Dr. Valerie LaScala


Dr. Valerie LaScala was born and raised in Virginia where she studied Nutrition at Virginia Tech. After receiving a scholarship to attend dental school, she continued her education at Boston University where she received her degree as a Doctor of Dental Medicine (D.M.D).  In 2018 she received the Gentle Dental Award for Clinical Excellence and Chairside Manner. Following dental school, she practiced as a private practice general dentist in Northern Virginia. Determined to learn more about how to perfect smiles, she completed her Master’s degree and received her certificate in Orthodontics at the University of Colorado where she graduated with the highest honors and was the recipient of the Rocky Mountain Orthodontic Scholarship Award for Overall Excellence. 


Dr. LaScala’s mission is to create health and happiness through a confident smile. This is achieved through obtaining facial harmony, smile esthetics as well as a functional and comfortable bite.  Dr. LaScala recognizes that each person is unique; therefore, she has been trained in a wide range of treatment modalities including conventional braces, self-ligation, temporary anchorage devices, in-directing bonding, interceptive treatment as well as Invisalign. Dr. LaScala is committed to implementing state-of-the-art practices that customize patient care to ensure predictable and efficient treatment for children, teenagers, and adults. 


During her free time, Dr. LaScala enjoys being active by playing tennis or going on hikes as well as gaining experience in her more recent passion, scuba diving. On weekends, you will find Dr. LaScala exploring the beautiful beaches of North Carlina or trying all the highly recommended restaurants in the area.
