Meet The Team

Gloria Ho-Donesky


Gloria Ho-Donesky completed her Bachelor of Arts from San Francisco State University prior to her earning both her Associate of Science in Dental Assisting and her Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene from Loma Linda University. She has served as president of the San Francisco Dental Hygiene Society for two years from 1992-1994.

Her primary focus is on the prevention of gum disease. Her philosophy is to inspire her patients in being co-partners in their own dental health.

As a clinician, she finds the greatest satisfaction is in connecting with her patients and educating them on total wellness.

Outside of dentistry, she believes learning is fun and challenging.  She has been studying voice and sings in different organizations in the bay area.  She has also been studying French, enjoys the opera and loves to travel.

Her skills, knowledge, experiences and friendliness has been a tremendous help to our growing practice. She loves to spend time with her young son. Her outgoing and creative personality makes her a fun team member for our patients and us.

Stacy Blankson


Stacy is one of our dental hygienist. She received her Associate of Science in Dental Hygiene in 2013. Her individual and compassionate dental care is well appreciated by patients. Demonstrating to the patients on how to care for their teeth and introducing technique and products are some of her strengths which she brings to the practice. We learned that she loves to travel and I am sure she would love to share her excursions with you when you meet her. Stacy also is a bit of a Francophile and enjoys practicing her French.
