Judi McKenna Edwards, Registered Dental Hygienist
I grew up here in Palo Alto with a loving family and wild times.
I went to the University of New Mexico, Las Vegas and got my dental hygiene degree from Foothill College. I enjoy keeping the legacy of my father, Dr. JB’s practice going.
My passions are my husband of 23 years, our daughter and my dog Cassie-Jo. I love spending time with my family, going on walks, friends, cooking and being out doors. I enjoy my family; most of you know my father J.B. who started McKenna Family Dentistry back in 1958. He is one of a kind and has the biggest heart. He is a teacher of love and life. He retired and moved with his dogs to the mountains in Placerville, CA. I still see him quite often and he is doing well. We miss our daily hugs though.

I graduated from Foothill College dental assistant program in 1990 and attended UCSF for Extended Functions Program in 1992. Shortly after graduating from dental assisting I attended the Hygiene program at Foothill College and received my license in 1995. I joined the family at McKenna’s in 1991.
I am a mother of two, Alexis and Joey and also have a puppy Coco. I love to be with my family. I also love the outdoors, cooking and going to our cabin at Clearlake where we enjoy water skiing, wake boarding and tubing.
Diana Brinkman, Registered Dental Assistant
I have been apart of the back office staff for 11 years and a Registered Dental Assistant for over 26 years. My first priority is patient comfort and I am always striving to be one step ahead of the doctors to make each patient appointment smooth and efficient as possible.
When I am not at work I enjoy gourmet cooking, entertaining, and spending time with my family. I also enjoy playing online games where I meet people of all ages and from all around the world.
Beverly Reyes, Hygiene Coordinator
My name is Beverly Reyes and I have been working at McKenna Family Dentistry for over 6 years now. I am the hygiene coordinator and handle all of the hygiene schedules, so if you call to schedule a cleaning appointment you will probably to talking with me.
On some days you will not see me in the office and that is because I also work as a Marriage and Family Therapist Intern (MFTI). I am working towards my 3000 hours in order to become licensed.
My boyfriend and I have been in a relationship for almost 5 years and we have a 2-year-old daughter named Alana and a dog named Sandy.
I need a balance of spontaneity in order to keep me sane. I love to travel, go snowboarding, and spending time with my family and friends. I’m trying to simplify my life and am trying not to concentrate on the material things in life. I’ve learned that spending my time and energy on making long lasting relationships and memories is what matters the most.
