Registered Dental Assistant, Clinical Coordinator, and Lab Technician

Hey everyone! My name is Essence and I'm the clinical coordinator and lab technician at Ashraf Orthodontics. I have been an orthodontic assistant since 2000 and I have been part of our wonderful practice since 2007. I absolutely love my job. It is so gratifying to be involved in helping create beautiful smiles for our patients.

I grew up in Bay Point, CA and currently reside in Novato. My husband DeMarcus and I have a daughter, Indie, who was born in September 2019. My interest involves spending time with my family, including my two dogs, Foxie and Lucy. I enjoy photography, in front of and behind the camera. I also love traveling, shopping and scuba diving!

I was born in Costa Rica and grew up in San Rafael, CA. I love to travel, most of the time to tropical places, camp and make arts and crafts. My daughter Natalia is on her way to become an RN, Class of 2026. I also enjoy spending time with family and friends!
