Paige graduated from Athens Technical College with an Associate degree of Applied Science in Dental Hygiene in May 2018. My dad owned a dental lab for 32 years so I’ve been around the dental field my whole life. With my dad’s influence and having a passion for helping others, it just made sense and felt right to become a hygienist. Paige enjoys many aspects of her career, but the best part is the relationships Paige forms with header patients. Paige wants her patients to feel comfortable, truly cared for and enjoy their visit to the dentist. Her greatest reward is being able to educate her patients and to see the improvements they have made. Paige strives to always be at her best so my patients can have the very best. Paige is so excited to be a part of Dr. Alex’s team and work alongside him and the rest of the team to give our patients the utmost care.
Paige was born and raised in Arnoldsville, GA and lived there her whole life with my parents and older brother. Paige recently moved to Comer, GA with her boyfriend, Chris, and two children, Jayden and Brenner. Paige enjoys spending time with family and friends, loving on her two Labrador retrievers, Beau and Drake, and watching Georgia football.
Arlene graduated from Macon College in 1993 and began her career as a dental assistant before completing hygiene school in 1997. That same year she joined this practice and continues to work happily alongside her husband, Dr. Alex.
Arlene enjoys spending time with family and friends, working outside, travel and running. Arlene continues to work with our patients in several capacities and has a passion for dentistry and people and is committed to helping our patients achieve their best smiles. She and Dr. Alex have three awesome children, Ashley Ann, Harrison, and Grace.
Dawn Brown graduated from Clayton State University with an Associate’s degree of Science in Dental Hygiene in 1996. She started her career in dentistry at the age of 17 as a front office/sterilization assistant. As her interest grew for dentistry, she was trained to be a chairside assistant and began dental hygiene school.
Dawn strives to provide optimal dental care while developing long-lasting, trusting relationships with her patients and the dental team.
In her free time, she enjoys time with her family and watching Georgia football.
Missy Savage graduated with her Associate of General Science from Gainesville College in 2000 and went on to get her Associate of Dental Hygiene from Athens Technical College in 2002. She worked as a dental assistant for almost 2 years prior to becoming a dental hygienist. She loves the ever changing dental technology and helping her patients stay healthy. “My patients become my family, I am fully invested in changing their lives for the better.” She prides herself on being gentle, yet thorough during a cleaning. “A comfortable patient is a happy patient.”
Missy has been a part of Dr. Alex’s team since 2013 and absolutely loves her teammates and patients. “It is the best office environment I have ever worked in. I love being in an office that genuinely cares about the patients and gives the best possible care every time.”
Outside of work Missy likes to run and be outdoors with her kids and husband. She is also an avid reader. She was raised in Barrow County and currently resides in Winder.
I graduated from the University of North Georgia with a degree in Psychology and from Gwinnett Dental Career Academy with my Dental Assisting Certification in December of 2017.
Initially I chose to study Psychology because I have a tendency to want to help others but my true passion has always been dentistry.
In the dental field, I am able to still help others with their confidence and smile, while doing the career that I love. I come to Dr. Alex’s team with two years of Orthodontic experience, so I fully understand what a transformation in a smile can do for someone’s self-assurance.
I am very excited to work with Dr. Alex and his team because they are committed to the best patient care. I look forward to providing comfort and quality care to every patient that comes in the office, alongside him and the team.
I grew up in the small town of Ila, GA. I enjoy spending time with family and friends, visiting new places, and going to UGA football games in my free time.
