Meet the Vista Dental Care Team
Jamie, RDH/Office Manager
Jamie is a Reno native and still resides in the area with her family. She attended Truckee Meadows Community College for her hygiene degree, where her class ranked number 1 in the National Dental Hygiene Board Exam. She has been in dentistry for over 16 years and has been a hygienist for over 10 years. She started with Vista Dental Care when it first opened in 2008 and has enjoyed building relationships/friendships with many of the patients she has seen for the last 9 ½ years. In their free time, she and her husband and daughter enjoy the outdoors, going to Lake Tahoe, hiking with their dogs, traveling and rooting their favorite sports teams on.
Bruna was born in Brazil and raised in Reno. She has been in dentistry since 2010 and is dedicated to her patients and to delivering the best care possible. Bruna is tri-lingual and speaks English, Spanish and Portuguese. She graduated locally from Truckee Meadows Community College where she was granted the opportunity to be a part of the Sigma Phi Alpha National Dental Hygiene Honor Society. In her spare time, Bruna enjoys spending time with her son and fiancé. They love to go to the lake and hike adventurous trails with their husky, Bentley.
Amber’s career in dentistry started in 2016. She studied at Truckee Meadows Community College and loves being able to make a positive impact on patients, helping them keep their smiles for a life. Originally from Lovelock, she is married with three children. Her hobbies outside of the office include spending time with family, camping, hiking, and swimming.
I have had the pleasure of being part of the Vista Dental Care team since 2013. I’m passionate about being a patient advocate and staying current on new dental technology. One of the things I enjoy most about dentistry is seeing how changing a patient’s smile can transform their life. To calm fears, answer questions and help make treatment possible, especially in a soothing environment is rewarding to me. In my spare time I enjoy working out, being outdoors, and spending time with my family.
Alexis recently moved to the area from Modesto, Ca where she was born and raised. On the weekends, she enjoys relaxing at home and going to see plays with her boyfriend of 5 years. Alexis has been in dentistry since 2014 where she found that she enjoys interacting with patients and growing strong bonds with her co-workers and patients, as well. What Alexis loves most about this field is that she’s able to help put smiles on people’s faces and to show them how easy keeping up on their oral hygiene can be.
Mandy, Hygiene Coordinator
Mandy has been in dentistry since 2013 and has been at Vista Dental Care since 2015. She couldn’t imagine working for a better dental practice, and is so grateful to work in such a fun and caring environment where she learns something new every day. Her favorite part about dentistry is helping and interacting with patients. She’s originally from a small town in Sierra Valley, Ca and now resides in Cold Springs with her fiancé Alex and their two dogs Rowdy and Allison. In her spare time, she likes sewing and getting crafty, going to the gym, and enjoys stock car races on the weekends.
Tahedah, Patient Care Coordinator
Tahedah is from Bishop, and she studied dental assisting at the Milan Institute. As a relatively new member of the Vista Dental Care team, she loves the practice’s atmosphere and being able to meet so many new people through her work. At home, she has a daughter named MacKenzie, a boyfriend named Colton, two dogs named Poseidon and Oakley, and a cat named Ted. Her hobbies outside of work include fishing, camping, off-roading, and simply being outdoors and exploring new areas. You may notice this when visiting – she actually has two different colored eyes!
