Leo – Dental Hygienist
Our dental hygienist, Leo Ismael, grew up in Charlottesville, Virginia, where he initially started his dental career path. It was his senior year of high school that he realized the dental field was his calling after taking a dental assistant course at CATEC. He then took two years of prerequisites at PVCC before transferring to the VCU School of Dentistry. Leo graduated in 2017 with a bachelor’s degree in dental hygiene. He has worked for John J. Andre, DDS & Associates for over two years. You will run into him at both our Glen Allen and Louisa locations. Leo likes to spend time with family and friends and enjoys traveling when he’s not at work. He’s always up for suggestions for his next trip. Do you have any?
