Our Team


Adriana Obispo

Clinical Manager

I am a dentist from Venezuela. I have been working in the dental field for more than 20 years. I grew up in a family of dentists and so I think it’s in my blood!

I moved to California a few years ago. Although I am not a licensed dentist in the state of California, because of my love and passion for dentistry I decided to work as a dental assistant. I have recently received my license as a Registered Dental Assistant with extended functions. Advanced Dental has given me the opportunity to grow with the practice over the last few years. I really enjoy meeting new patients and helping them take care of their dental health.  My extensive knowledge in dentistry helps me educate patients about their treatment and its importance. California is now my new home and Advanced Dental is part of my new family.
