A Tradition Of Fine Dentistry

Contact Us

Financial Coordinator

I am a Western Massachusetts native and have a background of 20 years working in the medical field.  Since I enjoy learning new things, I like being part of VFCD so I can learn the different aspects of dentistry.  In my free time, I just love spending time with my family.   Otherwise, I simply enjoy being outside, especially during the warm months when I can garden.  Traveling also tugs at me--any time of year!

Marketing Coordinator

I am, first and foremost, a patient here at VFCD and know first-hand how friendly the team is, and more importantly, how exceptional they are at their jobs.  I joined this incredible team knowing what great people I would get to see every day.  When I'm not in the office, I enjoy spending time with my family--three teenagers keep me very busy!  When I can, I enjoy attending broadway musicals, going to the movies and just being outdoors.

Human Resources

Working at VFCD gives me an opportunity to meet such great people, not the least of whom are the incredible staff. These fun, amazing people make the office a welcome and friendly environment. They enjoy the long-term patients and often their family members who have been here for generations—making everyone feel like old (or new) friends. When not engaged at the office, I enjoy running, tennis, coaching (tennis and basketball), baking and reading. As a mother of four, I am blessed to have found such a wonderful environment to balance my life

Dental Receptionist

I am the Practice Manager at Vallera Family & Cosmetic Dentistry. I have been in this profession for twenty years. When I am not working, I enjoy hiking, biking and other outdoor actives. At VFCD I enjoy working with the tight-knit staff.

Dental Hygienist

Giana is a Western Massachusetts native who first studied Psychology and Spanish at Palm Beach State College in Florida before changing careers and graduating as a dental hygienist from Tunxis College in Farmington, Connecticut.  Giana holds a license in both Massachusetts and Connecticut.  When she's not working, her passion is food, and she loves to add spice to all of her meals--crushed red pepper is an essential!  She is also a mother of two handsome boys, a wife, and a fitness coach.

Dental Hygienist

Dentistry and dental hygiene are my passion.  I have had the great fortune to utilize my master's and bachelor's degrees in dental hygiene education to practice dental hygiene for the past 15 years in the U.S. and abroad.  I have spent my time and experience sharing my passion through dental hygiene instruction, lecture, research and publication.  I pride myself on sharing my knowledge of dental disease and prevention with anyone who will listen.  When I am not helping patients achieve oral health, I enjoy spending time with my two children and husband.  We love to hike, bike, travel and visit museums.  I am an avid reader and can't get enough of a good spin class.  My goal each and every day is to stay humble, and laugh often.  I look forward to sharing all I have with the fantastic patients and working with the unique group of talented staff at VFCD.

Dental Hygienist

I am a Registered Dental Hygienist (RDH) here at VFCD.  I received my B.S. in Kinesiology from UMass Amherst in 2011 and my A.S. in Dental Hygiene from Mount Wachusett CC in 2016.  In addition to treating our wonderful patients here, also teach group fitness classes on the weekend.  I like to spend my free time hiking, making soap, and watching movies and television shows.  I love being a part of the team here because of how the doctors and staff here are able to make dentistry fun for our patients.  VFCD is really a great place to be!

Dental Assistant

I am one of the Dental Assistants at VFCD. I attended Porter and Chester Institute and have been in this profession for fourteen years. My favorite part of working for VFCD is the people that I work with. In my free time, I enjoy reading, exercising, bowling, movies and spending time with my family.
