Meet the Team

I have been an RDA since 1990, for the past 11 years I have been working with Dr. Galen Fillmore, and before that I worked with his brother, Dr. Gerald Fillmore for 11 years. You will find me in the front office or the back working on patients, pretty much everywhere. I love getting to know our patients and their families, helping them in the process of creating a beautiful smile, most of all I love working with our amazing team!

I enjoy traveling all over the world with my husband, most of the time I have my toes in the sand in Hawaii, chilling in the snow in Lake Tahoe, or soaking up some sun at Disneyland with my daughter and 2 grandsons. We also have a Labrador retriever and a Mini Schnauzer that keep us pretty busy too!

I am an RDA and I have been working in Orthodontics for about 4 years now. I am one of the first people you see when you walk in, and the last one on your way out! I can help you check in or schedule your next appointment. I also can help you with any financial or insurance questions. If you’re lucky you’ll see me in the back office working on patients, it’s a rare phenomenon.

My fiancé and I have recently moved up North from the Bay Area (saving me a total of 3 hours in traffic each day). In my free time, I love playing with my pit bull and chihuahua, bowling, fishing, shooting, and driving my Jeep around in the mud. I also love telling and hearing jokes, so if you know a good one be sure to tell me when you come in!

I have been in the dental field for roughly 12 years and I’ve been in orthodontics for 6 of those years. You’ll find me in the back working on patients, covering patients noses in alginate, telling jokes, and just being goofy. You may also find me in the front managing the Denti-Cal claims.

I lived in the Bay Area for the last 8 years and recently moved to Chico. When I’m not at work you’ll find me spending time with my kitties, Karli and Stevie, or training for some upcoming race. I enjoy running long distances and have been making great use of the trails Chico has to offer.

I recently graduated from a Dental Assisting program here in Chico, and started my career here at Dr. Fillmore’s office. You’ll find me working in the back office assisting Dr. Fillmore, taking impressions, and joking with patients. I enjoy orthodontics because we get to build a relationship with our patients, and get to see how happy they are after years of hard work!

In my free time, I love baking and cooking, going to the river, and spending time with my family. We have a four-year-old son, a little one on the way, and a kitty named Hobbes.
