Valerie has a Bachelor of Science Degree in Dental Hygiene from the University of Southern California School of Dentistry. She has been with the practice for almost 30 years. The most enjoyable aspect of dental hygiene is the long term relationships with patients she has developed over the years and the joy that comes in helping patients achieve excellent oral health and general well-being. She strives to be thorough, yet gentle, and sensitive to the patient’s needs. Valerie has two daughters – Rachel and Megan and now a granddaughter and recent grandson. Away from the office she enjoys her family, golf, walking and gardening.
