Dental Assistants and Massage Therapists

Melinda Salmeto
 
From my first visit to The Dental Spa I knew I wanted to be part of their team. If I wasn’t hired as their massage therapist I knew I would be their new patient. Being able to take my passion of massage and work in a setting that had never even crossed my mind, a dental office, has been a blessing. I love what I do, and enjoy being a part of a professional dental team that provides exceptional dental care. Massage helps the patient in making their visit to the dentist more comfortable. The Comfort Menu is available to all patients, especially those patients that are anxious. I am fortunate to have a rewarding opportunity by having a soothing impact on our patients by offering massage therapy.

I love my job! For the past 20 years I have enjoyed working with Dr. Sasaki as an assistant and most recently as a lab technician. I love being a part of the Dental Spa Team & could not imagine a better place to work. My hobbies include spending time with friends, painting and reading.

I am proud to say I have been working as a Dental Assistant for 25 years.  I absolutely love my job and the many wonderful patients I have met during this time.  
 
While not at work I enjoy family time which includes my husband of 22 years and our awesome Grandchildren!  I also enjoy time spent in my garden, church activities and outings with family and friends. 
 
It is my desire to continue my career here at The Dental Spa working with all the fabulous patients and my wonderful co-workers for many years to come.

My name is Charneal, but I go by “Char”. I fell in love with dentistry while in broadcasting school, and never looked back!  I have been in the dental field for over 18 years as an assistant. In 2014, I became a Certified and a Registered Dental Assistant. I also, have my Bachelor’s in Applied Science and a Minor in Healthcare Management. 
 
I am happily married to my husband of 13 years, and we have 4 children (2 boys, 2 girls).  When I am not working, I can be found at local parks and museums with my kids or sitting sideline while my kids participate in karate and soccer.  I also enjoy cooking, traveling, and helping with my church outreach programs.
