Meet the Staff

My name is Valentina and I am one of the hygienists here at Staten Island Smile. My love for the dental field started as a little girl going to my own dental office. The office staff was always so friendly and made me feel extremely comfortable at every visit. I went to Tottenville High School and was given an amazing opportunity to join their dental program. With dental class being my favorite class to attend, my grades reflected that greatly. The teachers saw my passion for the dental field and set me up as a dental assistant immediately. I was a dental assistant 11 years ago, and the rest has been history!

I graduated Tottenville High School and was accepted to New York Universities College of Dentistry. I was taught by very inspiring teachers and received a Bachelors Degree in Dental Hygiene. I absolutely love my job, patients, and co-workers who are now considered family. I wake up every morning excited to conquer another day at the office and make a difference, one smile at a time!
