  • Josslyn Kitzhoffer

    Dental Assistant, Instructor

    Josslyn started her dental journey at The Lehigh Valley School of Dental Assisting in 2009, and never looked back! Josslyn worked in orthodontics right out of the program, and shortly after, she moved onto oral surgery, where she has been employed by St. Luke’s Oral Surgery for the past 13 years, and she loves what she does! Some people are terrified of not only the oral surgeon, but also going under anesthesia, and to be able to make them trust the doctor and the care given to them, is the greatest feeling for Josslyn. When Josslyn is not helping you love your smile, she enjoys camping with her family, supporting her daughter at cheerleading, and snuggles with her Goldendoodle Barkley.
