Place to Call Home

Our “dental home” is created to be an ongoing relationship between your child, you the parent and all our experienced people. We want to be a resource for answering all your dental questions as well as monitoring your child’s oral development and growth. We emphasize preventative dentistry, make referrals when appropriate and provide your child with a familiar place in case of emergency needs.

Prepare for Your First Visit

If you have a young child, you are encouraged to stay with your child for their first visit. It is important to develop a sense of trust between our dental team, you and your child. 
 As your child gets older and more comfortable with our folks, you may encourage your child to come back on their own so that our team can develop a trust and rapport with your child.

Our Team

Debi

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. Seman and Dr. Priestley instill such confidence in their abilities, it is easy for me to assure our patients and parents that they are in good hands. Between the two of them, 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. Seman and 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.

Chelsey

I can honestly say that I love my job! I get to combine my love of children with my passion for dentistry. I love going to work each day because I know I get to have fun working with wonderful doctors and amazing kids. Before I became a Registered Dental Assistant for Dr. Seman I started as his patient at 1 year old. The best part about my job is getting to interact with the children. I love teaching them about oral hygiene in a fun interactive environment. The kids have a great experience and enjoy coming to the dentist.

Dr. Seman and Dr. Priestley are very compassionate and patient which puts the children at ease. Our little patients are better patients than most adults. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my adorable nieces as well as being outdoors camping, fishing and relaxing with my friends and family.

Kelly

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. Seman and Dr. Priestley are both gentle, caring people that love kids and have high standards in the field of dentistry and life. I chose to work for individuals 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.
