  • Diana Ohanesian—Front Office Administrator and Treatment Coordinator
    Diana has been a smiling face in Dr. Azling’s front office since 1997. She started her career in dentistry as an assistant in 1991 and after a few years, she realized she preferred working in the front office. Providing outstanding customer service with compassion is what Diana loves most about her job, and she especially enjoys helping the fearful patient by making them feel comfortable. Diana is a major Angels baseball fan and in her free time, she enjoys listening to country music, camping, and taking river trips with her husband, Mike, and son, Timothy. Her favorite holidays are Halloween and 4th of July.

  • Catalina Bustos—Front Office Administrator and Financial Coordinator
    Catalina has been in the dental field since she was 19 years-old, starting out first as a dental assistant and then moving into the front office five years later. She has been on Dr. Azling’s team since 2004 and says that the best part of her job is interacting with our unique and interesting patients. Outside of the office, Catalina enjoys reading, scrapbooking, staying fit, and of course, spending family time with her husband, Danny, and her children Christian and Yazmeen. Catalina’s favorite quote is “Things go wrong so you can appreciate them when they’re right. Sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.”

  • Jenny Nauta—Front Office Receptionist and Hygiene Coordinator
    Jenny was born in Guam and moved to Southern California as a 15 year-old girl. She started at Dr. Azling’s office in 2007 as a part-time file clerk and quickly proved herself as a hard worker and strong team player, earning herself a full-time front office position in a very short time. She loves the friendship and camaraderie she feels at Dr. Azling’s office, and it’s her friendly smile that patients first see when walking in the door. Jenny is proud of her husband, Ken, who has served in the US Marine Corps since 1990. Although he is frequently away on tours for extended periods of time, Jenny remains positive and upbeat for her two college-age children, Kenny and Marissa. She enjoys traveling and her favorite memories are from Okinawa (Japan), Perth (Australia), and Paris (France).

  • Dawn Crow—Registered Dental Hygienist
    Dawn grew up in a dental family: her grandpa and dad were both dentists and now her brother is one too. Dawn says she wasn’t really interested in dentistry as a kid but it grew on her and turns out it’s a great fit! Dawn received her Dental Hygiene degree from Cerritos College in 1992 and began working for Dr. Azling in September that same year. She went on to receive her BS in Vocational Education from Cal State Long Beach in 1997. The best part about Dawn’s job is not only having the opportunity to help her patients with their dental health, but also getting to know them on a personal level, hearing about children & grandchildren being born, new jobs, vacations, anniversaries, life experiences, colleges, etc. Dawn loves 80’s music and her favorite song is “Crazy for You” by Madonna.

  • Jeannette Wiersma – Registered Dental Hygienist
    Jeannette, a native of Cerritos, started her dental career in the early ‘80s as a dental assistant and receptionist. She then attended the Dental Hygiene program at Cerritos College and graduated 1994. As an exceptional hygienist with Dr. Azling since 1994, Jeannette is the team leader of the hygiene department. Jeannette has also earned her BS degree in Health Science , her MS in Natural Health, and her certification in the JP Mastery Dental Hygiene program. She favors a personable, one-on-one approach to hygiene, to earn the trust and confidence of her patients. In her free time, Jeannette enjoys visiting her brother’s dairy farm in Texas and spending time with her family, friends, and pets. Embracing her Dutch culture, Jeannette adheres to the motto “Dutch clean is supreme”.

  • Kelly Drinkwine – Registered Dental Hygienist
    Kelly was inspired by a wonderful dentist she had growing up and got into the field by first becoming a registered dental assistant and then a registered dental hygienist. Kelly graduated from USC with a BS in Dental Hygiene in 1998 and has been on Dr. Azling’s hygiene team since April 2000. An interesting fact about Kelly is that she enjoys collecting antique dental tools, books, products, and memorabilia--but don’t worry, none are used in our office! She also enjoys spending time with her son, Cameron, and says that the beach is her happy place. Kelly’s favorite quote is “Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things.”

  • Beth Harp – Registered Dental Hygienist
    Beth started working at Dr. Azling’s office right out of high school in 1996 as a sterilization tech. She decided to become a dental assistant, and after graduating from the dental assisting program at Cypress College in 1998, Beth assisted Dr. Azling from 1998 to 2001. She then decided to become a hygienist and left the practice to again attend the hygiene school at Cypress College, where she graduated in 2003. Beth says what she enjoys most about being a hygienist is interacting with her patients and helping them achieve a healthy smile. Outside of the office, Beth enjoys family time with her husband, Sam, and their three children, Sloan, Slade, and Chase. Her favorite vacation spot is Bora Bora.

  • Feli Ruth Ramirez—Registered Dental Assistant
    Feli gives credit for her interest in dentistry to growing up with a crooked cuspid tooth that stuck out every time she smiled. As evident from her beautiful smile, Feli’s crooked tooth is gone, but her passion for helping patients achieve healthy smiles is alive and well. Feli has been a cherished assistant for Dr. Azling since February 2001, and her dedication and proficiency has led her to become the back office team leader as well as our OSHA Compliance Coordinator. Feli’s motto is “Be true to yourself, help others, make each day your masterpiece, make friendship a fine art, and give thanks for your blessings every day.”

  • Lupe Sepulveda—Registered Dental Assistant

She graduated from the Bryman college in 1992 and then completed continuing education at the University of The Pacific for cosmetic reconstruction, restorative veneers, and implant dentistry. Lupe has been by Dr. Azling’s side since March 2006 and continues to be a remarkable ambassador of his practice. Lupe enjoys staying fit with zumba, yoga, weight-training, and golfing with her husband, Jimmy. She loves to karaoke and her favorite movie is “Family Man” which makes her cry every time.
