Meet the Team

We recognize that all of our young patients are unique and deserve to receive dental care that reflects their individual needs. Our experienced and talented dental team is committed to working with you and your child to create a comfortable, stress-free, and rewarding dental experience every time you visit our practice. We are pleased to welcome you and your family, and we look forward to being your child's dental home.

Jillian Dickason

Office Manager

Jill has dedicated herself to the dental field for over a decade. She prides herself in educating our community about insurance while still being able to put the patient’s needs first. Jill is so happy to find her dental home here at Discovery Children’s, she loves Dr. Sheikh’s goofy personality, bad jokes and commitment to patient care. Outside of Discovery Children’s Jill volunteers as an Adoption Coordinator for Pitbull Rescue of San Diego, you may spot her around town wrangling stray dogs or hanging out at the Carlsbad Shelter. In her spare time she loves taking her 2 teenage boys to concerts, the beach or simply watching Netflix on the couch with their 2 dogs and some extra buttery popcorn.

Paris Sims

Patient Care Coordinator

Paris is the face of our office and will most likely be the first person to welcome you to Discovery Children’s. She comes to us with over 5 years of front office experience and we are so lucky to have her on our team. She chose to continue her career with Discovery Children’s because she loves the environment our office creates for our patients and staff. She also enjoys being involved with the community and Discovery Children’s allows her to forge those ties. When she is not taking care of our patients here she is working on her Master’s in Public Health, hanging with her adorable pup Max, taking day trips to Lake Arrowhead with her grandparents and running the local park or taking in the ocean views that Carlsbad has to offer.

Brittany Murray

Lead RDA

Brittany has been an RDA for over 5 years! She loves working at Discovery Children’s because she gets to experience all the fun Dr. Sheikh’s team has to offer and she really enjoys all the unique personalities that each and every one of our patients possess. Brittany has an amazing husband and is a proud USMC wife. When they’re not out and about finding spontaneous family activities to do with their 3 girls, Brittany likes to relax and get lost in her newest book.

Shaina Whetstone


Shaina is a natural with kids, how could you not be when you have 13 nieces and nephews! Shaina started her RDA journey after her Air Force career, where she learned many important life skills and even how to juggle. She just might show off that talent if you ask nicely. Shaina loves working at Discovery Children’s because she gets to crack up talking to the kids and listening to all their great stories. When she isn’t charming your kids at Discovery she spends her time quilting, designing clothing patterns for kids and chillin' with her teeny tiny Chihuahua Penny.

Isabel Garcia-Mendez


Isabel received her RDA license 3 years ago and has been non-stop ever since! She transitioned to pediatric dentistry when we welcomed her to our family at Discovery Children’s and to say she has found her niche is an understatement. She loves working with kids and being able to educate them about the importance of brushing and flossing. Her goal is to make every patient feel comfortable and safe. Isabel and her husband enjoy spending family time outdoors with their beautiful daughter. You may catch her on a local hiking trail or soaking up the sun at any of our beautiful beaches.
