Saratoga Dentist Dr. Rong started Genuine Care Dental because he was not satisfied with the level of patient care he saw while working as an associate in various practices. He believes our patients should feel cared for as a person, not just a set of teeth. So, He lives by the philosophy of CANI (constant and never-ending improvement) in his clinical skill excellence, clear communication, hospitality, and customer service. He is so grateful for the relationships he had made with so many of our patients because our wonderful patients support us to be truly our genuine selves. Our patient appreciates the refreshingly honest and transparent approach to give treatments that makes sense to them as an individual. This can be seen in the heartfelt reviews our patients wrote about our doctors and team online. Dr. Rong received his Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Texas, Austin, and his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the University of California, San Francisco in 2010.
Dr. Brandon Lee received his DMD from the Boston University School of dental medicine in 2006. Returning home to Portland, Oregon, he started practicing general dentistry at a large corporate dental clinic. Dr. Lee used his broad skill set to successfully treat patients who needed a variety of dental procedures such as Root Canals, Crowns, Dental Fillings, Tooth Extractions, Dentures, and Dental Implants.
Dr. Lee values all people as unique and special, emphasizing the importance of relationships and communication. His dental aspiration is to listen to each patient’s needs and possible fears and then together develop a treatment plan that is best for that patient.
Over the years, he continues to stay up-to-date on advances in dentistry through continuing education. He also participates in study groups where he learns and practices new procedures that his patients could benefit from.
Dr. Lee’s favorite aspect of dentistry is the relationships that are established over time. His goal is to be a guide for patients to achieve a healthy mouth. Outside of the office, Dr. Lee enjoys spending time with his wife, three boys, a little girl, running, smoking meats, and taking on new projects around the house.
Dr. Lee joined Genuine Care Dental as a specialty doctor. Dr. Lee will provide in-house specialty dental services and is available Mondays and Fridays.

Dr. Leyli Valera decided to pursue dentistry as her career after assisting dentists and medical professionals in Costa Rica and Nicaragua as part of a mission trip. She was excited to help her future patients improve their quality of life through oral care.
She soon graduated from San Jose State University and attended the prestigious Arthur Dugoni School of Dentistry in San Francisco. Following graduation, Dr. Valera completed one year of general practice residency at Albert Einstein Medical Center in Philadelphia. Here, Dr. Valera honed her skills in general dentistry, implant dentistry, pedodontics, emergency dentistry and oral surgery.
Dr. Valera strives to optimize the patient experience, bringing care and comfort as well as high quality dental care. She considers patients as family – providing honest and simplified treatment advice to improve oral health as well as general health. She believes that trust, honesty and education are keys to deciding the best customized treatment plan for each unique patient.
When she is not at the dental office, Dr. Valera values her time with her family and enjoys being outside as much as possible.
I have always been fascinated with the miracle of life and pursued an undergraduate
degree at UC Irvine in the biological sciences. After getting to know my childhood dentist, I fell in love with the idea of being a dentist. I was drawn to the fact that he was a jack of all trades. I liked that he could decide where he wanted to work and did not have to move to where the next job was, like my father. I liked the idea of helping people, being my own boss, being an artist, and working with my hands. I knew I would never be bored doing dentistry.
I went on to graduate from UC San Francisco in 1979. I soon bought a practice in
Folsom, which I loved. But I also met a woman, Bonnie, whom I had fallen in love with. She
started dental school at UC San Francisco in 1981. It was a tough decision, but I had to follow
my heart. I sold my practice and moved to San Francisco again to be near Bonnie. We married after she graduated and moved to Newark, a great area to raise a family. We had Chris and then Jenna, along with assorted dogs.
In 1992, we had the opportunity to buy a practice together in Saratoga. With time we
outgrew the space and moved to our current location in 2004. We now live in Almaden Valley, where I love running and riding my bike in the hills to train for Olympic Triathlons. Due to arthritis in her hands, Bonnie had to retire from dentistry in 2014 and now works as a hospice volunteer and a Furry Friends volunteer with our Corgi, Holly.
As many of you know, I sold the practice in March of 2020 to Dr. John Rong to be able to
slow down and work part-time. When Covid hit, I decided to take some time off. I am glad to be back now, working two days a week. I love getting to know all the new patients and
reconnecting with my previous patients.
