Callie Olesen, Office Manager

Welcome to our practice! I am the friendly face at the front desk. I love to find ways to help people smile and that includes building confidence to share their smile! I am happy to answer your questions, plan for appointments, help resolve concerns and make your visits positive. It is important to me that each of our patients enjoy a feeling of ease and confidence in our office. 

I started with Prescott Dentures and Implants September of 2021 and thoroughly enjoy working with our team.  I have over 20 years of experience in the medical/dental field. I moved to the Verde Valley in 2013 with my husband because of the small town feel and warm climate. I love living in Arizona and all it has to offer. 

Marina Harris, Lead Dental Assistant

I started working in dentistry in 1988 and worked in both private practice and corporate practices. I have been a lead dental assistant for the last 16 years, working in all phases of dentistry including endodontics, periodontics, orthodontics, pediatrics and oral surgery. 

My philosophy in life is faith, family and football. My family, which I am so blessed to have in my life, is where my strength comes from. I am the mother of a 26 year old son, Jerome. He is my inspiration each and every day of my life. My love of the Pittsburgh Steeler football team was brought to a pinnacle after meeting my husband Joe, who is from Pittsburgh PA. He is a gift and I cherish our marriage everyday.

I enjoy golfing, camping, hunting, fishing hiking and of course “Steelers Football”

Julia Ruda, Dental Assistant

Dental Assistant, Julia Ruda has been a part of this team since February of 2022. She is currently enrolled at Yavapai College with high aspirations to soon transfer into a Dental Hygiene program. This is a profession that has many aspects she hopes to see in her future career such as, a social work environment, having a sense of purpose, and the ability to help others. More so, her choice of occupation stems from her passion to make a difference.

With her compassionate personality, she is dedicated to ensuring the patients comfortability and to ease their dental anxieties. “I’m honored to take on this role. Not only to help my team, but to help patients feel secure and content. I take pleasure in watching our patients walk out 100x more confident than when we first met. It warms my heart to watch eyes light up, after initially seeing their brand-new smile.”

Maliyah Phetinta, Dental Assistant

Maliyah Phetinta joined our team at the beginning of 2022 as a dental assistant. Maliyah is new to the dental field and has a very strong drive for learning more and more every day. Having been in various different customer service field jobs before coming to our office one of Maliyah’s biggest priorities is patient satisfaction. “I make it my goal to ensure that every patient I see has a good experience and feels heard, especially because I know some people have already had bad experiences with dentists, I never want them to say the same after a visit with us. It helps having such good role models and teachers who I get to watch and learn from every day to help achieve that goal. Every patient we see is going through their own journey to being more comfortable and confident in themselves so if I can help along that journey of theirs to get them smiling more it makes all the hard work worth it!”

In her free time Maliyah likes to be outdoors whether it be hiking, swimming, snowboarding, or a simple walk. She is a very optimistic person who surrounds herself with friends and family who are just as uplifting as she is. We are so glad to have Maliyah a part of our team and we look forward to seeing Maliyah grow and learn more here at our office with us!

I have spent the last 20 years in Hospitality and Sales Management. Over the last year I have explored and gained knowledge in the field of dentistry only to realize that hospitality and patient care go hand in hand.

Here at Prescott Dentures and Implants, patient care is my top priority from the moment you walk through our door. I appreciate the opportunity to greet you with a warm welcome. I am committed to making sure you leave with the vision of your new smile and answer any questions you may have about the journey ahead. We look forward to meeting you!
