Our Team

David R. Russell DDS

Dr. Russell enjoys life. He feels blessed to have a wonderful wife (Carol), 4 children (all with spouses) and 13 grandchildren. He loves to serve his church and local communities. Dr. Russell's hobbies include videography, RV camping and traveling. 

Dr. Russell joined with his father (Richard Russell) in 1985 to begin practicing dentistry and has built a loyal clientele since then. He appreciates the opportunity to help his patients to maintain healthy mouths and teeth. He recognizes the somewhat stressful nature of dental treatment and endeavors to be gentle and caring for all of his patients. 

Dr. Russell has lived in the East County since 1959-attended Riverview, Winter Gardens and WD Hall elementary Schools, Greenfield Jr High and Granite Hills High School. He graduated from BYU with a BA in Zoology in 1982 and from University of the Pacific Dental School in San Francisco in 1985.

We also invite you to come in and see some of Carol's gallery pieces we have displayed on our office walls. If you would like to see how Carol creates these awesome pieces, click on this link and you can  watch a 5 minute video of her painting from start to finish.

Patty-our hygienist

Patty gets rave reviews from our patients. She is gentle and very personable. Along with providing excellent hygiene care and helpful tips on home care, she knows how to make our patients feel at home. She is even known to provide some little calming serenades while her patients recline in the chair.

Patty loves spending time with her three children and five grandchildren. She enjoys hiking, working with watercolors and DIY's.



Connie-our appointment coordinator

Connie has worked in our office since 1990-a study in loyal dedication. She began as a chairside assistant and moved to the front office many years ago. 

Connie knows our patients well and works to insure their needs are met. She works to make sure our patient's insurance plans are maximized for each patient's benefit.

Connie loves spending time with her grandchildren, sewing, reading and cooking.

Shelley-our chairside Assistant

Shelley knows how to smile and make other people smile. She is warm and extremely caring. If there is anyone who looks to insure our patients comfort, it is Shelley. She works hard to make our office feel like home.

Shelley loves to spend time with her husband Rodger and the rest of her family, reading and  gardening (she is too nice to shoo the bunnies away from her vegetable plants so she shares with them also.)
