Meet our Team
Diana Breymeyer, Financial Co-ordinator
I have been working in the dental field since 1986; and it has been my pleasure to work with Dr. Heap since 1996. I enjoy using my years of experience to help patients understand their dental needs and what steps are necessary to achieve good oral health. Because of my extensive background, I am able and like to maximize our clients’ dental insurance benefits as well as plan their treatment in an efficient, timely manner. When a patient walks into our office they’re not just a number; they’re treated with the utmost respect – like family!
I was born and raised in a small farm town in Illinois and married Barry Breymeyer in 1977. Our eldest daughter, Renee, was born there. We moved to Arizona in 1984, where our son, Lucas, joined the family. We are now the proud grandparents of 3! I love cooking and baking, bike riding and camping. On summer weekends, you’ll most likely find us at our “getaway” property in north-eastern Arizona.
Patricia Taylor, Business Manager
I am proud to be a part of a great group of people whose daily goal is to provide quality of care and comfort to each and every patient. We strive to exceed expectations! Keeping up with our own growing families, finding out what’s new in their lives, watching them marry then bring in their own children is SO rewarding! Working with my husband allows me to share the same vision and enthusiasm for our work and future growth.
My grandparents were avid gardeners! As a child I spent many hours beside them listening and learning. Through them I inherited a love for gardening and cooking. This comes in handy for our large family gatherings. I try to instill this passion in my children and grandchildren.
Sharing a love of travel with my husband, I have been fortunate to have visited the birthplaces of family in Italy and Argentina. This has served to strengthen family ties there, as well as providing insight into their culture.
Kelsie Sanchez, Dental Assistant
I enjoy being a part of this great team, we are truly a family. I am a certified Expanded Function Dental Assistant and have been in the dental field for over 11 years. Every day, I look forward to using my advanced skills to help our patients better their oral health every day.
Outside of the office, as an urban liver, I enjoy exploring my city, riding my bicycle, and reading a great book!
Michele Bobik, Appointment Coordinator
Originally from the rolling hills in upstate New York, I’ve lived most of my life in sunny Arizona where I first started in the dental field.
As a scheduling coordinator, I am one of your first contacts at Beautiful Dentistry. My main responsibility is to keep the schedule running smoothly and to make your entrance into our practice as pleasant and comfortable as possible.
The best part of my position is meeting new people and being able to accommodate their busy lives while emphasizing the importance of their patient’s needs and concerns. I appreciate how happy and positive the environment is here and how we all work so well together to provide the best care for you.
I feel I have finally found my external family when I became a team member of Beautiful Dentistry.
In my free time, I enjoy basking in the sun, outdoor activities, working out at the gym and watching sports.
Nikki Oester, RDH, BSDH
I was born and raised in the beautiful Pacific Northwest in the small fishing town of Gig Harbor located just south of Seattle along the Puget Sound. Growing up, I always knew that I wanted to become a dental hygienist. I loved the idea of creating relationships with patients based on shared goals of working together while improving their oral and systemic health. I graduated from the University of Washington with a Bachelor of Science and went on to receive a Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene from Eastern Washington University and graduated with Magna Cum Laude honors. I have received various awards and recognition for my commitment to the advancement and profession of dental hygiene, along with my dedication to community service. I have been recognized by the Western Society of Periodontology for my interest and practice of periodontics and was inducted into the Sigma Phi Alpha Dental Hygiene Society for outstanding academic achievement within my dental hygiene didactic and clinical education.
My husband Derek and I were married on the beautiful island of Maui and we have a son, William, and a baby girl on the way. As a family, we enjoy the outdoors with our two dogs, Oscar and Ace. We cherish our time together as a family and love every minute of being parents. My husband was also born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, so we love the Arizona sunshine! Although, we have a new found appreciation for rain after living in Arizona for several years now.
I not only have a strong affinity for dentistry, but for people. I love working alongside our patients to improve their oral health and achieve success through relationships built on teamwork and trust. As part of Dr. Heap’s team at Beautiful Dentistry, we work together cohesively with each other and our patients. I care deeply about our patients and value each and every relationship that I create and foster over the years of working together. I don’t consider this “work”- it’s my passion and I find myself incredibly lucky to be part of Dr. Heap’s team at Beautiful Dentistry where we really are family. I look forward to meeting you!
Terry Wallace, RDH, BSDH
I grew up in the small suburban town of Orange, Connecticut, in a traditional Catholic Italian family with hard-working parents, loving grandparents and 2 brothers and 2 sisters, and a large extended close family. I eventually moved to Arizona in 1998, fell in love and married. My husband and I started our family by becoming foster parents which let us to adopting our 2 daughters. Knowing I needed them as much as they needed me, we completed our family by adding 3 dogs and 2 cats which I love more than I can explain. I love entertaining for my family and friends. My door is always open for a home cooked meal and a glass of wine.
I have accomplished a few of my dreams before becoming a Dental Hygienist. I first started my education in fashion and business in the hopes of becoming a buyer in the fashion industry. I was on my way with an internship in Manhattan with a large company. It was thrilling and short lived. Discovering my true self, I was just a small town girl wanting to be a caregiver.
During my New York days, I decided to learn self-defense. A girl in the streets of New York wasn’t safe. After 10 years of training and teaching Tao Kwon Do, I earned my second degree Black Belt.
Getting accepted into the University Of Bridgeport- Fones School Of Dental Hygiene was exhilarating. It was so exciting knowing that the founding father of our profession was Alfred C Fones- and this was the first dental hygiene school in history. Graduating with my BSDH I was ready to work. I couldn’t be more proud and more ready to be at my best.
I have been a Dental Hygienist for over 25 years and I am still just as passionate about my profession. I am still rewarded when I have a patient look at themselves and see a healthy beautiful smile. I enjoy educating and creating relationships with my patients. I work hard to earn my patients trust so they can relax and enjoy a thorough and gentle cleaning. I am doing my job great for you to be healthy. Being part of Beautiful Dentistry is like being with my family and friends. I look forward to coming to work doing what I love in a place we all have the same ethics and goals.
Jaimie Kapadia, RDH, BSDH
I moved to Arizona about 3 yrs ago from Illinois with my husband and my two beautiful children. My husbands’ job and the long winters in Illinois brought us here to the sunshine state and we couldn’t have been happier.
In 2008, I graduated with bachelors in dental hygiene from Southern Illinois University. I have been practicing for 10 years and I love helping patients feel confident with their gums, teeth, and smile. I enjoy hearing them say, “Wow, my teeth feel so good and clean!”
Working for Dr. Heap has truly been a rewarding experience. I have never seen a dentist care so deeply for his patients and the outcome of their oral health. Together Dr. Heap and I share a common goal of empowering our patients with the knowledge that Maintaining oral health plays a key role in their overall well-being.
When I am not at work, I enjoy spending quality time with my husband and my kids. We love spending weekends hiking, trying out new restaurants, socializing with friends and jumping in our pool on hot summer days.
Angie Riley, RDH
Originally from the Midwest, I moved to Arizona in 2008 with my husband and two kids. I’ve been a dental hygienist for almost 20 years. My favorite thing about being a hygienist is forming a relationship with my patients. I enjoy being able to catch up on their lives each time I see them. That is what I love about working with Dr. Heap, he has that same passion for getting to know his patients and providing them with the best care possible.
When I’m not working at Beautiful Dentistry I enjoy getting outside any chance I can to enjoy nature. I love to camp and hike, and try to head north as much as possible in the summer months.
