Meet the Dental Team – Los Gatos, CA

Get to Know Our Friendly Team

Each of our team members has been with us for years, some for decades, and they truly make our dental office a warm, welcoming, and educational environment that patients can feel comfortable in. Dr. Diercks and Dr. Karamardian are the first to commend the team they work alongside every day because they know how much effort they put into making every patient’s appointment personalized and exceptional. You can learn more about our team by reading about them below.
