We are a fun-loving team and enjoy working together.

Welcome to our practice family!


Shannon is married and loves being a mom to her two rapidly growing girls. She plays volleyball and tennis and watches a lot of her daughters’ soccer matches and volleyball games! She has been a dental hygienist for over 20 years, in this office since 2004, and still loves what she does! On this Journey called life she continually learns that life is best lived one day at a time with our eyes focused on Jesus and the people he puts in our lives. We are grateful for Shannon’s long-standing support of our patients and her teammates!


Laurie is a fourth-generation Santa Barbara native, and proud alumna of Santa Barbara High School. She is married and is a busy mom to her adorably precocious fraternal twins. Laurie has been a Registered Dental Assistant for over 35 years, and also comes with dental laboratory experience. She has many interests and hobbies including music, classic cars, reading, cooking and baking, crafting, all things Disney, and spending lots of quality time with her family. We are blessed to have her on our team!


Maya recently graduated from UC Santa Barbara with a degree in Biological Sciences and is in the process of discovering what career path she’d like to pursue. In the meantime, she is loving Santa Barbara and the opportunity to learn from Dr. Pham! When she’s not at work she enjoys hanging out with friends and family, reading, and dancing.


Leslie is originally from Fresno and now lives in Santa Barbara with her adorable service dog, a pug named Gracey. In 2011 she suffered a stroke caused by a snowboarding accident, but she still enjoys snowboarding to this day! Before her stroke, Leslie was an avid waterpolo player and was inducted into the Hall of Fame at Merced College. She then transferred to the University of California, Berkeley where she completed her Bachelor’s degree with a scholarship in 2007. She later graduated  from the dental hygiene program at Fresno Junior College in 2016 with the Dean’s Medallion and Colgate Star Award. She was the first stroke survivor to graduate from the program! She is passionate about dental hygiene and loves helping her patients achieve a clean and healthy smile!


Rocket is an adorable Boston Terrier puppy who resides part-time at the office! His favorite things include cuddles, lunch-time walks, and napping in one of his many cozy sweaters. His goal is to train as a therapy dog so he can provide comfort to patients during treatment, but for now he is enjoying greeting patients at the front desk. We adore having him on our team!
