Dr. Rooney's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Rooney "I worked for my family dentist one summer while in high school and liked the interaction with the patients. At the time, it never occurred to me that a woman could go to dental school, so I opted for nursing instead. I graduated from nursing school at a time when there was a big influx of women in medicine. My thought then became, if they can do it, so can I. Eventually, I got the BA degree that I needed and was accepted to dental school. After graduating from Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in Boston, MA I returned home to NE Philadelphia. It was hear that I opened my practice in 1991 near where I grew up. In addition to having my private practice, I also am the clinical instructor 1.5 days a week at Manor Dental Health Center in the EFDA program."

Care Philosophy

Patient Comments (1)

I have a phobia about going to the dentist. I feel very comfortable when I need to get any type of dental procedures done there. I get panic attacks and have anxiety. Going to Dr. Rooney's office I feel at ease. The staff are very courteous, friendly and very professional.
