Meet Our Dentists!
The dental staff — Dr. Jeffrey Ball, Dr. Dale Collins, and Dr. Amy Cravath — at Abington Dental Arts carries out the mission of working together to realize a shared vision of uncompromising excellence in dentistry.
To fulfill this vision, we listen to those we serve; earn the trust and respect of our patients, our fellow dentists, and the community; exceed any and all expectations; ensure a creative, challenging, and compassionate professional environment; and strive for continuous improvement on all levels.
Dr. Jeffrey S. Ball, DMD:
Dr. Bell graduated from Temple University School of Dentistry in 2004. He is originally from California, and moved to Pennsylvania with his wife, Amy, and his family for dental school. His family is a constant reminder of why he entered dental practice — to make a comfortable living for them while helping others in a wonderful profession that allows him substantial family time. He and his wife have seven children.
Before dental school graduation, doctors diagnosed his oldest son, Joseph, with an inoperable brain stem tumor. Through the help of classmates, church members, and friends, Dr. Bell was able to complete his dental training, graduating with honors. However, shortly after graduation, Joseph passed away. He was 7 years old.
Dr. Bell is a member of the national dental honor society, Omicron Kappa Upsilon, and trained extensively in cosmetic dentistry, endodontics, periodontics, and oral surgery techniques, as well as his general dentistry background.
Dr. Dale W. Collins, DDS:
Dr. Collins graduated from Lake Ariel High School in Lake Ariel, PA, and completed his undergraduate studies at Temple University, as well as his doctorate in dental surgery. While at Temple Dental School, he was a member of the Pedodontic and Psi Omega fraternity. After graduation, Dr. Collins served as a dentist in the United States Air Force, with the rank of captain, stationed in Laredo, Texas.
In 1968, Dr. Collins bought the practice which would become Abington Dental Arts from Dr. John Specker. At the time, it was located in the Clarks Green Medical Center.
In 1971, he, along with Dr. Vincent Coccodrilli and Dr. Stanley Goldberg, formed Abington Dental Center and moved the practice to our current location at 242 Noble Road in Clarks Summit. Though semi-retired, Dr. Collins still practices at Abington Dental Arts.
He has been a member of the Scranton District Dental Society throughout all of his years in private practice, serving as both secretary and president. He also served as secretary of the Third District Dental Society and a delegate for more than 10 years in the Pennsylvania Dental Association. He is a member of the American Dental Association. Dr. Collins also has been a fellow in the Academy of General Dentistry since 1973, having completed the rigorous guidelines and extensive continuing education requirements.
He is a member of the Clarks Green Methodist Church and has been a member of the Rotary Club of the Abingtons since 1985. Dr. Collins also volunteers with Jewish Family Services, providing free dental care to Scranton-area families in need.
He has four children, Jennifer Clark of Harrisburg and Chelsea Collins of Scranton, and Scott and Justin, both deceased. He also has two grandchildren, Aaron and Gavin.
In his spare time, Dr. Collins loves fly fishing for trout.
Dr. Amy Cravath, DMD:
Dr. Cravath received her doctorate in dental medicine from the Temple University School of Dentistry in 2008, graduating magna cum laude. During her time at Temple, Dr. Cravath was inducted into the Omicron Kappa Upsilon national dental honor society, based on scholarship, character, and clinical ability.
She also received the American Association of Endodontists Award, for her exceptional endodontic ability. She was also inducted into the Endodontology Honor Society. She is a past recipient of the Dr. Bernard Shair Memorial Scholarship from the Scranton District Dental Society and the Incentive Award Scholarship from Temple University.
She is a member of the American Dental Association, the Pennsylvania Dental Society, the Academy of General Dentistry, and the Scranton District Dental Society, where she served as president in 2013 and director of the board in 2014.
She is a 2000 graduate of Abington Heights High School. She graduated magna cum laude with an honors distinction from the University of Scranton with a bachelor’s of science degree in biochemistry with a minor in mathematics.
She is a member of Pi Mu Epsilon (National Honor Society for Mathematics), Phi Lambda Upsilon (National Honor Society for Chemistry), Beta Beta (National Honor Society for Biology), and Alpha Epsilon Delta (National Honor Society for Pre-Medical Students).
