Home / About GDC / Our Staff
Of course, our office has the latest technology, a convenient location, a clean and comfortable environment, and even great coffee while you wait! But what really sets a great dental practice apart is the people behind it. Every member of our team takes extreme pride in our profession. We take what we do very seriously, and our goal is to deliver high-quality care that lasts, looks amazing and feels good. The entire staff regularly attends conferences and takes continuing education classes geared toward providing you and your family with ever-improving quality of work.
Our Office Team
Our office team is here to welcome you, and help you every step of the way, from your first call, to all follow-up and re-care visits. If you have questions about any aspect of your treatment plan, clinical or financial, please don’t hesitate to ask us. We’re prepared to give you answers you can understand.
Maria – Insurance & Financial Manager
Most likely, the first member of our team who will be greeting you is the wonderful Maria–our kind and caring, but detail-oriented Insurance & Financial Manager. Maria is a Registered Dental Assistant (RDA) with over 20 years of experience. She has a deep passion for meeting new people and helping educate patients about their best dental options. She has the ability to crunch numbers in one hand, while simultaneously reviewing a treatment plan and answering detailed insurance questions.
Kimberly – Marketing Director
Kimberly is our newest member at Gorman Dental Center! As Marketing Director, she is responsible for the development of strategic planning and implementation of marketing, advertising and patient relations. Kimberly was born and raised in California and graduated from the University of California, Los Angeles (Go Bruins!). She also studied abroad at Cambridge University where she specialized in Social Anthropology. Kimberly loves interacting with our patients and ensuring every patient is always satisfied when leaving the office!
Our Clinical Team
Our clinical team assists Dr. Gorman by offering chair-side assistance and hygiene care. We are committed to your comfort, and we respect your time. If we can make your dental experience better in any way, let us know. We hope that your first visit will be the beginning of a lasting relationship.
AJ – Diagnostic Director
AJ has been a Registered Dental Assistant (RDA) for 10 years. She is skilled in making patients feel as comfortable as possible and providing patients with information on any dental procedure. AJ assists Dr. Gorman in overseeing the TMJ and OSA patients. She operates our diagnostic equipment such as performing JVA, T-Scan, Rhinometer, and 3D conebeam scans. She is directly responsible for maintaining strong communication between our patient’s physicians and updating them on progress for our TMJ and Sleep Apnea patients.
Nancy – Chief Dental Assistant
Our Chief Dental Assistant, Nancy, has been working alongside Dr. Gorman for over 28 years. Nancy truly cares about getting to know our patients and their families, and most of all, loves seeing the transformation in the lives of patients as they improve their smiles, and overall health! When she’s not busy helping Dr. Gorman provide the pinnacle of dental care, she is making friends with everyone who steps into our office. Nancy has a formidable sense of humor, which is a good thing, because she never would have survived 28 years adjacent to Dr. G without it.
Melina – Oral Healthcare Specialist
Melina has been working alongside Dr. Gorman for a year and a half, providing oral care and assisting our patients with their dental hygiene needs. She’s been a Registered Dental Hygienist for over 10 years and enjoys every minute of it! Her favorite part of being a dental hygienist is building lasting relationships with her patients and seeing their progress. Melina is constantly taking courses and attending seminars in order to learn the latest techniques and technology for better oral health care treatment.
Dr. Martin N. Gorman DDS
Last but undoubtedly not least, we have the man who pulls it all together, our head honcho, cosmetic dentist Dr. Martin N. Gorman DDS. A dental health professional with over 40 years of experience, he specializes in Bioesthetic Dentistry, an approach based on decades of intensive study of the optimal natural biologic model. Its focus is on the development of the least-invasive-possible treatments to help less than perfect smiles catch up.
There’s nothing Dr. Gorman dislikes more than “pushy sales people,” so you’ll find none of those here. He also believes that simply managing pain and other symptoms is lazy healthcare. At his office, he treats the root causes of his patients’ issues. We’re not a money-model “drill & fill” office. Marty has the most talented hands and sharpest brain in dentistry. He’s constantly researching the latest ways to provide great care to his patients, and always offers the best and least-invasive treatment option available. Learn more about Dr. Gorman.
