"Each patient I see is an individual with needs that are unique. Patients feel reassured by my solid background and years of experience, but I always keep in mind that even routine procedures are usually new to my patients. So I always take the time to explain everything in a way that my patients can understand."
Leonard De Lucia
"The time I spend with each patient is just as important as the time I spent in dental school, because getting to know you and listening to your concerns tells me a lot about the care you need. I want you to feel as comfortable and relaxed as you can. By removing the stress and fear people often associate with dental visits, I can help you focus on what's most important: your healthy, beautiful smile."
Quality care founded on education
"Education is the foundation for excellence, which is a core principle of mine, and of this practice. Delivering excellent, complete, professional service wouldn't be possible without my educational experience, both past and continuing. Since graduating from dental school in 1988, l've made it a priority to pursue continuing education on a regular basis to keep up-to- date with the latest dentistry. I know it's the key for my being able to provide each and every patient with the kind of dentistry they deserve"

Committed to improving smiles
"Cosmetic dentistry can be so rewarding for me and my patients. It's amazing to see how even subtle changes in a smile can brighten someone's entire face — and even their outlook. And whatever change you're seeking, I always spend time getting to know you and under-standing what you want. Only then can I help you achieve your dream of a more attractive smile."

Giving patients extra reasons to smile
"When I hear our patients tell us they've never been treated better than when they visit our office, l'm so proud. I know what it's like to be treated like a number, and I promised myself that none of my patients would ever feel that way. This is more than a partnership in dental care. This is a relationship we want to last. And that's why our patients keep coming back with their friends and familles."

The power of a solid education
"For me, there is nothing as empowering as learning. I value everything about my education, but especially how it bas prepared me for a career in dentistry. The base of knowledge l've gained in dental school — and ongoing education since I graduated in 1982 — has given me the power of discovery the ability to assess problems and adapt to changes in dental care. In short, education is confidence. Because of it, l'm confident that l'm giving the best care available for my patients."

Quality is my first priority
"I enjoy performing even the most challenging dental procedures, and it's partly because I take such pride in every detail of what I do. Patients may not notice the subtle difference that takes a little extra time, but they almost always notice the wonderful results. It's so rewarding to feel l've made a difference in someone's quality of life. That's why I always go the extra mile for patients."

Personalized care care from a dedicated professional
"The best compliment l've received is that so many of my patients refer their families and friends to me. My patients trust my care, and they know that they're important to me—while they're in the office and after they go home. Quality dental care requires good communication and compassion. Spending time getting to know my patients and understanding their needs and concerns is a top priority."
