Jericha later gained dental experience as an assistant for several years in a variety of dental specialties (general, pediatric, and orthodontic) while also serving on a MAC Cosmetics global Impact Team to reach her goal of being a freelance makeup artist.
In her free time, Jericha relaxes at home and enjoys time watching anime and making memories with her niece and nephew. She now aims to perfect the art of being an amateur chef so she can spend even more time eating around a table filled with laughter and friends.
Maria is a reliable and compassionate member of our dental team who moved from Mexico to Seattle with her family over 30 years ago. She has had a life-long interest in dentistry, so she decided to commit to her curiosity and enrolled at Pima Medical Institute. After receiving her dental assistant certification in 2014, she jumped right into the dental field. She has had the pleasure of assisting Dr. Singh since 2019, when she became an essential part of our patient’s comfort and care.
When Maria is not helping Dr. Singh take care of our dental family, she spends her time at home cooking an array of food for her own big family. Her parents have owned a grocery store in Seattle for over 20 years and their involvement in the community helped Maria develop a passion for our economy and small business development. After attending seminars to expand her knowledge and understanding of local government, Maria began giving back to our city by personally helping minority-run small businesses and she hopes to continue to educate herself to learn new ways to support our community.
