Meet the Team
Dr. Thomaszadeh believes her greatest asset in treating her patients is not her office or her most advanced piece of dental equipment. Without a doubt, it is her staff. They are a wonderful group who have a genuine love for dentistry.
Although I’ve only worked for Dr. Romanelli since 2016, I’ve been a Registered Dental Hygienist (RDH) for over 20 years. I’ve lived on the Central Coast for over 25 years including earning my undergraduate degree in kinesiology from Cal Poly. I earned my hygiene degree from Phoenix Community College while working weekends as a flight attendant. My husband and I live on acreage and have three grown children and lots of critters. I enjoy spending time with family and friends, caring for our pets, exercising, hiking, dancing, reading, and traveling. One of my passions is working with teens and young adults to help them flourish in the community.
Lisa, Office Manager
I was born and raised in Southern California and moved to the Central Coast in 1986. Mark (Dr Romanelli) and I met in high school and dated for 7 years prior to marrying in 1982. My first career was in banking where I worked my way through the ranks from bank teller to Branch Manager over an 18-year period. For the next 18 years I had the opportunity to be a “stay-at-home-mom” and raised our three sons. In 2007 I assumed the role of Office Manager where I manage the non-clinical operations of the practice. Away from the office I enjoy working out, fine food and wine, travel, pleasure reading, and spending time with our growing family and close friends.
I've been employed as a Registered Dental Assistant for over 25 years and am the newest member of Dr. Romanelli's team. I've lived on the Central Coast for most of my adult life. Away from the office I enjoy fun with my family.
