Meet Dr. DeLucia
Laurie DeLucia, DDS was born and raised in Malta, NY and graduated from Ballston Spa High School. She is the middle child of her family; both she and her two sisters have careers in the medical field.
After earning her BS in chemistry from SUNY ESF in Syracuse, NY. Dr. DeLucia attended SUNY Stony Brook School of Dental Medicine on Long Island and received her DDS in 2003. She then completed an extended hospital-based dental residency at St. Charles Hospital on Long Island before returning to Syracuse to practice dentistry for five years. She happily returned to her hometown of Malta, NY in 2009.
Before purchasing her own practice, she worked in local dental offices both honing her dental skills and gaining insight through her exposure to different approaches, techniques, and philosophies in the treatments of patients. These experiences helped strengthen her beliefs that each patient deserves as comfortable and enjoyable a dental experience as is possible. It is extremely important to her to be able to take the time to get to know her patients as well as answering their questions and educating them about their dental health. To put her beliefs into action Dr. DeLucia purchased Burnt Hills Dentistry in 2013 from Dr. Richard Fountain, DDS.
One of the aspects of dentistry that Dr. DeLucia enjoys greatly is the opportunity to learn new procedures and techniques. Most recently she has added Traditional Implants, Mini Implants, Cosmetic Orthodontic systems and The Chao Pinhole Technique to her repertoire.
One of her biggest joys in life is seeing her patients and employees happy and healthy.
Dr. DeLucia is very close with her family. She and her husband were married in 2010 and enjoy the simple things in life, most of all family, friends and their “fur babies”. Dr. DeLucia is a huge animal lover. She and her husband love to take the dogs for walks and going for bike rides on local trails. Their last “fur ball” addition was found on one of those bike rides. They can also be found spending time relaxing in the backyard around the pool.
