Penn Dental in Chestnut Hill

The University of Pennsylvania Dental Care Network recently opened the Penn Dental Center at Chestnut Hill. The Chestnut Hill practice, located in the Wyndhill Professional Center, 8200 Flourtown Avenue in Wyndmoor, is the sixth office now open in the Dental Care Network, which accommodates the faculty practice of the School of Dental Medicine.

The director of the Chestnut Hill office is Dr. Kenneth Carsto, who is a former director of the Penn Dental Center at Overbrook and associate director of the Dental Care Center. Presently, other staff dentists at Chestnut Hill include Drs. Frank Torrisi, Jennifer Schwartz and Amy Shearer. As the practice builds, plans call for offering a full range of specialty services at the Chestnut Hill location, including periodontics, endodontics and orthodontics.
