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.

Clinical and Administrative Team

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.

Becky Jean – Registered Dental Hygienist

I was inspired by my father to go into the career of dental hygiene. I worked through high school assisting him in his dental office and went to college at the SRJC where I completed my A.S. in Dental Hygiene in 2011.
I was born and raised in Santa Rosa and enjoy our wonderful summers here. In the winter months, I spend most of my weekends skiing in Tahoe. I love running, strength training, shopping, reading, and cooking.
My mission is to make you as comfortable as possible in our dental office and treat you as a part of our family because you are! I hope to educate you on your dental health as well as explain how dental health relates to your overall health and wellbeing.
I am looking forward to meeting you and hearing more about you!

I have been a hygienist since 1981. I attended the Milwaukee Area Technical College to obtain my A.S. certification. I completed my Bachelor of Science from the University of St. Francis. I am a recent transplant to  Northern California, having lived in Southern California for 25 years. I have a background in clinical  dentistry, public health, and teaching. I have 2 young adult children who are both in college. I have a passion for animals. I love dogs.
My goal as a health care provider in the dental office has several elements: to provide my patients with the highest quality of care possible, to care about my patient, not just for the patient, to convey my desire to deliver quality dentistry so that my patients can live a healthy life, to educate them with tools to maintain health by the education. I continue to pursue and strive to make our office a place that the patient feels welcome, respected, and comfortable in. These are my reasons for being here.
I love my work and look forward to meeting all of my new patients.
