Meet Our Team

Vicki, Patient Coordinator


I have had the pleasure of working for Dr. Nehawandian, at Top Down Dental, since 1993.

I am proud to be part of a team that is so dedicated to our patients overall health. I truly value the relationships we build with our patients, and enjoy helping our patients achieve and enhance their dental health. I love greeting our new patients and helping them feel comfortable with our practice.

I have learned a great deal working with Dr. Nehawandian and value and respect the exceptional level of care Dr. Nehawandian offers our patients.

In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family, bowling and gardening. Outside of the office you will usually find me at a hockey rink or volleyball game with my children.

I truly appreciate Dr. Nehawandian’s thoroughness and quality of care, and proud to be a part of this team. I love establishing meaningful relationships with our patients and providing comfortable and comprehensive care.

I value all the opportunities Dr. Nehawandian provides us in furthering our education and knowledge in order to serve our patients better.

At home, I enjoy reading, watching movies and activities with my family.

Kim, Registered Dental Hygienist

Hi, my name is Kim and I am a Registered Dental Hygienist.  I am a long time resident, raised in Saratoga, but I live now in Bonny Doon.  I have a wonderful husband and a fantastic daughter.

My entry into the field of dentistry was 33 years ago as an RDA.  I went to Foothill College and graduated from their Dental Hygiene program in 1985.  Building personal relationships with patients is very rewarding to me.  I love the environment of our office. Our patients are top-notch, our training is continuous and Dr. Nehawandian’s desire for her team to succeed in their goals is always so gratifying.  One of the things I enjoy most about dentistry is to see how changing a patient’s smile transforms their lives.

This all just adds to a life that is fulfilled with family, friends, camping, knitting, sewing, gardening and all things outdoors!

Dayna, Patient Coordinator

I have been in the dental field since 2011 and have had the opportunity to work both back and front office. I graduated as an RDA in 2014 from San Jose City College and am now your advocate for Dr. Nancy’s TopDown Approach to healthy living! I am proud to work for such a caring doctor who strives for nothing less of the best for her patients. I enjoy making one on one connections with each of our patients and am excited to continue to work alongside Dr. Nancy and our outstanding team to help our amazing patients care for their mouth, body and life!

Julie,  Registered Dental Hygienist

Julie, Registered Dental Hygienist

I have had the privilege of serving the Bay Area as a Dental Hygienist for 10 years and I am very excited to be joining Dr. Nehawandian’s team this year. As a Dental Hygienist my top priority is to come along side my patient to support, encourage, and educate them as time goes by and their unique dental needs evolve. Dr. Nehawandian’s top down approach echoes my own personal philosophy in that I have a desire to help my patients establish greater health and wellness with dentistry as a key step. Reducing inflammation, preventing pain, and creating beautiful smiles is my passion.

When I am away from the office I enjoy traveling with my husband, cooking, and volunteering. Some of my volunteering projects have included tutoring at the College of Adaptive Arts, feeding a feral cat colony for population control, and using my dental hygiene skills to provide services to our veterans. I look forward to meeting you and helping you achieve your health and smile goals.
