The Team

Let us introduce ourselves


Emma Hamilton

Office Manager 

My name is Emma, the office manager at McGrady Dental Group. I started in the dental field in 2011 as an RDA but love the challenge the front provides. I love to help others, promote health and educate our patients. My goal is to provide the best dental experience from your first phone call with us to scheduling your next appointment.
I am originally from England and moved here with my family at the age of 2. I am a proud mother to my beautiful baby girl Cora and a husky named Delilah. I am an avid environmentalist and enjoy hiking, spending time outdoors, cooking and painting.

Loren Phanhthilath

Lead RDA 

My name is Loren, I am an registered dental assistant at Mcgrady Dental Group. I have been a dental assistant since 2011. I became interested in the dental field when I had braces as a teen and decided to pursue my career straight out of high school! My favorite thing about being an RDA is connecting with patients of all kinds and making everyone’s visit a positive one. I love working with kids and making their experience fun, upbeat and educational. When I am not at work, I like to spend time with my daughter Olive, and my husband Scotty. I enjoy embroidering, spending time outside, rollerskating and playing with our pet dog and rabbit.


Katie Knipmeyer


Originally from Dallas, Katie moved to Poway and later graduated from Poway High School. She came on board as a chairside assistant in August 2019 and has enjoyed every moment of being here. Outside the office Katie loves being in the outdoors going camping, hiking, off-roading, and traveling.

Angie Lopez


My name is Angelica Lopez but you can call me Angie. I am one of the Registered Dental Hygienist at McGrady Dental Group. I have been a Registered Dental Hygienist since 2017. I grew up in the dental field because my mom is a Registered Dental Assistant. As a kid I would love to visit her at work and pretend to clean peoples teeth.I love helping patients get over the fear of coming into the office to get their teeth cleaned. As well as educating the patient about their oral health. When I am not in the office me and my boyfriend Owen are running behind our one year old daughter Bethany. We love to go for hikes, watch movies and cook at home.

P.S. We are expecting our second child this coming April 2021. Its a BOY!!
