Meet Dr. Saverio DeLuca

I feel blessed to have been able to serve the Tri-Valley community for so many years. Each day I have had the privilege of meeting so many awesome members of our community, from fire fighters, military veterans, police officers, hard-working moms and dads, grandparents, teens, and young professionals just starting out. I enjoy helping folks not only maintain their dental health but maintain their overall health and quality of life with healthy gums and teeth and a great grin. 

I also enjoy letting patients know the possibilities that are out there in aesthetic treatment; some of my most touching moments in this profession have been when our office has been able to provide a visual improvement that the patient had always dreamed of. Many times, patients see themselves for the first time and tears come to their eyes. I truly enjoy the artistry of dentistry and helping people to achieve the smile on the outside that they feel on the inside.

Education and Continuing Education

The dental profession runs in my family. My father used to be in the dental laboratory business, and I used to be a delivery driver and work in the lab “back in the day.” I have known that I wanted to be a dentist since the second grade and was always drawn to making model airplanes and working with my hands. To fulfill my desire to become a dentist, I first attended the University of the Pacific, where I earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Biology. I continued on to the University of the Pacific Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry, where I received my Doctorate of Dental Surgery.

After dental school, I was proud to serve my country as a dental officer in the United States Navy, after which I served for many years as a US Navy Reservist.

To stay current in the profession and interact with other dentists and specialists in the profession, I regularly continue my education through numerous study groups and professional organizations, one of which is the Spear Study Club. The Spear model emphasizes integrating evidence-based clinical instruction and online learning to raise the standard of patient care.

Providing evidence-based, clinically proven care is a cornerstone of my practice. There are many products out there but I want to be aware of which products and techniques really are effective… not which ones are new and popular. I consult with trusted advisors in the profession to see which techniques and products will stand the test of time.

Outside the Office

A California native, I was born in San Francisco and raised in the East Bay, where I have lived since 1994. I am married with three sons and love to attend my kids’ sporting or musical events. Time with family and friends is always high on my list of activities, as is music—I sing in a choir and love to play the guitar. I am also fluent in Italian.

I have long been a volunteer in the community, from coaching soccer teams to participating in classroom dental education presentations. I also make donations to many local charities, schools, and non-profit organizations to share my good fortune with the community and those around me.

Meet Dr. Nikita Chaudhri:

As my patient, you can expect that I will take the time to provide thorough, personalized care with your overall health and well-being in mind. I take pride in what I do, and would be honored to work with you!

I enjoy treating patients of all ages with a conservative and comprehensive approach using modern technology and techniques. My passion lies in educating my patients on preventive care to encourage improved oral health for life. I also love the artistic aspect of dentistry, which I use to help my patients achieve their best possible smile.

Growing up with my father as a dentist, I was drawn to the profession at an early age. I chose dentistry because it is a field that allows me to combine art and science to hand craft beautiful healthy smiles that can help others live life to their full potential.

Education and Continuing Education:

After earning my Bachelor of Science degree in Biology, with a minor in English, from Saint Mary’s College of California, I went on to receive my Doctorate of Dental Surgery from the University of Pacific Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry. I constantly further my learning through continuing education courses and keep up to date with evidence based dentistry. I am a proud member of the American and California Dental Associations, as well as the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry.
