It’s hard to believe that Val joined us Twenty-Seven years ago! Val is still as warm and enthusiastic as ever, though. Making your visit to our office as pleasant as possible is still her first priority, and no matter what your question, Val will find the answer for you. Val was trained in Dental Assisting at Apollo College (now know as Carrington College) and assisted Dr. Scott for twelve years before moving on to the front office. She selected this practice because she really wanted to work for a dentist she believed in and to be part of a great team that shared her pride and commitment to providing a high quality of care. Val grew up in McKeesport, Pennsylvania and has lived in our town since 1982. She chose to relocate to Mesa because her family vacationed here summers throughout her childhood. Now Val has a grown son, named Dante` and three grandchildren. Outside of the office, Val loves to spend time with her family and going to dinner and movies with friends. When Val retires, she’d like to return to her hometown and get reacquainted with small-town living. Thankfully, for us, we can enjoy her warmth and professionalism until then!
