Dr. Carissa has a passion for developing honest and meaningful relationships with her patients. “The majority of people do not enjoy going to the dentist. That’s no secret. It is my goal to give every person who walks in our door my utmost respect, as well as the highest quality dental treatment he/she can receive, whether it be pain relief, cosmetic change or simply a relaxing, personalized experience.”
Dr. Carissa genuinely enjoys the education side of dentistry. She considers it an important part of her job as an oral health-care provider to educate patients on how to take care of their teeth, gums, and overall health.
In her free time, you can find Dr. Carissa chasing her daughter and son around, playing golf, running, working out, listening to the Bobby Bones Show podcast, traveling or just catching up with friends and family. She and Dr. Andrew maximize their free weekends by exploring the St. Louis area, and taking road trips with the kids and their Goldendoodle to Tablerock Lake and various places around the Midwest.
