Alyssa moved to New Orleans a few years ago to accompany her husband in his journey to complete his oral and maxillofacial surgery residency. She grew up in the Midwest where she got her Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology from Purdue University. She holds a special place in her heart for special needs children and adults. First a patient of Dr. Brad’s, and now an employee, Alyssa enjoys greeting our patients and their families with a bright and friendly smile when they walk through our doors and assisting them as they check-in for each appointment. She truly loves the patients she gets to meet and see them grow throughout their treatment. A smile can build confidence and change a person’s life and that is what makes this more than a job to Alyssa.
