Mia Ordway DA

Patient Care Coordinator

Mia is one of the friendly smiles to greet you upon your arrival at the front desk.  She brings over 20 years of dental experience to the practice from dental assisting to office management.  She serves as a liaison between patients and your insurance company.  Mia does her very best to answer any questions regarding your insurance coverage/benefits as well as presenting the treatment plan recommended by your doctor to help provide you with excellent patient care. Her goal is to ensure that you have a smooth, non-stressful visit from the moment you walk in to the moment you leave with a lasting positive experience.

In her spare time, she is with her family skateboarding on the boardwalk, riding her bike with two yorkies named Chewy and Max on her bike basket or spending time at the beach. 

Sherri , RDA

Registered Dental Assistant

"The reason I am very passionate about dentistry is that I get to be a part of giving people healthier smiles. As an assistant, I strive to make the environment comfortable and relaxing for both the patients and the doctor. Having been in dentistry now since 2001, I can’t see myself doing anything else professionally. 

In my free time I enjoy reading and getting outside and keeping active. I feel blessed to get to live in San Diego; it's paradise!"
