When she’s not performing routine cleanings or educating patients, hygienist Allison Manicdao is dancing with her competitive hip hop team. “I’ve been dancing since I was 10,” she says, “and I really love being a team player.”

Growing up on Long Island, she wasn’t a big fan of going to the dentist: “I remember crying and screaming a lot. I was that kid,” she says. “But after I got braces, I started to see what a difference it could make. I realized how dentistry and good oral hygiene could help bring people confidence, and I wanted to help people like that.”

And for Allison, the first step is getting to know you. “We’re all human, and we all have things we’re comfortable or uncomfortable with,” she says. “So I try to treat everyone like a friend. You can tell me about your concerns and I’ll be there with you every step of the way.”
