OOW – August 10-16, 2015: State College Orthodontics

diane

Congratulations to Dr. Diane Ray of State College Orthodontics in State College, PA, for being chosen as SCL’s Orthodontic Provider of the Week! We thank Dr. Ray and her entire team for their generosity, dedication, and outstanding service they provide to our SCL program participants!

When Dr. Ray joined the SCL family in 2014, there were no children in her area of State College, PA who had applied for braces through the SCL program. Knowing she had treated kids who could possibly qualify, Dr. Ray and her team took matters into their own hands. So far in 2015, State College Orthodontics has recruited and treated six children, donating over $36,000 in treatment!

About Dr. Diane M. Ray, DMD:

Dr. Ray graduated from Penn State with a B.S. with honors in Biology. Post graduation, she attended Temple University School of Dentistry where she received a D.M.D. Dr. Ray soon discovered her passion of Orthodontics, “From the principles of growth and development and the biology of tooth movement to the clinical applications of improving someone’s bite, it provided the perfect balance for my scientific curiosity and desire to help and care for people.”

Following dental school, Dr. Ray attended the University of Maryland Dental School for a three year post-graduate residency in Orthodontics. She also was able to take part in craniofacial genetic research at the Johns Hopkins Hospital Center for Craniofacial Disease and Disorders. In addition to earning a certificate in Orthodontics, Dr. Ray received a Masters of Science in Oral Biology.

Dr. Ray and her husband have two beautiful children and enjoy living in State College. Dr. Ray and her team strive to create a happy and friendly environment for every patient.
