Meet Our Team


Hello, my name is Michelle.  I am a Registered Dental Assistant, and am proud to be the right hand to Dr. Popp for the last nineteen years.  My experience in the Dental Office as a child was a wonderful one; a comfortable setting, no fear, and I had a wonderful dentist.

It is my pleasure to make sure you are comfortable and that your needs are met beyond your expectations.  Dr. Popp has restored my smile with veneers, so when I see you, ask to see my smile!  I’ll be happy to show you!  I enjoy working in Coronado, which has become a second home to me.  I love bringing my family to Coronado Beach, the Ferry Landing, and all the local restaurants that Coronado has to offer.


Hi! My name is Marni and it has been my absolute pleasure to work with Dr. Popp and her fantastic team for six years now! I have been in the dental field for twenty years, starting as a Registered Dental Assistant in the back, before learning how to take care of patients’ scheduling, financial, and insurance needs, and moving up to the front office.

I have had the privilege of working with some great dentists in the past, but working with Dr. Popp and now Dr. Bailey has been an amazing experience, unlike any other I’ve had before. Dr. Popp and Dr. Bailey are truly mouth physicians, and they have both helped me realize how much the oral health affects the overall health of the body. Each treat what she sees, but they are also acutely aware of what signs and symptoms may be present in the mouth, and what these may indicate. I’m very fortunate to be a part of a team that is constantly striving to offer the absolute best patient care possible.

Dr. Popp and Dr. Bailey have always stressed the need to keep learning, and their passion is contagious – attending many continuing education courses, on a variety of subjects throughout the year, keeps us busy and gives us plenty of things to look forward to! When I’m not here in the office, you might find me at The Strand, or Coronado Beach with my two amazing children. I love reading and spending time with family and friends.


My name is Yesi and I’m a Dental Assistant working towards my Register Dental Assistant license. I’ve been in the exciting dental world for 2 years and I’m very passionate about what I do. I’ve been working with Dr. Popp for over a year now; so far it has been a year of meeting our amazing patients, building relationships and always learning new things.

I enjoy working on the beautiful island of Coronado with such an awesome team. I am a mother of two gorgeous daughters. On my time off I enjoy Coronado beach and jogging along The Hotel Del. I’m always looking forward to coming in to our office and helping others improve their health.


My name is Josh and I am the Registered Dental Hygienist here at Advanced Dentistry. I was born and raised in Florida, about an hour south of Tampa, and have been in the dental world for over a decade now. I took a brief break while serving in the US Navy as a Hospital Corpsman, traveling the world on a guided missile destroyer and further advancing my medical background.

I truly enjoy nerding out on dental studies, staying current on any and all related material, as well as diving into fitness and nutrition. I try to provide top notch, quality care to each and every patient because I expect no less myself and neither should my patients. It’s an absolute pleasure to call Advanced Dentistry my home and the team and patients family. Outside of work you can find me exploring all that San Diego has to offer! Don’t be afraid to say Hi! Only if you’ve recently brushed though, thanks!


Hi, my name is Roshelle and I have been in the dental field since 2005! I obtained my dental assistant certification and x/ray license at Grossmont College and I consider myself an expert in building patient relations. I am dedicated to providing exceptional customer service to all our patients and working with our patients and their schedules to provide them care at their convenience.

I am also highly experienced in all other aspects of the front office. I am happily married and have a beautiful daughter. In my free time I enjoy planting succulents, making salsa, paddle boarding, yoga, and spending quality time with my family and friends!
