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.

Dentists 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!

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.

Brittany, Dental Assistant

I have been a Dental Assistant for 6 years. I earned my RDA (Registered Dental Assistant) License while attending Ocean Lakes High School at the Virginia Beach Technical and Career Education Center in 2014. I first started working in Endodontics and I absolutely loved it. I wanted to learn more in the dental field and over time moved to working in General Dentistry. I enjoy helping patients feel comfortable and educating them about the importance of their teeth and overall health. I love being part of the TCCRD team and helping everyone in the team.

When I am not working, I am at home with my 2- year-old son. My son Bradley and I spend a lot of our time cooking in the kitchen together. When we are not in the kitchen, we like to enjoy some other hobbies like swimming, hiking, and traveling.


Jules, Dental Assistant

I love Dentistry & I'm so happy to be a part of the TCCRD team!

As a native of Elizabeth City, NC I have always enjoyed helping people & have found my calling in Dentistry.

When I'm not working, I enjoy family time & any outdoor activity!  I look forward to meeting you when you're in the office

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.
