Shahnaz Sohi

I have been a dental assistant for many years now and worked with many different doctors but since I have started working with Dr. Rodriguez, my experience has changed for the better. She makes me feel like I am an esencial part of the team at South Ocean Dental and teaches me something new every day. Being an RDA is not only a carrier for me but it has become a significant part of my life that I embrace and appreciate very much, so I am very glad to be part of a team that allows me to explore my interests and full potential in this field.
I enjoy working with my patients very much and I strive to put a smile on their faces at the end of each visit. Being a part of South Ocean Dental
Team helps me to do just that. I look forward to coming in to work everyday and it is one of the best parts of my day.

Bryanna Medina

Dental Assistant

I am very happy working with Dr. Rodríguez who provided this wonderful opportunity to work for South Ocean Dental. I am currently in my second year at Saddleback college, biology being my major. I received my training as a Dental assistant at California Dental Academy where I obtained my X Ray licensing and CPR training. 

It's been wonderful working for South Ocean Dental. Here we are like family. We enjoy seeing our patients and we love seeing them with new beautiful smiles after they accomplish their treatment. I am looking forward to gaining more experience as a Dental Assistant. I am eager to learn all that I can because my plans are to become a dentist in the future. Or perhaps to be a nurse. I am attracted to professions related to health.


Dental Assistant

Straight Outta’ Cali. I love my state and I love serving my people. I find passion in dental assisting and helping you maintain and achieve a beautiful and healthy smile. Dr. Rodriguez is a fantastic dentist to work with. I enjoy working with her and the rest of my team every day. I enjoy camping, hiking and going off road and exploring new trails in this beautiful state of California. I hope to continue my career in dental assisting and further my education and become a board certified expanded function dental assistant. Always remember, “You don’t have to floss all your teeth, just the ones you want to keep.”
