Shannon - Registered Dental Hygienist / Graduate of Loma Linda University 

My interest and knowledge in oral health and in dentistry has been growing since I was a fourteen year old teenager going through orthodontic treatment. It was at this time that the importance of oral health care was brought to my attention. From that point forward I knew dentistry was the field I was going to have a career in. I started working as a Registered Dental Assistant and went on to become a Registered Dental Hygienist. I have been a hygienist at Dr. Yacoub's practice since 2009, where I have established some great relationships. I look forward to seeing all our amazing patients and catching up with them at their return appointments.

I come from a very close family where we spend a lot of time together. Whether it's drag racing, off-roading or just simply bar-b-queing we are always up to something fun with my yellow lab at my side the whole time. 

Blanca - Patient Care Coordinator   

My interest in dentistry started when I was only 15 years old and I was helping my orthodontist in his office. I attended and graduated from the ROP dental program in Riverside shortly after deciding this was the career for me. I enjoy everything about the dental profession, especially caring for patients and making sure their individual needs are met. 

In the time I have been working in Dr. Yacoub’s office I have seen how important quality patient care is to her and to her entire staff.  I appreciate how welcome they make their patients feel and I see the value in why preventative dental care is so important to Dr. Yacoub and her staff. I love that Dr. Yacoub and her staff treat their patients like family and genuinely care for them. My goal is to make sure your experience in our office is as comfortable as possible and to answer any questions or concerns you may have. 

My wonderful husband Michael and I have been together since 2001.  We have two beautiful children, a daughter and a newborn son! I enjoy spending time doing anything and everything with them from visits to the park to our beloved regular Disneyland trips. I also enjoy reading and scrapbooking.

 Angela - Registered Dental Assistant 

I fell into dentistry quite by accident. I signed up for an ROP program after High School and all that was available was dental assisting which was meant to be because I fell in love with it immediately. I enjoy getting to know my patients, working with people and helping to make them comfortable while showing them that dentistry can be a wonderful experience. 

I have enjoyed working with Dr. Yacoub and her team because they are very personable and she and her team are very focused on making positive changes in our patients'  oral and general health. We love to laugh a lot in the office and this makes for a great work environment. I really think it is unique that Dr. Yacoub gives each patient a flower when they are ready to leave our practice so it is more than just a dental appointment but the patient can enjoy the rest of their day, especially when they look at their beautiful flower. 

I have been with the love of my life, Luis, since we were teenagers and we have a beautiful family of two daughters and one son. We enjoy getting together with extended family for BBQ's, bowling and movie nights.
