Perla Jacobo

Perla graduated from Rock Valley college as a registered dental hygienist. She is a member of the American Dental Hygiene Association. Continuing her education is very important to Perla and it will allow her to continue providing a positive dental experience as well as high quality care for her patients.
“It is so great when patients come back to see me and they want to learn more and do more to care for their oral health and overall health. Boosting someone’s confidence by giving them back their smile is priceless!”
I am passionate about helping others and promoting oral health. I treat my patients how I want to be treated. I always try my best to make them feel comfortable and confident with the care they are receiving.
Perla grew up in Dekalb, IL where she lives with her husband.
When she is not working, Perla likes to read, do yoga, and she enjoys outdoor activities such as running, bike riding, and hiking.  She started volunteering at the Northern Illinois food bank at the beginning of this year. She also plans to do mission work in the near future.
Perla advises her patients to floss daily and brush for 2 minutes twice a day; it is very important not only for your mouth but for your overall health.
“As an oral healthcare provider, I firmly believe that everyone deserves high quality care and I am grateful to work for an organization that strives for the same. I enjoy educating and assisting patients in achieving optimal oral health.”
