Meet the Team
Denielle has been with our office since 2002 as a Registered Dental Hygienist. Originally from New Jersey, after high school, she attended Harcum College in Bryn Mawr, PA, and received her associate degree in Dental Hygiene. Denielle's passion for dental hygiene makes every day feel like more than just a job. When she was a girl, Denielle used to pretend to be a dental hygienist and polish her siblings' teeth with toothpaste. She highly enjoys building relationships with patients and giving them advice on how to improve their overall dental health.
When she's not in the office, Denielle enjoys spending time with her husband and four children and attending their tennis and golf lessons and soccer games. She tries to live life by echoing the words of Winston Churchill, “The positive thinker sees the invisible, feels the intangible, and achieves the impossible.”

She earned her certificate in Dental Assisting from Delaware Valley Academy and began her career in the dental field in 1990. She then continued her education at Community College of Philadelphia and achieved her associate degree as a Registered Dental Hygienist. After working with us part time for two years, she joined our team full time in 2009. She grew up in Northeast Philadelphia and currently resides in Warminster.
Colleen loves to help educate patients in proper dental hygiene so that they can achieve a better smile. She loves to hear patients say how great their mouth feels after their teeth are professionally cleaned.

She specializes in bringing a compassionate awareness to the care she provides, and fondly recalls patients she’s developed special relationships with over the years.
