Hello, my name is Gina. I absolutely LOVE working with Dr. Scott Newhart and his wife, Lynn. They set the tone for the office and our Team follows through by being welcoming and kind-hearted. I am part of our Front Office team. I have been in the dental field for 10 years now and I find my job is interesting and challenging. I am responsible for verifying insurance benefits, preparing the charts for the next day and checking out our patients after each appointment. My position requires me to be a strong multi-tasker. I love helping our patients and I know they depend on me so I enjoy building a strong relationship with them. When I am not at work, my roles changes to being a wife and mommy. I have 5 beautiful children that I have been blessed with. My life is full and I am grateful! I am looking forward to taking care of you.
Hello, my name is Lillian. I am the treatment coordinator for
Dr. Newhart’s dental office. I love my position because I get to work closely with the doctors during each patient’s examination. Being a Treatment Coordinator is challenging because it takes a lot of experience and knowledge surrounding the doctor’s diagnosis and treatment procedures. Modern dentistry is very exciting because it is high tech and patient friendly, but extra explanation is often needed after the doctor has completed his examination. It is my job to make sure each patient understands all the benefits and options of treatment they are going to receive.
Although I work with our entire front office team, I also need to have a thorough understanding of insurance and insurance codes as well as all the payment options we offer. I like to tailor each presentation to the specific needs of each patient. I really love taking care of people and building trust with our patients. We have a loyal following of patients that have come to us for years and I enjoy those long term relationships.
Outside of the office I am a wife to a great guy and loving husband. I also love being a mom to our three children. We spend a lot of time together as a family. I look forward to meeting you!
Hello, my name is Sylvia. I am part of Dr. Newhart’s front office team. I am an insurance specialist and I take great pride in helping people afford the outstanding dental care that we provide in our office. Mastering the art of claims management requires a lot of experience and dedication to do well. I am still passionate about my job after 25 years because I get to help people understand the complexities of insurance. I take great pride in maximizing their benefits and minimizing their out of pocket expenses. Our patients trust me and rely on me to help them. Outside of the office I am a very active person. I enjoy different church, social and community engagements and I love sharing time with my two children. I look forward to meeting you. I am never too busy to help!

I want to personally introduce Michael to you. He is the office hygienist. Michael and I work closely together to provide each patient with the best possible periodontal health. Michael and our doctors know that all dental health starts with having health gums. Michael graduated from West Coast University, School of Dental Hygiene in 2012 with a Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene. He joined our Newhart Dental team in 2013 with a passion to educate patients about oral health and showing them how to prevent periodontal disease. Michael enjoys getting to know his patients while providing the highest quality care. He prides himself in being gentle yet thorough in his work. He conscientiously heads up our hygiene department and enjoys the full scope of providing oral health care, from pediatrics to geriatrics.
Don’t be surprised if you run into Michael out in our local community. He has a deep seated belief in service and giving back, so he volunteers at health fairs to educate people about the importance of good oral health. In his free time, he enjoys nature outings and spending time with his beautiful wife, family and friends.
By the way, Michael is our very talented in-house photographer. He has taken many of the office and staff pictures that you see on our website.
