Michele Connolly
Office Manager & Treatment Coordinator

As the office manager of this dental practice, for the last eight years, I have many hats to wear but my most important job is the care of our patients. It is my personal goal to make sure each and everyone of our patients feel welcome from the minute they walk into the door to the minute they walk out, happy and with a smile on their face. It is important to me, and the entire staff, that our patients get the highest quality dental care, in a comfortable and safe environment, and all treatment planned is explained and all costs are discussed and agreed upon upfront, nothing hidden. At anytime before, during, and after treatment if you have a question, need something explained, or just need a receipt for your FSA, just ask. I am and will be your office advocate. You will be happy you chose Santa Teresa Family Dental. I know I am I’ve been a patient here for over 30 years.

Shabnam Turiali
Registered Dental Assistant

My name is Shabnam Turiali and I’m a Registered Dental Assistant (RDA). I received my certification from the UCSF School of Dentistry. I studied at San Jose City College and at the Central County Occupational Center (CCOC). I have worked in the dentistry field for the last 10 years on children and adults. I love working as a dental and health professional. In September 2015 I received my certification as a Hearing and Vision Screener for children ages 3 to 5 years old. I do contracting work with Kidango, Inc a non-profit childcare agency. There I screen children at the various preschools they have in hearing and vision. I also work with contracted doctors as a medical assistant. On a personal note, I am married and have 2 sons who both are in college. In my free time I love cooking, sewing, hiking and listening to music.

Mariangela Little
Scheduling Coordinator & Dental Assistant

I am a graduate from School of Dentistry of Central University of Venezuela. I moved to California in 2015 with my husband and since then I have been working as a dental assistant in various dental practices. I am very passionate in engaging with people, making long lasting relationships and educating people to keep good oral hygiene. During my last job, I was fortunate to meet and work with Dr. Gauri Madaan who taught me how to evaluate, plan and consider the best treatment plan for each individual patient. I am very happy and pleased to be part of the Santa Teresa Family Dental practice and look forward to use my passion to learn and grow by her side.
