Allisa is a valuable asset to the business team, joining us June 30, 2016. Allisa’s dental experience started as a young child and she eventually became a patient of Dr. Wallace’s in 2014. She was born with Anodontio, a congenital condition where individuals are born without specific permanent teeth. Dr. Wallace and his team transformed her entire smile. During those visits she built a rapport with the entire team and an interest in the field of dentistry. She comes to us with vast experience in customer service, working in retail and cosmetology. She enjoys days on the golf course, boating, spending time with family and friends, taking her dog, Buster, on walks through the park. She has lived in the community her entire life and graduated from Patrick Henry High School. Allisa is learning all aspects of the dental business.
