Lisa administrative staff

Lisa Kreider

Senior Practice Administrator

Who’s that friendly voice on the other end of the line? That’s Lisa, of course! From marketing to scheduling and everything in between, Lisa’s vast experience in dentistry and joie de vivre helps to create a truly individualized experience for our patients in a one-of-a-kind atmosphere. When she is not in the office she spends her time doing winery and live music events, hospitality is her super power.

Her favorite activities include dining, live music, working out, meditation, and travel.

Patience, staff member

Patience O’Connor
RDA, Sedation Coordinator

Patience (yes, it really is her name!) was born and raised in Sonoma County and loves to take advantage of the sites and all the great food it has to offer. She jumped into the dental world almost right out of high school and never looked back! She joined the team in 2018 and quickly realized that her career as an RDA could flourish and grow for many years to come. She completed her training to become an Extended Functions RDA, allowing her to craft composite fillings, seat crowns, and take on many more challenges during surgery and complicated treatment. She prides herself in being efficient, professional, and friendly. It is important to her to help educate patients, so they can be healthier and happier with a great smile! Teamwork really does make the dream work with a little Patience!

Financial Coordinator and Insurance Liaison

Ashley started with the practice in 2018. She has since moved to Florida but is still an integral part of the team! Ashley is out insurance wizard who takes great pride in providing our patients with the best information possible regarding the financial aspects of treatment. When she’s not in the office, she’s a super involved baseball mom for her twin boys. In fact, she recently inherited a baseball team and is now a mom to 7!

Desiree, front desk staff


Patient Care and Hygiene Coordinator

Desiree helps patients each day to schedule their regular hygiene exams, acts as a liaison when people have questions about their treatment, and truly loves seeing patients leave our office with a smile they love! She is originally from Kansas. Her favorite hobby is Muay Thai, a beautiful martial art! She loves the strength it gives her both mentally and physically.

Melissa Dental Hygienist


Dental Hygienist

Melissa is our newest registered dental hygienist. She’s joined us after relocating from Sacramento to Lake County to support her husband’s flourishing career in the wine industry. With a B.S. degree in Kinesiology from Long Beach State University, Melissa pursued her calling in dental hygiene and earned her A.S. in Dental Hygiene from Sacramento City College. She brings her passion for health, excellent patient care, and fitness to our office. Her dedication to improving oral hygiene and her unwavering commitment to her patients’ well-being is a true testament to her work ethic. Outside of the office, Melissa delights in cooking, working out, hiking/camping, and indulging in music. We are thrilled to welcome Melissa to our family and look forward to seeing the invaluable contributions she will make to our practice.

Kelly Dental Assistant


Registered Dental assistant

Kelly has been with Dr. Jordan’s practice for 8 years, since day one! She’s our “Sunshine on a Stick” and when you meet her, you’ll understand why! Kelly has been an RDA since 1982 and excels at making our patients comfortable while offering true kindness and compassion to each and every person around her. She takes incredible care of her teammates and her patients, bringing her positivity and creativity with her wherever she goes. Her favorite part of her job is seeing transformation; making a difference in patient’s lives by giving them beautiful and functional smiles. Outside of the office she enjoys spending time in Tahoe with her husband, adult children, and dog. They love hiking and kayaking as much as possible. Grandma Kelly has two grandchildren, ages 2 and 4, who bring her all the joy one could ask for!
