Meet Our Team
Savannah (Office Manager)
I am Dr. Marshall’s Office Manager. Taking care of the behind-the-scenes running of an office is my specialty. I handle all insurance and billing related issues that may come up during a patient’s time at our office. I have an A.S. from Grossmont College in Forensic Technology and a B.S. in Criminal Justice from American Military University.
When I am not working I enjoy reading, travelling, and spending time with friends and family. I also love animals and have a German Shepherd (Ricin), two ball pythons (Earl Grey and Sergeant Butters), and co-own a blue roan gelding with our dental assistant, Hannah.
Hannah (Dental Assistant & Appointment Coordinator)
I have been working as a dental assistant since 2009. As a dental assistant, I work closely with Dr. Marshall assisting her in treatments, taking impressions, sterilizing instruments, and performing standard appointments and procedures both in the clinic and the lab. I enjoy getting to know our patients and having the opportunity to work in such an upbeat office. Both our patients and our staff are phenomenal!
In my spare time, I love being at the ranch with my three beautiful horses, Atlas, Eclipse, and Jameson. Training problem horses and going on trail rides with my friends are a few of the adventures that occupy my time on a regular basis. But when I’m not doing something outdoors, I love to get dressed up and spend quality time out on the town with my husband.
Paula (Registered Dental Assistant)
I have been aiding the doctor in the production of beautiful smiles for our patients since 2013. I work closely with Dr. Marshall assisting her in procedures, taking impressions, sterilizing instruments, and performing reties, routine appointments, and multiple other procedures in the clinic. I received my certificate for dental assisting from Pima Medical Institute in Chula Vista. My favorite part of the job is interacting with our patients and getting to see them on a regular basis. I also enjoy working with my hands and creating models and appliances in the lab.
Like our whole team, I enjoy the company of pets and any opportunity for fine dining. I am the proud bunny-mommy of three rabbits. Apart from work, I enjoy cross-fit, mountain-biking, and spending time with my husband.
Emi (Office & Clinical Assistant)
I have been working in this wonderful office since the end of 2016. I mainly take care of Japanese patients, developing Japanese documents and building the Japanese website. I also help the dental assistants in the clinic as needed.
After I moved to America from Japan I found my new joy – running! I enjoy participating in marathons. There are lots of wonderful running courses among the beaches in San Diego, I feel like I can run very long distances! I love spending time with my husband and we are really enjoying living in San Diego.
Nathan (Office & Clinical Assistant)
Hi, my name is Nathan! I’m the newest assistant at Marshall Orthodontics. In my spare time, I am a student at Grossmont High School. There, I do some theater, along with Academic League. Outside of school, I participate in C. Hook Theater, where we put on wonderful productions. I also enjoy reading, playing games, and watching shows.
