  • Lisa Post, RDH

    My dental journey began in Nevada, during my junior year of high school, when I started working part time for our family dentist. This path eventually led me to the Dental Hygiene Program at Sacramento City College, where I graduated (along with classmates Kelly and Kathy) in 1989. In September of the same year I joined the awesome team here at Peters Family Dental! It's true what they say about time... it really does fly! I can't believe I am on my 30th year at this fabulous office. I feel blessed to have developed great, long term relationships with my patients and teammates. It's hard to believe that a 'part time, after school' job turned into a 35 year (and counting) professional career.

    Having grown up in the country, I am really a cowgirl at heart. I live up in the mountains with my husband and in my free time I enjoy riding my horse and spending time with 'the kids'... 2 dogs, a horse and a parrot...OH MY!

  • Karen, RDH

    Hi there! My name is Karen and I hail form the real 'Northern California'... Smith River only 3 miles from the Oregon border where I grew up as a farm girl. College brought me to Sacramento where I put down roots after graduating. I have the distinction of being the longest playing member of the Peters Family Dental team, working here for over 33 years.  I have developed many long term relationships with patients and fellow staff members. I love 'catching up' and sharing in the the lives of my patients during their appointments. I am thankful for the opportunity to be part of this great dental team. 

    My husband I have recently enjoy watching our daughter get married to a wonderful young man and look forward to the next chapter in our lives. I have stayed true to my roots and continue my country living on 16 acres in El Dorado Hills with my husband, 2 dogs, 2 horses, 2 cats and an abundance of wildlife.

  • Lisa J, RDH

    This year celebrates my 29th year here at Peters Family Dentistry. I started my dental career as a Registered Dental Assistant and continued on to become a Registered Dental Hygienist in 1985. I have experienced life long relationships with both our staff and patients. I am so thankful that I have found this great office. It is a place to be for a lifetime!

    I have enjoyed 34 years of marriage to my husband Rick, and we have two amazing daughters ages 23 and 26. I have to say I really am enjoying my girls as young women! I also enjoy a passion for photography, so when I'm not working on maintaining smiles as a dental hygienist, I am capturing smiles from behind the camera. It's a great combination of careers, I am truly blessed.

  • Kelly, RDH

    Hi, my name is Kelly and I am a native Sacramentan! In fact, I grew up just a couple of miles from the office. I am also a college classmate of Lisa P. and Kathy. When Karen went on maternity leave, I covered a day a week for her, which soon led to a permanent position with this great team. Wow! That was 27 years ago! My co-workers are also my friends and I can not put into words how great 'Dr.Stacey' is as an employer and dentist. Let's just say she is 'top shelf'!

    Away from the office you'll most likely find me enjoying time with my 2 kids...or I should say 'young adults'!  My daughter is a kindergarten teacher and my son is a civil engineer.  During the summer the hubby and I enjoy the mountains, Fort Bragg and just hanging out at home. During my down time (what is that?) I like to curl up with a good book, a great glass of wine, and some awesome chocolate (It's ok. I brush and floss after)!

  • Lucy, Financial Coordinator

    My name is Lucy. It's hard to believe I have been a part of the dental profession for over 35 years! I have been the financial coordinator here at Peters Family Dentistry since 1998, and I will be the one to assist you with your insurance needs and answer any question you may have regarding financial arrangements. There are so many reasons why I enjoy working in this office... a caring Dentist that really listens to our patient's concerns and a great group of teammates top the list!

    Outside of the office I have enjoyed an equally full life raising three sons, which have blessed me with 7 amazing grandkids. Wow! What a blessing indeed.

  • Kathy, RDH

    I started in dentistry when I was 15, volunteering in a dental office after school. After high school, I became a Registered Dental Assistant and worked in an orthodontic office for 2 years. I graduated from the Dental Hygiene Program at Sacramento City College in 1989. I can't believe that was thirty years ago!

    I began working occasionally in this office about 26 years ago, during other hygienist's maternity leaves and vacations. Throughout my career I have worked in general dentistry, as well as working several years in a periodontal specialty group.  I returned to Peters Family Dentistry in 2003 and have really enjoyed the family atmosphere of our office.  It is fun having patients that we have known for so long, who are now bringing in there children and grandchildren!

  • Connie, RDAEF

    Hello, my name is Connie and I am no stranger to the dental profession.  I have been a Registered Dental Assistant for 28 years and am proud of having achieved my licensure in Extended Functions.

    Born and raised here in the Sacramento Valley, I now reside in Elk Grove, with my husband Chris.  I have a 30 year old son who has blessed me with two amazing grandsons.  When I'm not at work, I enjoy spending time with my family especially in the summer by the pool. 

    I'm thrilled to be a part of this fabulous team and look forward to meeting you!
