Ever since she was a young child, Dr. DeLeon really enjoyed going the dentist’s office. She found the environment to be very peaceful and calm! While in college, she ended up shadowing a dentist who told her about the strong need for minority/female dentists in the field as a way to help bridge the gap between patient populations. This inspired her to pursue this career, and the rest is history. Additionally, she comes from a long line of educators in her family, who also enthusiastically encouraged and supported her chosen job path.
After completing her undergraduate degree at Southwestern University, Dr. DeLeon pursued her doctorate at Texas A&M University College of Dentistry, where she was also a post-baccalaureate fellow. She is certified in Level 1 Minimal Sedation and Invisalign. She regularly attends continuing education courses to stay current with the latest developments in the field and further expand her clinical knowledge.
