Alissa— Scheduling Coordinator
Originally from Boston, Mass. I moved to Syracuse with my Husband in 2011. I graduated from the Liverpool BOCES Dental Assisting program in 2015. Upon completing my internship in Liverpool, I was offered the position and my dental assisting career began. During my time there I trained with Nitrous Oxide and IV Sedation monitoring.
In 2016, I accepted a position with a general dentist closer to my home in Fayetteville. At this fast-paced office, I was trained in the latest digital dental technology.
February 2018, I took a brief hiatus from the dental world to pursue training to become a Certified Yoga instructor. This led me to Puerto Rico and Costa Rica, something I had worked towards for 11 years.
Upon my return, I was hired here at Specialized Dentistry for the front office, although you may find me in the back helping our clinical team. I am always eager to learn and working here gives lots of opportunities to do so.
In my free time, I enjoy practicing and teaching yoga as well as spending as much time outside in nature with family and friends & my dogs. I also enjoy hiking, camping and traveling when I can.
