Inga

Office Manager, RDA

It is my duty to oversee the office, keep it running smoothly, and complete all requests so that Dr. Barba can provide state-of-the-art dentistry to our patients. This includes heading-up special projects, training new staff, continued training of existing staff, and financial coordination. My favorite part of my job is helping our patients achieve optimal dental health, whether it is by holding their hand during a procedure, making their treatment affordable for them, or just being an ear to listen to them. I have been married to my wonderful husband for 18 years, and we have three beautiful children. I enjoy exercising, being a teacher’s helper for CCD, and spending time with my family.

Front Desk Reception

I first worked with Dr. Barba from 2003 to 2005 at a previous office, and most recently joined her team in 2011. I am the first to welcome patients into our office with a warm and friendly smile, creating a safe and comforting environment where they can feel at ease. Dr. Barba is an honest, genuine, and exceptionally professional practitioner. I know first-hand; I have been a very happy and satisfied patient for over ten years! I am a very happy wife and mother, and my free time is dedicated to my family.

Registered Dental Assistant

I have been a dental assistant for 26 years and was pleased to join Dr. Barba’s team in 2012. It’s very rewarding to get to know so many people on a personal level while helping them to achieve the smile they desire and deserve. Dr. Barba has a great passion for what she does. She is constantly furthering our education to keep us up-to-date on the latest in dentistry, and is very compassionate towards her patients. When I’m not in the office, I enjoy spending time with my two teenage boys. They keep me on my toes!

Jessica

Dental Assistant

As unusual as it may seem, I have always enjoyed going to the dentist. Who can blame me, you see I have been a patient of Dr. Valerie Barba for over 8 years! Her wonderful care, knowledge and compassion has inspired me to pursue a career in Dentistry. I have an X-ray license, currently on track on achieving my ultimate goal of a RDA. As one of the newest "TEAM BARBA" members, it is my intention to provide every patient with utmost care & dental health education. I look up to every one of our dental team, and aspire to be as amazing in this field as they are. When I’m not in the office, I enjoy cooking, practicing yoga & running with my "fur baby" Sofie.

It is my job to keep my patients healthy by being their periodontal specialist. I do this by evaluating, treating, and maintaining patients throughout their treatment along their journey to optimal dental health. Dr. Barba enables me to be the best hygienist I can be. She allows me to work in an environment that is state-of-the-art and use all the latest technology to treat my patients as an equal clinical partner in her office. I am happily married with two children. My family and friends are very important to me.  My personal passion is staying healthy by eating well and exercising.
