Most of Libby’s family members are in Michigan and Florida, so the Advanced Dental Care community has truly become like a family to her over time. Her hobbies include traveling, sampling great food and wine, and comedy. She is also a total morning person and loves waking up before the rest of the world when it’s quiet.

Kim has been a member of our dental team for over three years now. Originally from Westminster, she attended Cal State in San Bernardino before studying dental hygiene at West Coast University. Today, what she enjoys most about her job is being able to educate patients about their oral health. It is very important to her that they learn what is going on inside their mouths and how to best prevent periodontal disease!
Kim comes from a large family of six who are always loud and in each other’s business – there’s never a dull moment! Her favorite hobby outside of work is scrapbooking her memories so she can go back and reminisce later about the good times in her life. Additionally, she enjoys traveling, doing yoga, shopping, and watching shows on Netflix. She came to the United States from Vietnam at a young age and can still speak, read, and write the language fluently.

She has also received certified training in lasers and advanced continuing education in Invisalign and sleep disorders as well. She can’t wait to provide YOUR idea of a perfect dental experience!
Misty is from Acton and recently married the most amazing man in the world. They are the proud parents of a rescue dog from Tijuana named Chika and look forward to having human children as well within the next few years.

Being able to contribute to someone having a healthier, happier smile is also amazing.
Originally from Los Alamitos, Lisa has a wonderful, loving husband named Stefan and two beautiful, crazy boys named Ethan and Westin.

For her, the secret to a great smile is to be as proactive about preventive care as possible, which includes attending regular checkups and cleanings. She treats all patients like friends and family and would love to welcome you in soon.
Ivy was originally born in Vietnam but grew up in Orange County. She has two children at home.
