“An oral cancer screening is a quick and painless part of your ordinary dental examination,” says Dr. John Reckner, D.M.D. M.A.G.D. “Although we perform cancer screenings all year long, in April we support OralCancerCause.org, a national foundation that helps patients and their families undergoing treatment for oral cancer.” Throughout the month, the WRR team will be wearing purple ribbons, and educating our patients about the importance of early detection.
On Saturday, March 9, Dr. Todd Weaver, Dr. Chris Zeledon and Dr. David Guengrich were joined by a group of dedicated WRR volunteers for another successful Smile Day in the Souderton office. Many hygienists, assistants and business staff worked together to complete a total of 254 procedures. “It was a wonderful day filled with gratitude from the families, smiles from the children and blessings from the heart,” said Sherry D., WRR implant coordinator. Smile Day is an annual tradition at WRR which provides comprehensive dental care to patients in need in our community.
In recognition of Children’s Dental Health Month this past February, hygienists from Weaver, Reckner & Reinhart visited schools in the area to demonstrate proper brushing techniques and promote dental health. Some of the schools that participated included Zwingli Church Preschool in Souderton and Tabor Hill Nursery School in Woxall.
Additionally, Dr. Chris Zeledon visited several elementary schools including Oak Park Elementary School and Penndale Middle School both in Lansdale, and West Broad Elementary School in Souderton to perform dental exams for students. For the past 11 years, WRR has been participating in this program with local schools to support their mission of educating the community on dental health issues and sharing their resources with those who need them.
Celebrating the holidays and each another as well as serving those in need was the theme of Weaver Reckner Reinhart Staff Appreciation Day! We met as a group at the Harleysville Office in the morning and packed up our Perkiomen Tour bus (THANK YOU PHIL MOYER… our awesome driver for the day!!!) with the donations we have been collecting over the last few weeks for the Stephen Klein Wellness Center in Philadelphia.
THANK YOU TO ALL OUR PATIENTS AND STAFF WHO DROPPED OFF YOUR WARM CLOTHING ITEMS!!
We delivered them personally to the Center on Friday and received a tour of the 28,000 square-foot Center which is committed to addressing the health and wellness needs of people who are currently homeless, formerly homeless, and people living in the North Philadelphia community. Stephen Klein Wellness Center offers primary medical and dental care, psychiatric services, nurse care management, individual, couples and group counseling, peer-led outreach and care coordination, healing touch, on-site legal counseling, and assistance with applying for health insurance benefits.
Following our tour and donation drop-off at the Stephen Klein Wellness Center, our group headed to Philadelphia for a delicious lunch and celebration. From there, we were able to take in the sights of the city before our final stop at the PhillyPOPS Christmas Show.
This holiday season, Weaver, Reckner & Reinhart Dental Associates will be collecting warm, winter clothing donations at both of our offices. These donations will be distributed to a dental facility in North Philadelphia whose patients are in need of these items. Boxes have been placed in both offices and we ask if you would like to contribute, please drop off any new or gently used items such as: hats, gloves, scarves, mittens, sweaters, vests, wool socks, fleece blankets, jackets and coats. If anyone would like to donate, please due so by DECEMBER 7 as our office plans to hand deliver these items to the clinic as a part of their office Holiday celebration. We thank you for your help as we continue our mission of assisting others. If you have any questions, please contact our office for more information.
Weaver, Reckner & Reinhart Dental Associates staff members packed up 16 bags of Thanksgiving dinner trimmings and other essential items for families in our community. Each year, the office comes together to create beautiful Thanksgiving baskets which are delivered to the Keystone Opportunity Center. The Center serves over 200 families every month and always welcomes new donations and volunteers.

To our Wonderful Patients and Community of Friends,
Many of you may have heard that Dr. Reckner’s family home was destroyed by fire this past Saturday. Thankfully, no one was injured but because so many from our community have reached out, we wanted to share a message from Dr. Reckner.
“It has been a fast life-altering 24 hours, but we are all doing very well. Truly all of your well wishes are felt and your offers of assistance are humbling.
To be brief but also keep everyone up to date with accurate information. No one was at home, our dogs included (Willie our barn cat made a run for it), and none of the fire fighters were hurt. The house is completely gone except for our garage and barn, which were bravely defended by so many area fire fighters (we believe 7 companies joined in helping) and our home builders who raced a track-hoe to the scene. When we finally returned home from Cape May, it was all over. We are quite grateful for not witnessing any of the blaze.
The entire family is doing well. We have settled at my in-laws’ house nearby and are comfortable. There is a good, calming feeling, especially for the children, to be with grandparents/parents. Some people only escape a fire with the clothes on their backs, we have a suitcase with shorts and t-shirts!! Kids are already busy getting things ready for school. We are a faith-filled family and know we only lost “stuff”. We continue to thank God for our safety and that of all those involved in the fire. The memories and love we shared in that home continue to live on within us as we replace necessities of daily life.
Continued thoughts and prayers are all we need at this time. We truly appreciate all the offers of assistance, but for now a donation to your local fire department is the best help you could give. The love we feel from my amazing work family, our friends, neighbors, and community keeps us positive and energized as we begin planning to rebuild our home.”
With all our hearts, thank you,
John, Carol, Erin, Clare, Jack and Colin

Dr. Todd Weaver and Dr. John Reckner were recently awarded a Masters of the Academy of General Dentistry (MAGD), the highest honor that the Academy offers. Both Dr. Weaver and Dr. Reckner have worked for 27 years to accumulate the continuing education credits for a Masters. To be awarded a Masters in the Academy, the dentist must log 1,100 hours of continuing education, 400 hours of which are participation and hands-on courses. The credits include 16 disciplines in dentistry. Only one percent of dentists have received this prestigious degree. From this point forward, both doctors will add the MAGD initials following their signatures. This year’s convocation was held in New Orleans, and both doctors were joined by their families to celebrate their achievement.
