The De Leon Dentistry Doctors

Dr. Patti

Dr. Patti was born and raised in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico. After graduating from dental school she created her private practice and worked for 6 years before moving to the United States and pursuing her DDS license. She opened De Leon Dentistry in 2006. She has 4 decades of dental expertise in all aspects of dentistry but she’s emphasized her curriculum in Family dentistry. She has had the privilege of treating so many young patients and has watched them bloom into amazing adults. A day in her chair is not complete without a piece of life advice and sharing accounts of her family life. When she’s not in the office, she likes to play piano, host & entertain, and spend time with her family. 

Dr. Andrea

Dr. Andrea is as you may have guessed Dr. Patti’s daughter, her “mini-me.” She was born and raised in Orange County, CA. She also attended dental school in Mexico and graduated with Honors in 2016. She focuses on Minimally Invasive, Supra-Gingival and Preventive Dentistry. She says, “The best kind of dentistry is the one where more educating and less drilling happens. My favorite thing about working with my mom is building up the relationships with patients she has already founded.” When she’s not in the office she is adventuring and traveling with her husband. 

Why Minimally Invasive?

Minimally Invasive Dentistry as Dr. Andrea simply puts it, “Leaving the drill behind when possible.” M.I. dentistry uses the latest advances in adhesive dentistry, composites, and ceramics to save tooth structure and place restorations above the gum line. This style of dentistry differs from traditional dentistry because dental crowns are avoided and only damaged tissue is removed, thus preserving your tooth structure. Often dental restorations are placed under the gum line, which can make the tooth and gums unhealthy. With M.I. dentistry, the special techniques avoid touching the gumline.

The Benefits of Minimally Invasive Dentistry:

  • Healthier gums 
  • Tooth preservation
  • Less discomfort because less dentistry
  • Beautiful natural results
