Palm Harbor, FL |
I Have never met a more personable and knowledgeable dentist. Dr DeLuca can figure out a solution to every dental problem you have and is conservative in her approach. She listens to you. She is very well trained and experienced and her assistants are excellent as well! I highly recommended Dr DeLuca!
