Sabrina Akans (Treatment Coordinator): 

Nancy Chavez (RDAEF II):I began my career as a dental assistant in 2010 and was fortunate enough to join Dr. Bunar in 2013 as her lead registered dental assistant. The best part of my job is knowing how a beautiful smile can make such an impact on how a person feels, and the confidence they have. Being able to help someone achieve their perfect smile and working as a member of Dr. Bunar’s team is extremely rewarding- everyday!

Ellie Dehghani (RDH): I have been working as a Registered Dental Hygienist since 2003. I graduated from Cypress College. I love working for Doctor Bunar because she provides the best quality dentistry and cares about her patients health. I enjoy my career a lot  because I feel I am doing something that positively affects people’s health. I have two daghters, 8 and 6 years old and I enjoy spending time with them. I love traveling, cooking and reading.

I received my BS in dental hygiene from Loma Linda University in 2013. I have over 5 years experience working with a periodontist as well as general and cosmetic dentists. Working for Dr Bunar provides the perfect environment to deliver the best possible care. I love keeping up with the latest in dental research, new procedures and hygiene products to better serve you. In my free time I enjoy hiking with my husband, cooking, painting and spending time with my 3 cats and sun conure.
