Carolyn Parr RDA
I feel very lucky to have walked through the doors of this office in 2008. I am fortunate to work for such a caring and confident dentist. While working with Dr. White, I have continued to grow to become the best Dental Assistant I can be. I care about my patients and see to it that they are comfortable during their dental treatment. I completed the Dental Assisting program at Bryman College in San Jose and earned my Registered Dental Assistant license. My schooling and continuing education has prepared me with the knowledge and skills needed to thrive.
Outside of the office I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I also enjoy scrapbooking, cooking, and being outdoors in my garden.
Samantha Lara RDA
Samantha knows that being in the dental chair can be stressful. She tries to help put patients at ease by being there for them, to hold a hand or offer a blanket all while providing excellent and competent patient care. She values that the patient experience is important to achieving good oral health. What drew Samantha to the field of dentistry was her interest in being a part of a professional environment that focuses on patient care and esthetics, which are all important to Dr. White. Before joining the team, Samantha completed her certificate for dental assisting at San Jose City College and became licensed with the state of California in 2011. She hopes to continue her growth in knowledge and skill with the field for years to come.
When she's not working, Samantha enjoys going on hikes, traveling, and spending time with her dog Pablo.
