As a dental hygienist Stacy works together with colleagues and dentists to provide valuable oral health needs to patients. Stacy began as a dental hygienist in 1993.

While working for David Marshall DMD in Milpitas Stacy received “The Best Dental Hygienist in Milpitas” award twice. For Stacy those awards confirmed she had chosen the right career.

“I am a married mother of a two and a half-year-old son, which means when I am not doing dishes, I am changing diapers. I love being a mom and I am so blessed that I am able to work three days a week, so I can enjoy these short, wondrous years.”
WHY I LOVE MY WORK:
“I love developing relationships with patients and look forward to their return visits. I enjoy following their lives and hearing about accomplishments, jobs, family and vacations. I thrive on their happiness. I feel privileged to be in a profession that I truly enjoy.”
WHY WE’RE UNIQUE:
“Yamamoto and Lee offers top quality care. They are very friendly and thorough with answering patients’ questions and concerns. I think it is very rare to find a dental office that puts the needs of their patients first instead of focusing on the almighty dollar.”
