While growing up in Calgary, Dr. Alissa Sherman was inspired by her family dentist to pursue a dental career. Her love of the arts and sciences was also a perfect fit. She received a Bachelor of Science degree in Kinesiology at the University of Calgary before obtaining her Doctorate of Dental Surgery at the University of Alberta in 2008. She then went on to complete a General Practice Residency at the Foothills Hospital in Calgary as the program’s first Resident and gained further experience in the treatment of dental problems in patients with additional health concerns.
Since completing her training, she has had the pleasure of working as an associate with her family dentist, who continued to be an excellent mentor as she started her career. She has subsequently worked as an associate dentist in Airdrie. Alissa is devoted to creating a comfortable and informative experience for each of her patients. She enjoys to practice all aspects of general dentistry and continues to pursue additional learning opportunities in modern dentistry so that she can provide up to date treatment options for her patients.
Not wanting to pass up on the opportunity to join her husband while he completed part of his surgical training in Southern California, she became somewhat of a “snowbird” and joined him. They both have now returned to their home in Calgary and recently welcomed the arrival of their first child. As “Calgarians,” they look forward to raising their son in our wonderful city.
