Daisy, Front Desk/Patient Coordinator
Daisy’s career in the dental field impressively spans over 45 years so far, with the last few spent here in our Rockville office. Her education in oral healthcare actually comes from a very unique place – an Adult Education School on a military base in West Germany! What she enjoys most about her work today is the wonderful patients she interacts with.
Daisy is originally from the city of Worms in Germany. In her free time, you can usually find her working diligently on her flower garden.
Luisa, Dental Assistant
Luisa first joined Dr. Sanker’s team a little over five years ago, and she has 35+ years of experience in the dental field overall! After studying at the University of the East, she attended the National University College of Dentistry. Today, she is an Expanded Function Dental Assistant and a Dental Radiation Technologist. She loves the feeling of seeing each patient happy and satisfied with their brand-new restorations!
Originally from the Philippines, Luisa has a very close-knit family. Outside of working hours, you can usually find her cooking good meals or watching television.
Leila, Dental Assistant
Leila is originally from right here in Rockville, and she studied at both Far Eastern University and Manila Central University. Today, her dental career spans over 30 years, with the last handful of them spent as part of Dr. Rockville’s team. She has undergone training in a number of different technologies and clinical techniques, including the 3Shape Trios Intraoral Scanner and DEXIS Digital X-ray Imaging. What she likes most about her job is working with such a dedicated doctor who respects his patients and team members so much.
Leila and her husband have been married for well over 30 years, and they have two daughters who work as a nurse and an IT tech. Outside of work, her favorite hobbies include cooking, shopping, singing at karaoke, and traveling together with her family. She loves being adventurous but is terrified of heights!
Heather, Registered Dental Hygienist
Originally from Clarksburg, WV, Heather completed her Bachelor of Science at West Virginia University. Today, her career in the oral healthcare field covers well over 25 years, with most of that time spent right here at Dr. Sanker’s office. Her favorite part of this job is being able to help patients regain the health they deserve!
Whenever she has free time outside of the office, Heather’s favorite hobbies include cooking, crocheting, reading, biking, walking, and going to Bible studies. She also just learned to paddle board this year and absolutely loves it.
