Meet Our Team

Dr. DeLappe grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area. He graduated from the University of California San Francisco School of Dentistry. Dr. DeLappe is a General Dentist and has focused his practice on the care of children.

Kid Dental, LLC was founded in 2011 in response to the community’s need for a dentist who is dedicated to the care of underprivileged children.

Even though our dental practice is forward-thinking, with state-of-the-art facilities, we still adhere to the simple, important values that make this community so wonderful. From the very beginning, our dental practice will work to make a difference in our community. We encourage all of our employees to volunteer their time to help educate our community about the benefits of good oral health!
