Sue - Office Manager

I have been in the dental field off and on since 1986 and have been with Dr. Rhoades since 1998 off and on. I have also gone into dental offices and have assisted in audits, start ups, and hiring . I love management and have dabbled in other fields beyond dental but always seem to come back to the dental field. I love our patients and they become family quickly .I assist with re-care, scheduling, billing, financials and treatment planning. I am CPR certified and hold an X-ray license.

I grew up in Walnut - a suburb of Los Angeles, but I have called San Diego home since1991. I have two sons, a daughter, five grand children and a dog! I enjoy camping, snowboarding and the beach!

I love to be active doing just about anything outside. Roller blading 16 mile loop around the bay at the beach, hiking anywhere, usually Cowels Mt. up and down in 45 min, on a good day, walking. I’ve done the 3 day Susan G. Komen breast cancer walk twice, months of training and fundraising all far a great cause.

Helena- Senior Front Office Administrator

I moved here to San Diego at the end of February 2020 from Fresno, California. I did volunteer dental administration work during my last year of high school until I got hired after graduation in 2013 and I have been a front office administrator ever since. I am always willing to learn whatever was not taught to me but I love talking to patients and getting to know them. Dental administration is my career choice and I’m thankful to do what I love.

I moved down to San Diego to be with my boyfriend and experience the beautiful culture and weather. I am a car lover, I enjoy going to the beach to hunt for seashells and I am currently teaching myself how to cook. I also have an identical twin who still lives in northern California with the rest of my family.

Josh - Registered Dental Hygienist

I am a native Floridian, born and raised roughly an hour south of Tampa in a town not worth googling. There, I spent nearly 7 years as a certified dental assistant absorbing a plethora of knowledge. I have been in San Diego since 2012, courtesy of the US Navy where I served as a Hospital Corpsman. I spent almost three years at Camp Pendleton and the remainder of my contract deployed to the Persian Gulf on a guided missile destroyer. From there, I thought the weather in San Diego was just a tad better than back home with the humidity and mosquitos. So, I decided to stay and make San Diego my new home. I chose to go back to my dental roots and found a private dental hygiene school right here in San Diego.

One secret about me is I hate having my teeth cleaned! Always have. I feel so vulnerable and my teeth a very sensitive. Therefore, I assume everyone else is the same way and developed my own cleaning technique. Gentle, but still thorough. The way I want my own teeth cleaned.

I recently got married to none other than another hygienist, go figure. We’re just a couple of tooth nerds. No, we do not floss each other’s teeth each night. That’s weird. But we do love to learn as much as we can about new products and procedures.

When I’m not in the office, you can find my wife and I out around town stuffing our foodie faces, hiking, riding bikes, being goofy, always goofy, livin’ it up. We love traveling to all sorts of different places near and far so if you have any suggestions, I’d love to hear them!

See you in the chair!
