Dr. Ronald Duffin
Dr. Duffin graduated from the University of Washington in 1989 and shortly thereafter established his practice in Hemet. He has continued his educational studies in a variety of areas including: dental implants, cosmetic dentistry, periodontics, endodontics, restorative dentistry, full-mouth reconstruction and sedation dentistry.
Vick graduated from the University of Missouri in Kansas City and has been a dental hygienist for 35 years. That experience is part of what makes Vicki so amazing at what she does. She has worked for Dr. Duffin for 19 years and when you are in her chair Dr. Duffin knows you are in good hands. When Vicki is not working she enjoys her family and loves to be outdoors. Gardening and hiking are two of her favorite activities.
Jennifer began her dental career in 1988 as a Registered Dental Assistant. She transferred to the front office in 1996 but still has the knowledge and abilities to work hands on with the patients in the back office. She has expert knowledge in working with the insurance companies to be sure our patients get the maximum benefits within their policies. Jennifer resides in Yucaipa with her two teenage daughters now, but grew up in Rancho Cucamonga. She loves the small town feel in Yucaipa but appreciates the amenities that Hemet has to offer.
My name is Sarah. I am a Registered Dental Assistant and have assisted in many areas of dentistry including surgical, endodontics and hygiene. I have loved working for Dr. Duffin during the past 16 years because he is honest and loyal and dedicated to his patients. I have three beautiful daughters and we enjoy hiking together. I also love running, acting, and modeling.
I am Sonia. I am an RDA and have worked as a dental assistant in Hemet for the past 12 years. I love working with our patients and it is very rewarding to help them achieve heathy, beautiful smiles. I am very family oriented and enjoy spending time with my daughter just hanging out or traveling.
Jessica became a part of Dr. Duffin's team in 2016 but has been in the dental field since 2002. Her favorite part about her position with Dr. Duffin, is that she is able to handle front office operations as well as assist the doctor with patients on the clinical side of things. She says it's the best of both worlds.
She was born and raised in the Hemet & San Jacinto Valley areas. Among her many other talents she is an asset to our practice as she is bilingual.
Outside of the dental office, Jessica likes to spend time with her family and watch her kids play soccer. Jessica has 5 children ranging from 15 years old to 1 year old that keep her a very busy lady.
I didn't just want to work for anyone... I've been blessed to have the opportunity to work for Dr. Duffin and become a part of his staff in 2017.
One of the things I enjoy about working in the Dental field is seeing how changing a patient's smile transforms their lives. I have been in the Dental field since 1988, most of those years in General Dentistry and Orthodontics.
I have a wonderful husband, 4 children ages from 25-15 and 1 daughter in law. Our two sons are in the United States Military. In our free time we love to travel, camp, and drive around in our new hot rod built by my hubby.
