Sherry A

Office Manager


I am the face that will greet you when you walk into Lincoln Crossing
Dental. I look forward to working with you on scheduling your
appointments, explaining your insurance benefits, and figuring out
financial arrangements that work for you and your family so you can have
optimum dental health. I started working in the dental field in 1983. My
years have given me experience assisting in almost all areas of dentistry
including general, cosmetic, periodontics, endodontics, and oral surgery as
well as working more than a decade as a Registered Dental Hygienist.

I am a country girl who enjoys life living on a ranch surrounded by horses,
cows, chickens, dogs, cats, and my 32” miniature horse named Toothpaste.
(He’s so cute you want to squeeze him like a tube of toothpaste!) My 3
“children” are all amazing adults now. My oldest two are happily married
and live in the Bay Area with my grandchildren. And my youngest is a
student at Kansas State University. I have a couple of side businesses
that keep me busy ~ DAZZLE - Parties with Paint and Sherry’s Rustic Rescue.
Life is good!


Rebecca B

Registered Dental Assistant

I am a native of the Sacramento area.  After graduating high school in 2002, I immediately enrolled in a dental assistance program. Later, I had the wonderful opportunity to serve in an externship with Dr. Phen at Elkhorn Family Dental.

It’s hard to believe that I started working at Elkhorn Family Dental in 2003. I am impressed every day by Dr. Phen’s passion for providing each patient with great dental care.

In my free time, my husband of ten years and I enjoy a wide range of activities.  We love to travel, camp and fish.  I also have too many hobbies to mention.  I just love my life!


Heather J

Registered Dental Hygienist

I was born and raised in central Florida. My love for dentistry started at a young age. I loved my hygienist and the artistry the assistants showed while making temporary crowns. I became a dental assistant in 2004 and a hygienist in 2011. I moved to California in 2017 and was lucky to find Dr. Phen and Dr. Jara in early 2018. I love helping patients take better care of their oral health and in turn their overall health.

In my free time, I like to brew beer, make kombucha, and pickle vegetables. I miss the warm beached of Florida and being so close to theme parks. I look forward to the many adventures California has to offer.


Rachel S

Registered Dental Assistant


I knew dental care would be the career for me from early in life. I
started my dental assisting program as a senior in high school and became
an RDA shortly there after. I am currently in the process of furthering my
education to become an RDAEF. I'm very excited to be furthering my
education in this office under the guidance of Doctor Phen and Doctor
Jara.

I was born and raised here in the Sacramento valley with my two brothers
and parents. In my free time I enjoy my pets and spending time with
friends.


Natalie L

Dental Assistant

I was born and raised in Lincoln, CA. I became a dental assistant at Lincoln Crossing Dental in 2018. I am continuing my education to become a Registered Dental Hygienist. I am new to the team but I am excited to provide exceptional patient care.

Outside of work, I have been a makeup artist at Sephora for 3 years. I enjoy hiking, painting, and spending time with my loved ones.


Natalie F

Dental Assistant

I was born and raised in Los Angeles.  I have been employed in the dental field since 2010 working for a children’s dental group for four years before joining Dr. Phen’s team.

I have been trained for oral and I.V. sedation.  I have also been trained to understand the behavior of children, and how to make their experience in the dental setting more comfortable.  I am constantly learning new procedures in Dr. Phen’s office, especially as it relates to dental implants.

When I’m not busy working, my husband and I love spending time with our three year-old daughter.
