Meet the Ann Donnelly Dental team.
Dr. Tucker grew up in the beautiful state of Oklahoma and made her way to the Bay Area to earn her undergraduate degree from Stanford University. Returning to her home state for several years, Dr. Tucker earned her dental license from the University of Oklahoma College of Dentistry, graduating with honors. Feeling the undeniable pull back to the Bay Area, she and her husband returned to start their family in San Francisco where she has been practicing since.
Dr. Tucker embodies the thoughtfulness and caring that we try to provide to each of our patients. In her free time, Dr. Tucker enjoys spending time with her family and friends, exploring the beauty of California by hiking and camping, cooking, and going to museums. She loves music, movies and going out to eat.
Dr. Ann Donnelly was born in San Francisco and raised by two parents who dedicated their lives to bettering the community. Her mother was an elementary teacher and her father was a dentist for almost 40 years, inspiring her love of dentistry at an early age.
A lifelong Californian, Dr. Donnelly earned her bachelors degree from the University of California, Berkeley, and continued her education at the University of Southern California School of Dentistry, where she received her DDS.
Dr. Donnelly is licensed by the Dental Board of California and is a member of the American Dental Association and the San Francisco Dental Association. A dentist with a grasp of the most innovative, minimally invasive new procedures, Dr. Donnelly is dedicated to lifelong learning and practice of the most current and advanced techniques.
Dr. Donnelly spends time with each patient to get to know them personally and ensure they are satisfied and comfortable with their treatment. She knows that each person has different needs and expectations and will work with each individual to achieve maximum oral health, restore function and give them a smile they can be proud of.
Through a combination of state of the art technology and genuine devotion to the unique needs of each patient, Dr. Donnelly preserves healthy teeth and gums, alleviates oral discomfort and improves the appearance of San Francisco’s smiles on a daily basis.
In her free time, Dr. Donnelly can be found enjoying San Francisco and the Bay Area with her husband Jamie, their two children and their trusty German Shepard.
Dr. Donnelly has been practicing in downtown San Francisco since 2005 and plans to spend the rest of her career giving the community healthy smiles!
Shoichi was born and raised in San Francisco. He earned his bachelor's degree in Integrative Biology from the University of California at Berkeley, along with a minor in Entomology (yes, he studied bugs!). From there he went on to complete graduate school at the University of Los Angeles School of Dentistry, where he earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery.
Shoichi chose a career in dentistry because he truly enjoys working with people. He believes few professions allow one to follow along with people through life on an ongoing basis. In fact, he has seen many of the same patients for over 15 years! Shoichi says, "It is a privilege for me to be allowed to render such service for people, and something that I take seriously. It also helps having wonderful people to work with, both patients and our team."
While many San Franciscans take advantage of the gorgeous hiking trails along the city, Shoichi prefers activities with less walking! In his free time, Shoichi enjoys camping, road trips, movies, drawing, painting, and sculpting. Although, his favorite thing to do is spend time with his wife and two kids (his very funny kids)!
Trina was born and raised in San Francisco, and obtained her degree in clinical dental assisting from Bryman Corinthian College and City College of San Francisco. She is a registered dental assistant with over 17 years experience in general dentistry and specialty dentistry such as periodontics and dental implant placement. Her expertise, compassion, and dedication to her profession cannot be overstated.
Trina discovered her passion for healthcare at an early age during routine visits with her childhood dentist (some pleasant and others unpleasant). She grew to understand the importance of a person's teeth to their overall health. She chose a career in dentistry because it allows her to provide direct patient care. She is extremely knowledgeable and helps guide our patients to make the best decisions for their overall health and smile! Trina says, "It's a pleasure working with Dr. Donnelly and the team as we strive everyday to keep our patients feeling comfortable and appreciated."
In her free time, Trina enjoys attending music festivals with her girlfriends, cooking, reading, and interior designing, but above all, she loves spending time with her wonderful family.
