Mark E. Rongone, DDS
Dr. Mark Rongone received his Doctorate of Dental Surgery degree from the Creighton University School of Dentistry in 1985 and afterward joined the US Navy. After spending four years on active duty, where he received advanced training in multiple dental specialties, he then moved to Berwick, Pennsylvania and went into private practice. During this time he stayed in the Navy Reserves, where he has spent the last 25 years.
As a busy comprehensive dentist in Berwick, Pennsylvania since 1989, he focuses on restorative, cosmetic and implant dentistry. He also dedicated time to serve as a dentist on the US Aircraft Carriers John F. Kennedy CV-67 and the Harry S. Truman CVN75. He also served as the Dental Department Head for multiple humanitarian assistance missions to western Africa and Alaska.
His alternative approach to dentistry is in the office atmosphere. While providing the highest quality of dentistry, he creates an environment of more fun and less fear. Most patients call him “Dr. Mark”, and his natural ability to put people at ease with his honesty, sense of humor and approachability keeps long-time patients coming back and continually referring their friends and family. His “chair-side manner” is usually accompanied by a large smile and a big laugh.
Dr. Rongone has continued to expand his base of dental knowledge and skill by completing hundreds of hours of continuing education in the art of dentistry at institutions all across the United States. He is an active member of the American Dental Association, Academy of General Dentistry and the Pennsylvania Academy of General Dentistry.
Most recently, Dr. Mark Rongone received the Academy of General Dentistry (AGD) Fellowship Award during the AGD 2014 Annual Meeting. The AGD Fellowship Award is presented to dentists who seek to provide the highest quality dental care by remaining current in their profession. To earn this prestigious honor, Dr. Rongone completed 500 hours of continuing dental education and passed a comprehensive written exam.
As a Fellowship Award recipient, Dr. Rongone joins only 6,400 active AGD Fellows in the United States who have gone above and beyond the basic requirements to care for their patients' oral health.
