Melissa – Office Manager


I've been in the dental field since 2000, and I've have been working for Dr. Grabow since 2003. I love working for the best orthodontist and am so proud of the results we get for our patients. It is a privilege to work with our patients and their families, whether it's with financial arrangements, insurance questions or scheduling their appointments. When I am not at work, I enjoy being outdoors, exercising, traveling, cooking, and spending time with family and friends.

Tonya – Registered Dental Assistant


I've been in the dental field since 1976 and working with Dr. Grabow as one of his assistants since 1996. I love being part of a practice that truly cares about their patients. When I'm not working, I love spending time with family and friends, as well as enjoying the outdoors.

Carla – Receptionist


I have been working in the dental field since 1977, with a break to raise my children. I am so happy to be working with Dr. Grabow. I feel so blessed to work at such an awesome orthodontic office, with the best patients in town! I am here at the front desk to assist you with your orthodontic needs. I spend my time off enjoying my family and friends, gardening and traveling.

Sara – Dental Assistant


I have been working in the dental field since 2011. I am fortunate to live and work in a place as beautiful as Tuolumne County and with a doctor and staff that truly care about each patient’s smile. In my time off, I love to be outdoors enjoying nature with my husband and son.
