Registered Dental Hygienist

Alison has been a dental hygienist since 2007 and has spent most of that time practicing in Denver, Colorado. As Maine natives, Al and her husband, felt a strong pull to move back to Maine to raise their daughter. Their new residence is in Gorham and they fell in love with the community. They enjoy spending time near any water, gardening, live music and watching her daughter grow and thrive in one of the best places on earth. 

Patient education is the most important aspect of helping patients make the best choices for their systemic and oral health. Alison enjoys helping patients reach their goals and feel empowered. She believes trust and honesty is the most important part of a provider and patient relationship.


Dental Assistant

Jade grew up in a small town of Hollis, Maine. She has lived there for 20 years. Jade enjoys being outdoors, whether it’s being by her pool with her niece and nephew, going out four wheeling, fishing, or snowmobiling. Jade graduated from Bonny Eagle High School in 2020. Right after she graduated she was offered a full-time job being a dental assistant at a dental office right down the road, where she learned to assist. Root canals are her favorite!
