Meet the Team
Our practice wouldn’t be what it is without our fantastic team! From check-in to checkout, our smile team will be by your side to ensure you’re always comfortable and have answers to all of your questions. Their #1 goal with every patient is to give them the most relaxing and stress-free dental experience of their life, and you’ll learn to love them starting at your very first appointment. To begin getting to know some of the friendly faces you’ll meet here at Smile More Dentistry, read on below.

She studied at Ponce Paramedical College and is now proud to be working alongside Dr. Tong and Dr. Lacap. Seeing each patient walk out of the office with a great smile and newfound satisfaction is such a rewarding experience for her!
Julissa hails from a caring, funny, and generous family. In her spare time, she enjoys going on long road trips, dancing, traveling, and spending quality time with her loved ones and her dog.
