My name is Leslie, and I am one of Dr. Richmond’s assistants at [practice_name]. I am relatively new to the dental industry, but I love to learn and put smiles on patients’ faces. I am committed to helping patients maintain their dental health. I believe I have a compassionate and gentle chairside manner that puts patients at ease. I am a Norfolk native who enjoys cooking and having fun in the sun with my husband and two daughters, one a college freshman and the other a fifth-grade elementary student.
My name is Iydl (pronounced like “idle”), and I have been practicing dental hygiene for over 15 years. I am a native Californian but have been in the Hampton Roads area for over 30 years. I graduated from Virginia Western Community College, and during my studies, I was able to start a dental program with the local shelter. I volunteered with the clinic and Mission of Mercy project, which helps those in need who are unable to afford dental care. I am passionate about being a part of your oral health, as well as your whole–body wellness.
I enjoy the outdoors and I love animals, especially my miniature schnauzer named Dude!
