Originally from the Philippines, John has settled in Dr. Chernoff’s office, bringing an equal blend of talents between the technical and the personal. Dr. C’s approach resonated with him when he joined the practice in 2000. Caring and sensitive, he makes everyone feel immediately at ease. Working side-by-side with Dr. C. is like a choreographed mastery.

Working as Dr. Chernoff’s right hand helper is efficient because I know what he wants. I can anticipate what is next, and he doesn’t have to tell me. This makes the patient experience more relaxed.

What I love most about my job is that it is not stressful. The patients are often stressed, so it is important that I can be calm for them. Dr. Chernoff is always cool, and so the atmosphere is easy for practice.

Keeping up with all the changes in dentistry from year-to-year is the biggest challenge. It is exciting, but a lot to analyze and determine what are the best developments. I must always know the newest solutions to stay ahead.
