After graduating from Temple University School of
Dentistry in 2002, I completed a general practice residency at Abington Memorial Hospital. Since then I have gained more then a decade of private practice experience in New York and Pennsylvania, and have been serving my home town of Clarks Summit with my sister for the past 5 years. My experiences have helped me be prepared all aspects of my profession with both expertise and excitement. Growing up with a grandfather who was a dentist and my father was a pediatrician, I learned that a career could be a gift that could actually touch lives, not just a way to pay the bills. I attribute my ability to establish a sympathetic doctor/patient relationship to values I learned from my father, a well respected pediatrician. Dr. Thomas Zukoski was disciplined in the time-honored tradition of providing patients with both care and compassion, qualities he instilled in me and my sister. My philosophy of practice is to give patients my full attention and establish a caring relationship.
The value of achieving academic excellence, that I gained from my Jesuit education at Scranton Prep and the University of Scranton, have led me to stay abreast of the latest developments in dentistry by attending far more then the state standard of post graduate workshops and seminars annually to keep up with the high paced and fast growing demands of dentistry today.
When I am not in the office, I am enjoying time with my husband, Rod and our 3 lovely children. We love to spend time outdoors taking advantage of all that NEPA has to offer. I also enjoy running, hot yoga, crossfit, gardening, and volunteering.
