In 1986 Alison founded San Diego Dental Personnel Service to be the leader in dental employment referral. “At the time, I was working as a RDA. My dentist was very supportive, and believed in the concept of this new business. In the very early days, I was able to continue working part time for him and get San Diego Dental Personnel Service started.” Alison’s vision remains, to provide the most comprehensive and quality focused referral to both employers and employees through a specific process. Since its inception, SDDPS has had an established reputation for consistent excellence in temporary, emergency, temp to perm, and permanent referrals. “I love the challenge of this business! Each office, every applicant, has unique requirements. I thrive on making great matches!”  Alison is active with community volunteer projects and her family. She enjoys the outdoor and country life with her husband, and when not working, they can be found in the vegetable garden or the barn with their horses, chickens, goats and dogs. Favorite past times include cooking with their daughters and friends, kayaking, hiking, and traveling to new destinations!



“There is nothing I enjoy more than getting that excited phone call when someone thanks me because they just got hired into their dream job!”  Jennifer believes San Diego Dental Personnel Service has the best applicants and clients and looks forward to new conversations every day! Prior to joining with SDDPS in 2003, Jen was employed in both general and specialty practices. She excels in determination! Always working for that perfect match! A nearly  San Diego native, devoted wife and mother, Jen and her husband can regularly be found cheering on their daughter’s soccer team! Jennifer has a continued quest for finding new, fun, fast and healthy recipes! It’s always a treat when Jennifer shares taste tests with the office!



As a student and world traveler, Melinda studied abroad in Egypt, India, China and South Korea. Upon college graduation from Knox with her bachelors in business and history, she returned to Seoul, South Korea for a year! Melinda joined San Diego Dental Personnel Service as office support and to direct and oversee our computer transition. She quickly felt at home in the dental employment field by developing relationships with both clients and employees and moved into a personnel coordinator position. “I don’t want to settle for good referrals, I try to make each referral the best for both the client and the applicant by listening and getting to know what they really need!”  Melinda has taken up running and recently finished her first ½ marathon!
