Our Staff

Nyleen Velunza
Practice Manager

Nyleen developed her passion for pediatric dentistry when she began working at a non-profit organization early on in her career. During this time, Nyleen worked with Dr. Hester and assisted him to provide treatment for the underserved. For the past 12 years, she has worked directly with patients to provide education and assist in treating the children of our community. Nyleen has also managed large dental practices where both General and Pediatric dentists provided treatment to those in need.

In her downtime, she enjoys spending time with her nieces and nephews. However, when she is not doing that, she is out traveling and exploring the world!

Her main goal at Hester Pediatric Dentistry is to provide a warm and comforting experience for our patients and families, and to ensure that every child leaves our practice with a huge smile!
