Rita Kadehjian

Dental Hygienist

I am the Lead Executive Dental Hygienist at Monterey Park Dental. I love educating my patients about achieving optimal oral health. I try my best to help set realistic goals for my patients. So, if you don't like to floss then DON'T. Haha, no but seriously just use a waterpik!

Rona Grupe

Dental Hygienist

My name is Rona and I began my enthusiasm for Dental Hygiene at an early age because I can't imagine a better job than to educate patients about periodontal disease, the treatment of the most prevalent disease of mankind.

The interest I have in dental hygiene, as I learned throughout life, is vital to the overall mental and physical well-being of people.

My favorite part about the practice of dental hygiene is having the opportunity to provide a caring and comfortable experience for all of my patients and educate them about all dental procedures.

Currently I remain active and committed to enhancing my clinical and diagnostic skills through continuing education courses as well as Periodontal Study Groups.

I hold a Bachelors degree in Dental Hygiene and a Masters in Physiology from UCLA, and I am also an active member of the American Dental Hygiene Association.
