Dr. Alexandra Bassett
Dr. Alexandra Bassett has always been an artist at heart, earning a visual arts degree in college before deciding to become a dentist. “An artist’s life is filled with long nights in the studio, and I am just too extroverted for that,” she says. “Dentistry is an opportunity to relate to everyone you meet, and that’s a very special opportunity to me.”
After college, Dr. Bassett attended Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in Boston and has completed hundreds of hours of supplementary education since she graduated. “We truly live in the Golden Age of dentistry – treatment is quicker, more precise, and less painful than it’s ever been. Providing the most efficient and affordable treatment has always been a priority for my patients, and having my own practice to offer this is a dream come true.” But her driving goal, beyond being an accomplished and high-quality dentist, is to create a trusting relationship with each of her patients.
“Simplicity is the key to a happy life, and I also think it’s the key to good dental treatment. If you keep it simple, the important things become clear.”
Dr. Bassett has always placed significance in helping others, as she spent a year after college as a Phoenix AmeriCorps Urban Fellow at a charter school in Chelsea, Massachusetts to help former high school dropouts earn their high school diplomas. In her free time, Dr. Bassett enjoys skiing, hiking, or spending time around a campfire.
