Welcome to the Cali Kids Dental Family!

Our Team


I can honestly say that I enjoy my job! Working in the front office at Cali Kids Dental gives me the opportunity to combine my craving for working with intricate numbers and insurance situations with my inner social butterfly. One minute I’m sorting through a complicated insurance claim, and the next I’m crawling around in the movie room with one of our energetic patients.

The greatest reward for me is when I can help a parent utilize their insurance to it’s maximum potential for the purpose of providing the best care possible to their little ones. Dr. Priestley instills such confidence in their abilities, it is easy for me to assure our patients and parents that they are in good hands. I can honestly say that I believe that the children in our practice are under the best care possible. I have two children, and it is without a doubt that I whole-heartedly trust their dental health to the skills of this office.


I have worked in this office since 2006. Working in a fun, knowledgeable, and professional environment makes me excited about coming in everyday. As part of the front office team, I get to give impeccable customer service to our patients by listening to their needs.

The most rewarding part of working with Dr. Priestley is watching the children arrive for their appointment excited to be here. They feel comfortable and safe in our office. I love taking a call from a former patient that is all grown up and now has a little one of their own. The memories they share with me are a fabulous reminder why I am proud to work in such a wonderful and caring office. I have two children on my own, Jacey and Cash. As a family, we enjoy outings such as Fairytale Town and the Zoo. We also enjoy exploring tide pools in Monterey and the beautiful lake in Tahoe. Needless to say my children are patients here and always look forward to their next dental appointment. I am grateful that my children are not fearful of the dentist but instead excited about their visits and understand the importance of regular dental checkups. This is a gift I am proud to have given my children.


I have 34 years of Dental experience and love what I do! Going to work with a great, confident dental team that loves children and want them to have the best dental experience possible is vital to me. I am a mother and grandmother of two precious granddaughters. I understand the worries and concerns of a parent and what a gift our kids are to us.

Dr. Priestley is a gentle, caring person who love kids and has high standards in the field of dentistry and life. I chose to work for an individual that I felt comfortable referring my family, friends and their kids to. Our office is very professional and we have state of the art equipment and utilize the most current restorative techniques. This environment of knowledgeable staff and a positive attitude will benefit your little darlings.
