time I enjoy hanging out with my family and playing tennis or relaxing and crocheting baby blankets.


Jeanette • Registered Dental Hygienist

I was raised in Northern California, where I worked as a dental assistant and found my love for dentistry. After graduation from Dental Hygiene school in 2013 in Portland, Oregon, I knew it wouldn’t be long before I returned to California, especially sunny San Diego.

I have been working in this office since 2013 and find joy in providing a positive, enthusiastic, and comfortable experience for our patients. Outside of work, I enjoy giving my kitties plenty of attention, I enjoy hiking, rollerblading, cooking and simply being outdoors any chance I get.


Angela • Registered Dental Assistant 

I was born and raised in Beijing.  When I was 24 years old, I moved to Hong Kong and had a brief career in the import-export business.  I moved to the United States in 1993.  I raised my daughter in Del Mar where she graduated from Torrey Pines High School.  She is grown now and works for Kaiser as an efficiency manager.  I am so proud of her and her accomplishments.

I have been a dental assistant since 2004.  In 2010, I became a registered dental assistant (RDA) and now work closely with the dentist in all aspects of dentistry.  I began working for Dr. Takano in 2018 and love my new job.  He is a true professional and his expertise matches my desire to treat the patient with the utmost care.  I have a natural ability to connect to clients and help them feel relaxed in our office.  I look forward to a long and prosperous career assisting Dr. Takano.

When I’m not at work, I like to spend my free time hiking, golfing, and traveling.  In the winter, I like to go to Utah with my boyfriend who loves to ski, but I prefer to hike and come back to the house and make a good after ski dinner!
