Simerdeep Brar - Receptionist
"My name is Simerdeep (Simmy) Brar and I am originally from Fresno, California. I have obtained two bachelor's degrees in both Biology as well as Human Development from UCSD and I am now attending the UCSD School of Medicine. I have always had an interest in the healthcare field and strive to one day become a pediatrician. I enjoy traveling, any type of outdoors activity, and spending time with my friends and family. As an individual, I truly enjoy helping others, a factor that provides great motivation and adds to my determination in becoming an excellent physician. I have already acquired so much valuable knowledge by working with Dr. Chadkewicz and I am excited to further expand my horizons and learn many great attributes from such a wonderful dentist and team!"
Jacqueline (Jackie) Ortega - Registered Dental Assistant
"My name is Jacqueline (Jackie) Ortega and I've been working in the dental field for about four years now! I'm excited to announce I recently got certified as a Registered Dental Assistant (RDA). I'm glad to achieve my goal. I first took an interest in dentistry as a child as I was always the kid who wanted to get my teeth cleaned before any of my two younger sisters. I am originally from San Diego. I enjoy traveling, sky-diving, trying different foods, and dolphins (my favorite animals)!! I also recently got married, and my husband and I have two wonderful dogs (who can sometimes be little pests... but we love them very much). In our free time, we like to take a drive or fly out to visit our friends and family up in Northern California. I really enjoy working at this practice because assisting and getting to know all of our different patients makes me smile! In addition, I also get to work with a wonderful team that makes our job a really fun place to be!"
Tanya Wise - Registered Dental Assistant
"My name is Tanya Wise. I was raised in Michigan and moved to California as a teenager. It was after high school that my interest in the healthcare field developed. I attended a community college where I completed the Dental Assistant Program in 1995. Since then, I have enjoyed the dental field, assisting with patients. I joined Dr. Chadkewicz and the team in 2013. She has a gentle touch and always strives for optimal oral health of all her patients. Our dental team is caring, friendly and we all have the same goals! In my spare time I enjoy playing the piano and spending time with friends and family!"
