Chalmers Dental - Meet Us

Stephanie BruceStephanie Bruce

Registered Dental Hygienist (RDH)

Hi, I’m Stephanie and if you don’t know me, it’s because we haven’t met. I’m one of those open book people and to meet me is to know me. I’ve been here at Chalmers Dental since I moved to Sacramento from Oregon over nine years ago as a newlywed searching for sun and warmth. I love my patients here and feel like I’m visiting with friends and family every day that I am here. My husband Branden and I love spending time with family and have lots of fun taking bucket-list adventure vacations. Ask me about home repair projects…have I got stories for you! Our “oldest” hygienist, Steph, is out of an extended leave of absence caring for her brand new baby boy, Carter. She is in love!

Julie Conrad

Registered Dental Hygienist (RDH)

Hi, I’m Julie and I like to make your teeth shine!

Jessica HumeJessica Hume

Registered Dental Hygienist (RDH)

Hi, I’m Jessica and I’m your guide to smooth, and sparkly clean teeth. I’ve been here at Chalmers Dental for a while now as a part-time hygienist but recently made the jump to full-time. I worked with my last doctor in Rio Linda for about 10 years and his passion for dentistry led me to want to be a dentist too. Now that my son Ethan is in high school, I’m ready and able to take the plunge. So, in addition to working full time here, I also attend school refreshing my brain about things like Calculus and Biochem and all those things I previously was happy to forget. Don’t worry, I’m just getting started and I’ll be here for a while before I get into dental school. Dr. Chalmers and I even have this hair-brained idea that I could come work here as a dentist when I graduate. Imagine that!

Angela Paxson

Registered Dental Hygienist (RDH)

Hi, I’m Angela and I like to make your teeth sparkle!

Shiree Hieb

Registered Dental Assistant (RDA)

Hi, I’m Shiree and I work with Dr. Chalmers and Dr. Kanwar. I like all things Disney and make special trips throughout the year to the Happiest Place on Earth. I also like to torture everyone here with delicious treats.

Tammy Roach

Registered Dental Assistant (RDA)

Hi, I’m Tammy! Yep, you read that right. Tammy. Dr. Chalmers hired two people named Tammy, with the same spelling for the same RDA position. Apparently the first one worked out so well, he figured he would just try and replicate her. I’m the newest member of the team, having worked for my last dentist, Dr. Homer for the past 20 years. I have two girls in junior high and their gymnastics and softball schedules keep my husband and I running. Seriously, we don’t really have any spare time right now, but in the occasion that we get some downtime, my husband Russ and I enjoy camping, playing softball and going for walks together. I’m looking forward to meeting you soon as I integrate myself into this crazy Chalmers Dental family.

Maria SanchezMaria Sanchez

Registered Dental Assistant (RDA )

Hi, I’m Maria and I keep a little bit of levity in the office. Someone has got to keep Dr. Chalmers from talking all day! Good thing I like to work out, because I’m constantly on the move here and at home. My husband, Hector and I have two sons and a really active dog. I’ve been in the dental field for over 20 years and Des says that I am the most gentle person in the office. So, if you’ve got a small mouth, I’m your girl!

Kori BarberKori Barber

Scheduling Coordinator

Hi, I’m Kori and I’ll be the first person you see when you walk through our doors. I moved to Carmichael from the Bay Area and graduated from El Camino (Josh and I went to school together and apparently I got the job here because he said I was nice and smart). I love oldies music, which is good because Josh totally can not help himself from singing along. I’m in school to become a nurse and I spend a lot of my time studying. I like taking pictures of my kitties Ice and Coco and adventuring out of town with my boyfriend Sean. We love going to the ocean, hiking and finding new places to swim every summer.

Records Coordinator

Danielle Douet

Insurance Specialist

Dani, our insurance coordinator, is currently home with her brand new baby, Ayden. She has a baby girl Adley who is soaking up mommy time too!

Danell Harrison

Practice Adminstrator

Hi, I’m Danell and I’m the new Des 😊. That means that I am your go to girl.

Courtney Taylor

Dental Scheduler & Treatment Coordinator

Hi, I’m the newest member of the team, and if you thought the others were fun, then wait until you meet me. As the newly designated Party Planner, I’m going to put Meredith, Angela and Pam from The Office to shame. Also, I know a lot about dentistry and will help you with that too.

Susan BeckSusan Beck

Treatment Specialist & RDA

Hi, my name is Susan and I enjoy long walks on the beach. Haha, as a transplant from Southern California, I don’t get to visit the beach anymore, but I’ve got plenty to keep me busy. Between three kids (four if you count my husband, David) and two grandchildren, my schedule is packed. As much as I love dentistry, I really love heading out for new adventures over the weekend, checking out quality coffee shops around the area (who settles for Starbucks?) and giving back to the community. As the person who reviews treatment for all our patients, I know we will meet soon…that is unless you come when the Cardinals or Dodgers are in SF or playing each other. David and I have better things to do then!

Desirae ChalmersDesirae Chalmers

Chief Operation Officer

Hi! I’m Desirae (a.k.a. Dr’s wife). I was raised in Placerville and graduated from El Dorado High School. I have a degree in Business Administration from University of California, Riverside. Before Jay convinced me to move into the dental industry, I worked as a Business Manager and Events Coordinator for JPMorgan Chase & Co. I used to work at the office full-time, but I’ve cut way back and now oversee all financial, marketing, philanthropic and long-term business planning for our practice. Honestly, I’m too much of a people person to get meaningful work done and prefer connecting the community to our practice.

My best times include long laughs with friends. Like to the point that my cheeks hurt and I can’t breathe. I’ve been kind of obsessed with the Dave Matthews Band since 1996 and with my best friends, follow them around the West Coast every year for at least a week. Otherwise, I love hanging out with my family, being uber competitive with my trivia team, being torn between my English Lab, Olive, and Chicken Killing French Bulldog, Atticus and trying to get my teenage girls to occasionally acknowledge me.
