Bahar

Practice Manager

Hi! My name is Bahar, and I’m the practice manager here at SMED. I am responsible for both our front and back office. I mainly handle admin work in the front office and work as a clinical assistant training our dental assistants and volunteers. I recently graduated with my master’s degree in global medicine from USC. In my free time, I like staying active by playing volleyball, going to the gym or hiking with my friends. I’m always looking for new food adventures, so if you know a good spot, let me know! I’m obsessed with dogs, so feel free to bring your fur baby to the office on your visit. I look forward to getting to know all of you!

Brice

Dental Assistant

Hi! My name is Brice and I am currently in my gap year after graduating from UCLA in the spring of 2021. I am about to be a double Bruin, as I am committed to attending UCLA’s School of Dentistry in the fall, #GoBruins. In my free time, I love running, hiking and hanging out with my roommates and family. I am also an avid vegan foods connoisseur! At SMED, I love to work on our social media, so make sure to check us out at @smeddental! I look forward to meeting all of you when you come into the office!

Ella

Dental Assistant

Hi! My name is Ella and I am a third year student studying biochemistry at UCLA. I am hoping to apply to dental school after my senior year. I’m from Portland, which has instilled in me a love of delicious food and outdoor adventures that I still love to do in LA, especially beach days! I joined the SMED family as a volunteer over a year ago and have absolutely loved the fun, collaborative and supportive environment at the office! Can’t wait to meet you all soon!

Eun Bi

Dental Assistant

Hello! My name is Eun Bi and I recently graduated with a bachelor’s degree in microbiology, immunology, and molecular genetics at UCLA. I was born in Korea but raised in Guatemala. I can speak fluent Spanish and Korean, so if you need any help with translating during your time at SMED, let me know! I recently started crocheting and painting during my days off! I’m looking forward to meeting all of our new patients and for all of you to meet our ever-growing team!

Michelle

Dental Assistant

Hello! My name is Michelle, and I am currently a senior majoring in psychobiology at UCLA. I was born and raised in Vietnam but moved to the U.S. during high school, so I can speak fluent Vietnamese and English. During my free time, I enjoy cooking Vietnamese dishes, binge-watching Netflix and traveling. I am excited to be a part of our supportive SMED team and get to meet all of our patients!

Nhi

Dental Assistant

Hi! My name is Nhi. I am a graduate of UCLA, where I majored in biochemistry. I am planning to attend University of the Pacific Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry this upcoming fall of 2022. My favorite parts of working at Santa Monica Esthetic Dentistry are interacting with diverse patients and having a very supportive SMED family. In my free time, I enjoy cooking Vietnamese dishes with my mom, crocheting and watching Netflix. I also really like nature and hiking, so one of my bucket list items is to hike to all the national parks in the U.S. and maybe the world one day. I am excited to meet all of you!
