Meet the Team


Registered Dental Hygienist

I was a dental assistant for a short period of time until I decided to pursue a career in dental hygiene. I have been a dental hygienist for 8 years now and love it. I enjoy connecting with patients and educating them about their oral health.

On my spare time I enjoy working out, going on hikes, spending time with friends and family, and working on home projects with my husband. I’ve been married for 2.5 years and have a beautiful 2-month-old baby boy and beautiful 9-year-old step-daughter. We enjoy most of our evenings in our backyard watching movies and love taking weekend trips to Pacific Grove or South Lake Tahoe.


Registered Dental Hygienist

I am a graduate of Sacramento City College with 15 years of Dental Hygiene experience.  I enjoy educating my patient on their dental health and seeing them at least twice a year. 

On the weekends, I am a basketball mom for my family of four.


Registered Dental Assistant

I have been in the dental filed since 2012 and absolutely love it! Growing up I have always loved making people smile Being in the dental field gives me the opportunity to help give patients the confidence to smile at others. It is the most rewarding part of my job.

When I am not working I am making new memories with my husband, daughter and puppy. We enjoy quality time together watching movies and being outdoors. 


Registered Dental Assistant

I have been a dental assistant for 4 years, but I have been pursuing a career in the dental field for even longer. My ultimate goal is to become a Dental Hygienist in the future. I learned very quickly that I enjoy my job because it has helped me live out the things I feel most strongly about. I believe in showing kindness and compassion in every aspect of my life. I am able to provide a caring hand while also providing great care to our patient while making connections along the way. Being apart of Dr. Diehl and Dr. Payne's team is an honor.

Outside of work, I enjoy volunteering at my church and being involved in all my kids activities. I am a wife and a mother to our 2 beautiful children. We enjoy spending time outdoors and experiencing new things


Registered Dental Assistant Extended Functions 2

In my 8 years of dental experience my priority has always been to give the best experience a patient can have. I enjoy and love my job to the fullest. It has made it easy for me to learn the most I can in the field, so I can educate the patients and people I come in contact to the best of my knowledge. I took myself to the next level of education by becoming a Dental assistant with Extended Functions, which in few words means I will be relieving the Dentist from doing your fillings, cementing your permanent crowns and among other things.

On my time off, my boyfriend and I like spending time with our big family so there is never a dull moment. Whether it be hanging out outdoors, taking walks with our dogs, lounging in the living room, facetiming with my family in Texas, watching movies and sports or even playing video games. Every day is a blessing and rewarding so we like to make the most of it every day.


Benefits coordinator

I have been in the dental field for 2 years and always enjoyed going to the dentist as a young child. It is a dream come true to be working for one. The best part about my job is being able to connect with every patient that walks through the door and educate them about their oral health. I believe my purpose in this life is to help people and I love doing that with Dr. Diehl & Dr. Payne.

Outside of work, I am a mother to a beautiful little girl that keeps me on my feet. We are either watching movies or enjoying nature together. When I have free time you can find me writing in my journal or reading a book.
