A desire to have children feel relaxed and comfortable at the dentist is what attracted Dr. Rose to pediatric dentistry! Having a brother with Down syndrome, who had to be put to sleep to have dentistry done, also motivated her to explore alternatives to treating clients with special needs.
After graduating from Bucknell University, she headed to Temple University School of Dentistry where she met her husband-to-be, Dr. Tim. She received her post-doctoral specialty training at Eastman Dental Center in Rochester, New York, after which the Clays chose Delaware to begin their professional careers together!
One of the select board certified pediatric dentists in Delaware, Dr. Rose’s memberships include numerous professional associations. Her involvement in various community organizations, her church, family, and her children’s multiple activities have been a source of great fulfillment over the years!
In her valuable free time, Dr. Rose loves to be with her family, cook, travel, and care for the Clay family beagle, Lilly!
