We recognize that all of our patients are unique and deserve to receive dental care that reflects their individual needs. Our experienced and talented dental team is committed to working with you and your family to create a comfortable, stress-free, and rewarding dental experience every time you visit our practice. We are pleased to welcome you and your family, and we look forward to working with you.
I began my career in 2009 as a dental assistant and returned to school to earn my hygiene degree in 2016. I love seeing huge improvements in my patients’ oral health and hygiene because of the care and education they received here. My goal is always to help my patients create and maintain healthy, happy, beautiful smiles. Our office is the best, with great people, positive attitudes, and a welcoming atmosphere.
My husband Aaron and I were married in 2017. We live in Hilmar with our daughter Madilyn who is involved with rodeo and 4-H, showing dairy cattle. We truly love spending time with each other and family any chance we get!
I joined Dr. Uyeyama’s team in 2013, 14 years after earning my BS in Dental Hygiene. My job revolves around providing services that prevent oral diseases and maintain oral health. My patients are my number-one priority, and I do everything I can to ensure they leave our office healthier and happier than when they came in. I feel fortunate to work with a doctor and team that are so professional and fun. We all genuinely care about our patients.
I have been married to my husband Ryan for 18 years. We have a 15-year-old son Josh, and our daughter Faith is 12. Our house is complete with our two dogs! As a family, we love to travel, snow ski, and go backpacking. I also enjoy reading, working in my garden, and helping at my children’s school. Both my husband and I are involved with our church as well.
Office Manager and Registered Dental Assistant
I enjoy getting to know our patients and helping them with their dental needs. Each person has different concerns, and the team is committed to making sure the patient’s priorities are ours. I’ve been here since 1993, and have built strong relationships with our patients and families. I help them with their treatment plans, bill their dental insurance, and schedule future visits. I also make sure our practice runs smoothly, so the team can focus on delivering excellent care.
My husband and I have three daughters. We enjoy spending time together, especially going to the beach and the lake, and dancing.
Registered Dental Assistant
I really like getting to know our patients and learning their needs so I can make them feel relaxed and comfortable during their visits. When a person opens up and talks with me, I know they’re feeling safe and at home, and I love that. My days are spent making sure each visit is a good experience, as I work chairside with Dr. Uyeyama while he performs various procedures. I talk with the patient about what’s happening, providing smiles and encouragement.
Away from the office, I spend most of my time with my wonderful family. I’m married and have both a son and a daughter. Being with them is my top priority.
