From the moment you step through the doorway, you’ll be greeted warmly and treated like family throughout your visit here. Even as you check out and finish the financial logistics, our team is always ready to help make your experience as smooth and stress free as possible. Get to know each member of our team by reading their bio information below!
Originally from Valley Center, Darlene studied at the University of Southern California for her dental hygiene degree. Today, she has been working in the oral healthcare field for over a decade! When it comes to what she likes most about her job, she’d have to pick being able to meet so many new people every day and getting to know the patients well over time.
Darlene is happily married to Dr. Addy, and they have a little son named Jackson together. Outside of the dental office, she loves traveling, going to the beach, exploring new parts of San Diego, doing mini triathlons, exploring new restaurants, spending quality time with her son, and cheering for the San Diego Padres. She also loves country music and considers herself a “country girl” at heart!
Katie originally hails from Wisconsin, and she attended college at the University of Wisconsin-Madison before coming to the West Coast. Today, she’s been working in the dental field for over a decade now, and she loves so many parts of her job, from the wonderful staff members to the friendly patients to being so close to the beach!
Outside of work, Katie and her husband Bryan have a daughter named Madison. The rest of her family still lives back in Wisconsin. Whenever she isn’t busy at the dental office, her hobbies include taking kickboxing classes, practicing Pilates, going to the beach, hiking, baking, planning fun date nights, and taking her daughter to places like Disneyland, Legoland, and more.
Taylor is from the Riverside area and attended dental hygiene school at Pasadena City College. She is an RDHAP, which is an alternative practice license that allows her to visit patients who have special needs, are homebound, or need to be treated in their homes for other reasons. What she enjoys most about her position at Carlsbad Beach Dental is building such strong relationships over time with patients as she cares for their oral health needs. Her coworkers are awesome too!
Taylor and her husband just celebrated a year of marriage, and they have a large joined family. In her spare time outside of work, she enjoys watching/playing sports, being active, traveling, and doing anything that’s related to the beach. She also grew up practicing martial arts and still knows quite a few moves.
Andrea received her assistant training from the Riverside County of Education and is also certified in CPR. Today, her career in the dental field spans over eight years and counting. She really enjoys working alongside such a supportive, friendly team each day at Carlsbad Beach Dental. Being so close to the coast is a big plus as well!
At home, Andrea has a fiancé named Jose and a son named Javier. Whenever she’s not busy at work, her hobbies include spending quality time with loved ones, taking her son to the beach, exploring new restaurants, and going on road trips. She’s also a very crafty person and loves planning parties.
Carolina is thrilled to be one of our newest team members, helping patients of all walks of life with different dental health needs while assisting Dr. Addy. She goes above and beyond to create a genuinely comfortable atmosphere for each new arrival!
