Administrative Team

Stephanie DeForno

Clinical Administrator/Office Manager

Hello, my name is Stephanie.  I joined the Thorndale Dental Team in August 2007 as the Financial Coordinator.  In 2010 I took on the responsibility as the Clinical Administrator/Office Manager.  The dental field is a great occupation.  Coming to work each day is so rewarding when you are able to help transform a patient’s smile.  Everyone deserves the best of oral health.
I am married to Dr. Rich and we have four wonderful children between us.  My daughter is starting her own business/product line within the fashion/beauty industry.  My son is currently enrolled in college, majoring in Film Production.  He also takes flying lessons at our local airport and races motocross. 
In my spare time I relax with my family, two Great Danes, tending to our chickens, cooking, gardening, and traveling.  I also enjoy skiing most of the winter.  I look forward to seeing you at your next dental visit.


Maryann Ammon

Accounts Payable/Bookkeeper

Before joining Thorndale Dental in February 2016, I had over 25 years of bookkeeping experience within the HVAC industry.  It has been a pleasure and privilege to work in an environment where both personal and professional excellence is the standard. 
Originally from Delaware County, my husband and I moved to Glenmoore, Chester County in 1991 and we have four grown children.  When I am not “crunching numbers”, I look forward to spending time with family.  I also enjoy gardening, cooking, antiquing, road trips as well as attending concerts and plays.

Kathy Kyle

Patient Concierge

Hi! My name is Kathy.   
Growing up in a military family I was fortunate to live all over the United States.   I spent two years in South Korea which sparked an early fascination with traveling and exploring different cultures.  I graduated from Penn State University with a B.S. in Management and International Business along with a minor in Spanish.  That led me to a semester living and working in Sevilla, Spain. My professional experience spans to and from retirement plans, interior design and property management industries. Most recently, I was the Curator for a fine art gallery and online home décor boutique. I was also a consultant for a non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation of the feral Nokota® horse. 
I look forward to getting to know you at your next appointment!
