Nikkie Felten

Financial Coordinator

Originally born in Texas, Nikkie soon moved to Southern California and later traveled north to be raised in Napa.  She later became a Veterinarian Tech - and after many years of performing dental cleanings on animals - she decided to switch to the human side of the dental spectrum and went to college to become a Registered Dental Assistant.  After graduation, she searched for a special office in the dental field and found Dr. Kevin at Encore Dental.  Right away, she knew Encore was a great fit that had that team-driven feel she was looking for where the rest is now history!  In short, she couldn't be happier with her position and team she intimately works with.

In her spare time, Nikkie enjoys spending time with her dogs, rescuing animals, drawing, reading, cooking healthy food, working out, surfing and riding her longboard on sunny days.


Maricel Guya

Dental Assistant

Maricel was born and raised in Vallejo, California.  It was seeing her sister get braces that sparked her interest in dentistry at an early age.  She graduated from Bethel High School and soon after earned her Dental Assistant certificate in 2009.  Since then, she has been working within dentistry while balancing her academic life as a full-time student studying general sciences.  Looking forward to serve others outside of dentistry, she eagerly looks forward to furthering her personal and educational pursuits to helping others look and feel better.

She was offered an opportunity to work with Dr. Kevin and his team in late 2014.  Throughout it all, she has never been happier to work with such a great group of people, "I love our team!"

He interests include do-it-yourself projects, working out (because she loves to eat), spending time with family and going on spontaneous trips with her high school sweetheart of ten years!


Monica Morales

Dental Assistant

Monica was first born and raised in Richmond, California where her and her family later moved to Suisun City during her teenage years.  It was during this time when her interest in dentistry had first begun.  The dental office she attended then made her experience so pleasant that it left a long lasting impression.  It was an impression so strong that it deeply influenced her to begin her career in the dental sciences.  With the deep seated intention of sharing the same care she received with her greater community, she graduated from Heald College with an Associate of Science in Dental Assisting.  In 2011, addition to the excitement of earning her degree, Monica gave birth to her beautiful daughter Arielle.  As a proud mother, Monica enjoys having tea parties and spending quality time with daughter while also enjoying hiking, camping and swimming.


Maggie Jobe

Treatment and Financial Coordinator

Maggie was born and raised in Tucson, Arizona. In early 2005, she decided to trade the beautiful Arizona desert that she grew up with for the breath-taking vineyards of the Napa Valley that she now calls home. After arriving in the Valley, she was taken on at the Grill at Meadowood where she met her loving husband, Kevin. (not Dr. Kevin!) After their first son was born, Maggie switched gears and followed her growing interest in Dentistry.

Since 2011, Maggie’s aspirations in dentistry developed into a heartfelt passion. In her young career, she gathered valuable training and education in everything from General Dentistry to Orthodontics - with a few soft skills in-between. With her extensive training in hospitality, she brings along with her the platinum rule to, “Treat people how they want to be treated.” Understanding others needs and serving with compassion comes easy for Maggie where she is confident that she can help you get the uncompromising dental care you deserve.

When away from the office, she enjoys spending her time with her beautiful family and her three lovely boys who are more than enough to take up a most of her free time! But, in the brief moments when she can afford a break on Sunday mornings, she likes teaching her husband a thing or two on the links!
