Dr. Roncone moved back to California to start her private practice. She opened her periodontal office in Fallbrook in 1999. Subsequently, she opened up a second office in Temecula in 2001.

She enjoys all aspects of periodontics and is especially fond of dental implants and periodontal plastic surgery. She frequently refers to herself as a “tooth saver” first and foremost. Her practice goal is to educate her patients while providing excellent periodontal care in order to enhance their oral health and improve their quality of life.
She lives in Temecula with her husband, their daughter, son and two black labs, Hobbs and Bogey. In her spare time, she enjoys playing the piano, snow skiing, tennis, golf and traveling.
