Meet Our Team
Scott M. Jordan, DDS
Dr. Jordan is originally from the Midwest and was born and raised in South Bend, Indiana. He completed his undergraduate training at Purdue University, then it was on to Indiana University School of Dentistry for a dental degree in 1978. He moved to California to escape the cold winters and hot and humid summers. He has been taking care of families in the Encinitas area ever since. He and his wife Pam recently celebrated their 35th wedding anniversary. They have two grown children, Brooke and Brett.
Dr. Jordan takes several hours of post-graduate education annually to keep abreast of the advances continually shaping the field of dentistry. He is a member of several professional organizations including the American Dental Association, California Dental Association, San Diego Dental Society, and The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry.
He has been a member of the Academy of General Dentistry since 1982 and was awarded his fellowship in that organization in 1993.
He was selected for the past eight years for inclusion to "Guide to America's Top Dentists" by Consumers' Research Council of America. This is an independent research company based in Washington, DC that evaluates professional services throughout America.
He has been recognized in 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2013 for his dental excellence by being listed in San Diego Magazine as one of San Diego's best dentists. San Diego-area dentists were asked to vote for the dentist they would see if they needed a dentist for themselves.
Dr. Jordan is also a charter member of the Summit Dental Study Group and the Rancho Santa Fe Implant Study Group.
For the past eighteen years, Dr. Jordan has served as a clinical evaluator of new dental products for Clinical Research Associates – the "Consumer Reports" of the dental profession.
In his spare time, Dr. Jordan enjoys mountain biking, snowboarding, golf, gardening, and anything his kids are doing.
René - RDH (Registered Dental Hygienist)
I started as a dental assistant years ago, and I have been in the dental field longer than not! I received my degree in Dental Hygiene in Seattle, Washington, and I am also licensed in Nevada and California. I have worked with Dr. Jordan for over ten years and enjoy working with such a progressive team. I feel blessed to have so many special patients who help me learn and grow every day. My spare time is filled with family and fun! I am a very proud Mom of three grown sons and love many activities from motorcycling and boating to dining and dancing!
Susie - RDH (Registered Dental Hygienist)
I am a graduate of the USC Dental Hygiene program and have been doing hygiene for over twenty-five years. I started working for Dr. Jordan shortly after moving to Carlsbad from Orange County in 2000. I'm happy to be part of a team that feels like family and has been together for many years. I have been fortunate to work with many of the same patients for years and have enjoyed seeing them on my Mondays and Tuesdays. Outside of work, I love spending time with my three grown daughters, my husband of twenty-five years, and my friends. I also enjoy Charger football, hiking, shopping, and trying new recipes.
Maria - RDH (Registered Dental Hygienist)
Hi, my name is Maria. I graduated from the USC Dental Hygiene program almost 20 years ago. I feel very fortunate to have joined Dr. Jordan and his experienced team in early 2009. I truly enjoy working in an office with the latest technology and being able to take care of our lovely patients. When I'm not in my dental scrubs, I love spending time with my family and friends. I enjoy gardening, rollerblading, lazy summer days, and a good book!
Jessica - RDA (Registered Dental Assistant)
I have been a Dental Assistant since 1996, and I've been working with Dr. Jordan since 2008. My favorite part of the job is getting to know each and every one of my patients. I was born and raised in Encinitas, and I come from a family of long-time locals. In my spare time, I enjoy anything that involves the outdoors, traveling as much as possible, and spending time with my nieces, nephews, family, and friends. I'm also a certified trainer for 3M's True Definition Scanner. I enjoy teaching other dentists and their staff to use this exciting technology.
Tobi - RDA (Registered Dental Assistant)
I have worked in the dental field for over 20 years. I am proud to be a part of the amazing and professional staff here at Dr. Jordan's for the past four years. I appreciate a dentist who encourages continuing education not only for his staff, but also continues to stay up to date learning the latest technologies and training for our team. I hope to continue to work with Dr. Jordan and his staff for years to come! In my spare time, I enjoy being outside, riding my bike, and spending quality time with my family.
Monica - Office Manager
I have had the pleasure of working in the dental field for over seventeen years, starting in pediatric dentistry and orthodontics. For the past seven of those years, I have had the honor of working in general dentistry with Dr. Jordan and our amazing team of caring experts. I absolutely love interacting with our exceptional patients. They are our extended "family" and know that our office is their dental home where they are cared and loved! I have a wonderful husband of twenty-two years and three great kids who are my focus away from work. My other loves are cooking, gardening, cinema, and going to great music concerts!
Michelle - Financial Coordinator
I have been a front office team member for seven years. I love the family atmosphere at our office and enjoy welcoming patients to our practice, confident that they also will enjoy being part of our dental family. I especially enjoy the fact that many of our patients are now third generation, and we have had the pleasure of watching them grow! In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my husband and two sons, attending their water polo games, and hanging out with friends!
