After graduating from the U, Dr. Alesia advanced to the Kornberg School of Dentistry in Philadelphia, a part of Temple University Health Systems. In addition to her coursework in Philadelphia, Dr. Alesia went outside the country sharing her passion and purpose at orphanages in Lima, Peru and Ensenada, Mexico. There she set up and operated fully functioning portable dental clinics and provided comprehensive dental care to children and families. She stayed in Philadelphia for her residency at Temple University Hospital. At Temple, Dr. Alesia trained extensively in oral conscious sedation. She presented her research on the efficiency of isolite with sealant placements at the 2019 American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry Annual Meeting in Chicago.
Now happy to be back close to her family, Dr. Alesia is enjoying doing the many things she loves about her hometown like running the trails at Lake Scranton and exploring new recipes with veggies from her garden. She also loves climbing the leaderboard on her Peloton, walking her dogs Nala and Simba (can you feel the dog love?), and patiently waiting for new T. Swift drops and tour dates. (She’s seen her three times.) At the end of the day, she’s not afraid to re-read Harry Potter, hoping to find some secret Hermione spell to cure cavities, or, at least children’s irrational fear of the dentist.
