Q: Why pediatric dentistry?
A: It is imperative that children establish a dental home at a very young age. I am aware that this may be a difficult task for a parent or caregiver. My job is to provide guidance in achieving and maintaining this goal.

Q:What is a Board Certified Pediatric Dentist?


Q: What do you like to do in your free time?
A: I enjoy spending time with my family. I love to travel, experience new restaurants, reading, and listening to Jazz. Most of all I enjoy giving back to the community by visiting local schools and teaching children about oral health, and participating in community events such as health fairs to educate families about the importance oral health, especially for their children.

"I was nervous about taking my son to his very first dentist appt.  He is very fearful of the doctors and i did not know how well he would react at the dentist.  Dr. De La Cruz and her staff provided a warm and friendly environment for my son. She took the time to make my son feel comfortable and not overwhelemed and her staff were very kind and welcoming.  I would defiantly recconmend Dr. De La Cruz to my friends and family.."

“II love the team at Treasured Smiles. I've been bringing my daughter there since she was 1. She never has a bad experience and enjoys going to see the dentist. Dr. De La Rosa and team are the nicest people. I'd recommend them to anyone who wants to fund a dentist who will ensure their children have good dental health and zero fear of the dentist.”

“My family and I truly treasure the compassionate staff at Treasured Smiles. Dr. De La Cruz is such a beautiful soul. She is extremely professional and down to earth. She's amazing with children and my children absolutely adore her! My little ones actually look forward to dental visits now. This was not the case a few years back when we went to a different office. Treasured Smiles has a warm, loving atmosphere. I highly recommend them.”

"My son had such a pleasant experience. With him being on the spectrum, I didn't know how he would react, because previous screenings had not gone well. The dentist was patient and explained all the tools to him and what they did. We couldn't have had a better check up!! Thank you!"


“I love this place because my kids love this place. We had a bad experience somewhere else and started coming here a couple years ago. The dentist and staff made my kids feel calm and gave them a fun experience. I always tell my friends and family to come see you!”


“I've been searching all over Loudoun County and really hit a home run with Dr De la Cruz. She is patient kind and does great work. My kids were terrified and now our dental visits are a walk in the park ( extraction, fillings and caps) Highly recommend”
