Dr. Debbie Parnes

Dr. Parnes discovered her passion for dentistry during her junior year at Cornell, while interning at New York-Presbyterian Hospital. She landed in the dental department, and realized that dentistry, specifically orthodontics, would allow her to solve problems with her hands, as well as get to know patients and make a positive impact on their lives.

Dr. Parnes graduated first in her class from UPenn Dental and continued her orthodontic training at Temple, where she focused her master’s thesis on Office Design. She worked in private practice in New Jersey for several years, and started seeing patients on the Main Line in 2015. In addition to maintaining Dr. Hill’s excellent results and quality of care, Dr. Parnes is committed to enhancing the practice through continuing education, efficient systems, and the latest technology.

As a mom and former braces-wearer herself, Dr. Parnes takes time to connect with her patients of all ages. She likes to tackle do-it-yourself projects and crafts, so you will find a quick DIY activity or coloring books in the reception area for entertainment. She and her husband go way back — all the way to kindergarten in the New York suburbs — and they are happily making themselves at home and raising their children, Jacoby and Estie, on the Main Line.

As a Wallingford native, Dr. Hill has considered it a privilege to provide orthodontics services to his neighbors on the Main Line since 1977. He built his practice on meticulous attention to detail, the highest regard for results, and genuine interest in each patient.

Dr. Hill attended the University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine and completed his orthodontic training at Georgetown University before returning home to the Philadelphia area. He began his practice in Paoli, and in 1999 added a Wayne location at the encouragement of his dental colleagues. In addition to maintaining a private practice, he spent 10 years as a clinical instructor at the UPenn School of Dental Medicine.

In 2015, he invited Dr. Parnes to join the practice, knowing they shared similar treatment philosophies and that his patients would benefit from her expertise in current orthodontic technique.

Dr. Hill and his wife live on the Main Line, and they have four children and seven grandchildren.
