Meet the Staff

Katie Lee, RDH

After graduating from the University of California, Santa Barbara and working in the environmental sciences field, Katie decided to go back school and attend dental hygiene school.  Katie earned her DA at Foothill College and then went to SJVC Rancho Cucamonga where she got her AS in Dental Hygiene.  She treats each of her patients like family and enjoys seeing them in the office.   What amazes her most is the young children who come in with trepidation and with care and encouragement, they leave the office having a positive, memorable experience.  When she is not cleaning teeth, Katie can be found by the pool or cuddled in a soft arm chair with a book in her hand.  Her favorite dental invention is the cavitron and she loves the motto, "floss the teeth that you want to keep". 

Sherene Kirkpatrik, RDH

Sherene joined Dr. Lee's practice as one of the members of the dental hygiene team.  Her dental career began when she was in high school.  Helping others have a healthy mouth became her career goal and she pursued her RDA from San Jose City College and then went on to get her RDH from Foothill College. She loves that Dr. Lee's practice is dedicated to families and that the entire team is determined to do their best to ensure that the patients receive the best quality of care.   Using her skills to make each of her patients comfortable and trying to make each patient's experience a positive one, gives her great pride in her job.  She feels very fortunate to be working for such an ethical and competent practice and loves to come to work each morning. Her favorite dental invention is the laser.  When she is not working, she loves spending time with her husband of 27 years or her children.  She also enjoys traveling to see the world and gardening. 

Linda Lowpensky, Treatment Coordinator/Office Manager

Linda is an integral part of Dr. Lee's successful practice.  She started as a dental assistant learning the ins and outs of dentistry, and then transitioned into her current role as Treatment Coordinator/Office Manager.  Her many years of experience makes the patients feel at home when they come into the office.  Her exceptional management skills and knowledge base make the patient's feel like they are part of this dental family.   The support of Linda's family is immeasurable and because of them, she comes to work ready to greet you with a heartwarming smile. 

Lakien Zamarron, DA

Lakien is so excited to be part of Dr. Lee's team.  She takes great pride in her work and it is evident in her skills with Dr. Lee.  Patients love her ability to make them comfortable during their treatment.  She is a huge Star Wars fan so her favorite dental saying is, "May the floss be with you".  She loves her two adorable dogs, Paul Anka and Obi and when she is not playing with them, you can find Lakien enjoying her time at ComicCon or relaxing in the comforts of her home.
