Meet the Dental Team
Kevin - Accounts Manager
Kevin - Hello, my name is Kevin, and I am the Accounts Manager for Aurora Dental Care. I've been with Dr. Petronio since October of 2007. I enjoy being behind the scenes, working hard to see the success of this practice. My duties include accounts payables, vendor relations, banking, auditing, payroll, and financial reporting. My challenge is to give you the answer as quickly as possible. I am a native of Western New York and currently live in East Aurora with my caring wife, Daisy, and our three little girls, Sipharah, Delorah, and Channah. Family activities throughout the week keep me refreshed and motivated!
My advice to our patients: "I've learned that flossing is a must to keep gums healthy and to keep cavities from starting between teeth."

Dave R- L.C.D.A. Dental Assistant
I live in the southtowns with my lovely wife and beautiful daughter. I drive nearly one hour on a daily basis, and along the way I do not pass a better office. We have more than just a handful of patients at Aurora Dental Care who drive even further than I do. I began my career here as an intern while a student of the Dental Assistant Program at UBEOC. Dr. Deb and Aurora Dental Care's team kindly accepted me and guided me with the same attentiveness you will experience as a member of our patient family. No matter how long it has been, your next visit with us is a step in the right direction to better overall health!
My advice to our patients: " Floss in the shower!"
