Norma Del Toro
Norma has been practicing dental hygiene since 2014. She makes it her goal to create a relaxing and comfortable atmosphere while you are in the dental chair. She maintains open communication if you have any concerns during the appointment. As her patient, you can expect a gentle yet thorough cleaning. Together, you can both work as a team to reach your optimal oral health.
Norma grew up and lived in Novato until she was 12 years old. She married in 2014 and moved back to Novato. In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her daughter and husband. She also enjoys hiking, bicycling, and spending time with other family members and friends.

She worked for several years in San Francisco before taking a long break from the profession. She had decided to reactivate her license by taking several continuing education courses. It didn’t take long for her to be back in the dental hygiene seat. Her skills as a dental hygienist are reflected by her detail oriented personality and gentle caring hands.
