JoyceJoyce

Clinical Manager

I graduated from Sac City in 1988 with high honors, and since then have taken many continuing education classes and received my surgical certification. I assist Dr. Binon with implant patients and supervise overall clinical operations, including scheduling, tracking treatment plans, and managing lab cases. Moreover, I help our patients reach their goals of a healthy smile.

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Dr. Binon for my entire career. We all have the same goals of practicing high quality dentistry. I love working with a team that has such incredibly high standards.

I am married and have three grown children, all living in different towns, and one granddaughter. I enjoy many different hobbies, including astronomy, canning, baking, going to the theater, day trips, and the ocean. I usually take my mother to church on Sundays and bring my greyhound Coco to retirement facilities.


CherylCheryl

Registered Dental Assistant—Expanded Functions II

I graduated from High Tech Institute in 1998 with an Associate’s degree in Allied Health Science. I received my RDA license in 1999 and worked in both general dental and community health settings prior to working for Dr. Binon. I love working with Dr. Binon because of his experience and the trust that he places in me. He is honest and I appreciate all that he has to teach me.

The best part of being an RDA is that I get to provide direct patient care! I love interacting with our patients and all phases of their restorative treatment. Seeing their beautifully restored smiles is such a joy!

When I’m not at the office, I enjoy spending time with my daughter, cooking, and traveling.


Jo AnnJo Ann

Financial Manager

I completed the Registered Dental Assistant Program at Sacramento City College in 1994. In 2018, I transitioned to the administrative aspect of dentistry by joining Dr. Binon’s team as our financial manager. I am responsible for walking patients through the financial aspect of their dental needs. This gives me the opportunity to see our patients before and after their dental case, and witness the amazing changes it makes in their lives.

In my free time, I enjoy being with my family, traveling, going on hikes, and playing with my Dachshunds.


ChristineChristine

Bookkeeper

I took over the bookkeeping and financial management for Dr. Binon’s practice in 2014. My goal is for the practice to be financially successful and run as smoothly as possible from the bookkeeping end.

Dr. Binon, our team, and I all together to achieve common goals: the best patient care and the most beautiful, healthy smiles.

In addition to my work here, I am the office manager for my husband’s business as a contractor. In my free time, I enjoy traveling, photography, and spending time with my family.


PamelaPamela

Scheduling Coordinator

My background is as a registered dental assistant, which was my career for more than 40 years. Now in administration, I am the first person to greet and check in our patients. I work closely with our treatment coordinator to make sure our patients’ appointments are properly scheduled according to their treatment plan.

I genuinely enjoy caring for our patients and having a great place to come to work every day. We all work hard every day to put a smile on our patients’ faces!

I moved to the Sacramento area about a year ago from the Bay Area. I have two grown sons and am a grandmother to an almost two-year-old granddaughter. My passions outside of work are kayaking and being on the water.


KellyKelley

Registered Dental Hygienist

I earned my Associate in Science from American River College and my Associate in Dental Hygiene from Sacramento City College. In the years since I’ve worked at Dr. Binon’s practice, I’ve enjoyed taking care of my patients’ oral health and getting to know them on a personal level.

I’m so lucky to work with such ethical, hardworking dental professionals who take pride in their work. Plus, they are super fun to be around!

I am currently working on my Bachelor’s degree, so whatever time I have left is spent watching my Del Oro sophomore play basketball and baseball. I am lucky to also have two horses, two dogs, three cats, and a fish that give us unconditional love.


JanisJanis

Registered Dental Hygienist

I began my dental career after graduating with my Associate’s degree in Science from Cabrillo College in Aptos, CA in 1980. In 1991, I earned my dental hygiene degree. I joined Dr. Binon’s practice in 2016 and have since developed some wonderful relationships with my patients and our team.

We are all focused on providing the best care for our patients, and we have mutual respect for each other. It makes for a very positive working environment, and one I look forward to going to each day.

I’ve lived in the Sacramento area for more than 24 years. My time is filled with caring for my elderly mother, working out, skiing, biking, traveling, and spending time with my wonderful friends!


MichaelMichael

Lab Tech

I can be found in our lab, where I fabricate verification jigs and bite rims, pour and articulate models for diagnosis and treatment, and handle ordering of clinical and lab supplies. I also fix just about anything that is broken around the office.

I love working with a great group of clinical and front office coworkers. They are just plain good people. We are always making each other laugh and teaching one another new things.

Currently, I am studying environmental science at CSU Sacramento. I am an avid outdoorsman and love virtually anything that gets me into the wilderness. I am an Eagle Scout and always love to lend a hand in my community.


SusanSusan

Marketing Director

I recently retired from teaching and have agreed to take on the marketing and outreach in my husband’s office. I am a people person, so I love interacting with everyone. I am very creative and my role here is a great creative outlet!

I respect Dr. Binon’s commitment to his patients. He is highly skilled and creative, and that shows in the beautiful results that he produces. Our entire team is warm and friendly, highly competent, and committed to doing their very best for every patient.

Dr. Binon and I have six children between us.  We also have six beautiful grandchildren ranging in age from two to nineteen. We have two dogs, Rusty and Cody and they rule the roost. I love cooking, decorating, and entertaining. Dr. B and I love to travel and we enjoy day trips exploring little towns around our surrounding area. I serve on the Board of Directors for Wellness Within, a local non-profit that supports cancer patients and their families. I also co-chair the events committee that puts on fundraisers to support the organization.


Jo Shorter

Registered Dental Hygienist

Jo just celebrated her 25th year in dentistry and has both clinical and administrative knowledge to help care for our patients with complex dental needs.

She has a foundation in general dentistry, but has 15 years devoted to specialty dentistry and found that she enjoys the complexities of the comprehensive dental cases, contributing to the sensitive nature of this, and helping patients understand their care both financially and clinically.

  She is a graduate of the Sacramento City College Dental Science Program with her RDA. In her spare time, you will find her high on a nature trail with her two Dachshunds and daughter.


Heidi

Registered Dental Hygienist

My priority is to offer gentle and effective diagnosis, treatment, and maintenance of periodontal disease. I spent 15 years as a RDA before continuing my education to become a hygienist in 1995. I also completed a fellowship from World Clinical Laser Institute in 2010 to provide my patients with an even higher level of care.

I love helping patients obtain a healthy smile! It’s also rewarding every day to work with the educated, experienced, and fun team here at Dr. Binon’s practice.

When I’m not at work, I enjoy golfing and gardening with John. I also like to visit my son and daughter-in-law on the East Coast.
