Dental Assistant (DA) and Translator
Miriam lives in the East Bay with her husband and three children. Very early in her dental career, Miriam specialized as a surgical assistant, and she contains a wealth of knowledge regarding treatment plans and procedures. With over a decade of surgical and periodontal assisting experience, Miriam joined Dr. Temlock’s staff at San Francisco Periodontics and Implant Dentistry (SFPID) after working with Dr. Temlock for several years at other satellite office locations. She is an integral member of our treatment team, and she is extremely involved in patient treatment every step along the way (from obtaining digital x-rays and cone-beam cat scans to assisting in surgical procedures!) As a safety precaution for all patients, she maintains and updates her Basic Life Support (BLS) certification regularly. On top of her extensive assisting experience, Miriam is also fluent in Spanish, and she utilizes these skills as the office translator in times of need!
