“There is no other place I would like to be right now, you are all so friendly and nice people.” — Greg Sandala
We would like to introduce you to Myra, your Insurance Specialist and personal dental concierge. Myra diligently gathers your dental benefit information and verifies and reconciles your eligibility and benefit breakdown. It is not an easy task to understand dental benefits and she makes it simple for you by being your own personal “dental secretary”. She researches this information in advance of your appointment so you will know what to expect in coverage and benefits prior to any treatment. She also helps you in filing claims timely and when necessary helping you to get benefits from stubborn Insurance companies. Myra is from Afghanistan, Russia and Germany and speaks all three languages. We often wonder how we were lucky enough to capture this world traveler and keep her in San Diego since 2004. Do you think it’s the weather? Myra is friendly, easy going and open to new things, but more than likely you will find her spending time with family, shopping, watching TV and exercising because she loves to eat – which means she will work hard to make sure you get the benefits to care for you teeth since she can’t do without hers!

When she is not adding a little sparkle to a smile, she’s traveling to new destinations, exploring the outdoors with her puppy named Ace, or visiting unique restaurants as she loves great food.
