Trina, Co-Practice Administrator/ Supervisor
Trina joined us in 2010, bringing over 13 years of dental experience to our office in the areas of administrative and clinical support, management and training. Prior to that she was a Field Account Manager for Pac-West Telecomm, Inc. and Grainger Industrial Supply. At Pac-West Telecomm she was named top sales person of the year five years in a row. Her dedication, passion and management expertise have added great value to our organization. One of Trina’s goals is to serve others to create “wins” for both patients and employees, and she strives to do this every day. She likes the family atmosphere at Jackson Creek Dental Group, and the fact that we are very involved in our local community. She has also taken on sharing the job of Practice Administrator, responsible for the day-to-day, behind the scenes running of the practice.
When Trina is not working at the dental office, you will find her out hiking, biking or camping with her family. They also enjoy doing a lot of traveling together.

Mary, Insurance Coordinator
Mary brings over 30 years of dental experience to her new job as Insurance Coordinator. She most recently was the Supervisor/Patient Coordinator for Dr. Frey at Amador Dental Specialties where she worked for over two years. She graduated from Merced Community College in Merced, CA and began her career as an RDA for a periodontist in Merced. Over the years Mary discovered she had a true passion for accounting and started a new dental career in the administrative side of dentistry at Kids Care Dental Group in Sacramento, holding the position of Billing Office Manager/Administrator.
After moving to Amador County, Mary did a lot of research about local dental offices and liked the idea that employees had been working here at Jackson Creek Dental Group for a long time which meant that the doctors really treated their patients and employees right. She was looking for a practice that she could have a long term commitment with, one that was progressive and one she could share her extensive dental experience with.
Mary likes being outdoors, spending a lot of time hiking, camping, gardening and traveling. She tells us her next big trip will be to see the sights in Germany.
Rebecca, Patient Coordinator/Admin Support
Rebecca joined us in 2016, working in our Administrative Department as a Practice Coordinator. She had been working in the teaching field since 2010 as a pre-school teacher in Sacramento. She was also a Head Start teacher in San Andreas and an Associate Teacher at Amador-Tuolumne Community Action Agency in Ione. Rebecca received her AA in Early Childhood Development from San Joaquin Delta College in 2012.
Rebecca and her family were patients here at Jackson Creek Dental Group and she was very familiar with our practice. “I have always had a good patient experience here and thought it would be a great place to work.” She loves the fact that there is so much longevity with the employees and how much everyone loved working here.
Born in Lodi, Rebecca was raised here in Ione and she and her family are long term residents of Amador County. When she is not at work, you will find her hiking, swimming, and doing almost anything that takes her outdoors. She is also very active in her church and belongs to the young adults group and plays softball on their adult coed league.
Ruth, Patient Coordinator/Admin Support
Ruth is joining our team as a Practice Coordinator and Admin Support in the Administrative Department. Raised in Amador County, Ruth graduated from Argonaut High School and has her A/S Degree in Social and Behavioral Sciences.

She says, “My work goal is to expand my knowledge in the dental field while upholding excellent service to patients.”
When she is not working you will see her traveling, hitting up flea markets for cool vintage finds, or camping with her family. She also says that if coffee could be considered a hobby, then that would definitely be on the list!
