Meet the Team
Shelby joined our staff in 2015. A native of Northern California, she attended Burney High School and Shasta College before graduating from the Butte County ROP Dental Assistant Program. Though one of the newest members of our care team, she reports that the amazing patients have already made her feel right at home. When not assisting Dr. Zufall in the office, she loves hunting, fishing, archery and doing crafts with her daughter.
Office administrator Deborah joined the staff in 2003. She loves working with the rest of the team to provide patients with a fun environment to learn about their dental health. Though she attended college farther south at Santa Rosa Junior College, she now loves living in Redding where she can hike trails, spend time at the lake and drive to the mountains. When not enjoying the outdoors or working hard to give patients the best possible dental experience, Deborah likes to spend time with friends and family and go on vacation.
Dental hygienist Melanie has worked with us since 2003 after graduating from Cal Poly SLO and then the Colorado Northwestern Dental Hygiene School. She has a lot of fun working with the office team and enjoys making patients feel like family. Melanie may not be fond of the Redding heat, but she loves the local opportunities to camp, snow ski, water ski, ride horses and most any other activity that will take her outside.
Jen has been providing great care to our patients as a dental assistant in the office since 1997. A local Enterprise High School alum, she graduated from the Butte County ROP Dental Assistant Program after also attending Shasta College. She loves working with her dental team “family” to provide the highest quality of care using new and updated services and techniques. As much as Jen loves gardening and travel, you’re most likely to find her with her husband at the volleyball court or soccer field cheering on their two talented children.
Amber is a proud member of Shasta College Dental Hygiene’s first graduating class. Hired as a dental hygienist in 2015, she loves working with our friendly patients and staff, where she says everyone is treated like family. A Redding local, Amber graduated from Shasta High School and Shasta College and loves everything about the area- the lakes, mountains, biking trails and even the hot weather. Her hobbies include yoga, running, reading, home decor and cake decorating.
You may know Shelly as the woman who always remembers your name and performs magic to make sure your appointment is scheduled exactly when you need it to be. She joined the office staff as our patient coordinator in 1993 and has been with us ever since. A Redding native, Shelly graduated from Shasta High School and her love of being near the mountains, lakes and oceans has helped keep her in the area. When not working hard to make your appointments convenient, she loves to hike and camp with her family.
