Douglas Vallinino, DMD
Dr. Douglas Vallinino has been practicing dentistry since 1991, after earning his Doctorate of Dental Medicine from Temple University Dental School. Before attending dental school, Dr. Vallinino received a B.S. in Chemical Engineering from Lehigh University, and worked for a pharmaceutical manufacturer. Although he quickly rose through the ranks to Plant Manager, he realized his calling was better aligned with helping patients than optimizing equipment! It was then he decided to pursue a career in dentistry.
After graduating from dental school with honors and ranking seventh in his class, Dr. Vallinino entered into practice with his father-in-law, Dr. John Conti of Wayne. In 2000, Dr. Vallinino assumed ownership of the practice, where he remained until January 2017 when he joined the team at Ufberg Dental. In addition to practicing dentistry, Dr. Vallinino teaches Clinical Dentistry at Temple University Dental School. He especially enjoys the opportunity to mentor undergraduate, as well as graduate dental students in all aspects of clinical and patient care, and imparting his knowledge and experience of day-to-day practice management. Dr. Vallinino has been recognized by Suburban Publications as Reader’s Choice Best Dentist on numerous occasions, and has been named a Top Dentist in Main Line Today for many years.
When not practicing dentistry, he enjoys reading, playing the piano, and hiking (usually because his wife makes him do this!). If he’s totally honest, his two favorite activities involve eating or talking about food. Originally from Hackensack, New Jersey, Dr. Vallinino has lived in the suburban Philadelphia area since 1987. He is married to Camille, and has a son, Jordan, who attends Northeastern University in Boston.
