It was during this time that Dr. Fortanasce knew that he wanted to pursue pediatric dentistry and also when he was awarded the Penn Dental Medicine Community Dentistry and Pediatric Dental Health Award.

Outside of the office, Dr. Fortanasce enjoys being outdoors, running, boxing, rooting for his Villanova Wildcats, and staying up-to-date on the latest Disney movies, with his favorite movie being “Hercules”.
