Meet the Staff


Office and Mobile Administrator/Dental Assistant

Hello! My name is Vanessa Monterrosa, wife of a very loving husband and mother of 2 amazing children Natalie (8 years) and Jayden (3 years). When I’m not at the office I am spending quality time with my son Jayden. Chasing a 3 year old around is a full time job but it’s worth every moment, he is so loving and everything he does makes my heart melt. My daughter Natalie is a 3rd grader and she enjoys learning, our mommy and daughter time is when I take her to her gymnastics practice, I’m always there cheering her on and letting her know how proud I am of her. I enjoy cooking and spending time with the family, I consider myself a very family orientated person.

I have had the privilege of being part of Dr.Thapar-Dua D.D.S and Senior Smile since August 2011 and I feel like I am part of a family. Dr.Thapar-Dua and the staff are so welcoming and make it easy to fit right in. I enjoy the time that I am working in the office, our patients are so friendly and humble, and they make my job so much better when I see them leave with a big smile on their face and “thank you!.” I look forward to helping our patients and making sure they feel as part of the family as I am.
