Meet The Doctors

Dr. Miryam S. Miyamoto, DDS, MS


Santa Clarita has been my home for over 30 years and I love living here and serving this community! I am from Lima, Peru, where I did my dental training at the Cayetano Heredia University. After completing my DDS I moved to the United States to attend the University of Alabama at Birmingham for both my orthodontics residency and Master of Science in Oral Biology. Following my educational years I worked in Cincinnati, Ohio for two years prior to coming to California and eventually settling down in Santa Clarita. My three kids were all born and raised here and one of my sons recently joined the practice! I truly love my job and my patients and I am so grateful to be able to do what I do!

Dr. Neil Tamashiro-Miyamoto, DDS, MS


I am a proud Santa Clarita native and lifelong Southern California kid. I grew up playing soccer and basketball in SCV leagues and club teams prior to going to Hart High School. After Hart I attended the University of Southern California, where I got my B.S. in Human Biology. I then went across town to earn my D.D.S. at the University of California, Los Angeles. Following my four years at UCLA I moved to Ann Arbor, Michigan to complete my orthodontics residency and obtain my Master of Science in Orthodontics from the University of Michigan. I spent three great years in Ann Arbor before moving back home to Santa Clarita to work at this practice with my mom. Being able to work with and learn from my mom is priceless, and I’m excited to team up with her to be the best orthodontists we can be for our patients!

Hi I’m Summer and I’m an RDA. I’ve been working at Cinema Ortho for over 5 years and I absolutely love what I do! When I’m not working you can find me either at the gym or hanging out with animals in nature.

Hi I’m Yarixa but you can call me Yari. I am a DA and have been in the dental field since 2007.
