Lori- Scheduling Coordinator:
I started in dentistry in the mid 90's. I wanted to do something that I would enjoy and would have a prosperous career. I started in the dental profession working with patients of all ages. I really enjoyed being able to help patients feel comfortable and at the end of the appointment always seeing them smile. Over the years I've continued learning, becoming certified in several areas including coronal polishing, taking x-rays, CPR and OSHA. I have been with Dr. Gutierrez since March 1999, the first 10 working chair side and the last 9 as the scheduling coordinator. I have awesome coworkers and a great work environment.

Patti- Office Administrator and Insurance Coordinator
I met Reuben in dental school and have worked with him in the dental arena ever since. We have raised our 2 kids in the dental environment and still have patients who remember them as little kids. Our son is now a Lt Colonel in the Air Force and out daughter does Treatment Care foster work. We have been blessed to work with many wonderful people-both staff and patients over the years. My work concentrates mostly on insurance and I love working for our patients to receive their maximum benefits. Reuben's current staff is outstanding and I feel so blessed to be a part of such a special group.
