About Charles J. Dressman, Jr., DDS

Born in Cumberland, MD, I met my wife Diane while we attended the University of Notre Dame in 1979. We were married in 1983 and have three children: Danny, Brian, and Julianne. After graduating from the University of Maryland Dental school, I spent three years in the US Navy Dental Corps at Moffett Field and have been in private practice since 1987. It sounds cliché, but I chose health care because I really enjoy working with people and helping others. Diane and I were a lead couple of our church's social outreach program and I spent ten wonderful years coaching youth football, basketball and baseball. I am blessed to have a talented staff with great interpersonal skills and the concern and compassion you should expect in a dental office. We are committed to your health and comfort and appreciate the opportunity to provide your care.

Registered Dental Assistant

In 2003, I graduated from college to receive my Registered Dental Assistant certification. Since then I have continued to keep my studies up in the dental field and am certified in various specialties such as TMD, Sleep Apnea, and Orthodontics. I have been in the dental field for more than 12 years, and I really love and enjoy every part of my job. Helping my patients is my number one priority. I have been here with Dr. Dressman since 2014 and I am extremely fortunate to find such a great group of staff and patients to share my days with.


Registered Dental Hygienist

Michelle Trimbath grew up in Truckee, CA and moved to the Bay Area in 2006. She completed Foothill College’s dental assisting program in 2009 and worked as a registered dental assistant for two years before graduating from Foothill’s dental hygiene program in 2013. She is an active member of the Santa Clara Valley Dental Hygienists’ Association where she volunteers as the membership chair and Foothill College liaison. She is passionate about dentistry and loves her career as a dental hygienist.


Insurance Coordinator

I entered the dental field in 2003 and worked my way to consulting and management. While I've enjoyed every aspect of dentistry, I found my niche behind the scenes doing insurance claim recovery. Here at Dr. Dressman's, I have the opportunity to work on our patient's behalf, collecting from insurance companies while enjoying other aspects of the job. And I get to do this in a fun family environment with friendly and professional coworkers! In my spare time, I enjoy spending long weekends away at the coast with my husband, sharing his love of photography.


Registered Dental Hygienist

I have been in the dental field since 2004 when I started as a dental assistant. I decided to pursue a career in dental hygiene and graduated from Carrington in 2013. I joined Dr. Dressman's staff in June 2017 and I am delighted to part of this special team. My husband Tim and I are both San Jose natives, we have a daughter, Tessa, 2 cats, and 2 dogs. I enjoy running, kickboxing, fishing, and making jewelry.


Scheduling Coordinator

I have been in the Dental field since 1996. During my career, I’ve enjoyed working as a Dental Assistant and Insurance and Scheduling Coordinator. As a San Jose native myself, I am happy to help my fellow neighbors with their dental needs. In 2016, I decided to look for employment closer to home since my daughter was going to be starting Kindergarten here in Willow Glen. I am very happy to say that I enjoy working with such a kindhearted man. He not only treats his staff like family but his patients as well. I look forward to seeing you at the office or in the neighborhood.
