The Newhall Dental Arts Team
Brizia, Dental Hygienist
I am one of the Dental Hygienist at Newhall Dental Arts. My name is Brizia and I obtained my Bachelors Degree in Dental Hygiene from the University of Southern California. I been a part of this amazing team for a year, and love the way they make everyone feel like family. As a hygienist, I love when patients really appreciate and follow recommendations to improve their oral health and get to see the change themselves. Patients love my gentle approach to the procedures, and my caring attitude in their well being, which creates a trusting relationship between us.
Outside of the office I enjoy hanging out with friends, having a few cocktails and dancing the night away. I am always up for something fun and different. I love my family, and love having family gatherings. My mom and grandma, are the people in my life that always push me forward and tell me to “Never give up.” Along with my younger brother, they are the most important people in my life.
Christy Kossow-Lehmkuhl, Dental Hygienist
My name is Christy Kossow-Lehmkuhl, and I am a registered Dental Hygienist. I attended Pasadena City College to aquire my certification and Associates in Science; Dental Hygiene in 2011. I also have certifications in dental radiology, local anesthesia, CPR, nitrous oxide sedation, and use of dental lasers.
I joined Newhall Dental arts in May 2018. I have worked primarily in periodontics, and that is where my heart is in dentistry. I received an award at my Dental Hygiene School graduation from the Western Society of Periodontology, for my advanced work while I was in school.
Once a year, I go to the heart of Los Angeles to participate and offer my dental hygiene services in Care Harbor; a collaborative effort to help the unemployed, homeless, and low wage earners with varying aspects of their health.
I love having daily interactions with my patients and my co-workers. I find it very rewarding to get to know each and every one of my patients, and develop a friendship with them. I am fascinated by learning the details of my patients trades and professions, and having them share their wisdom with me. It is fun to hear about their families and their trips to interesting and beautiful places. I can’t wait to meet you if we haven’t met already!
Having practiced dentistry for a total of 9 years(if you include school clinic), I have had patients and co-workers tell me many times that I am gentle, thorough, and fun to work with. I like to joke around alot, and have a good time!
A little about me: I have a husband, two dogs and a cat, we adore our furbabies. We are big animal lovers, and would have more if we could! We are Green Bay Packer Fanatics. I love to sing. I have sung since I was able to talk, and have sung in competitions, the national anthem for sporting events, and love to do karaoke. I also love to dance, draw and paint. I got very good at nail art when it was popular. I can speak a good amount of Spanish, I learned it back in high school and have done a decent job carrying it with me. My husband and I seek out new adventures in traveling, nature, restaurants, museums, concerts, sporting events and of course, anything to do with animals.
I had experienced many adversities and hardships in my lifetime. I have pride in how I kept the discipline to navigate my life, and turned trials into opportunities to become stronger, smarter, resilient and creative. For that reason my favorite quote is “Fall seven times, stand up eight.”
Bridget Jordan, Front Office Receptionist
I was born and raised in the San Fernando Valley and attended St.Genevieve HS, I then went to Pierce College which led me to Bryman College of Dental trade. I have since been in dentistry for sixteen years and joined Newhall Dental Arts two years ago. It is a nice place to work as I enjoy daily interactions with our patients because it really feels like home, I also enjoy that I live 18 minutes from work. In 1989 my husband and I and moved out to the Santa Clarita Valley and knew we wanted to start a family. I took time off after the move to raise one handsome son and three beautiful daughters. I have been married to my husband Harry for thirty years and recently became a proud mom to a puppy named Tequila who came to us unexpectedly, she has been a blessing as all my children are off in college or graduated and working full time. I am an avid fan of the Los Angeles Dodgers who play my favorite sport of all time, baseball. My favorite place to relax and unwind is the beach and an even better way to spend my days off are visiting my children in the South Bay and San Diego areas.
