I graduated from Yale with a B.S. in Psychobiology, and then attended UC Hastings College of Law. Upon graduating Magna Cum Laude from the law school, I practiced law for 6 years at the prestigious law firm of Morrison & Foerster, San Francisco office. During my tenure at the law firm, however, I discovered that my passion was not in law, and I decided to change my career about 10 years ago to become the Practice Administrator for this Practice. Over the years, I have grown with the Practice and discovered that I am truly passionate about this Practice and the profession of dentistry. I view my job as ensuring that this Practice continues to deliver outstanding, personalized, and comfortable care to our patients via utmost attention to detail. My goal is to build lasting and rewarding relationships with our patients and other team members to ensure that this Practice is the best there is. As the creative force behind the Practice, I love to introduce and challenge my team members with new and better techniques and ideas and to help my team members grow to achieve and exceed their potentials and goals. But, most of all, I love talking to patients whose lives have been transformed in small and large ways because of our ability to deliver outstanding, state-of-the-art dentistry and service. I am happily married with 2 children; my hobbies include reading, traveling, crafts, and piano.
Delia has been in the dental field since 1993 and joined Dr. Jang's team in 2001. Being in the dental profession has brought a great deal of fulfillment especially in being able to offer our patients many financial options to meet their dental goals and transform their smiles. Delia says, "Three years ago, Dr. Jang transformed my smile by creating a beautiful eight set veneer case for me. I feel fortunate to work with a team of doctors that is 100% committed to patient care. As a result, I make sure to maintain my knowledge in this field relevant and up to date by attending several continuing education courses every year. In the last few years I have attended courses with the California Dental Association (CDA), the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD) and the Spear Institute in Scottsdale, Arizona. My commitment to patient care inspires me to pursue education in this evolving field in order to offer our patients a variety of choices for their dental treatment. I am a busy mother of three children and have been happily married for thirteen years. In my spare time, I love to cook and some of my specialties include: the rosemary roasted chicken with red potatoes, cilantro rice and asparagus, crab/oyster stuffed mushrooms, and flan or peach cobbler."
