Beth - Dental Hygienist

Dental hygiene is my profession. I graduated from Dallastown H.S. and Temple University Dental School. I attended St. Mathews Lutheran church and am currently a member at New Hope Bible Church. I enjoy continuing education courses and sharing the new technology and advancements in dentistry with our patients. I'm thankful to have the privilege to serve "Dr. D." (who Truly loves what he does) and his patients, who are like family to me. I've had the honor to serve some of our families for three generations. Everyday I work I am blessed by Beautiful Smiles. I enjoy serving the Lord, my family and friends, singing, dancing, travel, roller coasters, sunrises, sunsets, and Ben & Jerry's and Star Bucks ice cream.


Lori - Dental Assistant

I graduated from York Vo-Tech in 1988 and have been a dental assistant ever since. I've been with Dr. D for over 25 years. I like the fact that I'm needed to make the day run smoothly and feel appreciated by the patients, Dr. D, and the rest of the staff. The work is interesting because every day is different. I enjoy learning new procedures and anticipating what is needed whether it's implants, orthodontics, crowns, etc. I am the mother of four boys, five if you count my husband. One of my sons is a Marine, another is a mechanic and the other two are providing me with grand children.

I love the summer!


Jana - Dental Hygienist

I was born and raised in western North Carolina in the heart of the beautiful Smoky Mountains. I received an Associate of Science degree from Young Harris College, Georgia, completed my Bachelor of Arts degree in biology at UNC Greensboro and completed my 1st year of dental hygiene school at UNC Chapel Hill. I graduated with an Associate of Arts degree in Dental Hygiene at the New Community College of Baltimore, Maryland in 1991.

My work experience includes general family & cosmetic dentistry, pediatric dentistry and periodontics & implant dentistry. I have worked with Dr Dellinger and staff since August 2016. Being a dental hygienist is so rewarding because of the people I meet and helping each person achieve their optimal oral health.

I am blessed with one daughter and enjoy entertaining family and friends, reading, going to the lake, picnics and getting back to my mountains as often as possible. A Steelers fan since childhood and love college basketball. GO TARHEELS! I’ve made wonderful friends here who are like family. I enjoy living in York county.

I’m just a North Carolina girl living in a Pennsylvania world!


Jackie - Dental Hygienist

I am a York native and a graduate of York Catholic High School. After high school I attended the Dental Hygiene Program at the University of Pittsburgh and then moved back to York where I met my future husband Tab also a York native. We married in 1983 and moved to Virginia where we lived for 18 years. After that we lived in St Louis for 3 years and then North Carolina for 9 years. In 2013 (after 30 years away from York!) we moved back. We have two sons. Our older son is an Audi Technician and our younger son is a United States Marine.

I started out with Dr. D’s office doing occasional substituting as a dental hygienist and then joined the staff on a permanent part time basis in October 2016. I feel very blessed to be part of such an awesome dental practice! Dr. D and all the staff here are such caring dental professionals, as well as truly enjoyable people to be around. Everyone here places a high priority or providing the best possible dental care to all our patients.


Marge - Front Desk Receptionist

I am a native of Bucks County, PA, but have resided in York for 44 years. I graduated from York College. My husband and I have a son and a daughter. Both are married and I have two grandchildren. My daughter is a graphic designer running her own business as well as a life coach in Philadelphia. My son having earned his PHD in Pharmacology is working for the national Institute of Health in Baltimore. I performed as a vocalist in two different local top 40 cover bands for many years. I also enjoy singing with my church adult choir. I love going for walks, reading and trips to the beach at Key West. I especially enjoy time with my family and grandchildren. I have worked for many years as an administrative assistant as well as several years as a dental assistant. I enjoy working with the patients and really enjoy working with the staff and Doctor Dellinger. Everyone is great to work with, very caring, friendly and professional.


Nancy - Staff Support

A goal of mine is to support the staff and let them know how much they are appreciated by my husband, the patients and me. This long standing staff has been so dedicated and hard working and has truly made a difference in the lives of so many. I also feel my goal is to support Dr. D. He has wanted to be a dentist since the 6th grade and practicing dentistry is his passion. On occasion I fill in for Marge and try not to make too much work for her when she returns. All of us try to troubleshoot with regular meetings in order to improve our practice. I enjoy taking courses and trips. We have three pretty neat, yet different daughters whom we love spending time with whenever possible. Life is an adventure with each of them. They are truly a gift from God and suspect I am not the only parent who has said that about their kids. We have also been blessed with wonderful patients who keep the practice rewarding and interesting. Personal interests also include computer related activities, photography, and teaching and learning with my 5th/6th grade Sunday School class.
