Clinical Staff



chelsee-durham-dental-studioI joined the Durham Dental Studio team as a dental assistant in 2009, fresh out of school. I really appreciate the time she spent in training me on quality dentistry and how to help patients overcome their dental anxieties. A period of time was spent in another local Durham office, but my heart was with Dr. Estrada’s team, so I quickly returned. This is a great, laid-back team that takes pride in their work and truly cares about the comfort of their patients. I could not imagine working anywhere else.

Each week I dedicate my time to volunteer. I’ve been playing guitar and piano for years now and have recently been attempting to take on the drums. When not playing music I’m playing or watching sports. I enjoy hanging out with friends and family. I love going to the beach, camping, and snowboarding as much as possible.
