Dr. DeAngelis is a Californian by birth and Italian in heritage. She grew up in Northern Virginia and earned her Bachelor’s degree in Biology from Virginia Tech in Blacksburg. She will always be a Hokie at heart, but has no problem cheering on UVA as well (as long as they aren’t playing VT).
After college, Dr. D returned to Northern Virginia and worked for a year as a dental assistant, which inspired her to pursue a career in dentistry. She earned her Doctor of Dental Surgery Degree at Virginia Commonwealth University, and subsequently completed a General Practice Residency at the Mountain Area Health Education Center in Asheville, North Carolina.
The mountains of Asheville hooked Dr. DeAngelis, but she was eager to return home to Virginia and found a perfect fit in the Shenandoah Valley. She has enjoyed providing comprehensive, compassionate care to patients in the Charlottesville area for several years now and is excited to continue at Crozet Family Dentistry. Her goal is to help patients to understand dental care and treatment so they can be active team players in their own long-term oral health. Dr. DeAngelis prides herself on her attention to detail and enthusiasm to maintain high standards in the practice of dentistry. She is a member of the Academy of General Dentistry and is diligently pursuing the Fellowship award, a distinction that recognizes a commitment to continuing education.
In her spare time, Dr. D. enjoys running and often participates in 5Ks, 10Ks, and half marathons. She also enjoys hiking and is currently planning her next adventure to a national park. When she’s not out and about, she enjoys reading and hosting dinners and game nights with friends. A vegetarian and animal lover, Dr. DeAngelis lives in Charlottesville with her husband, Jon, and friendly cat Mulan.
