Giovanna Barajas is a proud native New Yorker, who was raised in Queens and now resides in Brooklyn. She attended high school in Wall Street where she gained knowledge about finance and accounting but no spark was there that made her feel enthused. Fast forward a few years, her curiosity and thrill for dental care drove her into a new field: Dental Hygiene.
In 2014, Giovanna earned her Associate of Applied Science degree in Dental Hygiene at the New York City College of Technology in Downtown Brooklyn. She has been a Registered Dental Hygienist for seven years now and is still delighted to be able to help improve and maintain her patients smiles.
Throughout her many years of experience, she has honed her skills to communicate and show patience, understanding, and empathy.
Giovanna believes oral care should not be neglected as it is a significant piece to an individual’s overall health. She strives to deliver inspiration and motivation to all of her patients, no matter their age. Her mantra to dental hygiene at Smile Arts of NY is team work – both the patient and dental professional should do their part to create a sustainable healthy smile.
Being a dental hygienist and delivering quality preventive care to her patients brings Giovanna such a priceless rewarding feeling, and her patients can attest to that.
During her time off, she is passionate about real estate, personal training and fitness, is always eager to learn through podcasts and books, likes to travel, and loves spending time with her family, her partner, and their chocolate cockapoo named Dunder.
