She is an expert dental billing specialist who enjoys a good fight with the dental insurance companies by advocating for her patients to get their claims paid.
Dentistry has always been Venetta's passion and as such her greatest satisfaction is the time that she spends educating her patients on the importance of a healthy mouth and how that contributes to their overall health. She considers the patients and staff at Everlasting Smiles an extension of her immediate family, and it gives her great joy to be among them every day.
When Venetta isn't in the office, she's at home doing what she loves most: preparing tasty meals for her family and working out. Now that her children are all grown up, she also likes to take them with her on vacation to her birth country Jamaica where they get to immerse in the culture of reggae music, sampling the tasty, exquisite cuisine, tour the lush green island and learning more about mom’s roots.
