Christine Paulino

Patient Services Manager, RDA (Registered Dental Assistant)

I graduated at the Dental Assisting Program at College of Alameda in 2008 and started working here at Piedmont Dental by Design right after graduation. I worked as an assistant for many years until recently I have transitioned up front to work as Patient Services Manager. My many years in the back caring for patients chair side has helped me in my new role of Patient Services Manager in helping educate patients on their oral health and I have a better understanding of how the practice works together front and back. When I am not at work I enjoy spending time with my husband and kids at family get-togethers, camping, and visiting fun places.

Julie Graham

Registered Dental Hygienist

I have been a Registered Dental Hygienist for twelve years. Throughout those twelve years I have had the pleasure of working with Dr.Herrero and Dr.Martenson here at Piedmont Dental by Design and plan to continue for at least another twelve.  Everyone here is a loved member of my second family.  I suppose you could say it’s my home away from home.  I have been married to my wonderful husband, Ron, for 6 years.  We have known each other since we were teenagers and actually dated for a few months back then.  Ron is a Team Lead/PC technician for Blue Shield of California and the owner of Pacific Coast Computer Solutions.  Together we love outdoor activities such as hiking, jet skiing, 4-wheeling and taking road trips and camping with our 40ft 5th wheel.  We’ll leave the tent camping to the younger crowd!!   We share 6 children together; 3 girls and 3 boys.  It’s kind of like “The Brady Bunch” except there are 5 grandchildren in the mix of this menagerie too!!  What a family!
