He completed his residency in endodontics at the University of Pennsylvania.

Claudia Gibson
Dental Hygienist

I am very passionate when it comes to educating my patients on improving their oral health. It is very exciting when I see a patient’s health improve because of what they learned from our visit. Dental hygiene is all about health and wellness of the mouth, and of the entire body as well. I am proud to provide such an important service to those in my community. I am a home body, so I love spending time with my two daughters and our dog, Coby. I volunteer my cooking skills for the middle and high school track meets and stay active with spinning classes.


Veronica Parra
Dental Hygienist

I am one of our dental hygienists here at our amazing dental care group facility. I am always friendly, optimistic, and dedicated to making sure you have a comfortable, stress-free dental visit. I love the fact that I change people’s lives by promoting good health and self confidence, and creating bright smiles that last a lifetime. I am a happy mother of one daughter and the wife of a loving husband. We also have a Maltese named Richie. I love watching movies, am a voracious reader, and I dance every chance I get.


Jessica Machado
Office Manager

I am very passionate about what I do and consider myself extremely fortunate to be in a position where I am able to help people everyday. I take pride in my work and in my relationships with our patients. I am lucky to be surrounded by a staff of professionals that not only care for our patients well being, but also about educating them along the way.

Every day is full of new challenges that I openly embrace, as I am always looking to gain knowledge or encounter something new. When I am not at work, I enjoy spending time with my amazing (and very big) family and close friends. They are my biggest blessing and have given me the morals and foundation that make me proud of who I am today.

My happy place is by the ocean and I try to spend as much time on or by the water as possible. I love music, cooking, traveling, a good read and my biggest fan is my yorkie, Tinkerbelle.
