  • Juanita Ivy - Sifuentes / Office Manager

    Juanita began at the practice in August of 2014. Before Mainland Dental she was a registered dental assistant for 3 years. My background has been mostly in the medical field however my greatest joy is helping our patients understand and make an educated decision toward their dental treatment. Juanita loves the fact that Mainland Dental Center is a small practice and has the ability to focus on patients and know them as well as their family!

    Juanita is a mother of 3 children and have a beautiful grand daughter that is my pride and joy! All of her free time is focused on spending time with her husband, children and their families.
