Nancy Bouchoucha, Registered Nurse/Administrator
I love being able to bring my knowledge and experience as an operating room nurse to our state of the art oral and facial surgery center. I enjoy working closely with the doctor and our team to ensure we are providing our patients with the highest level of patient care and safety, including infection control, strict adherence to OSHA requirements, emergency preparedness, and following all protocols and standards of care. Patient safety is our number one priority! In my spare time I enjoy traveling, bike riding, and spending time with my family and pets.
Cheryl Hughes – Administrative Assistant
I have been with Sonora Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery for thirteen years as an Administrative Assistant, with experience in oral surgery, patient coordination, financial coordination, and human resources. With Sonora Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, I have continued to learn from a specialized, professional, and patient oriented practice. The dedication to quality and compassionate care has made this a place I have enjoyed working with our patients, staff and doctor.
Peggy Rodgers RDA – Financial Coordinator
I have enjoyed being Financial Coordinator for Sonora Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery for the past nine years. It is a pleasure getting to know our patients, and my role is crucial in working closely with them on their treatment planning. For our patients with insurance, I try to make sure that they are able to maximize their benefits for their treatment in our office. I am always available to answer any questions our patients may have regarding their treatment planning and financing.
Nancy Hoag – Patient Coordinator
It is my daily pleasure to be in the front office to greet and meet our new patients and help them with any initial questions they may have. I was born and raised on the Peninsula. My dental career began in 1987 in San Carlos. After my husband and I relocated to Twain Harte I started with Sonora Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery in 2008. I am happy to be working for such a skilled surgeon and being part of a wonderful team in a state of the art office.
Marisa Yardley RDA – Implant Coordinator/Surgical Assistant
I enjoy working with Dr. Bouchoucha on a wide range of oral and maxillofacial surgeries, from wisdom teeth to full mouth rehabilitation, using the most state of the art dental and implant technology. As Implant Coordinator, you can be confident in knowing that I have been trained and am knowledgeable in all aspects of implants. I find this specialty challenging but very rewarding and feel fortunate to call this my career. When not at the office, I enjoy my beautiful home in Twain Harte and am a proud mother of a five year old son. In my free time I enjoy hiking, camping, and San Francisco Giants baseball.
