Joanne

Marketing and Business Development

I joined our practice in May of 2008 as front desk and then office manager of our Gainesville Location. My role has since evolved and I am now the Professional Relationship Director (PRD) for the practice. My focus is on the needs of each referring doctor and my goal is to optimize their relationship with NOVA Perio Specialists. I organize continuing education meetings through lectures, lunch & learns, doctors study clubs and hygiene study clubs. I believe that the best relationships are built on accessibility, clear communication and trust!

I grew up in NYC but have been living in Northern Virginia since 1998. In my spare time I enjoy exercise, travel and living “lake life” at our weekend get-away on Lake Anna.

I have been a part of the office since August 2008. As a second-generation Russian who grew up in New Jersey, I am fluent in both Russian and English. I enjoy coming to work and helping our patients receive the care they need and making their office visit a comfortable one for them. Like the rest of our team, I take pride in knowing the quality of care that we provide. Outside of the office, I like horseback riding and spending time with my husband of 25 years and our three beautiful children.

My career in the dental field began in 2008. I worked as a CDA in general dentistry and with a periodontist part time until I graduated dental hygiene school in 2015. I have continued my passion for working with the periodontally involved as a dental hygienist. I really do love your gums as much, if not more, than my own! If I’m not scaling teeth I am spending time with my husband, Allan, and son, Xane. I am an avid fitness junkie and have a love for fast cars, specifically the one my husband built for me. Allan and I in addition to our son also have three rescued doggies: Koko, Wednesday, and Nova.
