Norma Acosta - Office Manager/Treatment Coordinator
Hello! My name is Norma and I have been in the dental field for over 20 years. I started as a Business and Finance ROP student and then went on to get my RDA license in 1994. I have been working with Dr. Peng for over 10 years. I am happily married and have three children, ages 2, 8, and 10 years old. My family and I enjoy the outdoors, hiking, and riding our horses, Midnight and Princess. In my spare time, I go to the local elementary schools and promote proper brushing and flossing techniques. When time permits, I also help out at my husband’s business, an Auto Body Shop in the city of Irwindale.
Reiko Vargas - Appointment Coordinator
Hello, my name is Reiko. I am very proud to have been given the opportunity to be part of such a wonderful office. I have over four years experience in the dental field, and enjoy what I do. I recently moved to area with my fiancé from San Diego. On my free time, I love nothing more than spending quality time with friends and family.
As a team member, I strive to provide our patients with the most up to date options in dentistry and always approach their dental needs gently and attentively. I feel it is of great importance to educate our patients so they feel confident in making informed decisions. As a new patient, both you and your family can rely on our entire practice to make your dental experience one of a kind!
Roy Ando - Registered Dental Hygienist
Hello, my name is Roy Ando. In 2007, I received my Bachelors of Science in Biology degree from La Sierra University. In May of 2009, I graduated at Loma Linda University where I received my Bachelors of Science in Dental Hygiene. Throughout my life, I have enjoyed selflessly serving others in various countries around the world. So far, I have been a part of three international mission trips – Mexico, Philippines, and China.
On a more personal note, I consider myself a very simple man who enjoys the simple things in life. As a result, I love relaxing at scenic places while drinking tea with friends and family. I also love to eat and cook … and eat what I cook. I love singing and playing the piano. I thank the Lord for getting me to where I am today because without him, I know I would be lost. I am quite proud to be a part of this compassionate team. As a clinician, I am dedicated in preventing oral diseases and maintaining oral health through patient education. Here at Dr. Peng’s office, we not only care about each patient’s teeth but we care about each individual’s well-being as well.
