Dr. Jernell Escobar Holiday Toothbrush Donation
The Gift That Keeps on Giving You a Beautiful Smile!

Dr. Jernell Escobar and her team were delighted to donate toothbrushes and toothpaste as stocking stuffers for 600 Christmas stockings for families who signed up for toys for their children for this year’s YMCA Toy Drive. Evening Rotary of Gilroy supplied the stockings and organizers of the event said the toothbrushes and toothpaste were a welcome addition to the candy and books inside the stockings. The Gilroy Fire Department, Gilroy Chamber of Commerce, St. Joseph’s Family Center, Evening Rotary, Neon Exchange, YMCA, numerous businesses, and, of course, Dr. Escobar, participated in this hoped-to-be yearly event.

Gilroy Dentist Dr. Jernell Escobar Awards $750 Student Scholarships to Devonna Rubalcava & Maliyah Escudero of Hollister

Dr. Jernell Escobar DDS has awarded student scholarships of $750 each to Devonna Rubalcava and Maliyah Escudero of Hollister.
Both students will be attending college in the fall, Rubalcava at Monterey Peninsula College and Escudero at Sacramento State University.
This is the second year that Escobar has awarded the scholarship. The mothers of both recipients also work in Escobar’s Gilroy dental office.
Rubalcava, a June graduate of San Benito High School, says the scholarship comes at an opportune time for her.
“I was surprised, but appreciative,” she says about hearing the good news. “This will allow me to get books and supplies for school. I’m just excited to get one.”
After two years at MPC, Rubalcava hopes to attend a UC university, preferably CSU Monterey Bay, to study criminal justice, primarily, she says, because “I wanted to help others.”
Escudero, also a 2022 San Benito High School graduate, will be attending Sacramento State this fall, also majoring in criminal justice.
Born in Clear Lake, Escudero is also a resident of Hollister, and recently returned from freshman orientation at Sac State. She also says the scholarship will help her purchase books and other school supplies.

Gilroy Dentist Dr. Jernell Escobar Awards First $1,000 Student Scholarship to Angelica Lara of Gilroy!

Dr. Jernell Escobar DDS has awarded her first student scholarship of $1,000 to Angelica Lara of Gilroy.

Lara was given the scholarship in a ceremony at Dr. Escobar’s Gilroy office. Her scholarship was awarded to her in part on the strength of her short essay, “Sundays: from Dread to Diligence.”

The essay describes her experiences on Sundays riding with her sister as her handyman father drove to a job site at 5 in the morning, followed later by watching her mom working in a hot kitchen in a restaurant. Both of her parents would encourage her to study hard and get a good job unlike theirs.

“Estuda, mija, pa’ que no tengas que tener un trabajo de estos,” her father would tell her, “Study, my love, so you don’t have a job like mine.” Her mother would say something similar to her as she wiped the sweat off her borw.

So Lara did just that, studied hard and pursued a post-secondary education, although she sometimes questioned her choices.

“However, those bittersweet memories of driving in my Dad’s old truck only made me try harder for my dreams,” she writes. “ ‘My parents worked hard to get where they are in life, so I’m going to do the same,’ I always told myself, and I’d like to think I’ve done the best I could. I maintained a good GPA all through high school, I took AP (Advanced Placement) classes, I participated in extra-curricular activities, I was a tutor, I received awards for my academic achievement, and I tried my best to leave my teachers with a good impression of who I am as a student. Yet, all these things would not matter if I hadn’t have had those Sunday trips.”

Those days of driving in her father’s truck and to her mother’s work on Sundays only to watch her parents struggle for the sake of her future, “only made me work more diligently for my education. I owe my present accomplishments to my parent’s past triumphs.”

Voted "BEST DENTIST" for the third year in a row!
