Norine has been in dentistry since 1965, joining Dr. Menendez’s team at Comprehensive Dental Care in 1991. Along with her exceptional skills as a restorative assistant, Norine’s natural strength is relating to patients by finding out what desires, priorities and goals each has, with regard to their long term dental health.

Norine loves photography, going to art shows and antiquing.  The beach is her favorite place to relax and enjoy nature.  Her “Bucket List” includes seeing all the states in our beautiful country some day.  Her family includes her daughter Vanessa, two stepdaughters and five grandchildren and pets.

Norine says, “Despite all of my years in dentistry, not a day goes by that I don’t learn something new from Dr. Menendez.   It is what motivates me everyday.”
