Nora V.

Office Manager

Nora was born and raised in the Philippines and has over 10 years of experience in working with the elderly. She discovered her passion for helping people when she held a second job as a caregiver during her time as a single parent of three kids (Ronna, Sam and Josh, now all adults). She saw the need for high quality dental care for the homebound aging population, especially for those who cannot access traditional dental care.

She is determined and excited every morning to assist a new or existing patient to make them confident about their smile. Jennifer enjoys spending time with her family, taking walks, exercising and doing self-care in her spare time. She also adores speaking about what new things she learned about her oral health.
