Allison is a graduate of Windham Technical Dental Assisting Program. She has been a part of the Griswold Dental clinical team for over eight years.
As a Treatment Coordinator, Allison looks forward to challenging herself in the dental field. She has been an integral member of the team working towards the goal of going digital—scanning and entering many radiographs into patient computer charts—a tedious yet necessary part of our transformation to go digital, and worth it, now that it is complete!
Allison looks forward to the information she shares daily with her patients, and her part in helping others achieve a beautiful smile!
During her time away from Griswold Dental Associates you may find Allison camping or traveling the North Shore of Massachusetts to visit her family cottage. If you are out and about locally on the weekend, you may even run into her mixing up some special cocktails— as a bartender!
