We are very pleased to welcome back Dr. Christopher M. Zeledon to Weaver, Reckner & Reinhart Dental Associates. Dr. Zeledon is a 2015 graduate of Temple University Kornberg School of Dentistry, and a member of the American Dental Association, and the Academy of General Dentistry. He began working for WRR as a chairside dental assistant in 2007 while studying for his Bachelor’s degree in pre-professional biology at Delaware Valley University in Doylestown, PA. As a dental assistant, he was given the opportunity to take part in a dental missions trip to Honduras and attributes the experience he gained through WRR and Honduras with solidifying his desire to pursue a career in the dental field.
During his dental training at Temple University, he was able to take advantage of various outreach opportunities the school offers to help serve underprivileged communities throughout the Philadelphia area. Dr. Zeledon also volunteered his time through the annual MOM n PA Dental Missions event held in Pennsylvania, and plans to continue his volunteer work through this event.
“We valued Chris so much when he was a dental assistant because of his attention to patient care and his dedicated interest in dentistry. He is excellent with interpersonal relationships and gains patients’ trust with his genuine caring demeanor. These are qualities we saw in Chris as an assistant and the same qualities that will continue to follow him in his dentistry,” says Dr. R. Todd Weaver. “As a dentist, Chris has an intense interest in quality restorative dentistry and esthetics. He loves endodontics and caring for patients who need emergency dental care. As a graduate from Temple Dental School, Chris has trained in advanced reconstructive and emergency care, and has a goal of beginning his Orthodontic education as soon as possible.”
