I was born in 1974 and spent my early years in Norristown, Pa. with my three brothers. I graduated from Bishop Kenrick Catholic High School in 1993 and attended Montgomery County Community College. I started my career as a registered Nurse’s Aide at Regina Nursing Home before moving to Merchantville New Jersey in 1996. I worked as a full time Nanny for two wonderful girls in Cherry hill, NJ who ended up as beautiful flower girls at my wedding.
I currently live in Deptford, NJ with my husband of 12 years and my 9 year old daughter. I have been working as a front desk receptionist/insurance and treatment coordinator since 1998. I joined the Healthy Smiles Family Dentistry team in 2010 and have enjoyed growing my career with the practice.
When not at work, I spend time with my daughter and enjoy being involved in her extra-curricular activities. As a family, we enjoy camping in the summer and mountains in the winter.3
I have been a part of Healthy Smiles Family Dentistry since May 2009 and have worked as a Dental Assistant for over 13 years. I started my career with the United States Air Force in 1998. The military gave me an education in a very exciting field while serving my country and the dental community worldwide. While I consider myself very capable in all aspects of dentistry, I pride myself in providing compassionate patient care.
I am originally a California girl, but have been living in South Jersey for the past 8 years. I have a loving husband and two beautiful daughters; along with 4 fur babies (3 dogs and a cat). I love spending time with my family in my free time and enjoy sports (Go Phillies!!), baking, and listening to different types of music.
I was born and raised in Maple Shade, NJ. I have two brothers who I look up to and two adorable golden retrievers. I graduated from Maple Shade High School in 2007 with no idea what I wanted to do with my life. After switching my major three times I decided that Dental Assisting was at my greatest interest, so I graduated from ASI Career Institute in late 2011. Healthy Smiles is now my second job as a Dental Assistant and I'm very happy with my decision to join this family practice. I plan to go back to school for Dental Hygiene in the future and hope to fulfill my career with this company for many years! :)
I love my job and the staff. I have lived on the Jersey Shore for over 30 years with my husband and two boys. Our weekends are spent at our cabin enjoying various activities.
My name is Patti Philburn. I have been in the dental field since 1979 and absolutely love it. I was born and raised in Catania, Sicily. I have been married for 29 years and have 2 children. I enjoy spending my weekends with my family and spending time on our boat.
