Each office, every applicant, has unique requirements. I’m so proud of how we have grown and developed throughout the years, continually implementing more resourceful ways to serve the dental community!”

Fun Fact: Alison’s first car was a 1959 Cadillac!  It was pink with wings and a lot of chrome!  “I love the adventure of traveling to new destinations and exploring their culture, museums and food, but my peace comes when returning to the calm retreat of home with my husband, horse, dogs, chickens, vegetable garden and fruit trees.”
