Dawn Simpson

Director of Operations

About Me

Dawn originally joined the University of Penn in 2013 as Practice Administrator at our Locust Walk location. With over 30 years of experience in clinical and business operations in dentistry, her transition to Associate Director of Operations was a natural fit. Her love of dentistry is evidenced through the wealth of clinical and administrative knowledge she brings to the Staff and Patients of Penn Dental Family Practice. Dawn also owned a dental consulting firm where she served as an Advisor and Trainer to Dentists throughout the Delaware Valley region, providing independent training on various trade related products and services.
Her primary job here is to oversee the office processes and people, making sure everything runs efficiently and smoothly for our patients. Originally from Arizona, Dawn is married and splits her leisure time between the peace and quiet of the Pocono Mountains and her home in Philadelphia. She loves cooking, reading and playing “mother” to her Dachshunds when not at work. When it comes to any non-clinical questions or issues, Dawn is the “go to” person for our patients.
