Vieno, Team Captain/Office Manager

San Ramon dental office manager Vieno

Vieno has a passion for leadership, and she says that the most rewarding part of her job is coaching our team to be as successful as possible. This all serves to benefit our patients! She is a registered dental assistant through Everest College, and she has also taken advanced training in leadership and coaching and attended multiple Tony Robbins seminars.

Vieno comes from a large family and is the oldest of nine children. She and her husband are the proud parents of two adult children, a daughter, and a son, as well as a beloved dog and cat. On the weekends, she likes to go boating, wake surfing, paddle boarding, and jet skiing. Vieno also loves anything that has to do with Christmas or Hallmark.

Aquilla, Team Captain/Office Manager

San Ramon registered dental assistant Aquilla

Meet Aquilla Hayes, the driving force behind our practice's seamless operations. Since relocating to the Bay Area in 2011, Aquilla's journey began as an assistant, swiftly rising to the role of Director of Operations for both our General and Specialty departments. With over 15 years of dental expertise, she ensures our patients receive top-tier care while guiding our team to peak performance.

Aquilla spearheads the implementation of cutting-edge systems, ensuring our practice operates with maximum efficiency and effectiveness. Her passion for elevating the patient experience is matched only by her dedication to fostering a dynamic and cohesive team environment.

Aquilla's leadership extends beyond the office walls, where she cherishes spending spare time with her family—her high school sweetheart husband and grade school-aged son. When not immersed in dental excellence, you'll find her engrossed in a good book, unwinding and rejuvenating for the challenges ahead.

In every interaction, Aquilla Hayes embodies the spirit of leadership, dedication, and compassion, propelling our practice forward toward unparalleled success while cherishing the moments spent with her loved ones.
