About Your Dentist

Alyssa Phinney, DMD

The Dental Prayer:

Lord, be with me daily as I practice Dentistry.
May I treat with gentle hands all who put their trust in me.
May my calm assurance help to erase their fears.
To relax the tense adults and dry the child’s tears.
May I treat each patient with competence and skill.
Whether a difficult procedure or a tooth that I must fill.
And reward me with my patient’s lovely, healthy smile!

My Mission

“To help and serve as many people in need as possible. My favorite part of dentistry is the patient interaction. I want to be very involved in my community, not just as a dentist, but as a friend to my patients.”
