Meet Our Danbury Dental Team
Dr. Blake Winokur
Hey Everyone! My name is Jess. I have been working in the dental industry for the past 5 years as a Front Office Coordinator. Happiness starts with a smile, which is why I love what I do. It’s great to be part of an art that can bring a smile to people’s faces and change their life.
I have been a part of the Rolling Hills Dentistry team for the past year now and I love working alongside people who work hard, truly care about the patients and like to have fun while doing it all.
I obtained my Bachelor's degree in Dental Hygiene from the University of New Haven after being a dental assistant previously. I believe that prevention is key to a healthy life and I am passionate about inspiring my patients with that.
I love working with patients of all ages to reach their optimal health. I enjoy providing dental health awareness to the community. I recently provided dental care in Arizona to the Navajo Nation reservation. I also love going to elementary schools to provide a fun, educational dental experience. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my husband and two daughters. I also love to bake and travel.
I started working with Dr. Boyce in 1998 and transitioned with her to Rolling Hills Dentistry in April of 2018. I am ICE (Infection Control), RHS (Radiation Health and Safety), and CPR certified. I am skilled in both front office administration and direct patient care. When I am not working I enjoy teaching cardio dance class, working on my water garden and spending time with my two nieces.
I started working in the dental field while I was getting my bachelor's degree. After graduation, I didn’t see the need to change careers because I loved what I was doing. I have been in the same practice for a few years now and I see it as my second family. I love to interact with people and make them feel comfortable and I know they appreciate my compassion and competence. I’m also fluent in Portuguese and Spanish which sometimes is helpful to our patients.
I feel very fortunate to work with Rolling Hills Dentistry because we are all about the well-being of our patients. When I’m not at work I love to spend time with my family, I enjoy the beach, hiking, and visiting new places.
A lifelong resident of Fairfield County, CT. I enjoy what the area has to offer for a top quality experience of life. I have worked in the dental field for over 35 years and enjoy not only the all around aspects of the dental industry, but also the opportunity to interact with people and forge long lasting relationships.
As a recently joined member of the Rolling Hills Dental team, it is a joy to come to the office knowing that the day will be filled with a fun atmosphere and a professional attitude in treating each and every patient. Outside of work I enjoy spending time with family, visiting wine vineyards, trying new restaurants and attending the occasional country music concert.
