Shane Klingonsmith, DMD
Dr. Shane Klingonsmith attended the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Dental Medicine. As a student, he was selected as one of an exceptional few in his class to practice dentistry in the Penn Dental Faculty Practice, alongside UPENN’s prestigious faculty of specialists.
His passion for excellence earned him and invitation to stay at UPENN for a residency in Advanced Education in General Dentistry (AEGD) and ultimately led to a job offer as a faculty dentist. Dr. Klingonsmith turned down an offer of full time employment to enter private practice.
Since 2003, Dr. Klingonsmith has continued his passion for clinical expertise, completing advanced coursework in cosmetic dentistry, oral surgery, pedodontics, periodontics, sedation, and public health. His commitment to lifelong education means he is constantly evaluating emerging dental methods and technologies in order to provide his patients the highest level of comfort and care.
He is also extremely proud of his accomplished wife and 5 beautiful children, who all love going to the dentist.

She has been a part of our dental team since 2001. Whenever you hear laughter that is where you will find Kelley. She makes everyone feel at ease and comfortable at the dental office.
