My name is Sharie Danekas. I am ‘patient coordinator’ for Dr. Richard Feinberg. I have worked for him for eight years, and I have been in the dental field since 1974, starting as a dental assistant. I enjoy working with patients and helping them achieve a healthy wonderful smile.

I am a native of La Mesa with three beautiful daughters and two granddaughters. My extra time is spent going to the movies, watching football, or spending time with my family and friends.

Judy has been a dental hygienist for 39+ years. After graduation from the University of Minnesota she headed “west”…..first to Arizona and then on to California. She has been practicing dental hygiene in La Mesa since 1982. She has worked in private practices, Indian health clinics and the Navy dental clinic in Coronado. She is a member of the ADHA, CDHA and the La Mesa County Dental Hygienists’ Society. When she is not educating the patients about their oral health, she enjoys volunteering with the La Mesa Natural History Museum as a “whaler” and goes out on the ocean on a regular basis. She also enjoys walking, hiking, camping and biking. Recently she took a bike and barge trip from France to Belgium. “Keeping busy” is her motto and that is the key to a long life!
