Our Las Vegas Dental Team
Melissa, Director of Operations
Growing up I didn't have a perfect smile, in fact I was bullied during my early years because of it. At the age of 13 I finally had all of my adult teeth, and I realized how important feeling comfortable with one’s smile is. I chose the dental field for the opportunity to use my experience to help others and provide them with the means to make a change.
For the last 6 years I have worked alongside Dr. Mohtashami, doing everything from assisting him as a dental assistant, to working in the front office. On a typical day, you may see me entering your paperwork, verifying your insurance, taking x-rays, assisting in your procedure, or fixing a technical issue in the office. My biggest priority is the patient experience and ensuring we help change the perception of what a dental visit can be.
Working with Dr. Mohtashami has provided me with the opportunity to further my education, work with the latest technologies, and deliver the highest quality dental care. The combination of his passion, dedication, and expertise has led the way for All Bright Dental to become the team it is…a family: one that I take pride in being a part of.
Andrea, Insurance Coordinator
I always knew from a very early age that I wanted to work in the dental field…somewhere! I was the crazy kid growing up who would beg for braces to fix the massive crowding and bite issues of my smile. Once I got braces, my confidence exploded! After graduating from Eastern Washington University in 2007, I was fortunate to find work in a dental lab and learned everything I could about finishing different types of prosthetics. I was given the opportunity to move to the front office where I finally got to put a face to all the beautiful smiles I was helping create, and I loved it!
Recently, the military moved our family to Las Vegas and I was even more fortunate to join Dr. Mohtashami’s team, and what a team it is! Dr. Mohtashami’s chairside manor is amazing and I have seen the most phobic of patients walk out of our office cured! The whole team is committed to the very best of patient care and always learning and expanding our knowledge of the dental field. It’s a team I thoroughly enjoy being a part of!
Kim, Dental Hygienist
As a single mother of three small children, interested in helping people maintain their heath, I chose dental hygiene as my career field. It allows me time with my children and gives me the satisfaction of helping others to maintain good oral health.
As a hygienist at All Bright Dental for more than eleven years, I’ve had the opportunity to work at a wonderful practice with great patients. I also get to work with a team that is committed to advancing their skills and knowledge to provide exceptional care for our patients in all areas. I admire Dr. Mohtashami’s focus and attention to every detail because it helps our patients achieve excellent oral health. The entire team and Dr. Mohtashami really work well together to bring patients an amazing dental experience, and I am happy to be part of this team.

Danelle, Treatment Coordinator
From a young age I had a huge overbite and wished I had a better smile. I was fortunate enough to have braces and attain my dream smile; it changed my confidence, outlook, and my entire life! I was a stay at home mother for a long time and while staying home I was able to attend a Dental Assisting program through the Community College in Casper Wyoming, I knew once my youngest son was a little bit older that I would jump right into the dental field and start changing lives. Although I’m not assisting in the back office, I get the opportunity to work with each patient one on one and help with any questions or concerns as their treatment coordinator. Working alongside Dr. Mohtashami is so rewarding, his guidance, knowledge, and expertise is unbeatable. We are a team and a family, it’s so rewarding to be a part of changing patient lives one smile at a time.
