Meet the Doctors

Dr. Sherri Salvatore, DMD

Dr. Sherri Salvatore lives right here in Pennington Borough with her husband, Rick and their three children; Anna, Julia and Beck. She has been practicing Orthodontics in the area for nearly 17 years and is a certified Damon Orthodontist who treats children and adults (It is never too late!). She is committed to providing the most innovative techniques and treatment including Insignia custom braces, Damon clear, Invisalign and Invisalign Teen, Myobrace and other interceptive early orthodontic treatment.

In 1998, Dr. Salvatore earned her dental degree from the University of Pennsylvania followed by an internship at New York Hospital, Cornell Medical Center, in New York. In 2002, she completed her post-doctoral certificate in Orthodontics from Albert Einstein Medical Center in her beloved Philadelphia. 

She has been influenced by so many great teachers throughout her life and strives to continue her education and persist in advancing in both skill and technology.

In her spare time she can be found pursuing art, painting, drawing, and creating.


Dr. Hetal Patel, DMD

Dr. Hetal Patel, or "Dr. H" as she is known to her patients, is a board eligible candidate of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry. She grew up in Florence, NJ and was valedictorian in high school. Upon graduating high school, she accepted admission to a highly competitive accelerated seven-year BA/DMD program affiliated with the New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) and Rutgers School of Dental Medicine (RSDM). She then went on to complete a rigorous two-year pediatric dentistry program at the NYU Lutheran Hospital in Brooklyn, NY.

Dr. Patel is trained in various modes of behavior management and evidence-based dentistry. Her gentle and compassionate tone will allow your child to feel comfortable throughout the appointment. One of her main goals as a pediatric dentist is to have every child leave with a happy experience and a smile on their face. This enables her to create a long-lasting and trusting relationship with every child and parent.

In their free time, Dr. Patel and her husband enjoy traveling, bicycling, trying out new restaurants, spending time with friends and family, & watching sports (especially basketball and football) together.


Dr. Darren Loew, DDS

Dr. Loew feels that orthodontics is the greatest profession on earth. It allows him to have a unique relationship with children at a very important time in their lives. It also enables him to help adults achieve better oral health and often do something they have always wanted but could not afford to do previously: Show off a beautiful smile!

Dr. Loew attended Bucknell University, where he received a bachelor’s degree in psychology and education. He completed his Doctorate of Dental Surgery at SUNY Buffalo School of Dental Medicine, and his orthodontic residency at Children’s Hospital.

He serves on the faculty at Washington Hospital Center, where he teaches the orthodontic residents. This is a great way for him to keep up on the latest that orthodontics has to offer and give back to the profession he loves. Dr. Loew also attends many continuing education courses throughout the year.

Dr. Loew is highly involved in the community as a local business owner, and loves knowing, seeing, and interacting with so many wonderful people in and out of the office. He has been active in the Rotary Club for many years and recently served as president of his chapter. He visits local schools and speaks to third-grade classes about their dental health during Children’s Dental Health Month in February.

Dr. Loew is married to his wonderful wife Liz, whom he met in college. They have four amazing children — Sarah, Katie, Meredith, and David — with whom he loves spending time and enjoys watching grow. When he has free time, he enjoys physical fitness, skiing, traveling, and of course, playing golf.
