Meet Us

Who we are:



Erin Abel, DDS
Dr. Abel has been practicing dentistry since 1993 and the foundation of her career is superior dental care!
She is a graduate of Marquette University and a Sonoma County native. Having grown up in the Santa Rosa area, she is proud to be practicing on her home turf. Dr Abel prides herself on her sensitive and caring chairside manner, an asset she feels is a mandatory component for any dentist. Her Modus Operendum is simple – having spent many many hours in the chair as a patient herself, she simply treats her patients the way she makes the dentists treat her – with open ears and lots of sensitivity.



Lisa – Reception
After earning her bachelor’s degree in journalism and working for several years in human resources and facilities management, Lisa decided to go into dental office administrations. She has been working in dentistry since 2001. Lisa has a knack for working with patients and appreciates our close knit team. She and her husband Dominic have three children, twin girls named Mia and Juliana and a son named Michael. Swimming, reading, crafting and family campouts keep Lisa busy on the weekends. Please feel free to call her with your questions.




Terri – Hygienist
Terri grew up in Novato, California, and graduated from the University of California, San Francisco Dental Hygiene program. She has lived in Santa Rosa with her husband, Phillip and two daughters since 1986. She has a dog, Nitro, who enjoys walking around Spring Lake and camping. Terri enjoys meeting new people and forming lasting relationships with the patients she meets in the different dental offices she works. When she is not working she enjoys traveling, reading and camping.



Evelyne – Dental Assistant
Evelyne MacDonald was born and raised in Lullingen, Germany. She moved to the United States in 1988 and has been a resident of Sonoma County since 1990.
