Diana Rose DDS, MS
Diana Rose DDS, MS, Dr. Diana Rose was born in New Jersey. Her family moved to Danville when she was 10 years old, and she attended school locally at Saint Isidore School and Carondelet High School. Dr. Rose’s interest in orthodontics began when she underwent extensive orthodontic treatment as a teen. This positive experience as well as its outcome inspired her to want to do the same for others. At the same time, a class trip to the University of the Pacific Dental School solidified this aspiration.
Dr. Rose received her Bachelor of Science degree in Kinesiology from UCLA, graduating with cum laude honors. Before entering dental school, she worked as an exercise physiologist at the Pritikin Longevity Center in Santa Monica, CA while volunteering at her dentist’s office. Dr. Rose received her Doctorate of Dental Surgery degree from UCLA, and was nominated by her instructors for membership in Omicron Kappa Upsilon, the national dental honor society. She completed her specialty residency at the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, where she earned both a specialty certificate in Orthodontics and a Master’s of Science degree in Craniofacial Biology. She received special training in the Craniofacial Anomalies Clinic, treating unusual cases requiring interdisciplinary care, and was nominated by her residency instructors for membership in the University of Minnesota honor society Phi Kappa Phi. Dr. Rose practiced in Santa Rosa before opening her current office, where she has been practicing for over 15 years.
Dr. Rose’s philosophy is conservative. She carefully monitors the timing of orthodontic care to keep her patients’ treatment time as brief as possible while still striving to achieve an ideal result. Dr. Rose has a particular interest in cephalometrics and esthetics, and attempts to provide the most ideal result from both the front and profile of the patient’s face. Follow-up of an orthodontic result with retainers is essential. Dr. Rose encourages her patients to return for complimentary follow-up care, and many of Dr. Rose’s patients have continued to return for monitoring of their orthodontic result for many years.
Dr. Rose resides in Danville, and enjoys spending time with her children. Her other pastimes include quality time with friends and family, cooking, dancing, hiking, working out, playing the piano, and various crafts.
