Valerie began her love for the field back in high school as she joined a dental assisting program. She worked as a dental assistant for 5 years. She fell in love with the ability to provide dental healthcare for patients, and that’s when she decided to do more. Val later on studied at New York University College of Dentistry and achieved her goal by becoming a dental hygienist.
She is now thrilled to be part of the Waverley Oaks Dental team. Her favorite part of being a hygienist is getting to know her patients and educate each patient about how to better their oral health while also encouraging improved overall health at the same time.
