Meet Dr. David P. Recigno
David Recigno DMD
Dr Recigno was born and raised in Willow Grove PA. After obtaining his undergraduate degree at Georgetown University in Washington DC, he returned to Philadelphia to attend Temple Dental School. Dr Recigno is committed to lifelong learning in dentistry and averages over triple the amount of yearly continuing education hours required by his dental license. He has attended courses across the world at The Pankey Institute, the Spear Center, the International Congress of Oral Implantologists, the American Dental Association, and Q-Implant Symposium to name a few.
In his spare time he enjoys cooking/grilling, biking, snowboarding, wakeboarding, and relaxing with his wife Danielle and their rescue dog Penny.
" I opened Willow Grove Dentistry in 2011 to realize my vision of a modern, clean, state-of-the-art dental office that provides top notch dentistry and customer service . We know that many people experience hesitation or anxiety in regards to dental visits, and we strive to make our office as inviting and comfortable as possible. I enjoy getting to know my patients and learn about their families and lives. I love my profession and couldn't see myself doing anything else. "
Stephanie, Registered Dental Hygienist
Hi, I'm Stephanie! I'm one of the Dental Hygienists that works side-by-side with Dr. Recigno. I grew up in Philadelphia, where I still currently live. I am a certified Expanded Functions Dental Assistant, as well as a Dental Hygienist. I attended Manor College for both degrees. I love working in the dental field and I couldn't imagine doing anything else. My favorite parts of being a Dental Hygienist are how a patient feels right after I clean their teeth and getting to know my patients on a personal level. I will help you maintain your oral health and keep your smile looking its very best! Just recently my husband, John, and I welcomed a brand new baby girl. When I am not working I am taking care of my family and spending as much time with loved ones as I can. I love to try new foods and am always looking for a new restaurant to visit.

Hi, I'm Alexandra! I am one of the hygienists at Willow Grove Dentistry. My job is to keep your mouth as clean and healthy as possible. I was born and raised in Philadelphia and I received my Associate of Science in Dental Hygiene at Manor College. I come from a family of dentists and hygienists, so you could say the fascination with teeth runs in the family. My favorite parts of my job are when a patient says their teeth have never felt so clean and when they are much happier with their smile! I spend all my free time with my family and friends. I love to read, travel, and try new things.
