Brittany Meradith
Registered Dental Hygienist

 I became a Registered Dental Hygienist in 2007 started working with Dr. Skidmore in 2013.  What I love most about being a dental hygienist is building relationships with my patients while providing optimal dental care and educating them about the importance of their oral hygiene.  I strive to make sure my patients feel comfortable and at ease while in the dental chair and want them to have the best experience possible.  
I’ve been married for 19 years and we have 3 daughters.  We love to do anything outdoors such as snowboarding, wakeboarding, hiking and hanging out at the beach.

Jennifer D. Moss BS, RDH
Registered Dental Hygienist

I started in the dental field in 1988 and joined Dr. Skidmore’s team in 2008.  I am passionate about serving patients with their oral-systemic dental hygiene care.  I have loved dentistry ever since I was six years old when I had my first filling.  Yeah, I thought the dental office was super cool and couldn’t wait to go back for my check-ups every six months!  Shortly after graduating from high school, I started my journey in dentistry in 1988 as a dental assistant.  I became a licensed Registered Dental Assistant in 1989 and proceeded working in Periodontics, General Dentistry and Orthodontics.  I advanced my education at Loma Linda University completing a Bachelor of Science of Dental Hygiene in 2003 and have been practicing dental hygiene with a focus on comprehensive oral prophylaxis and periodontal therapies ever since.  I contributed to educational services as Assistant Professor and as a volunteer at the Loma Linda University School of Dental Hygiene from 2005 to 2015.  In 2017, I advanced my education to acquire licensure as a Registered Dental Hygienist in Alternative Practice to provide dental hygiene services to underserved populations.  In 2021, I completed a Master of Public Health degree from West Coast University.  I strive to provide optimal dental hygiene services putting service before self. 
 
My husband and I keep very busy with acreage and my two horses.  Family is everything to me.  We enjoy traveling as much as possible.  Our grandchildren currently live in Hawaii.  We make every effort to visit them several times a year.  Hiking, painting, off-road adventures, gardening, fitness, and cooking keep me enthusiastically busy between the grind of career and family activities.

Registered Dental Hygienist

I started in the dental field as a Registered Hygienist in 2004 and joined Dr. Skidmore’s team in 2014.  I was fortunate to grow up with amazing dental care from dental professionals that always fed my curiosity.  I was twelve years old when I decided I wanted to be a Dental Hygienist and I never changed my mind.  I love providing exceptional care to my patients and creating the perfect dental experience so they can walk away loving the dentist like I always have.  
 
I love vacationing in Mexico, camping with my family and enjoying the beautiful wineries of Temecula.

My favorite thing to do outside of work is anything that involves the outdoors.  Snowboarding is my absolute favorite.

Laura
Registered Dental Hygienist

I became a Registered Dental Hygienist in 2009 and have been working with Dr. Skidmore since 2016.  I love building relationships with my patients and seeing their improvements in their oral health.  Having a dental fear myself, I also feel I’m able to empathize with patients and love to see them become comfortable coming to their cleaning appointments.  
 
I am happily married and we have 3 boys who I love spending time with and watching them grow.  We love camping and being outdoors.  I enjoy crafting, decorating and all the house projects.  Also, I love DIYing and repurposing.

Mackenzie
Dental Assistant

I started in the dental field in 2020 and at Dr. Skidmore’s office in 2022.   Going to the dentist is a scary thing for most people.  I enjoy making people comfortable during their visit and affirming them in the fact that they are taking care of themselves.  Going to the dentist is so important!
When I’m not helping take care of patients, my favorite things to do are hang out with my family, eating out and going to the beach.

Jamie
Billing Specialist/Patient Care Coordinator

I started in the Dental field in 2003 and joined Dr. Skidmore’s team in 2018.  Growing up, my grandpa was a dentist and I have such fun memories of going to his office for all of my appointments and having a great experience.  However, I understand that going to the dentist office can often be scary and stressful for some.  I enjoy helping our patients feel welcome and comfortable from the minute they walk in the door the the minute they leave.  I love Interacting with our patients and not only helping them with their dental/financial questions and concerns, but also building a personal relationship with them.  
 
Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family.  I am married to my wonderful husband and have a son and daughter.  We keep busy and love being involved with and supporting the kids in their sports and activities.  I also like going to the gym, snowboarding, hiking, days at the beach, going to church, and spending time with my friends.

Patient Care Coordinator

 I began in the Dental field in 2011 and became a part of Dr. Skidmore’s team in 2020.  I love that everyday is different in dentistry.  There is always something new to learn and that keeps it interesting.  I have a calming presence, which helps anxious patients in a sometimes challenging situation.  I am very health conscience and you know they say… Good health starts in the mouth!
Outside of the dental office, I love spending time with my family going to the beach or exploring a new mountain trail.  I am a bit of a foodie and relish a good meal, so it’s fortunate I love a good hike.
