Meet the Doctors
Dr. Michelle de la Vega is a second generation dentist. She understood the importance of dentistry at an early age from her father. She deeply appreciates the positive changes in the science of dentistry through the years with the advancement of technology. When she started practicing dentistry, one of her goals was to promote healthy teeth and gums to her patients as part of their daily over all wellness routine. Healthy teeth and gums is part of a sound body and mind. Another goal was to create beautiful, confident smiles that can last a lifetime! Through the years, she has designed numerous smile makeovers that made her patients more confident about their smiles. She has a keen attention to detail and patience in helping her patients realize the gorgeous straighter, brighter smile of their dreams! After all, "Smiles create a powerful first impression and leave a lasting memory."
Growing up, Dr. de la Vega enjoys music, art, fashion and sports. She plays the piano, paints, draws and is active in volleyball, swimming, basketball and soccer. As a young adult, she became part of the Varsity Rowing Team of her University. Being connected to her spirituality, she found time to volunteer in her church choir and assisted in the City of San Jose's programs such as the Anti-tobacco program, High School mentorship program and Christmas Toy Drive for the low income family. She served as board for the San Jose Month of the Young Child during her term as President of the Fil-Am Chamber of Commerce (junior division), where she promoted early dental care to the community. Because of her dedication to serve the community, she was given a Service Excellence Award by then California State Senator Liz Figueroa of the 10th District. Nowadays, Dr. de la Vega spends most of her free time with family and friends. She finds joy spending time with her two hilarious and active young children. A busy working mom of two, she still catches a glimpse of her old passions once in a while and tries to share it with her young ones. She is a fan of the local Warriors Basketball team.
