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 since 2001 and has been a hygienist since 2007. She started with Vista Dental Care when it first opened in 2008 and has enjoyed building relationships/friendships with the patients she has taken care over the years. Her newest transition in the office has taken her away from her clinical interaction with the patients but she still loves seeing all of them when they come in. In their free time, she, her husband, daughter and son 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, Mateo. They love to go to the lake and hike adventurous trails.
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.
Jennifer moved to Reno in 2006 from Penn Valley, CA where she was raised. She studied and completed the Dental Assisting program at Truckee Meadows Community College in 2009 and has been in dentistry since. She joined our team in 2018 where she takes pride in being a part of helping people achieve a smile that gives them confidence. In her off time she loves spending time with her daughter, making jewelry, working out, dancing and being outdoors.
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 husband Alex and their three dogs Allison, Rowdy, and Nova. 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 originally is from Bishop, California where she grew up on the Paiute Reservation. (Fun fact: her name means “deer” in Paiute.) She has been part of the Vista Dental Care team since 2018; she loves the practice’s atmosphere and being able to meet so many new people through her work. Tahedah loves spending time with her husband, Colton and their two children MacKenzie and Axaell; including 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!
Clarissa, Dental Assistant
Clarissa is a Nevada native and moved to Reno from Las Vegas in 2010. She has been in dentistry since 2018 and joined the Vista Dental Care team in 2020. She is passionate about educating patients, ensuring the level of care they receive, and she loves that she learns something new every day.
