Sanya Sweeney-Fonseca, DMD

General Dentist

I grew up in Croatia which is a beautiful land full of friendly people, but sadly we did not have good dentistry available to us.  From a very early age, I was fascinated with smiles and I noticed that people with beautiful teeth smiled happier, laughed more, and seemed to be living life more.  After my own experience with braces and how it changed my life, I was even more moved about the study of dentistry.  I immediately had the desire to share my feelings and to help people smile happier.  I’m a dentist today, because when I started to smile big my life changed, it boosted my confidence, it invited possibilities, and made me who I am.  After seeing how many benefited from a healthy, attractive smile, I’ve learned we do not treat teeth, we treat people. 
Dr. Sweeney-Fonseca has dedicated her life to helping patients create healthy and beautiful smiles. She is also an award-winning dentist and professional speaker recognized for her expertise and creativity. She was elected as an honorary member of the prestigious OKU Society and currently practices the art and science behind smile designs, CEREC same day crowns, veneers, implants, cosmetic bonding and whitening, as well as general dentistry treatments in our state-of-the-art dental facility in Riverton and Marlton, NJ.
Dr. Sweeney-Fonseca received her Doctorate of Dental Medicine from Temple University in 1992. She completed her residency in Advanced General Dentistry at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital. In the fall of 2003, Dr. Sweeney-Fonseca completed the mastery level of aesthetic dentistry at the prestigious Rosenthal Institute at New York University.  She went on to become an assistant professor teaching post graduate students the art of smile design and cosmetic restoration at New York University from 2005 until 2011.
The recipient of an award in Prosthetic Dentistry from the Prosthodontic Society at Temple University, Dr. Sweeney-Fonseca participates in several professional societies including the Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, the Academy of General Dentistry, the American Dental Association, the New Jersey Dental Association, the Southern Dental Society, and the Burlington County Study Group.

As a professional, my calling is to develop lasting relationships by promoting health and wellness through the provision of dental hygiene care. As a standing member of the American Dental Hygiene Association I encourage and promote the highest standards of education and practice in the dental hygiene profession. Commitment to my patients and their continuing health is practiced by educating myself with the current events, as well as keeping up to date on latest trends and techniques in dental hygiene as we advance as a profession.  A graduate of the Camden County College Dental Hygiene Program in 2004 I was awarded the Hu-Friedy Golden Scaler Award for remarkable skill and talent over the course of my degree.  My professional career began at Dental Wellness of Riverton in October 2004 with Dr. Sanya Sweeney-Fonseca and Dr. Douglas Cohen and I have since continued to care and educate patients as individuals in their specific needs.

Jennifer, RDH

Prior to joining the staff at Dental Wellness I graduated from Camden County College Dental Hygiene in 2004 and have been providing dental hygiene care for patients of Dr Sweeney – Fonseca and Dr Cohen since 2006.  When I decided to pursue a career in dental hygiene I envisioned myself working at an office exactly like Dental Wellness: one that gives superior level in quality as well as compassion. I appreciate all of our patients and want to make them happy that they chose to be a part of our family.  When I’m not working I enjoy being a mom to my two children, relaxing on the beach, and being surrounded by friends and family.
