Meet the Team

We recognize that all of our patients are unique and deserve to receive dental care that reflects their individual needs. Our experienced and talented dental team is committed to working with you and your family to create a comfortable, stress-free, and rewarding dental experience every time you visit our practice. We are pleased to welcome you and your family, and we look forward to working with you.



Marketing Director

I joined Ascot Family Dental in mid 2015. I am here to ensure that our team consistently provides our patients with the utmost respect and care during their dental experience. What I enjoy most about my job is that it gives me the opportunity to use my problem solving and organizational skills in making sure both our patients and staff are given the tools they need to have a positive experience here at Ascot Family Dental.
I enjoy outdoor activities like hiking and off-roading. I am a huge baseball and football fan and of course, I always enjoy spending time with my friends, family, and sweet rescue dog.





Registered Dental Hygienist

I began my dental career in 2009 as an assistant and continued my training to become a dental hygienist in 2014. Shortly thereafter, I joined Ascot Family Dental. While I perform routine and deep dental cleanings, administer fluoride, and perform periodontal maintenance, my passion is in teaching patients about oral health and how to keep their teeth and gums in excellent condition. At the end of the day, it’s very rewarding to know that I’ve made a difference in my patients’ oral health and lives.

I’ve been happily married for two years.My husband and I share our lives with two dogs and are expecting our first child in June 2017. When I’m not in the office, I love time spent outdoors and being with my family.





Insurance Coordinator

Like the rest of our team, my focus is always on helping each patient have a positive and pleasant visit. Whatever a person needs, I’m here to help. All they need to do is ask. I work one-to-one with patients to review their insurance coverage and ensure they get the most from their benefits. I also handle financial and scheduling-related issues, when they arise. Most of all, I’m here for our patients and love seeing their happy, healthy smiles.

Away from work, I enjoy spending quality time with family and friends.



Dental Assistant

I have more than 35 years of experience in dentistry and joined Dr. Parikh and Dr. Shokar in 2015. Throughout the years, I have worked in all aspects of dentistry and have always given the best possible care to my patients. I love being a part of our patients’ journeys to healthy smiles, and seeing them leave our office happy.

When I am not at the office, I love spending time with my husband and family. My two favorite activities are boating and cooking.



Registered Dental Assistant

I work hand in hand with the rest of the team to ensure efficient flow of the back office, while assisting our doctors in providing quality care to each and every patient. Bringing with me a background in general dentistry, I became a part of Ascot Family Dental in 2016. My favorite part of what I do is working with a great team that genuinely cares about our patients and each other. We listen to our patients and make their needs our priority.

I am the proud mother of two young boys. When I'm not in the office, I enjoy music, being outdoors, and spending time with my family and friends.




Registered Dental Hygienist

I became a registered dental assistant in 2008, and in 2011, decided I wanted to go back to school in order to become a hygienist. My goal is to create a positive dental experience, since most people are wary of the dental chair. I enjoy making them feel safe and comfortable, all while providing education and making sure they have clean teeth and a healthy smile.

I’m a huge sports fan—I love watching as well as playing all kinds of sports. I come from a family of eight and we were all highly competitive. I try to practice yoga as often as I can. Woodworking is also something I enjoy, whether it’s building a piece of furniture for the house or making something small for a friend. My favorite pastime is spending time with my boyfriend, siblings, nieces, and nephews laughing and reminiscing about the past and present life. 



Scheduling Coordinator

I joined the team in 2016 and have been in the dental field since 2009. I enjoy making sure our patients are happy with their experience and that they are maintaining their dental health. The thing I enjoy most about my job is being able to work with such a team that is friendly, motivated, and full of positive energy!

Outside of the office, I enjoy relaxing, exploring new places and spending time with my family.
