Kelly N. Kaban, DDS

Kelly is a Huntington Beach native who grew up attending schools in Costa Mesa and Newport Beach.  She graduated from the University of California, Berkeley with her Bachelor of Science degree in Molecular Environmental Biology. Her research interests in field biology carried her on a journey through the South Pacific, including Hawaii and French Polynesia. Despite her love for the outdoors, her career aspirations eventually shifted from academia to dentistry where she made the decision to return to school.  She graduated from Loma Linda University School of Dentistry with honors in 2017 and obtained her Doctorate of Dental Surgery degree.

Kelly enjoys traveling, painting, learning languages, and staying active both in the gym and outdoors.

Edna Carrasco

Edna Carrasco

Edna has been a part of Dr. Kaban’s team for thirteen years and is, in many respects, the heart of the practice.  She is a Registered Dental Assistant, but also manages the front office. Her skills are as good as they get. Patients, friends and guests are greeted by her customer service, enthusiasm, and infectious personality.  The most common question asked by patients is “Is Edna here today?” if they do not see her or hear her when they first come in.

Family is very important to her and she spends a lot of time with them. She also enjoys exercising, cycling, hiking, and traveling.
