RDAEF, CDA, Office Manager

Michele has been an integral part of our practice for over 20 years. She attended the College of San Mateo and graduated from their dental assisting program in 2001. While Michele worked to receive her dental assisting degree, she actually began working in dentistry much earlier in life. When she was in high school and age 16, she began a program called “Dental Careers.” While her classmates worked at the mall on holiday break, she was working in a dental office. This truly gave her a head start in life, and she is happy to work in a well-rounded and family-oriented dental office. Her years of knowledge and experience help our office to run efficiently, as does the great communication of our team. She always has fun but gets the job done.

“I appreciate everyone I work with and respect them and the knowledge they have in this field.”


Registered Dental Assistant

Beatriz graduated from the dental program at College of San Mateo in 2020. Shortly after graduating, she was given the opportunity to work alongside one of her instructors and the great team at Dr. Hermansen’s office, and she has never regretted her decision to do so. Beatriz takes every opportunity to keep learning and to expand her skills.

On the days she is not working in the office, her time is spent caring for, and playing with, her son. She also loves putting together jigsaw puzzles — the more pieces the better!


Registered Dental Hygienist

We have enjoyed having Jacqueline, or Jackie, on our team for over five years. She received her bachelor’s degree in dental hygiene from the University of Hawaii. She loves being a part of a practice with such friendly staff and great patients.

“I would like to offer my best dental skills and knowledge to my patients.”

When she is not working, Jackie loves to hike and explore different national parks. She especially enjoys being in the woods and admiring the majestic creation. She also has a wonderful husband and two boys, who are both in college.

For over a decade, Jan has contributed greatly to the well-being of our patients. She enjoys the many people involved in our practice, from the office partners to the staff. Outside of the office, she enjoys skiing, tennis, gardening, cooking and yoga.

“I motivate patients to stay healthy.”
