I chose to join this amazing team because they provide excellent quality of care and service. We are all very close; they are like a second family to me.” In her spare time, Bev enjoys spending time with her beau and three children, Zumba, and IPA. Not always in that order!

Carly was born and raised in San Diego, where she attended Mesa College for dental assisting in 2008 and received her RDA license in 2009. There is no comparison to Dr. Christensen and the team to any other office. “I really care about my co-workers and our great patients. My main goal is to make sure everyone has a great experience with us and feels like family when they leave.” Carly transitioned to the front office in 2014, because she wanted to further expand her skills in the dental field. When she is not at work, she is enjoying her time with friends, family, and her cat MooMoo.

Dental Assistant El Cajon CACINDY
Dental Assistant

In the dental industry since 1971, Cindy loves to learn – and that is definitely a benefit to our patients! She studied to be a dental assistant at the Pacific College for Medical and Dental Assisting. Now she takes continuing education courses at Grossmont just for fun! In fact, her job feels more like a hobby to her than work, and she loves the people she interacts with on a daily basis. She feels that everyone works together extremely well, better than any other practice she has worked at, and that together, they keep the practice running like a well-oiled machine. “I wouldn’t change what I do,” says Cindy. “I love all of it!” When she is not at work, she spends as much time with her two children and six grandbabies as she can, enjoying her happy life to the fullest. Her hobbies include bead-working, sewing, painting, stained glass, wood-working, and cooking...and she wants to learn to speak Spanish next!
