Britney Goguen –  RDA-EF 

Hello, everyone my name is Brittany Goguen, I’m very excited to be a part of Dr. Lazaar’s dental team! I’ve been a Registered Dental Assistant with Extended Functions for the last 5 years and working in dental for the past 9 years. As a lifelong Bay Area resident, I attended the University of the Pacific, Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry for Extended Functions, and San Jose City College for Dental Assisting. I always knew I wanted to work in the dental field and truly enjoy coming to work every day!  When I’m not practicing dentistry, you can find me on my yoga mat or spending time with my daughter Brooke and my husband Michael.
