Jonelle Romero, DMD
Jonelle Romero, DMD - Dentist
Dr. Jonelle Romero grew up in Brooklyn, New York with her father, an artist, and older sister. Her interest in dentistry began when her wisdom teeth came in. She wanted to know more about why they came in, why they are so often removed, and how to keep them!
She decided to enter children's dentistry since there is never a dull moment working with kids. Always energetic and full of life, Dr. Romero wanted to ensure the children she treated would always have a great smile to show off to the world.
She received her undergraduate degree in Public Health from East Carolina University, before going on to earn her Doctor of Dental Medicine from the ECU School of Dental Medicine. She is a proud member of the NC Dental Society as well as the American Dental Association.
Her best tip for parents for helping children maintain a healthy smile - be a role model! Brush and floss with your kids and try to make it fun by creating games or playing music.
Fun Fact: Dr. Romero has a dog trapped in a cat's body - he loves growling at the door!
