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!

Beth

Dental Hygienist

My favorite part of the dentistry is our patients! It makes my day when the patient understands how and why their dental hygiene affects their whole health. I love to see the major changes in their mouth and how excited they are that they created that change by their daily home care with healthy dental habits! I have been working in dental offices since the 1980’s. I also taught dental hygiene for a brief three years when we lived in Florida and I plan to continue my career working as a dental hygienist. Outside the office, I love spending time with my three adult children and my siblings. We often meet at one of the many beautiful beaches here for water fun and or shopping!

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!

Hello, my name is Justin! I am finishing up my B.S. of Psychobiology at UCLA and I’m planning to attend USC Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry. Outside of school, I am an avid crochet artist, write lots of poetry, and am interested in fitness. My favorite part about working at Santa Monica Aesthetic Dentistry is having the opportunity to explore all of the latest dental tech at the practice.

Hi! My name is Nhi Trinh. I’m a recent graduate from UCLA, where I majored in biochemistry.

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 US and maybe the world one day. I’m excited to meet all of you!
