Jessalyn touched down in Dr. Yee’s office in the 4th quarter of 2016. She came to us from upstairs where she worked the sideline of her mother, who has been a Registered Dental Assistant for 10+ years. Jessalyn worked in that pediatric dental office for 5 years and was thrilled to have an opportunity to bring her talents downstairs to assist Dr. Kirby in general practice. With teeth being first-string and sports running a close second on the depth chart of conversation, we think Jessalyn is a perfect fit; as she says, “Football is life.” She graduated from Sacramento State University in May 2016 and looks forward to furthering her education sometime in the future. She is 27 years old and growing, not only in age but in wisdom, knowledge, experience, and adventure. She does not have children yet, but does think of her sister’s children as her own; a 5 year old boy and a 9 year old princess. She is also a huge Beyoncé.
Nancy has been with our office since November 2016 and is the front office and bookkeeper for Dr. Kirby. Before working in our office, Nancy has been a patient since 1975 and has appreciated the fine dental care emanating from the building. Nancy and her husband were happy to have Dr. Kirby Yee uphold the standard of care when he came onboard. While Nancy is lucky to have great teeth, her sweetheart has given Dr. Yee a run for their money. Nancy has 25 years of experience running a medical office in Greenbrae, so she has volumes of experience in health care and insurance billing. She hopes to make the business end of your visits as painless and coordinated as humanly possible, while finding you the correct information and getting things done the first time. When not in the office Nancy spends quality time with her chocolate labs; Etta, Dexter and Ruby.

Joyce has been interested in the dental field ever since she had her baby tooth extracted when she was 6. Instead of being afraid, she wanted to watch her tooth get pulled. Since then, she has always wanted to pursue her dream in working in the dental profession. Joyce graduated from hygiene school at Taft College and immediately began her career in dental hygiene. In her spare time she likes to read fiction and play badminton. She loves animals and currently has four dogs: a Husky, German Shepard, Pomeranian, and a Dachshund.
Dr. Yee, or Kirby as we call him, has been practicing dentistry for about 25 years and has been in San Rafael for 11 years. After attending UC Berkeley, Dr. Yee studied at the University of the Pacific’s Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry, and graduated in 1993. When not in the office, Dr. Yee spends most of his free time with his family; wife Natalie, three children, and their beta fish. He is a baseball card and model train collector, as well as a big Bay Area sports fan. Dr. Yee also enjoys tennis, badminton, golf, baseball, and video gaming.
