Meet Our Team
Johanna “Joe” Herrera
I’ve been working with the doctor for 6 years in September. When I am not at work, I enjoy Street art and music. My special power is solving all the problems at the office and the best thing about my job is interacting with our patients and seeing them leave with a smile!
I love to sing to our nervous patients. My specialty is catering to the needs of our elderly patients who with the years have grown to love me and always ask for my assistance. Out of all the dental assistants, I have been by Dr. Rodriguez’s side the longest and we continue to grow together.
I’ve been a dental assistant for the last 14 years in the United States. I Love natural green juice blends and Paulo Coelho. You can
always count on me to hold your hand if you’re nervous about being at the doctor.
