Dr. David Tecosky
Dentistry is a profession which allows me to impact so many people in positive ways, both individually and on a larger, community basis. Keeping one’s oral health in good shape goes a long way towards preventing systemic health issues. Being a restorative general dentist allows me to have an immediate impact in my patients’ appearance, as well as their overall health and well-being.
My passion is to serve patients in the best way possible in order to help them keep their teeth for a lifetime. I enjoy the creativity required to restore someone’s dentition to optimal function and aesthetics. Now, with over 35 years of experience, I have successfully fulfilled my need to help those in need by providing an essential health service and preventing illness and problems later in life.

Outside the Office
A native of Philadelphia, I have enjoyed living, working, and raising my family in such a vibrant community. My wife, Barbara, and I have two daughters, Meryl and Sandra, and a Bichon Frise named Coco to keep us company at home. I enjoy exercising my creativity through ceramics and painting, and of course, through creating beautiful smiles in the office.
An active Rotarian since 1999, I have raised money to help eradicate polio worldwide, and have contributed to many other community service projects over the years through my service with the Rotary Club.
