Meet the Team


Angela Christoff

As our lead 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.


Beth Merkt

We are excited to have Beth on our team. She’s been a dental assistant with us since August of 2017. She’s a hard worker whose friendly attitude and dedication to her job helps our office run smoothly.

She has been married to her husband since 2006. He works as a city firefighter, so Beth’s adventures don’t stop when she goes home. Together with their daughter, they like to spend time as a family by going on walks or heading down to the beach.


Hoku Pili Mai

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.


Kristy Price

Kristy is a registered dental hygienist who brings 20 years of experience to Alatorre Dental! Aside from her considerable experience, we appreciate Kristy’s positive demeanor as well as the fact that she is a team player. Both of these characteristics help us give patients the best experience possible when they come in for appointments.

Kristy has been married to her high school sweetheart since 1997, and they have 3 fabulous kids together! For fun, she loves to read, work out, and travel with the family she loves so much.


Lisa Marshall

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.
