Meet the Staff


We are so proud of our team:



Natalie - Patient Coordinator & Registered Dental Assistant

Hello, my name is Natalie. I have been working in the dental field since 2004. What an amazing time it has been. Although I have experience in all aspects of the dental field, I love helping our patients work to achieve the smile of their dreams. Educating our patients and working side by side with Dr. Ko is so rewarding! I always look forward to meeting new patients.


 Jennifer - Registered Dental Hygienist

I graduated from Loma Linda University with a BS in 2005 and joined Hemet Valley Dental Care in 2006. I love learning and continue my education focusing on caries prevention and treating periodontal disease. For me, there is no greater joy than in educating my patients. When not in office, I enjoy being with family, friends and especially my nieces and nephew.

Michelle- Registered Dental Hygienist

I have been a Registered Dental Hygienist since 1993 and am currently working on a masters in public health nutrition at Loma Linda University.
I am also active in the Hemet Valley Community as a member of the Assistance League, and the American Association of University Woman. When not at work or school, I enjoy time with my family and friends. Oh, and I love running!

 Erin - Registered Dental Assistant

My name is Erin and I have been working for Dr. Judith Ko since 2008. I attended Concorde College and am happy to say, I graduated at the top of my class in 2007. I enjoy our patients and helping them to achieve their goals of having beautiful and healthy smiles. I love working in the dental field because I like teeth!


Amber - Registered Dental Assistant 

I have lived in the valley for more than 30 years, and was delighted to join the team here at Hemet Valley Dental Care. My favorite thing about dentistry is the ability to see the transformation that occurs when a patient decides on a cosmetic change. I love helping people and know that the x-rays I take are the first step. On weekends and evenings, I enjoy spending time with my family.
