Alicia joined our team in 2013, after receiving her diploma from the Porter and Chester Institute. One of her many contributions to the practice is making sure our patient rooms and instruments are impeccably clean and sterile. “That’s important, of course,” she says. “But so is making sure our patients are comfortable. And I enjoy seeing that they are.”

She also recognizes the importance of supporting both the doctors and patients in treatment plans. “I strive to make sure each patient completely understands what is being said and recommended.”

Alicia appreciates the benefits of what she calls our “team effort.” As she puts it: “We’re a friendly group with the best interest of our patients Priority #1. Their trust and confidence in us is taken very seriously.”

After office hours, Alicia appreciates the time she spends with family and friends. She also loves designing and making clothes.
