Meet The Team


Patient Coordinator

 Denise has worked as our Patient Coordinator since 1981 and grew up in Anaheim with her two older brothers, Dr. Chris and Dr. Vince! She now calls Huntington Beach home with her husband and three sons. Her favorite thing about working in the office is seeing the patients and their families grow up and working with the nicest dentists and staff. Denise enjoys watching football, walking or going for beach bike rides, going to her son’s volleyball games, and ANYTHING that involves family! As a former Registered Dental Assistant, Denise is an incredible asset to our office (and her brothers and niece, Dr. Annie) and looks forward to continuing to provide a great dental experience at Nagel Dentistry.


Patient Coordinator

 Rachel started working at our office in 1992, and since then has transitioned from Registered Dental Assistant to Patient Coordinator. Her favorite thing about working at Nagel Dentistry is our patients. She says the office is like a second family and knows the patients are the best! Rachel loves spending time with her three kiddos (and even loves getting her teeth cleaned!) and will welcome you with a kind, friendly smile next time you’re at the office.


Patient Coordinator

 Judy has worked as a Patient Coordinator since 1999. She lives in Orange and enjoys spending time with her grandchildren. You can count on Judy for a warm welcome to Nagel Dentistry and can help answer any front office questions with a smile.  Her favorite thing about the office is working with the best dentists, patients and staff. In her free time, she likes working outside and spending time with family and friends. 


Patient Coordinator

 Margo resides in Costa Mesa and has been with Nagel Dentistry since 2003. After receiving her Registered Dental Hygiene license from Santa Rosa College and her Bachelors of Science in Food and Nutrition from Cal Poly SLO, Margo worked as a dental hygienist here at the office. She has now switched over to working as a Patient Coordinator and loves seeing our patients when they come in; by now, it’s like visiting with old friends! Margo’s guilty pleasure is a Starbucks Vanilla Latte and she loves going to the movies, reading a good book, baking, and time spent with family and friends!


Dental Assistant

 Alma started working at Nagel Dentistry in 2015 after receiving her Registered Dental Assistant license from Orange Coast College. She lives in Costa Mesa with her husband and two daughters and enjoys running, cooking, and traveling with her daughter’s soccer team (she has spent 14 years on the soccer fields!) Alma is reliable, outgoing, and helpful and appreciates our well-organized office and working with the nicest people.



 Christine has been a hard-working Registered Dental Hygienist with our office since 1989. She prides herself as a people person and is always there to answer any hygiene questions for our patients. In her free time, Christine tries to keep up with her standard poodle and her grandchildren and practicing her hobbies of crafts and painting. She appreciates the similar dental care philosophies at Nagel Dentistry and looks forward to seeing you at your next cleaning!


Dental Assistant

 Wendy attended CSULB and Concorde Career College and has worked at Nagel Dentistry since August 2015 as a Registered Dental Assistant. Her favorite thing about working at the office is meeting patients and mixing the impression material! Wendy always keeps busy at the office, and a fun fact: has hiccups every day! In her free time, she enjoys cooking pasta, baking cupcakes, arts and crafts, and karaoke.



 Eileen has been a Registered Dental Hygienist at our office since 2009. She has been sharing her friendly, considerate demeanor in the dental field since 1982; originally working as a Registered Dental Assistant after receiving a degree in science from OCC and her RDA license, she then received her RDH license from Cypress College. Eileen has lived in Fountain Valley for most of her life and enjoys cooking, baking, baseball, chocolate, ping pong (she’s pretty good!), and traveling with her family.


Patient Coordinator - RDA

 Diane lives in Huntington Beach with her husband and has been a part of Nagel Dentistry since November 2007. After graduating from Rosary High School and CCC, she was a great assistant to Dr. Vince; she now works in the front office while studying at Cypress College to become an RDH. Her favorite thing about the office is the people; she says “we’re like one big family and the patients are great!”  She has a great sense of humor and is a long-time Kings fan. She enjoys camping, DIY projects, sitting on the beach, and being Aunt Diane to her 18 nieces and nephews



 Rita has worked at Nagel Dentistry as a caring and determined Registered Dental Hygienist since March 2015. She graduated from West Coast University with a BSDH degree and now lives in Whittier. She enjoys time at the office because her co-workers and doctors are great to work with and she loves being able to help patients with oral care every day.  Her favorite activities include hanging out with family (she’s expecting her first child-a baby boy!), watching sports, baking, traveling and going to the gym.



Katie joined our practice 25 years ago and has been a friendly, loyal, and devoted hygienist to our family of patients since. She graduated with an Associate in Sciences degree in Dental Assisting, receiving both Registered and Certified licenses from Cypress College in 1983. Katie continued her education and was licensed as a Registered Dental Hygienist in 1987. To advance her knowledge further, she worked with a specialist in the field of Periodontics for 4 plus years following graduation. Katie enjoys spending time with her husband and two children.  Fun fact - Katie raises mastiff breed dogs.
