Hi my name is Yekta, and I have been working with Dr. Perlaza for the past 17 years.  I received my license as a registered dental assistant (RDA) from Concord Carrier Institute in 1991.  Several years after I attended a special program at UCLA and obtained my certification as registered dental assistant on extended functions (RDAEF), and this allowed me to be more involved with dental procedures with our patients. I love to help our patients with all their dental needs and I am always ready to answer all their questions. Dr. Perlaza has always made continuing education a priority in our office.  I attend educational seminars and dental courses that keep me informed of all the latest procedures.  I enjoy my job, most of all I enjoy helping others.  So let me know how I can help you.  I love helping every one to have a great smile.

Hello, my name is Walter and I am one of the new additions to this family of dental professional. I have been involved in the dental field since 2007 when I graduated from School of Health Careers located in Fort Lauderdale, Florida as an Expanded Function Dental Assistant (EFDA). My dental career has been, and still is very gratifying. Everyday is a new experience and there is always something new to learn. One thing that I really enjoy about my job is being able to interact with my patients, listen to their concerns and help them with whatever needs they should have. I am sure that you will find our office to be caring and attentive to your needs.
Hi my name is Cynthia Rivera and I am an RDH. I joined Dr. Perlaza’s team in 2004 after my graduation from Pasadena City College. I briefly moved to Texas, and on my return I was offered the position back. Currently, I am enrolled to start the RDH Alternate practice at West Los Angeles College. This degree will allow me to serve the home bound and convalescent home patients. I am an active volunteer at Remote Area Medical (RAM). This Association of volunteers provides free medical and dental services to those that can’t afford health services. The two loves of my life are my two sons Elliot 14, and Seth 4. I enjoy music, movies, dancing, outdoors and running. The latest book I read was The Help, I also enjoy reading biographies. I tried to live by “The Golden Rule” my interpretation is “Treat others as you consent to being treated in the same situation”.
