Dr. Vijaya Cherukuri

I really enjoy the opportunity I have as a dentist to serve my patients.. Since opening our Chino office doors in 1988, I have seen families grow in our practice and now see their children and grand children.

I also have the privilege of working alongside a wonderful team who share family values and take pride in serving others. This creates a comfortable atmosphere where you can feel safe and cared for.

While maintaining the time tested values of trust and respect and as a life- long – learner, I have kept up with the technology trends, procedures and techniques and feel blessed that as a team we have been able to deliver our services efficiently and continue to provide optimal esthetic and functional and long lasting results in a trusting environment.

As a family practice dentist, I take care of patients of all ages and feel particularly skilled with taking care of patients with special needs and dental anxieties. Taking the time to listen and patiently addressing concerns with empathy goes a long way.

I received my dental degree from Osmania University and followed it with extensive training at UCLA.. With my passion for learning, I feel well trained to serve most patients’ dental needs including placing and restoring implant, root canals and crowns, wisdom extractions, fillings restorations making our office truly a “one stop dental office”.

With a healthy mix of the old and the new, we are uniquely qualified to deliver a super positive dental experience, that so many patients seek . Hence, I t ruly believe that our office is the best kept gem of Chino Valley”

My children Adarsh and Anand are the spark of my life and continue to inspire me to be the best that I can be. As an only child , I am deeply engaged in the care of my octogerain and nonagenerian mom and dad.. My five year old maltese, Aspen, is the baby whose unconditional love uplifts my spirits. I love travelling and look forward to making more trips over the coming years. Life happens once and filling it with happy experiences remains my ultimate goal.

Theresa Lucero

RDA/Treatment Coordinator

I’m the youngest of three children and lived in California my whole life. I graduated from Chino High School in 1994 and went straight into the dental assisting program where I graduated top of my class and received my RDA license in 1995. With all the new advancements and technology in the dental field I expanded my career and received my Phlebotomy license in 2019. I enjoy working hand and hand with the doctor and truly love what I do. I take great pride in helping others ease their fear of the dentist and treat all my patients as if they are my family members and they matter. I have two amazing children Sebastian and Emily and try to spend as much time with them before they are off to college. I also like hiking, concerts and finding new places to explore.
