About Our Team


Our office has a great staff. The team is always looking for ways to make your time in the office more pleasant. Yes, we all know that a dental visit is not the highlight of your day, but isn't it better with a staff that is really looking out for you? And our office cat, "Mustard," is a favorite receptionist to many of our patients!

Francoise Goble, RDA

Frankie, or "Nurse Good heart" as Dr. Wilensky refers to her as.  She's been dental assisting since 2009. She received her RDA license in 2011 with the help of Dr. Wilensky, Dr. Bertheola and the entire staff here at our office. As an RDA, you will often find Frankie assisting the Doctors in the office during your visits.  When she's not assisting the Doctors she's likely placing orders & keeping the back office stocked.

Frankie resides in Fort Bragg with her husband Rylan. In her spare time she enjoys reading, painting, spending time with her family & friends, and raising their siberian husky puppy Kima.

Frankie loves meeting new people and strives to make your dental experience more enjoyable.

Judy Austin, DH

Hi! I'm Judy Austin. I've been a dental hygienist for 22 years. I've been working at Dr. Wilensky's office for six years. I love working in this office because of the excellent and painless dentistry practiced here and because of our friendly staff teamwork and awesome patients. The days I don't work here I enjoy doing some mentoring of young people, learning new things and playing games or watching movies at night.

Wendy Ponts

I've been at this office for almost 11 years and enjoy helping people at the front desk. We have a very supportive group working together to take great care of our patients. I relax by working in my garden, spending time with friends, family and especially my 3 grandkids. I love to cook and am always on the lookout for a new wall to paint.
