Gabriela, Office Manager

I have served as the office office manager at Cervantes and Prado Dental Care since 2012. I was introduced to the dental field in 2009 with very little dental experience but with lots of enthusiasm toward learning everything I needed for this new environment. I discovered the joy of helping patients understand the importance of good dental care and learned that the number one priority of both Doctor Cervantes and Doctor Prado is 100% patient care. It is very rewarding for me to see our patients leave our office with a smile and looking forward to their next dental appointment. I strive to make every patient’s visit as comfortable as possible as well as help them understand their dental treatment and financial options. I am honored to be part of the Cervantes and Prado Dental Care team and enjoy working with two extraordinary dentists.

Since working with Cervantes and Prado Dental Care, I learned that maintaining excellent dental care requires more that just brushing, flossing and going to the dentist once or twice a year. It requires having a dentist you can trust and one that is committed to working with you to help maintain a healthy, beautiful smile that lasts a lifetime.

When not in the office I love spending time with my family and friends. I enjoy music, dancing and learning new things.

Hi my name is Marcella Lane. I have been working as a Registered Dental Hygienist since June 2000. I truly love my profession. I enjoy working with our patients to motivate and encourage them to improve their oral health. It is extremely gratifying to see patients progress in learning how to take care of their teeth and gums. I have been a member of Drs. Cervantes and Prado’s staff since July 2015. Both dentist are very warm, kind and caring and possess the ability to help apprehensive patients feel at ease.

Besides working in our practice to promote oral health, I also volunteer in the community to promote oral health. I have worked in sealant clinics in elementary schools in Richmond and Vallejo. Sealants aid in the prevention of cavities in young children. I have also volunteered in large events that serviced the dental needs of underprivileged residents in Oakland and Vallejo. These opportunities of service have truly been rewarding to me.

In my spare time I enjoy hiking with my husband, reading novels, playing the violin and photographing nature.

We are always accepting new patients and I am looking forward of sharing my enthusiasm of oral hygiene with you. I hope to meet you soon.
