Dr. DeLeon always loved going to the dentist, even when she was a young child, because she found the overall environment to be very calm and peaceful. After shadowing a dentist while in college and being encouraged to pursue the field as her career path, she made her choice and hasn’t looked back! Being told about the need for minority/female dentists as a means to help bridge the gap between patient populations was a big source of inspiration for her; she also comes from a family with a long line of educators, who enthusiastically supported and encouraged her decision.
Dr. DeLeon’s college career started at Southwestern University. After the completion of her undergraduate degree, she achieved her doctorate at Texas A&M University College of Dentistry; she was also a post-baccalaureate fellow there.
