WENDY WILLIAMSFront Office
Hello! My name is Wendy, some of you may recognize me from when I started at Dr. McCarthy's office back in 2002. Six years and four kids later, I went part time, then decided to take some time off. (As an employee, not as a patient!) My entire family drives from Simi Valley for our dental care because Dr. McCarthy and the rest of the staff are the best! Now that my kids are older and more independent, I am back in the front office full time, and it is so good to be 'home'! I look forward to seeing all the familiar faces and meeting plenty of new ones!

YVONNE ESPINOSADental Hygienist
I became involved with dentistry in 1999. I was a senior in high school at that time, trying to decide what I wanted to do and I signed up for a certification course in Dental Assisting, and I was immediately drawn to the field. The combination of science & artistry intrigued me and I continued my education to become a dental hygienist in 2007. Working with Dr. McCarthy the past 4 years has been a great pleasure. Every staff member is dedicated to their work and providing exceptional care in a safe and comfortable manner. We love what we do, and I am so grateful to be a part of this team.
