Valerie grew up in Queens, New York and received her technical degree in Dental Assisting in 1978 from Mandal Dental School. She came to our practice in 2006 with 15 years’ experience in dental assisting and another 15+ years in dental practice management. After her two children were grown, Val moved to Sunset Beach in 2004 to be near her parents.
Valerie efficiently and professionally manages our Front Office operations with precision, grace and style. She greets all of our patients by name and is genuinely concerned with their well-being. Valerie works together with Louise at the Front Desk to ensure that every new and existing patient is treated as family and receives caring, personal attention. Being prepared and on-time is important to our practice.
We do not like to keep patients waiting. With Valerie’s Front Desk experience and close coordination with Dr. Rupp, the dental assistants and hygienists, our patients rarely wait to be seen.
Val is the proud grandmother of a beautiful granddaughter. She spends her relaxation time in her garden and creating a peaceful backyard setting for her home.
