Team & Office

We love what we do, who we do it with, and who do it for!

I was born and raised in Mexico City, where I lived until the age of 18. I now live in Concord, CA, with my husband, Kevin. We also live near to my best friend – my mom!

Though I never thought I would work for a dentist, I’m grateful to have been introduced to the world of dentistry by Dr. SantucciLearn more about our dentist and his wife, Maribel. I believe when you act with honesty, love, and respect, everything else falls into place – three areas he excels in.

One of the things I love most about my job (besides learning from Dr. Santucci) is being able to provide each guest with a unique dental experience. I’m convinced that through genuine care and kindness, I can make each guest feel like part of our dental family.

I consider myself a hard worker, and I am always pushing myself to achieve new goals. I translate this to my relationships with our guests by striving to provide them with excellent care every time they visit. Plus, I always aim to keep it fun and real!

What do you like to do outside of the office?
I love spending quality time with the most important people in my life; my husband, mom, family, and friends. I enjoy going to the gym, watching movies, and discovering new bars or restaurants. I also really like reading (I’m a slow reader I’m not going to lie!).

Who is your hero and why?
My mom. I have never met anyone as strong and as sweet as her.

Interesting fact about yourself:
I love rooftop bars and taking pictures.

I was born and raised in Rodeo, CA. I currently live in Vallejo, CA, with my aunt Emily, uncle Mike, and young cousin, Quentin.

I graduated from Diablo Valley College in Pleasant Hill in Dental Assisting in 2012 and Dental Hygiene in 2018. Since then, I have worked as a pediatric dental assistant before discovering my passion for dental hygiene.

Growing up, I experienced many dental issues, but neither my dentist nor my dental hygienist ever took the time to explain to me why.

I got into dentistry to make a change. I take my time to teach children how easy and important it is to care for their teeth. Also, I aim to show adults that going to the dentist can be pleasant even if you’ve had a bad experience in the past.

I strive to build trustworthy relationships with each guest at Jess Santucci DDSLearn more on our homepage. I’m always ready to listen and to support anyone in need.

What do you like to do outside of the office?

I’m always busy doing something! I thoroughly enjoy quality time with my boyfriend, friends, and family. When I’m not with them you can find me lifting weights or at a spin or yoga class.

What’s one item from your bucket list?

One item on my bucket list is hiking half dome in Yosemite! I love to hike on a smaller scale, but one day I would love to push myself and make it to the top.

What aspect of your personality helps you in your job?

Thanks to my background in pediatrics, I can help calm apprehensive children and adults in the office.
