Working together to put your child (and you!) at ease and give kids a positive, fun dental experience.
Jeannine E. Wyke DMD, PC
‘‘I always tell my patients who are nervous that although this may not be their favorite thing to do, it is something we must do for the rest of our lives and we can have fun along the way!”
Dr. Wyke was born and raised in Philadelphia. She met her husband, David, in dental school, and the couple made the Lehigh Valley their home in 1998. Together, they have two wonderful children, a son, Craig, and a daughter, Charlie. They are the couple’s greatest accomplishment. Together, the Wyke family enjoys traveling and spending time at the shore. They are also big sports fans. Many of her patients love seeing them at the Iron Pigs or Phantoms.
Growing up her parents placed a strong emphasis on education, which led to Dr. Wyke becoming the first in her family to go to college. She then went to dental school and furthered her knowledge by obtaining specialist pediatric dentistry education.
Since the fourth grade, Dr. Wyke has wanted to be a dentist. She developed this interest because she loved going to her pediatric dentist when she was growing up. The idea of being able to help people stay healthy and smile really appealed to her. Her parents encouraged her to work hard and were always there to cheer her on!
Now as a successful pediatric dentist in Bethlehem, PA, Dr. Wyke loves getting to know her patients and watching them grow up. She wants to be an example to young men and women who wish to pursue dentistry. In fact, four of her patients have gone on to become dentists!

Angie was born in Pennsylvania and is a twin. She is 100% Italian and is fluent in this wonderful language. She started in dentistry because she needed convenient working hours, but then fell in love with the industry. She has experience working in a general practice as an office manager. However, Angie adores working with kids and has been doing so at our office since 2012.
Outside of the office, Angie loves crafts and enjoys spending time with her two amazing children, Isabella and George. They take annual trips to Disney or Italy, which are always fun!
Who is your hero? My dad is my hero because he taught me what it’s like to be a strong person and work my butt off to get where I am at today.
What “lesson from mom” do you still live by? ‘God grants me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference.’
What flavor ice cream would you be? I would be Vanilla Bean with Reese’s peanut butter cups. It’s my favorite and who doesn’t like Reese’s peanut butter cups?
Joann has been married to her husband, John, for over 30 years. She lives in Bethlehem Township and has two daughters and son – and has nine grandchildren! Joann has been a dental assistant since 1974 and has been at Dr. Wyke’s office since the beginning.
She chose dentistry as she wanted to do something in the medical field. Joann splits her time between a general dentist’s office and our pediatric office.
Working with children is something she finds super rewarding, especially when they leave smiling. Joann loves interacting with our patients and listening to their stories – there is truly never a dull moment.
Outside of the office, she loves going to the beach, watching her grandchildren in sporting events, swimming, and family picnics.
Who is your hero? My father for serving our country in WWII.
What “lesson from mom” do you still live by? Mom always said live each day to your fullest because you never know what tomorrow brings!
What flavor ice cream would you be? Chocolate walnut.
Growing up in Bethlehem, Pam has worked in the dental field since the age of 14. As a child, Pam was fearful of the dentist. Her parents did everything to help her overcome this fear, even taking a taxi to the dental office so it was more fun! Her experience being scared really helps her understand how some children feel when they visit the office.
She finds it so rewarding to see a child go from being fearful to being excited. In fact, sometimes it is the same patient who was in tears during their first visit that now gives her hugs when he/she leaves. Pam finds it such an awesome experience seeing a child smile at the end of their appointment.
When not making kids smile, Pam enjoys spending time with her husband Blaine and daughter Alison. She enjoys crafts, such as scrapbooking and card making. She loves to cook and try new recipes. She also likes to travel, especially trips to the beach and Disney!
Who is your hero? My hero is my Dad. He was so patient and never raised his voice and explained everything. He lived until his 80’s and enjoyed life every day and always took the time to be nice to people. I hope that people who know me say I am a lot like my Dad.
What “lesson from mom” do you still live by? This is silly but my Dad would always say ‘when all else fails, read the directions.’
What flavor ice cream would you be? My favorite is mint chocolate chip but I would like to be birthday cake! Because who doesn’t like birthday cakes and birthday parties? It’s always a happy time and makes everyone happy.
Sarah lives in Bangor, PA with her husband and daughter. She wanted a career she could be proud of and was always interested in teeth, so dentistry was the perfect fit. Since graduating from Northampton Community College in 2010 with an AAS in Dental Hygiene, she has enjoyed motivating patients and parents to pursue a lifetime of healthy habits.
Sarah has worked at our office since 2013 and is a keen gardener / DIYer.
Who is your hero? My hero is my Grandfather. He fought in the army during WWII. As a kid, I begged him to tell stories from the war and sat captivated listening to his accounts of close calls and bravery. I will always treasure those memories.
What “lesson from mom” do you still live by? Anger is an acid that can do more harm to the vessel in which it is stored than to anything on which it is poured.
What flavor ice cream would you be? I would be Cherry Garcia because it’s delicious and funky.
As the youngest of five kids, Tara has always enjoyed being surrounded by family. She still lives in the same area she grew up and is married with one daughter. Her interest in healthcare has led her to a very rewarding career working with children. Tara joined our team in 2011 and views us as her second family. When she was 19, she worked in a general practice but loves working with children.
Outside of work, she enjoys spending time with her family and friends. Summertime is her favorite time of the year, as she loves going to the beach, gardening, and being outside.
Who is your hero? I have to say both my parents. Dad was in the military and Mom raised 5 kids. My Dad was a hard worker and retired from the navy. They always put us first and sacrificed so we could have more then they had.
What “lesson from mom” do you still live by? The lesson from my mom was the importance of family and to support each other and stick together. So after losing both my parents my promise to them was to keep our family together.
What flavor ice cream would you be? Chocolate – it’s my favorite.
Where do I begin! My children have been patients of Dr. Wyke for over 7 years now, and we travel over 45 minutes to her practice. Dr. Wyke and her team are AMAZING... compassionate, caring and knowledgeable!

Conveniences for Parents & Fun for Kids
Kids are welcomed to their new dental home with a smile and an exclusive pass to kid's corner (no parents allowed). We make each appointment about them by catering to their individual needs. Our team and office promote a relaxing atmosphere where kids can be themselves and parents can trust they are in good hands.
We want your child to always feel relaxed in our office, which is why we use the latest technology to ensure kid's comfort. We use digital x-rays to reduce radiation and even offer sedation for our more nervous kids. Our technology makes your visit more convenient through same-day claims and paperless forms.
Dr. Wyke and our team work closely with Mom and Dad when making a final decision on the best treatment. We take time to explain each service to your child too so they understand what is going on. It is our aim to provide a range of options and only pursue the one both child and parent are happy with.
