Meet the Team
Diana Robinette - Certified Dental Assistant
After ending a very successful career as a body builder in the 1980s, Diana attended Apollo College (recently renamed Carrington College) for her certificate in Dental Assisting. Her inspiration for change began on a rainy, no, snowy day, while on her way to a body-builder contest, which was uphill both ways. As she was speeding down Central Avenue, a glimmer of hope flashed in her peripheral vision: a beautiful dental school ad. Thus began her long-time career in dentistry.
Currently, while outside of work, she prefers to 'hang out' with family and friends and is the mother of three children. Diana also enjoys hiking, has a passion for music, and Netflix. She also holds a deep love for those little elf e-cards being passed around at Christmas time.
Melissa Mejia - Patient Relations Liason
In her 18 years of grueling dental experience, Melissa has lived and breathed the motto: "The Early Bird catches the worm." She likes to be on time, mostly because people at church stare when you come in late. Despite a degree in Welding technology, she still chooses to stay with us and argue with insurance for our patients.
At home, she has two wonderful teenagers and a caring, loving, husband. As a jack of all trades, she has worked in many different fields, from beauty school to mental health to pediatrics.
Still, she loves dentistry because she believes in it's ability to change people's lives and looks forward to many more years in this field.
Makayla Hancock - Director of First Impressions
I am the friendly face who greets you when you come through the door at Stephanie K Dentistry. As front office and scheduling assistant, I help with financials, payments, appointment scheduling, and am usually the first person to answer the phone.
I am an Arizona native and after graduating high school, I soon realized my passion was in dentistry… no other career could match the excitement! I strive to stay up to date and educate myself with all things dental. I enjoy meeting new patients and their happy smiles at Stephanie K Dentistry. When I’m away from the office I work on managing my addiction to social media and enjoy spending time with my family as much as possible.]]]
