Meet the Team

Kendall McKown – Lead Dental Assistant

Meet Kendall McKown, our lead dental assistant. Kendall joined our practice in October 2020, and like Dr. Alatorre, she is passionate about dentistry. With over 15 years of experience, Kendall enjoys using her skills and knowledge to help Dr. Alatorre take care of our patients. Gentle touch and compassion are Kendall’s trademark, and she is passionate about helping patients understand the importance of their overall health.

Kendall first graduated with a degree in Education in 1998 but changed her career field to dentistry in 2004. She has been married to her husband since 2000, and her favorite pastimes are walking her dogs, reading, and dreaming about one day retiring in a lakeside community. Kendall loves her fur babies and is especially fond of basset hounds.

Angela Christoff – Dental Assistant / Front Office

As our dental assistant, Angela keeps our office stocked, prepped, and ready for anything. In 2005 she graduated with honors from the Dental Assistant Program at Pima Medical Institute, and we’re more than thrilled to have that experience available to our patients!

Angela has a welcoming manner that makes everyone, whether staff or patient, feel like a member of the family. She loves getting to know everyone individually and helping them receive excellent dental care.

At home, she and her partner, Shawn, have their hands quite full with two young daughters who have a lot of energy. Angela also has a grown son. She loves spending time with her family on weekend outings.

When she does get a little time to herself, she spends it exercising or baking.

Hoku Pili Mai – Hygienist

Hoku is a CSN graduate who is goal-driven and hard-working. We’re very lucky to have her working with us. She’s been at our office since 2017, and has been practicing in the dental industry since 2005. This experience makes her a great hygienist and a valuable employee.

Hoku has four sons who keep her on her toes. She spends a lot of time cheering them on at various sporting and school events. When she’s not on the bleachers, she enjoys reading and keeping in shape.

Lisa Marshall – Office Manager

Lisa came to us from San Diego and has been an office manager here since 2018. She works hard to make sure that everyone who walks through our door is comfortable. She also goes the extra mile to help patients understand and organize the financial end of the dental visit, doing everything possible to make it an affordable and comfortable experience. Ask her any questions you need!.

Lisa is married with three daughters, but only one daughter still living at home. The other two are off on their own college journeys. In her spare time, Lisa enjoys reading, staying fit, and learning new recipes. If you can’t find her in the kitchen, check the soccer fields for an enthusiastic soccer mom.
