Even as a little girl, Dr. Wendy Magda knew she wanted to be a dentist. She began her career as a dental assistant and then a hygienist before moving on to Temple University School of Dentistry in Philadelphia. She graduated magna cum laude in 2004 and was awarded membership into the National Dental Honor Society, Omicron Kappa Upsilon (OKU) fraternity.
After graduation, Dr. Magda began working alongside another dentist. Comfortable in her work environment, she never had any intention of opening her own dental practice. However, an opportunity came along that she couldn’t pass up and in 2006, she launched her practice. Since then, she’s been committed to helping patients beautify their smiles, maintain their dental health and improve their appearance, giving them the confidence they deserve.
She says she is particularly proud of the strong family environment she and her staff have created.
“It is so important that we are all on the same wavelength. Our goal is to be kind, compassionate, thorough, nurturing, friendly, and listen to our patients.”

In the summer of 2008 I attended a dental assisting program which sparked my interest in dentistry. For almost 8 years I worked in general dentistry until I decided to expand my knowledge to Orthodontics. Working closer with kids and adults I gained independence working individually as well as renewed excitement working in this field. Now 6 years later working alongside Dr. Magda, I enjoy practicing and learning about dentistry and educating patients along the way. In my spare time I enjoy being outdoors and spending time with my family.
