Registered Dental Hygienist
Darlene was born and raised in the Williamsport area and is a 1981 graduate of Penn College (formerly the Williamsport Area Community College). Darlene has had the privilege of working for Ecker Family Dental for over 35 years. With patient’s whose ages range from 2 to 102, she has provided dental care for numerous fourth-generation families during her career, and literally got to watch Dr. Eric Ecker grow up and transition to the owner of practice. It is the family atmosphere from patients to team members alike that makes the office such a great fit and feel like a second home to her. Darlene’s goal is to get to know and build a relationship with each patient — to help determine their individual dental needs, put them at ease, and ensure they receive the highest level of care and the most comfortable experience possible.
When Darlene is not at the office, she enjoys spending most of her time with her husband, children, granddaughters, and large extended family. She also enjoys the beach, crafts, landscaping, playing cards, and watching a little football from time to time.
