After graduating From The University of Pennsylvania Dental School, I returned to California to attend to the failing health of my father. I worked in many different places, but mainly devoted my time to non-profit clinics in smaller rural areas, which allowed me time to be closer to my family, as well as work with those who did not have the benefits of living in a large city. After a few years of working for other dentists it was time to have my own office. I considered many different towns for my practice but Placerville caught my eye because of its hard working people, beautiful landscape and close proximity to Lake Tahoe and Sacramento.
Today, as I look back at my history; where I came from, the people I have met in my journeys, and so on, I can say that I am truly blessed. I have taken the best of two cultures and used them every day to better my life and the lives of others. Life is what you make of it and this is very true of my own life. Each and every day that I work, I give thanks to what I've learned over the years and sincerely enjoy interacting with people.
Hi! I began my career in dentistry in 2006. I started as a receptionist and returned to school for dental assisting certificates, obtaining my license to work in the back office. I've worked as a team leader in both front and back offices for the last 8 years.
When I'm not working, I spend time with my son and daughter, or doing something outdoors. My favorite activities are playing softball or hiking. Every once in a while I take time to kick back in the house and bake cookies.
My name is Kandice and I am a Registered Dental Hygienist. I have been practicing locally since I graduated in 1999 from Diablo Valley College in Pleasant Hill, CA. I am very fortunate to have found a career that I am still passionate about after 12 years of practicing dental hygiene and 19 years in the dental field. I love my profession and can't imagine myself elsewhere. The relationships that I have formed over the years with patients and my co-workers have been a blessing in my life. I love helping people learn bits of dental knowledge that they might not have known and incorporate it into their lives.
When I am not at work I am busy raising my 7 year old son. That takes most of my free time but when I get a little down time I love to practice hot yoga, read, and spend time with friends.
I look forward to my future at Dr. Rahimi's office and continuing to provide quality care along with Dr. Rahimi and my wonderful co-workers. Here's to a beautiful smile!
