Front Office Administrator
Here at San Elijo Dental, I am part of a caring team that is willing to go the extra mile to ensure your comfort and confidence in us. We strive to make each patient experience with our practice a positive one. We will listen to your needs, explain your options, and provide the personalized care that you desire. We want you to be happy with your decision in choosing us, as your dental office.
I began my dental career in 1992 as a registered dental assistant and after 12 years chair-side, I transitioned to front desk management. I get great satisfaction in a job well done, from daily duties to excellent patient care. I have been married for over 20 years and we have 2 amazing teenage girls. As a family, we enjoy tent camping with our "camping group" which can consist of up to 5 families. During the summer months you will find us in the local mountains or at the beach enjoying the waves. Community service has always been big part of our family; from Church organized events, yearly book-drives for non-profit organizations and mission trips abroad. I hope that you will be as happy with our practice as I am being here to serve you. We want our office to feel like you are coming home to visit family.
Carrie was born and raised in North County, San Diego. She graduated from Torrey Pines High School and went on to earn her Bachelor’s Degree in Communication Studies from UCLA in 2001. After graduating college and entering the work force, Carrie realized that she wanted to pursue a career that provided a positive working environment like she always admired in her father’s dental practice. This curiosity lead her to explore all career opportunities in the dental field. After thoughtful research, Carrie decided that she loved the role of a dental hygienist and she went on to receive her hygiene degree from San Joaquin Valley College. She has a genuine passion for helping people and being an advocate for dental and total body health. She has been working since 2008 in San Diego as a dental hygienist and she had the good fortune to work with Dr. Karina Gregg from 2008-2011. Carrie is delighted to be joining Dr. Gregg and her staff at San Elijo Dental. She is a devoted wife, mother, daughter, friend, and registered dental hygienist, and she looks forward to being your trusted hygienist for life!

Outside of dentistry, Olesya spends time with her 3 yr old daughter. During her free time, Olesya likes to cook, go on hikes and visit the ocean and hang out at the beach! She is looking forward to meeting you & your family.
