Cara Harrington (Registered Dental Hygienist)

I was born and raised in Southern California, and have had the opportunity to live in North Carolina and Colorado for several years from 2002-2008, before moving back to California.  I attended California Lutheran University in Thousand Oaks for undergraduate studies followed by Dental Hygiene school at Oxnard College.  I have been practicing dental hygiene since 2000.  I have always enjoyed healthcare and hands-on work with people, so a dental hygienist was the perfect choice as a profession for me.

I have two children, both boys, of whom I love to spend time playing sports, vacationing and playing with our two dogs, Duke and Java.  I am active in my husband’s financial advisory business and have volunteer roles in the Ventura County Habitat for Humanity, my neighborhood HOA, and my children’s school PTA.

Carolyn Yamashita (Registered Dental Hygienist)

My name is Carolyn. I have been a Registered Dental Hygienist for over 20 years. I have experience in periodontal therapy and have had the pleasure of working with amazing dentists like Dr. Javia and our outstanding team.  It’s been an honor working with and educating my patients, and I plan to continue to do so for many years to come.

I was born and raised in California.  I live in Westlake Village with my husband and two kids who are both attending college.  I enjoy playing tennis, gardening and traveling.

Karen Piiranen (Registered Dental Hygienist)

Originally from Michigan, which is where my dental career started as a teenager. I enjoyed the healthcare aspect of dentistry so much, that I decided to attend college and become a Dental Hygienist. A few years after graduating from college I moved from Michigan, and also became licensed in California.

Some of my specialties include helping people move through their dental anxieties and fears, as well as safely caring for and maintaining dental health, in head and neck cancer survivors.

Some of my interests include: singing, comedy improv and mixology.

Jocelyn Contreras (Dental Assistant)

I was born in California and raised in Central America. I had braces when I was 14 years old and since then my interest in dentistry began. I love being a dental assistant, caring for every patient that steps into the clinic, making sure everything is ready and clean for them. I always try to make sure every patient is comfortable during the procedure. I love my job, interaction with the patients and always look forward to come to office.

It’s my pleasure working with Dr. Javia and other staff members of Dental Wellness.

Karina Leyva (Patient and Treatment Plan Coordinator)

My experience with dentistry began in 2004, when I graduated as a dental x-ray technician and got my certificate and worked for 10 years as a dental assistant and receptionist for 10 years in Simi Valley area.

I joined Dental Wellness of Westlake village in April 2014 and it’s a pleasure working with Dr. Javia. I enjoy helping people and seeing the beautiful smiles that we create every day. Seeing the faces of relief after the doctors treat our patients is the best feeling. Knowing that we did something good for someone is priceless. I am blessed to be surrounded by amazing patients and team that I consider part of my family.

A few things about me. I have been in United States since I was 6 years old. I came with my mom from Mexico. I went to school in the San Fernando Area and graduated from James Monroe High School in 1991. The best moments are spending time with my family and friends. I am married to a wonderful man that I love. I have two wonderful daughters and one son and 5 amazing grand kids.
