Dr. Von Chan

I am originally from Southern California and graduated from University of the Pacific in Stockton, California.  I graduated in 1999, in San Francisco at the University of the Pacific, Dugoni School of Dentistry, followed by a residency program in Advanced Education in General Dentistry at the University of California, San Francisco.  I have completed my advanced training in hospital dentistry, Endodontics, Prosthodontics, Implantology, Oral Surgery, Oral Pathology, and Temporomandibular Disorder. In 2015, I earned my Fellowship in Dental Implantology from the International Congress of Oral Implantologists.

I am passionate about dental health and enjoy practicing dentistry. My oral health care philosophy includes treating whole patients, not just oral disease.  This approach allows me to provide a health-focused dental practice and achieve balance by promoting stability and harmony in all aspects of life: physical, social, emotional, spiritual, and intellectual.
I am active in continuing education and always exceed the amount required by the American Dental Board.  I believe in giving back to the community by volunteer work and educating our children about dental health.  Outside of the office, I love spending time with my husband, two sons who are 4 and 7 years old, and my daughter who is 2 years old.  I also enjoy hiking, camping, traveling, and have an avid interest in the latest food fad (foodie).
Thank you for visiting our website, and it would be a privilege to serve you.

Judy – Office Manager

Hello there! Welcome to our website.
Due to the fact that I wear multiple hats, which include (but are not limited to) receptionist, insurance and financial coordinator, schedule coordinator, and office administrator, I will probably be your first contact with our office. I have worked in dentistry for about 30 plus years, but I do not let my job interrupt my social schedule or hobbies, which include boating and travel.
It is my mission to be devoted in providing excellent customer service so your experience is a positive one. Your comfort is our priority.
I’m looking forward to hearing from you. Call me anytime!

Lori – Administrative Assistant

Hello there.
I started working in dentistry when I was in high school. I have worked as a receptionist, an insurance, and financial administrator, scheduler, manager and just about every job in the front office. I was born and raised in Santa Rosa, but I have lived in San Francisco, Seattle, and Portland. My husband and I moved back to beautiful Sonoma County about 3 years ago. I have a stepdaughter attending college in Portland and a big beautiful cat that runs the house. I enjoy  reading, tennis, gardening, cooking, travel, and the Giants.
From your very first call to the moment you leave our office, my mission is to be a welcoming caring, helpful contact for you and your dental needs. I look forward to hearing from you and facilitating your first visit to your new dental home.

Sean – Registered Dental Hygienist

Hi, I’m Sean Gronberg, a Registered Dental Hygienist. I switched my major from Civil Engineering to Dental Hygiene in 2014. I graduated from the Santa Rosa Dental Hygiene program and have developed a passion for serving my community and providing health education. I was given much inspiration and encouragement from my grandfather. He had been a Dentist for Public Health with the coast guard on the west and east coast, and later transitioned to dental materials research. One of my greatest joys is to help someone achieve health and the smile they seek. I am a Sonoma county local, born and raised. During my free time I enjoy hiking, spending time at the lakes, and all around enjoy the wonderful opportunities our county has to offer. I look forward to being your dental hygienist.
