Our Doctors

JESSICA DICERBO, BSN, DMD
Diplomate, American Board Of Pediatric Dentistry

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. 

Outside of the office Dr. DiCerbo loves to spend her free time with her husband, Vince, and her two sons, Jacob and Jeremy. Dr. DiCerbo also finds great satisfaction in giving back to the community. During her pediatric dental residency, she participated and recruited volunteers for a homeless health initiative. Now, Dr. DiCerbo speaks at local schools about the importance of oral health and volunteers for Give Kids a Smile, an organization where uninsured local children receive dental treatment. She is also an active supporter of JDRF, the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.

field and football at the West Chester University of Pennsylvania where he also earned his Bachelor’s degree in Microbiology.

Inspired to follow in his mother’s footsteps, he began dental school in 2016 at the Temple University Kornberg School of Dentistry where he was president of the Pediatric Dentistry Club
and graduated magna cum laude. He completed his training in Pediatric Dentistry at Cohen Children’s Medical Center, where he was chief resident.
