Heather_D.jpgHeather Davis, RDA, Office Manager

Heather is a Registered Dental Assistant and has been in dentistry for over 20 years. With her experience in the back office assisting patients as well as front office management, she understands the flow of a dental practice. Her goal is for patients to feel cared for and comfortable from start to finish. Having her own smile transformation as a teenager with braces and whitening, she can relate to how a beautiful, healthy smile can make patients feel more confident and she enjoys being a part of that transformation.

Heather is also Board Certified in Holistic Nutrition and owner of Solid Nutrition, seeing clients privately in the Brentwood and San Ramon community. She teaches people how to eat clean, remove toxins and live a healthy balanced lifestyle. Her overall passion for health blends well with dentistry and nutrition. In her free time, she enjoys taking her kids to the ocean, reading, spin classes and yoga.
