Dr. Elissa grew up in a small town in New Hampshire’s vibrant Merrimack Valley. During dental school, she volunteered with Project Bridge Over Troubled Waters, providing free dental treatment to homeless youth in the Boston area. For two years, she visited Boston-area schools with the Tufts Smile Squad to educate kids about oral health and hygiene. Throughout her time at Tufts, Dr. Elissa organized an annual preventative-screening event, Tooth Day at Fenway, for all park patrons (Go Red Sox!). When she’s not taking care of little teeth, Dr. Elissa is busy traveling, soaking up the sun, and exploring her new home, Charleston.
