Angela Loza, RDH Angela Loza, R.D.H. I grew up in East Bay Area, where I attended Diablo Valley College. In 2010 I graduated with a Dental Hygiene degree, along with, two AA degrees and an AS degree, in which I graduated with honors. As a child, I always had that nurturing instinct, which is why I was drawn to dental hygiene. “My favorite part of my job is educating and instructing our patients, to help them to achieve optimal oral health. When you see patients improve their oral health due to your services, it is a great feeling to know that you made a difference in someone’s life. An added benefit is the great team we have here.” I am a mother of three great kids Xalia, Antonio and Marcello, they brighten my smile every day. On the weekends, we keep busy with my son’s sporting events, going to park, beach or just hang out and watch movies.
