Airing December 9th-15th on Wise Health with Suma Nathan and her guest Florentina Galla
Tooth Cleaning and Alternative Medicine
Florentina was born in Bucharest, where she spent her first four-and-a-half years in an orphanage. She was adopted and raised in the middle of a tough communist regime that shaped her tough skin yet challenged her soul and made her wonder who she really was. In 1996 she came to the US with her son to start a new life. She had different, new obstacles: going back to school, learning a new language, working, and raising her son-all at the same time. She is a registered dental hygienist from New Jersey and Romania with a bachelor’s and master’s degree in holistic nutrition from Clayton College of Natural Health. She is recognized by the American Naturopathic Board Association and a certified natural health practitioner (CNHP), and she became a certified health coach at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN) in New York City. She worked in the dental field for twenty years, and for the last six, she has been a clinical instructor at the hygiene clinic of Bergen Community College. Her determination helped her to achieve so many highs personally and professionally. Her love for better health and the enigma of longevity pushed her to become who she is today: a holistic person and a successful therapist and hygienist.
