Rob Pascarella, RDH – Hygienist

I grew up in Bradford, PA and went to Bradford Area High School. After graduation, I attended The University of Pittsburgh at Bradford, and Erie Community College where I earned an Associate’s Degree in Dental Hygiene in 2004. I joined the Family Dental Wellness Team in the spring of 2013, but have been working in the dental field for 10 years now! I love working with all age groups and enjoy getting to know each and every patient. It is a goal of mine to make sure everyone that sits down in my chair is comfortable and at ease & understands the connection between oral and systemic health! I still live in Bradford, PA and when I’m not working I enjoy being outside during the summer swimming, and working on my house. I always enjoy time spent with my friends, family and pets.
Amy Vollmer, RDH – Hygienist

I currently reside in Port Allegany, PA. My father was in the navy so I grew up a military dependent and moved around frequently, I call the state of VA my home, I was born there and after several moves I ended up back there where I graduated High School. I have two sons who are very involved in wrestling so we spend most of our weekends traveling to wrestling tournaments all over. My hobbies include kayaking, camping, fishing, and visiting wineries. We  also have a chocolate lab, her name is Cabela.

I joined Dr. Schneider’s team on August 5th, 2014. My primary responsibilities include direct patient care. I am one of our hygienists that take care of the cleaning and gum therapy needs of our regular patient base in addition to educating the patients on their overall health. 
Patient education is also a large part of my hygiene duties and I make a strong effort to stress the importance of proper oral hygiene and how gum disease can affect their overall health.

Although I’ve only have been working for Dr. Schneider for a short time I love the atmosphere in this dental office, everyone is great! I absolutely love what I do. Working with the patients has strengthened my commitment to my career. I am a 2008 graduate from Monroe Community College where I have earned a degree in applied science in Dental Hygiene. Through the years I have developed a better understanding of the dental field and have a stronger commitment to educating the public on the importance of their overall health. When I’m not at work enjoying time with my patients, I’m at home enjoying time with my two sons.
Trish Tyler, RDA – Dental Assistant and Clinical Director

My name is Trisha Tyler, I have been a dental assistant for 22 years. I am very passionate about the field of dentistry. I enjoy learning new techniques and new materials and the ever-changing surge to better serve patients. I have had the good fortune to work for a few cutting-edge offices. I am thrilled to be employed now by Dr. Schneider and share in his journey to grow and improve his practice.

My certifications include DANB, CDA, NY State License, RDA, EFDA. I have been certified in the use of the Odyssey Navigator Laser. I am currently learning Cerec technology and Orthophos XG 3D technology. I have been a member of the OCOI implantology in the past. I began my career in an office that specialized in pediatrics and orthodontics.
During this time, I also spent one Friday a month in the OR performing full- mouth rehabilitation under general anesthesia. From there I began working in an office that was solely orthodontics. However, I quickly learned that I missed the restorative aspects. I then went into an office that was mainly general dentistry. After the Dr. completed his Pankey education, we then began specializing in occlusion, full-mouth rehabilitation and strong patient relationships.

When I am not enjoying my work, I enjoy spending time with my family. Our favorite past times include during this time 4 wheeling, hunting, shooting competitively and snowmobiling. Our bird dog, Maddie is a big part of our daily living also. We plan a weekend every year to attend the drag races in Redding PA, and an occasional dirt track race. We love living here in the southern tier area and enjoy all the outdoors has to offer.
Kylie Lamont, RDA – Dental Assistant

Born and raised in Eldred, PA I am a proud 2011 graduate from Otto-Eldred Jr/Sr High School. After High School I struggled with what direction I wanted my life to go in. I attended two different colleges before I decided and dedicated my life to becoming a Dental Assistant. I always was fascinated with teeth and I never realized my true passion for Dentistry until I started Dental Assisting School. For my secondary education I chose to attend Great Lakes Institute of Technology in Erie, PA. I was a straight A student and I was the only one who graduated with honors in the class of 2014. I am certified in CPR and DANB Radiation Health and Safety.

Growing up I was taught to be respectful and passionate in everything I do. I am so thankful for my family; they have pushed me to be the best I can be. Every day I strive to take on more tasks and learn as much as I can. 
With every step I take my family is right there supporting me. My parents and my brother are my biggest supporters and without them I would not be where I am today.

In my spare time I enjoy being outdoors and spending time with my family. I am family oriented and was happy when I accepted a job at Family Dental Wellness June 16, 2014. The team in this practice is what I like to call my second family. From the moment I walked in the door everyone treated me like family. Everyone here is friendly and caring and goes above and beyond to put the health of the patients first.

I am looking forward to my future at Family Dental Wellness. I am a recent Dental Assistant graduate and I am optimistic about my future. I not only enjoy assisting, but getting to know our patients and their families. I am happy to say that I am gaining knowledge in many areas of the practice on a daily basis.

The time spent at this practice I have gained the knowledge and confidence to push forward with my career and education. I have been with Dr. Schneider and his Team since the summer of 2014 but, I have to say I feel like I have worked here for years! The personal motivators followed by important dental care has me feeling like I am completely a part of a team. Starting at the front desk and all the way back to Dr. Bernie himself the dental experience patients receive will have a positive outcome not only for our patients, but each team member as well!
