After working in the Department of Oral Medicine at the University of California San Francisco (UCSF) for two years, she went on the earn her Doctorate in Dental Surgery at UCSF in 2004. Following her dental training, Dr. de Luna completed a residency in advanced general dentistry at the University of the Pacific in San Francisco for one year, where she treated medically compromised and disabled patients. After her extensive education, she worked in a variety of settings, including private practices and for four years in community clinics treating underserved populations, before opening her own practice. Getting to know and developing long term relationships with her patients drew Dr. de Luna to general dentistry, and what motivates her everyday.
Dr. de Luna truly enjoys living and working in San Francisco, the city she loves. Away from the office, she enjoys time with her husband, and finding balance between her arts and crafts and active activities. Hiking, yoga, traveling, sewing and knitting are among her favorite activities, but she is always looking for new things to explore and learn. A lifelong student, she is always taking a new class to broaden her mind or learn a new skill. She has incorporated her love of traveling and helping others by providing dental care in some less fortunate parts of the world. She has volunteered in remote areas of Honduras, Peru and Cambodia.
