Dr. Julianne Shaw - Associate Dentist

After recently moving from North Carolina, I am excited to join the dental team at Orange + Magnolia Dental Studio.  I was born and raised locally in Tustin and it is wonderful to be back home.  I received my Doctor of Dental Surgery from the University of the Pacific in San Francisco and furthered my education by completing a General Practice Residency at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.  My goal as a dentist is to provide our patients with the knowledge and education to maintain and improve their oral health. While prevention is my focus, if treatment is necessary, I strive to provide quality, patient-centered dental care with a gentle touch.  Aside from the technical aspects of dentistry, my favorite part of the profession is getting to know each of my patients and creating a comfortable environment while also giving the patient a voice to feel included and informed.  

I love to learn and I attend many hours of continuing education each year to ensure that I stay up to date of the technology and techniques essential to providing quality dental care for my patients.  Giving back to the community is also very important to me.  While living in North Carolina I had the opportunity to give back by providing dental treatment to elementary school children in rural communities who lacked access to dental care.

When I am outside of the office, I enjoy spending time with my husband and dog, Skip.  I've trained and certified Skip as a therapy dog and on my days off I volunteer with him at a local elementary school in their reading program.  My husband and I love being outdoors and enjoy running, hiking, and going to the beach.   I look forward to meeting everyone and caring for their smile.  

 

 

Sue - Office Manager and Front Desk

I greet our patients as they arrive, and make sure they’re comfortable in our reception area. It’s important each person understands they’re in a safe place, and that we’re here to help them, whatever they need. Every patient has different concerns, and in talking with them, I learn better how to ensure they have a positive visit. In addition to welcoming patients, I also answer our phones, verify a patient’s dental insurance, and schedule their appointments and recall visits. Additionally, I handle our billing and collection matters. I enjoy working in a dental office where we put the patients at the forefront of everything we do.

I’m the mother to three great kids and six grandkids. My husband of 10 years and I live in Long Beach. We love being with our family, and enjoy camping, traveling, and watching football.

 

 

 

 

Janice - Dental Assistant

Aloha!  It’s a pleasure to spend my days assisting the Doctor in caring for our patients. I enjoy our conversations and learning about each person’s life during their visits. Our practice is focused on personalized care, and that means we actually have time to talk and laugh with our patients, which builds wonderful relationships. As the dental assistant at Orange + Magnolia Dental Studio, I take X-rays and impressions, and prepare the treatment area for procedures. Then I sit chairside, helping the Doctor as she cares for our patient, ensuring the person is relaxed and comfortable throughout. I love the new technology we have at our office and seeing healthy and smiling faces at the end of a visit.

I was born and raised in Hawaii.  My boyfriend of 7 years and I moved to the Mainland and we are loving all that there is to do in California!  I love to explore new places and being adventurous.  On the flip side, I like to learn and experiment with all things beauty and makeup!

 

 

Nina - Registered Dental Hygienist

As the Registered Dental Hygienist at Orange + Magnolia Dental Studio, the best part of my job besides  helping patients treat and maintain their oral health is providing patients with a comfortable experience during each of their visits.  I appreciate the team atmosphere at our office because we help each other perform our jobs with ease and in turn, this creates a more pleasant environment for our patients. 

I grew up in Massachusetts and moved to Southern California at the age of 15.  I am married and have 2 cats.  In my free time, I like to host dinners for family and friends, paint, decorate cakes, read, swim, go hiking, kayaking, paddle boarding, and camping.  I also volunteer my time as a hygienist at the Central County Medical and Dental Health Expo, helping low income and underprivileged families receive proper dental care.
