About Us

Meet Our Team

Sonja C.

Office Manager

My name is Sonja I graduated from Dental Assisting School, in 1991. I have had in my career the wonderful privilege of being able to work with several skilled dentists. And Dr. Colleran has fit the mold as well.

I started working with Dr. Colleran in 2011 and since day one I have been impressed with his work and the care he takes with his patients. Not to mention the many days we spend laughing and having a good time at work, as was quoted by a patient she feels like she is coming to Disney Land every time she walks in. Starting in 2017 I changed careers to Manage the office and have been enjoying that challenge as well.

On my days when I am not in the office, I enjoy immensely spending time with Love of my life for 35 years and our 3 beautiful grandchildren, going to the beach and hiking and just having a good time.

Jean S.

Hygiene Coordinator

I have spent my working career in the customer-centric industry, helping to make life better for people just like you. I found Dr. Colleran’s office as a new patient when I moved to Avila Beach from Salt Lake City, last year. My experience with him and the team was beyond exceptional so when I was asked to join the practice as a team member, I said YES, and I am so glad I did.

When I’m not at work, you can find me exploring the central coast with family and friends, riding my beach cruiser, on my paddle board and reading a good book in the sunshine.

I look forward to meeting you and helping you take excellent care of your dental health.

Julia C.

She has local roots and spent many of her early years living in Avila Beach and attended San Luis Obispo High School. She furthered her education at UCSB with a degree in Biopsychology, then later attended dental hygiene school in Southern California and the University of the Pacific.

Julia enjoys everything Central Coast, including its people. You might run into her as she frequents local beaches with her fiance and 3 dogs, hikes local trails, and enjoys local eateries and music venues. In addition, traveling is always at the top of her bucket list. We hope you get to meet Julia and share your joy of pets, food, travel, and life on the Central Coast with our delightful hygienist while she takes excellent care of your oral and overall health!

Denisse R.

Registered Dental Hygienist

Visiting the dentist was one of my favorite things when I was a little girl. I know, right? Who enjoys the dentist? I do! I graduated from dental hygiene school in 2020, I thought it would never end having to go through school through a pandemic was tough. These days I am committed to providing a positive experience for patients and spend a life long journey of learning about the oral cavity so that I can always accommodate treatment to each patient's needs.

When I am not at work I enjoy beach days, playing soccer, reading, hiking, and going to the gym. I was born and raised on the central coast and I am looking forward to meet locals and those who are not local but have chosen the beautiful central coast as their home. Come see us!
