Meet Dr. Valerie Barba
Valerie Barba, DDS, FAGD
From the serene, relaxing, and luxurious setting of her office in Manasquan, NJ, Dr. Valerie Barba and her exceptional team have served the local Jersey Shore community for the past 15 years. Gleaning from her experience over the past 35 years in practices in California, New York and New Jersey, she and her team created an unsurpassed patient experience with state-of-the-art technology and care that not only soothes and inspires, but sets the foundation for optimal overall health and wellness.
A southern California native, Dr. Barba earned a Bachelor of Science degree in psychobiology and her Doctorate of Dental Surgery at the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA). She is a member of the Academy of General Dentistry (AGD), the Jersey Shore University Medical Center Continuing Education Study Club, the Gordon Christensen International Study Club, the American Dental Association (ADA), the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD), the American Academy of Clear Aligners (AACA) and the New Jersey Dental Association (NJDA). She is also now honored as a Fellow of the AGD.
Married for 35 years and blessed with four children and two grandchildren, Dr. Barba enjoys family life and prioritizes wellness in mind, body and spirit. The continual journey of learning remains important, and having run marathons in the past, health and fitness do as well. Her music ministry at St. Peter’s Church in Point Pleasant Beach as a Leader of Song and choir member is especially fulfilling. And serving the community on the Board of Directors of the Jersey Shore Chamber of Commerce is exceptionally gratifying. Dr. Barba was awarded the 2016 Business Excellence Award by the Jersey Shore Chamber of Commerce and was acknowledged by the Senate and General Assembly of the State of New Jersey for this accomplishment. .
