She received a BS in Dental Hygiene from UCSF in 1991 and also holds a Dental Assisting Certificate from Foothill College.

Dr Jan GabusMarisol Lopez, RDA

Marisol Lopez, RDA

Marisol is from El Salvador and attended college to pursue a career in Business Administration. She realized it was not what she wanted to do, so she moved to California and took as many classes as possible to learn English. A friend suggested she get a job at a dental office, she liked it and started taking dental assistant classes at San Francisco City College. She graduated as a Registered Dental Assistant and has been working with Dr. Gabus for over 25 years, enjoying what she does and the relationships she’s built with patients. She also enjoys cooking and gardening.

In 2015, she received a BS in Nutrition. A practicing RDA, she hopes to further her education and plans to apply to dental school in the future. She enjoys cooking, running, and is always looking for new exciting hiking trails in the area.


Dr Jan GabusMarisa McKay

Marisa McKay, Appointment Coordinator

Marisa joined J Gabus Dental 10 years ago, bringing with her a solid background in patient services. She soon became proficient handling dental insurance claims while scheduling appointments and becoming the “go-to” person for a variety of questions patients have. When not behind the desk, working with patients or answering the phones, she likes to explore the changes taking place in the Menlo Park and nearby cities.
