Office Manager

Our patients' personal experience and dental satisfaction are of the utmost importance to Melissa. With over 20 years in the dental field and over 30 years in exceptional customer service, she prides herself in her ability to provide each and every patient with a level of service that is both professionally and individually fulfilling.

Melissa loves spending time with her family, friends, two dogs, and two cats. From her time at UC Davis, her love and care for animals have never waned. She finds helping others to be both gratifying and rewarding in and out of the office.


Insurance and schedule coordinator

Ashley is very upbeat with a warm smile, making all our patients feel comfortable from the instant they walk in the door. Outside of work, Ashley loves spending time with her family and supporting her three boys in sports. She is looking forward to making many more memories with her husband and kids. Ashley loves being a part of this amazing team, and she looks at all of her coworkers like family. "I feel truly blessed to have joined this team and to be so supported and cared about."


Insurance and schedule coordinator

Laura is an amazing addition to our office staff. Laura moved to the Sacramento area six years ago from Portland. Just after moving here, she started her career in the dental field. She has dedicated her time to helping people get scheduled while utilizing their insurance benefits. When she sees patients get the smile they have always wanted, it makes all the work worthwhile.

Outside of work, she enjoys FaceTiming with her nieces and nephews and visiting home any chance she gets. Being from Portland, she loves the Portland Trail Blazers. She also loves to read and explore new restaurants in the area.

Hygienist, RDH

Sammi has been an important member of Sierra Gate Family Dental since 2021. She received her RDA license in 2004 and later expanded her dental career by becoming a dental assisting instructor at Carrington College in Citrus Heights, CA, a position she held for nearly five years. However, Sammi knew she wanted to further her formal dental education and chose to pursue her passion for becoming a dental hygienist. In 2010, she earned her Bachelor of Science degree in dental hygiene from the prestigious New York University College of Dentistry, graduating with high honors, as well as earning a minor in teaching and education.

When she’s not caring for her wonderful patients, Sammi enjoys spending time with her husband and two sons, as well as getting together with friends and family. She also enjoys traveling, watching a good movie, and exploring new restaurants around town with her husband.

Hygienist, RDH

Jillian is a Roseville native. She obtained her Associate of Science degree in dental hygiene from Sacramento Carrington College in 2017. Before becoming a dental hygienist, she worked as a dental assistant for four years, extending her dental skills.

She is passionate about building strong relationships with all her patients and prides herself on providing the highest standards in patient care.

When Jillian is not working, she is spending time with her husband and young daughter. She loves baking, reading, and traveling.



Kat started in the dental field by completing her DA back in 2014 through ROP. She worked as a DA for a few years and then worked toward and completed her RDA license. Kat knew she wanted to take her dental career a step further and decided to complete her RDAEF2 through J Productions in 2017. Kat absolutely loves being an EF2 and being able to cater to her patients in a new, fun, and exciting way.

Kat currently lives in Roseville with her husband, Matt, and their daughter, Josie. In her spare time, Kat loves spending time with her family, enjoying tasty food, traveling, and relaxing by the fire pit in her backyard.



I’m Teigen. I am currently a DA, and my goal is to become an RDAEF2. I love coming to work and seeing so many amazing patients. I love creating connections with my coworkers and patients. Some of my favorite hobbies are gardening and hanging out with my bearded dragons.
