  • Brenda Escobar
    Registered Dental Assistant

    Hello, my name is Brenda Escobar. I was born and raised in El Salvador and came to the United States when I was 19 years old. I went to school at Cañada College for my ESL classes meanwhile, working as a nanny with a wonderful family. In 2017 I transferred to San Jose City college to be able to enter the Dental assistant program and graduated in 2018. My first job as dental assistant took me to Milpitas and then moved to this office in November of 2020. When I am not at work I love to play soccer, spend time with my family and play with my dog, Quetzal. I am really grateful to be in this wonderful family.
