Office Manager and Treatment Coordinator
Regina Nand’s passion for helping others, along with her superior organizational skills and problem-solving abilities, has been evident throughout her life, even from an early age. Ever since Regina was a child, she has been known to go the extra mile for others. When she was in summer camp, she would get the “go-for” award, for always asking others if they needed help. As she began her career journey, she quickly realized that the jobs she most enjoyed were the ones where she felt like she could make a difference in someone’s life. One of her favorite sayings is “A smile is contagious”, and she tries to radiate from within at all times.
From the moment she began her career in patient care over 20 years ago, she immediately fell in love with it, and she knew she had found her life’s passion. This led her to pursue further education in the patient care field, and she ultimately received her bachelor’s degree in nursing from SJSU. While she was in school as SJSU, her inherent leadership skills were instantly recognized by those around her. Regina was chosen to represent the entire college during bi-monthly meetings with the Dean of College of Applied Science and Arts, and was then elected as president.
As Regina migrated to the dental field, she has been able to draw on her understanding of both back office and front office management responsibilities, bringing her knowledge together to seamlessly communicate with both patients and doctors. Throughout her career, she has accumulated a wealth of experience and a full understanding of all the different aspects of the field of dentistry. She is responsive, professional, and caring, and she is always here with a smile and a friendly greeting to help provide our patients with a welcoming and comfortable experience.
In her free time, Regina likes to read, hang out with her family, spend time in the gym, and travel whenever possible.
