Our Team

Melva

Registered Dental Assistant

I have been a team member with Dr. Esterkyn since 1995 and have been in the orthodontic field since 1979. The best part of my role on this team is watching our patient’s start out nervous and unsure of what to expect to seeing the transformation in not only their smiles but their confidence as well.
When I am not helping create gorgeous smiles I enjoy crafting, crocheting and spending time with my family.

Donna

Registered Dental Assistant

My dental career started 25 years ago but I have been on Dr. Esterkyn’s team since 1999. I enjoy building relationships with patients, helping them through each step. For patients who are feeling a bit fearful about a visit, I talk them through the process and stay by their side. Seeing their smile at the end when they realize it wasn’t a big deal is very rewarding!

In addition to English, I also speak Tagalog, which is always helpful. I have been married for 26 years, and I have two daughters and a granddaughter. I am very active in my church and work out to stay healthy.

Cristie

Office Administrator/Treatment Coordinator

I have been part of Dr. Esterkyn’s Orthodontic team for over 25 years. I enjoy my role in helping coordinate our new patients into treatment. I am here to help guide you from your first visit with our office all the way to your perfect smile. At your initial consultation, I will explain your treatment plan and answer all your questions.

I love helping people make that first step towards having the healthy beautiful smile they have always wanted. It is an honor building relationships in the area in which I live. I raised my two daughters in Brentwood and I will always consider this area my home. When I am not in the office, you can find me enjoying outdoor activities with my family and “Golden fur-babies.

Denise

Financial Coordinator

I’m very proud to have been a part of Dr. Esterkyn’s team for 24 years and counting. It is truly amazing how the years have flown by. I’m beyond grateful to have the opportunity to meet so many incredible patients and parents. My most favorite moments are when I’m out and about and run into a former patient from years past. So fun!

I’ve been a resident of Brentwood my entire life. My grandson is actually 7th generation in Brentwood. My husband and I have watched our children go through Brentwood schools and graduate from Liberty High School. In my spare time I enjoy working in my yard, being a bit crafty, and loving our Chocolate Lab, Beau. However, spending time with my grandson Jack is #1.

Tammy

I have worked in the dental field for the last 21 years. I joined the team at Delta Smiles in 2019 and I love seeing our patients’ smiles change and their confidence grow. It’s wonderful when patients tell me they smile more often because of their beautiful smile!

Annie

I feel blessed to be working with this awesome orthodontic team. I have worked in the orthodontic field since 2008 and love working with the patient and parents. Hopefully I can be that smiling face that will answer your questions and facilitate your appointments.

I am originally from Canada and speak French. I have two beautiful daughters and in my spare time like to travel, explore California and work out, hike and taste wine. Isn’t that a given for a Californian?

Debby

Registered Dental Assistant

I love watching the positive changes we make in our patient’s smiles and the effect it has on their self confidence. I’ve been working in the Orthodontic field since 1977 and have been part of Dr. Esterkyn’s team since 1999. I absolutely love my job and feel blessed to be working with such a great group of people.
When not working, I enjoy spending time with my five grandchildren, working in my garden, quilting and riding my Harley with my sons.

Rosie

Orthodontics is my passion! I have been an Orthodontic assistant for 17 years. I joined Delta Smiles in June 2020. From the moment I walked in, I knew this was my forever home. My favorite part of Orthodontics is making and building friendships with each of my patients and seeing their face light up when they see their new smile at the end of treatment. In my spare time, I enjoy going to church, making memories with my three children and spending summer days poolside with my family and friends.

Tabby

I take pride in the cleanliness of our office and the health of our patients. Using medical grade cleaning supplies and sterilization equipment. It is my mission to make sure that all instruments, work areas and all surfaces are thoroughly sterilized and sanitized for your safety.

On a more personal note: I along with my husband have twin boys who are in college. My favorite place to be in the world is anywhere on a beach with my family and friends just hanging around together laughing.

Katie

I love working in orthodontics! It has become a huge passion of mine. I have been in the dental field for 13 years. I enjoy seeing patient’s final results and making friendships in the process. It is joy working with people of all ages and watching their smiles transform.
I stay very busy with my 5 children and all the adventures that we pursue. I am a big kid at heart and enjoy swimming, traveling and amusement parks.

I look forward to seeing new faces daily!
