Dr. Melinda Reynard

I received my Doctorate in Dental Surgery from the University of the Pacific in San Francisco in 1989. Post-graduation, I spent 3 years in the San Mateo Dental Society Peer Review Committee to ensure a high standard of care throughout our community. I also received my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the University of Texas in Austin, and my Master’s degree in Nutrition and Food Science a few years later. With the extensive knowledge of diet and health related conditions, I am able to provide a more holistic approach to treating all patients. Over the past three years I also served as Adjunct Professor at the University of the Pacific Dental School in San Francisco.

Most importantly, I love my patients and my profession! There is nothing that pleases me more than seeing the perfect smile of a satisfied patient. Patients enter the office and become part of our families. With a state-of-the-art office and a highly qualified staff, we will provide you with a positive, nurturing dental experience.

Dr. Melinda Reynard

In my spare time, I enjoy being outdoors, whether it is swimming, hiking, practicing or teaching water fitness or yoga and traveling. I also enjoy all types of crafts, reading and listening to audio books, experimenting with healthy recipes, and spending as much time as possible with my wonderful family and friends.

Dr. Ladan Abolmoluki

I was born and raised in San Carlos and I found my passion for dentistry at a very young age. Coming from a family of locally owned restaurants in the San Carlos area, I was very persistent in following my dreams. I recently graduated from Western University of Health Sciences dental school in Pomona, CA and joined Dr. Reynard's office in January 2017. I enjoy making a difference in people’s lives, whether it is easing patient’s anxiety or simply taking them out of pain. My goal is to make the patient feel comfortable and relaxed while providing outstanding dental care. I believe dentistry is a combination of artistry mixed with the fundamentals of science and I truly enjoy creating beautiful smiles every day.

In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family and friends either BBQ’ing or exploring the beautiful Bay Area. I also enjoy baking and creating new and healthy recipes from scratch.

I love working at Dr. Reynard’s! I get to know and help our patients, and watch those who were once shy or embarrassed about their smiles begin to smile and laugh more, letting their teeth shine through! I love meeting new people and enjoy learning about their unique stories. Our patients are the best!

I relocated to California from Youngstown, Ohio, 36 years ago and never looked back. I moved to California where I worked in technology, pharmaceuticals, and then found dentistry --returning to school to become an RDA. I’ve been with Dr. Reynard for nearly 19 years now, where I manage the practice and office.

When I’m not working at our practice, you might find me at the gym before dawn, or relaxing at my new vacation home in Sonora with my husband. I enjoy spending time with my daughter sharing stories of her successful life and adventures. Also, I keep up with my son and his wife in Southern California and the exciting journeys that lie ahead for them. Life is good!

Marianne

Dental Hygienist
I am Dr. Reynard’s dental hygienist. I moved to the Bay Area from Rhode Island in 1984, and started working with Dr. Reynard in 1993. My favorite thing about the office is the fun patients I get to treat each day. They really are more than just patients, and like the office staff, have become an important part of my life. With such a serene and beautiful view from every office, it never feels like I’m really inside an office. It’s almost like being in a park, watching the animals frolic!

I enjoy time at the beach with my doggie, Maggie. With one of my sons recently graduated college and the other still enjoying college life, a dog is a great companion and gets me outside to enjoy all California has to offer.

Dorene

Dental Assistant
A lifelong native, I grew up here and love living in San Carlos. I became a dental assistant in 1984, and have worked with Dr. Reynard since 2009. In addition to friendly people and a great city to work in, I now have such wonderful co-workers and a great boss! Dr. Reynard is a wonderful dentist and she cares about her patients dental needs.

When I’m not in the office, you might find me walking my miniature Poodle and my Pekinese, working out at the gym, hiking or at the beach hanging out with friends!
