Dr. DiCerbo was born and raised in Philadelphia, Pa. It was here she attended the Widener University School of Nursing, where she earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing. She spent five years as an operating room nurse before beginning her dental education at the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine. After earning her Doctorate of Dental Medicine, Dr. DiCerbo chose to dedicate her career to the dental needs of children and completed a Pediatric Dental Residency at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.
As a specialist in pediatric dentistry, Dr. DiCerbo appreciates the focus on each individual, rather than on a procedure. Her unique training allows her to treat infants and children, but her abilities do not stop there; the individualized care that she is able to provide because of her highly-specialized education also includes caring for children with mental, emotional, and physical disabilities, as well as complex medical diagnoses.
For Dr. DiCerbo, it is important to her that she offers her patients state-of-the- art technology and services. As a board-certified pediatric dentist, she meets the rigorous requirements set by the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry. This includes building on the foundations learned in school by reinforcing her expertise in preventive care, the growth and development of children, and the newest techniques in restoring primary teeth, sedation, hospital dentistry, and dental emergencies.
