Alyssa Dawson, DDS General Dentist
Dr. Dawson graduated from Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi with a Bachelors in Biomedical Sciences and went on to complete her DDS from Texas A&M University College of Dentistry in Dallas! As a young child, her parents were unable to afford routine dental care, and most treatments were either non-existent or extremely limited. She realized in her early teens that there was a disconnect between dental education and her culture. Dr. Dawson became a dentist to give back to her community, but also to be involved in organized dentistry, and to be an active participant in making changes. Her favorite part about being a dentist is the fact that she gets to help her patients immediately. If her patient walks in with pain, she can reduce this pain on the spot and see their gratification. She truly loves working with her patients, educating them and making them feel unique.
Dr. Dawson is also an active member of her community by volunteering in her spare time to provide free dental care to those in need. Outside of making her patients happy, she enjoys working out, doing yoga and playing with her pug! She married her high school sweetheart who is also a dentist, so they love talking about their shared passion for dentistry. They also enjoy any activity that is outdoors and traveling and experiencing new things in Austin.
