Kellee Alarcon
Kellee Alarcon
Dental Assistant

I was born and raised in Southern California and I am a single mother to an amazing daughter named Khloe, whom I love with all my heart. I went to Dental Assisting School in 2015 and decided to become a Dental Assistant a couple years later in 2017. I have worked as an assistant for 3.5 years and decided I wanted to transition into working in the front office in the dental field. In my free time I like to try and spend as much time with family and friends and obviously with my daughter.My daughter and I like to go to Knotts Berry Farm all the time and it is nice to have season passes so that way it’s nice to go whenever we would like.

Schedule and New Patient Coordinator

I started in dentistry as a Registered Dental Assistant and after seven years transitioned to the front office administration position, which I have greatly enjoyed for many years. I enjoy helping patients feel at ease, cared about and comfortable discussing any of their dental needs. I am proud and happy to work in such a high quality, state of the art dental practice, knowing we are providing the best of care. Dr. Sandler is an amazing dentist and person.
I love my rescue dog, L J, and also farmers markets, spontaneous road trips and adventures and recently took up painting as a hobby.
Looking forward to seeing you and helping you with your scheduling and administrative needs.

Registered Dental Assistant

Hello there! My name is Mayra and I’m an RDA here at Solana Family Dental. I’m a San Diego native and I enjoy the many fun adventures of being a mother to my 4 year old son, Felix and our new puppy Leia! We enjoy traveling, family walks by the many beautiful lakes in our area, and the beach of course! I began working in the dental industry in 2018. Being able to put a smile on our patients’ faces has only made my job 1000x more rewarding following such a difficult year.

Registered Dental Hygienist

I received my Bachelor’s of Science in Dental Hygiene from West Coast University. My goal as a dental hygienist is to promote optimal oral health care as well as provide an exceptional experience for all patients.

I cherish time with family and friends, and when not busy I love to cook, travel and spend time with my soon-to-be husband and puppy, Rolo!

Liz’s Pinkes
Lead Treatment Coordinator
I have worked in the dental field for 19 years. When I moved here from Orlando, Florida I wanted to change careers and luckily found the dental field. I worked as a R.D.A. for 10 years and still maintain my license. I transitioned to the front office and found my fondness for computer programs & dental insurance. Solana Family Dental has Dentrix which is the Porsche of dental programs and I have always wanted to learn this program. Last year, I decided to adopt a Shitzu and we named her Heidi. She loves to run like the wind. Solana Beach is a beautiful place to work & live.
