Meet The Team
Kim - Office Manager
I handle our patient’s treatment plans and oversee all day-to-day operations. My goal is to make sure our patients are taken care of, have a good understanding of why they are here and that their questions are answered. I try to make their periodontal visit as pleasant as possible. I have been a part of the office team here for over 22 years. Dr. Gohel is an extremely skilled doctor who truly loves what she does and is wonderful to work with. I also have the pleasure of working with Dr. Sinks. Both doctors have an amazing chairside manner and you can see they really love what they do!
When I’m not here in the office, my husband and I spend a lot of time outdoors and are starting to travel more now that our kids are all grown.
Debbie - Patient Care Coordinator/Team Manager
With over 30 years of dental management experience, I am honored and excited to work with such an amazing team!! Each of us are caring, friendly and knowledgeable, and we bring our unique personalities and love of dentistry into the office to make each patient’s experience a wonderful one.
I am a Point Loma native and enjoy the beach, hiking, walking my 2 adorable pups Milo & Millie and spending time in Nor Cal visiting my son (wine tasting).
Being of Portuguese decent, I love the little Portuguese community I live in celebrating our heritage and traditions. I live a very blessed and balanced life!
Amanda - Surgical RDA/ Patient Care Coordinator
My first interaction with new patients is to make them feel comfortable and make sure they have all the information that is available to them. I assist Dr. Gohel and Dr. Sinks in surgical procedures focusing on the job to make sure we achieve a safe and successful outcome. Following up with post-op patients gives me a chance to see how they are recovering and if there is anything I can do to help them along the way.
We all care so much for each other and our patients that it really doesn’t feel like the typical office environment; we are all friends. Dr. Gohel and Dr. Sinks are very generous, making sure to thank everyone around them, both patients and staff and go out of their way to show their appreciation for the staff.
Outside of work I am a BIG sports fan… GO PADRES!! I enjoy hanging out with friends, family and spending time with my husband and our two cats.
Veronica - Registered Dental Hygienist
My career as a dental health professional began in 1989 in Flagstaff, AZ where I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Dental Hygiene. As a native Californian, I chose to begin my career in San Diego in General Dentistry. After 10 years I realized my passion was in Periodontal Dentistry so I concentrated my practice in this area. I am thrilled to be working with Dr. Gohel and Dr. Sinks.
In 28 years of practice, I enjoy most of the relationships I share with my patients. My ultimate goal is to guide my patients with education. Together we will achieve your dental goals, no matter what they may be.
My philosophy: Let’s work together and not sweat the small stuff!
Margaret - Registered Dental Hygienist
Providing excellent dental care, educating patients on their periodontal condition to achieve optimum oral health as well as listening to the concerns and individual needs of patients have been my professional philosophies for over 27 years.
It is an honor and privilege to work with Dr. Gohel and Dr. Sinks. Not only are they outstanding periodontists, their genuine concern and compassion toward our patients are truly commendable.
I’m an avid reader, indoor cycling enthusiast and Kundalini yoga practitioner.
My greatest joy is being with my husband and daughter.
Dee - Care Coordinator/ Insurance Specialist
I was born and raised in San Diego and have been working in dentistry for 39 years, starting as a dental assistant and then moving to the front office. I have enjoyed working with wonderful doctors and caring for patients. The field of dentistry has evolved over the years, especially on the insurance front. I have worked to educate myself on the continually changing insurance policies and regulations to ensure the patients are maximizing what their insurance offers. In my free time, I enjoy hiking some of San Diego’s abundant trails, working in my yard and playing with my dog Link. I am also involved with my church Pathways.
Aixa - Surgical Dental Assistant
I love coming to work everyday. The environment here is conducive to learning and growing. We’re all willing to help each other. Dr. Gohel and Dr. Sinks are amazing. They treat us and their patients with the same love and respect.
Outside of work I love spending time with family and my dogs. I also really enjoy bouldering at grotto
Denise - Surgical Dental Assistant
I have been assisting in surgery for over 20 years. I love helping people develop great oral health and making patients smile. I understand people are often anxious coming to the periodontist, so I reassure them with a warm smile and positive attitude. I assist Dr. Gohel and Dr. Sinks during surgical procedures while supporting our patients. Both doctors are wonderful to work with. I have been working with Dr. Gohel since she graduated from her residency program, moving with her when she relocated to her current Clairemont office.
Outside the office, I enjoy spending time with my husband and son, drag racing, quilting and gardening.
