Karen Navarrete, Office Manager

 Skilled at working both the front and back office, as Office Manager I am very familiar with all of the procedures in the office, which is a great asset in composing the daily schedule. I have been a Registered Dental Assistant since 2006, and I have worked chair side with Dr. Vu since 2009. Our team is dedicated to helping our Dentists provide the best and most comprehensive dental care for our patients in a warm and friendly environment. 

Mamie Kosaka, RDH

I am a third generation Japanese American and I was born and raised in Southern California. I married my childhood classmate and high school sweetheart. We have two grown daughters and recently became grandparents. I met Dr. Becker in 1972 and in 1981 I became his first Dental Hygienist. I graduated from West Los Angeles College Dental Hygiene and I did my clinical work at UCLA with my fellow Hygienist Sandy Meyerowitz. I enjoy the many connections I have made with my patients over the years and in my limited once a month schedule. After forty-five years of dentistry I am still going strong! Keep flossing!!!

Chrysten Silvia

Lead Assistant

I am originally from Massachusetts and moved here to sunny California in 2017. I attended  Diman Regional Vocational Technical High School where i obtained my certificates in Infection Control, Radiation health and safety, and Dental assisting in 2015. After high school I worked at a private practice until I moved here to southern California. My favorite part of the job is getting to know the patients and what makes them feel the most comfortable while being seen in our office. When I'm not working, I love exploring California.
