Meet the Team
We recognize that all of our patients are unique and deserve to receive dental care that reflects their individual needs. Our experienced and talented dental team is committed to working with you and your family to create a comfortable, stress-free, and rewarding dental experience every time you visit our practice.
We are pleased to welcome you and your family, and we look forward to working with you.
As the office manager, Montana has the intimidating responsibility of coordinating patients treatments, insurance claim processing, and the general day to day running our practice. Montana went to dental assisting school in Colorado, earning her certification as a Registered Dental Assistant. She has worked in orthodontics, periodontics, endodontics, oral surgery, and general dentistry, all of which has given her insight into our patients’ needs. Her mission is to make sure patients start their appointments with a smile and leave with one as well!
Montana has an adventurous spirit. She loves to camp in new places, usually planned on a whim. Her favorite saying is “NO plans are the best plans.”
Diana began her career as a dental assistant, gaining six years of experience before continuing her education and earning her Associate’s degree in Dental Hygiene. Joining our team in 2017, she sees patients on a regular basis for dental cleanings and education regarding good oral health habits at home. She enjoys building relationships with patients so they are comfortable and enjoy their visits to our office. Her smile is a wonderful encouragement for patients to feel capable of having great oral health.
Diana is a mom of two young boys. Her husband is a helicopter pilot and is always on the go. They love being together as a family and being outdoors, especially going on walks, Jeeping in the mountains, boating on the lake, and camping by the beach.
Jessica began her career in the dental field as a dental assistant in Maui, Hawaii, where she worked for ten years. In 2011, she enrolled in the dental hygiene program at Carrington College in Sacramento. Jessica realized her dream of helping people when she became a part of Dr. Kania’s team in 2020. She loves that dental hygiene allows her to help patients with their oral health needs, and live healthier lives in general, by educating them on how to care for their teeth and smile.
Jessica grew up right here in Auburn. Most of her free time is spent with her husband, daughter, and yellow lab, Gunner. They enjoy soaking in sunshine as a family, exploring the foothills, and anything in the water.
