Meet The Team
Michele – Office Manager & Registered Dental Hygienist
Michele has been working as a dental hygienist for Dr. Hashimoto since 2006. While her entire career has been dedicated to this office, hygiene is not where she started in the dental field. From 1998, she worked part-time as a dental assistant in sterilization while attending University of California, Davis and then Diablo Valley College Dental Hygiene Program.
Michele is also the office manager, working in the multiple facets of dentistry. Her experiences at Dr. Hashimoto’s office have given her a great appreciation for the hard work it takes to provide the best care possible for our wonderful patients. Over the years, our patients have become a second family to Michele. She always looks forward to catching up with patients. When she is not in the office, you will find her spending time with her family and loved ones. They love to travel and spend quality time together.
Lisa – Business Administrator
Lisa is our front desk associate. She began her dental profession as Registered Dental Assistant in 2001 with Western Career College. Her constant passion and knowledge for taking care of patients and their dental needs has led her to the business side of Dentistry. Committing to help our patients understand their dental treatment and the use of their insurance is most important. Easing the stress and tension that may come with learning about dental insurance, Lisa is able to make this transition with ease. Her goal is to always give our patients the best customer service and leave with a smile on their face. Keeping a personal touch with our patients allows them to feel at ease and most comfortable with their dental visits.
Lisa currently lives in Walnut Grove, CA on the Sacramento River, where she loves to raft, hike, bike and enjoy any water sports. She has one son that is attending college here in Sacramento. Friends, family and loved ones she enjoys trips and vacationing with them. She is also an advocate to staying health and just living life to the fullest.
Luchel – Dental Assistant

Her ability as an dental assistant is a great asset to our office. She has both back and front office knowledge and skills that allow her to accommodate our patients. Luchel’s goal is to treat our patients as not only a family member but as a caring provider during their dental visits. Her bubbly, fun, & spunky personality adds a more comfortable experience for all our patients. Her native move from the bay area to Sacramento with her daughter has been one of the best experiences.
