Meet the Team

Here’s our Angel!

As lead assistant, Angel is popular with all the patients she treats. After many years in the hospitality industry, she will soon celebrate her 7th anniversary as a Registered Dental Assistant with Drs Hill and Schneidmiller. Maybe she’s drawn to healthcare because she has 14 brothers and 2 sisters…there always bound to be someone in need! Angel is particularly proud of any procedure that provides pain relief to a patient. Living in San Diego’s East County for many years, she enjoys the many aspects of life here: from shopping to car shows to Octoberfest! Angel says she works with Drs Hill and Schneidmiller because “they are great dentists; fun, caring and kind.”

Get to know our Hygiene Specialist, Eva!

We like to call her our ‘Hygenius’ due to her attention to periodontal detail when she performs cleaning treatments. A world traveler, she doubtless has encountered many cultures and levels of dental care, which is probably why she particularly enjoys performing Scale and Root Planing procedures (frequently preventing the need for surgical intervention for those patients). Eva loves San Diego for its diversity and beautiful outdoor locations. Her favorite day off consists of spending time outdoors with her husband and family. She works with Drs Hill and Schneidmiller because “they are the most kind and sincere doctors I have worked with. I love how honest and caring they are towards the patients.”


Danae is a terrific fit with our established team of dedicated healthcare workers! As a student of science, she quickly adapted to a career in dental hygiene and found it gave her the opportunity to meet new people. Her quick wit has made her a fun addition to the office!
One of her goals is to help folks “down the path to improved oral and overall health” by spending time one-on-one with patients. The people are the best part!
Danae likes to stay busy: painting, cooking, learning new languages. She would love a future that includes exploring the world, more time with family and friends, plus LOTS of animals!
She chooses to work with Drs Hill and Schneidmiller because “they are unfailingly thoughtful, kind and friendly people.”

Your Front Office Manager, Shannon!

Shannon is a patient’s best friend in her position as Front Office Manager! With 20 years of experience, her aim is to see each patient achieve dental health and be happy with their visit here. She is adept at juggling insurance nuances, treatment plan financing and new patient scheduling with one hand while handling COVID 19 prescreening with the other!

Her multitasking is not limited to dental office issues: Shannon is a city girl at heart who also appreciates country life! She has journeyed to the Atlantic and Pacific islands so far, and her dreams of traveling across the pond are in her near future. She is a creative person with a passion for design. She believes that there is always something exciting to look forward to and inspiration can be found anywhere!

Shannon made the decision to work with Drs Hill and Schneidmiller because “I could tell that they were an honest and sincere couple. I appreciate working in a dental office where they have a loyal patient base, are honest and trustworthy, along with having a great team to grow and build with.”

Anette has Joined Us!

Not only a Registered Dental Assistant (graduating with highest honors), Anette also has an Associate’s Degree in Psychology—which comes in handy within a dental office! Her last five years working alongside doctors further enhanced her passion for dentistry, so she is determined to pursue a degree in Dental Hygiene as well.

Her journey into dentistry began as a child, sitting in the orthodontist’s chair. ‘After having braces, I always found teeth fascinating!’ Anette is well aware of the profound difference it makes to have a healthy smile.

She spends her spare time enjoying her family, friends and her fur-child, Meeko! A true nature-lover, you can always bet on Anette hiking trails around town, away from all the concrete.
In fact, her dream life would include living in a country setting here in San Diego. Morning strolls among birds and trees would be the best!

Anette chose to work with Drs Hill and Schneidmiller because “they are kind people and truly value their staff and patients.”
