Our Team

Our owner, Clark W. Dennis, established Dennis Automotive and Automatic Transmission in 1975. Clark was the 2004 winner of the NAPA Technician of the Year award.

Clark’s son, Keith, is our computer diagnostic technician and manages the shop. As one of the very best technicians in the area, he frequently has other auto repair shops and dealers calling him to help diagnose problems with vehicles. Clark’s daughter, Noreen Fonte, runs the office and her husband, Mark Fonte, manages the shop with Keith.

On average, our employees have worked here for 12 years, and some for 24 years. Each one of them has a specialty. They attend classes every month, including NAPA Training, O’Reilly’s seminars, and Car Quest CTI Classes, to learn new and updated information. Most of our employees are ASE (National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence) certified and must be retested every five years to remain certified. We also have our own transmission builder on staff; he is the best in the business!
