Dr. Barroner grew up in Hollidaysburg, Pennsylvania and moved to southwestern Pennsylvania to complete her undergraduate studies at Washington & Jefferson College. After completing pre-dental courses and graduating with a BA in Psychology cum laude, she moved to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and earned a D.M.D as valedictorian at Temple’s Kornberg School of Dentistry.
While in dental school she served on many committees and also participated in several volunteer and humanitarian opportunities to help provide dental care to underserved populations. She also received recognition from her faculty members by being elected to join the elite group of dental professionals in the dental honor society Omicron Kappa Upsilon (Kappa Kappa Chapter). Dr. Barroner was also awarded the Dr. Benjamin Homer Award-presented to the senior student who has demonstrated scholastic excellence and exemplifies the qualities and ideals of integrity and civility; the Horace Wells Award-to the senior student for outstanding achievement in the field of dental anesthesiology; and the Sigma Epsilon Delta Dental Fraternity’s Dr. Reuben Matzkin Award-to the student who has obtained the highest academic average over four years.
After completion of dental school, Dr. Barroner pursued specialized training in anesthesiology in Indianapolis, Indiana at Wishard Hospital. She was then accepted into the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Program at the University of Rochester in upstate New York, under department chairman Dr. Lee Pollan, former American Association of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons president. Her training took place in a preeminent level-1 regional trauma center, which received medical flights from hospitals as far south as Pennsylvania and north to the Canadian border. The program focused on office-based dental and jaw surgery and anesthesia, dental extractions, dental implants and bone grafts, jaw repositioning surgery, facial trauma, and TMJ disorders. Dr. Barroner also published scholarly articles specific to the field of oral & maxillofacial surgery.
After completing her formal training as an oral and maxillofacial surgeon, she continues to stay up-to-date by attending continuing education courses and by maintaining current board status and licensure. She has practiced within two well-established Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery practices in Pennsylvania since completing her oral surgery training and this experience has allowed her to transition into beginning her private oral surgery practice. Above all, she has learned to place her patients first in all professional considerations, and has been rewarded with happy, appreciative patients. This is surely one of the most important lessons she has acquired during dental school, residency, and private practice. She continues to find the entire scope of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery fascinating, and looks forward to a long profession as an oral surgeon serving the Pittsburgh, South Hills and Washington communities.
In her downtime, she enjoys spending time with family (husband Justin, daughter Marley and their pets) and friends. She especially enjoys travel, snowboarding, and community activities.
