We are thrilled to introduce to you our dedicated, highly trained, and experienced staff. Each member of the staff is warm and caring, and most have been with us for many years. We have an unbelievably low staff turnover rate, so you can feel free to select your clinician, and feel comfortable that your clinician will be the one treating you for each subsequent visit. On the other hand, you are in no way obligated to stay with the same clinician for each visit. Since all of our practitioners are highly qualified, most of our patients just select the clinician who is available at the most convenient time for them.

Linny Wong, R.D.H., B.S. (Monday afternoons, all day Wednesdays, and Thursday mornings)
“Dr. Wong and I met each other while we were attending UCSF School of Dentistry, where I obtained my Bachelor of Science degree in Dental Hygiene. After graduation, we both worked at several different dental offices, learning what we wanted to incorporate and not incorporate into our own practice someday. We then decided to move back to his hometown, Palo Alto, to establish our practice. Many people ask what it is like to work with my husband. It is wonderful, because we share the same work ethic, goals, and attention to detail. Most importantly, we both enjoy what we do."
Vicki Holbert, R.D.H. (RETIRED)
Vicki moved to the Bay Area from Riverside in 1971. After persistent pleas, a dentist at her church convinced her to go into dental assisting. She loved it, and became a Registered Dental Assistant. In 1985, Vicki graduated from dental hygiene school as a Registered Dental Hygienist, and worked for a general dentist for three years. Her interest in periodontal treatment led her to work for a periodontist for 15 years. She now works full time with Dr. Wong and Dr. Beagle. Vicki has worked at our office since 1991. Vicki says, “Would I do it again?? You bet!”
Brent Beagle, D.D.S. (Monday mornings and Thursday afternoons)
We are blessed to have Dr. Beagle as an associate at our office since 1986. He is a top graduate of Loyola University School of Dentistry. He is an exacting and very thorough clinician who takes pride in providing meticulous dental care.

Pamela, the "daughter" of our practice, graduated with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Dental Hygiene from the University of the Pacific in 2012 and has been an enthusiastic member of our team since that time. Not only did she pass her Western Regional Dental Hygiene boards with a perfect score of 100, she has always been known as a "people person" and loves her chosen profession. She will be eager to make your hygiene experience as comfortable and thorough as she can.
Janet Reyes, (Monday through Thursday)

She began her dental career as a Registered Dental Assistant for 9+ years, before working at the front office of a busy group dental practice for 6+ years. She has enjoyed working in both orthodontic and general practice offices because it has enabled her not only to help patients, but also to get to know them as well. Janet says she “appreciates Dr. Wong’s impeccable work ethics, the quality of his work, his thoroughness in educating his patients, and his pure passion and love of dentistry.”
