Dentist in Chesapeake
I didn't realize the problems I had with my teeth. Until I came to see Dr. Brown. I had been making a subconscious effort for many years to hide my smile. The treatment I received totally changed my appearance. I get compliments all the time. I definitely feel that this has been a benefit to me, personally and professionally.
Meet The Team
Dentist in Chesapeake
Teresa, Patient Coordinator
As the Patient Coordinator, I work "behind the scenes", both researching and helping you maximize your dental insurance benefits. I am fortunate to be a part of a wonderful team that works hard to make sure your experience is a great one!
I have been working in the Dental Field for almost 10 years starting my career in Endodontics. I enjoy meeting our patients and getting to know each of you. It is important to me that our patients leave our office with the best care possible.
I am a "local", born and raised in Norfolk. I still live in Norfolk with my 2 amazing teenage boys that are my world! Outside of the office, you will probably find me on the baseball field!
Hannah, New Patient Coordinator/Treatment Coordinator
My name is Hannah and I believe I have one of the best jobs in the world! I was born and raised in a small town called Shelby, North Carolina (home of the BEST barbeque and sweet tea!)
All my life I knew I would live at the beach one day. At age 18 I moved to the East Coast to attend East Carolina University, where I spent a year and a half on my prerequisites before meeting the love of my life and relocating to Virginia Beach together. Once established in the Hampton Roads area, I graduated with a certificate in dental assisting and started my career in dentistry. Since then, I have fallen in love with Dentistry, the TCCRD team, and all our patients! They say, “When you do what you love, you will never work a day in your life.” I truly enjoy being a part of our patient’s dental transformations. I take so much pride in playing a role in something as life changing as a smile makeover and giving someone the newfound confidence that comes with having a healthy, attractive smile.
In my free time I enjoy continuing my education in dentistry, going to concerts with my boyfriend, relaxing on the beach, and lifestyle photography.
Lani, CDA-Certified Dental Assistant
I love my job! As an assistant I enjoy providing patients answers about their dental health and making them feel at ease. It makes me happy when patients feel better about themselves. I help Dr. Brown and our team make sure your visits are pleasant and run smoothly. In my almost 20 years in dentistry, I have finally found a home & a top-notch professional team.
I am a native of the Philippines and I have been in Hampton Roads for more than 23 years. Outside of work, I enjoy ballroom dancing, which I am actively involved in. Who knows you might see me on “Dancing with the Stars” one day! My other hobbies include sewing, crafting, knitting, shopping of course, and spending time with my family.
Chelsea, Registered Dental Hygienist
I am a Virginia Beach native & graduated from Kellam High School.
My career in Dentistry started as a Dental assistant several years ago, when I fell in love with caring for patients!
After graduating from Virginia Commonwealth University with a Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene, I returned to Virginia Beach to start my career in Dentistry.
I love being a dental hygienist because it gives me the opportunity to interact with many different people and develop relationships with my patients. It makes me happy when patients get healthier and feel more confident about their smile!
When I am not working, I enjoy spending time at the beach, trying new restaurants, or staying at home with my fiancé, two cats, and puppy.
