My name is Renee. I started working at Lower Merion Pediatric Dentistry in 2004. I have a son, Nicky, who is in his early 20s. I enjoy going to the beach—Margate is my favorite beach town.

Hi my name is Tina. I have worked in our office since 1996. I really enjoy working with children and feel fortunate to have been able to see many of our patients grow up!

Nicole - Staff at Pediatric Dentist in Ardmore, PA


Hi my name is Nicole and I have been working with Lower Merion Pediatric and Adolescent Dentistry for 15 years. I am primarily a front desk receptionist however there are many jobs in the office I am able to undertake! I have 2 beautiful boys who are very much involved in baseball and to say they love baseball is an understatement! Anytime we can get to a Phillies game that's usually where you can find us. I enjoy working out and keeping in shape but my passion is running! One of my favorite runs to participate in is the Broad Street Run! In my free time I enjoy being with my family and friends and being active in my community!
