Meet Our Team

Evelyn Grace S. Neglerio, DMD

Doctor Evelyn Grace S. Neglerio

Dr. Evelyn Grace Neglerio received her Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) degree from the Centro Escolar University, School of Dentistry in the Philippines. After working in several offices throughout San Diego, she decided to open a practice of her own to better serve the local community where she and her husband raised their three kids. She is very fun loving and enjoys getting to know her patients, and vice versa as everyone becomes family to her. She loves tending to her garden (orchids are her favorite!), spending her mornings walking before work, and spending time with family especially with the newest addition, her grandson.

Dr. Neglerio believes Cynthia is an essential component of the office since she is always loyal to her work, and always provides excellent care for our patients. When you meet Cynthia you'll learn her laugh is just as contagious as her smile. In or out of the office, Cynthia enjoys dancing.

Please welcome Joanna's littler sister, Samantha, the newest face of the practice! Just like her sister, she welcomes all patients with a smile. When calling the office, you may confuse Sam for Joanna as they sound exactly a like. Samantha has been helping out in the front for about one year now. She handles most phone calls, schedules appointments for our patients, and can even verify patient insurance benefits. When she is not in the office, Sam also works for 91x, Magic 92.5, and z90, San Diego's local radio stations. If Sam is not in the office, at the radio station, or traveling the world, you can find her at the dog park with her new husky pup, Mochi.
