Marissa joined the Little Fish Dental team in 2013 as a front office assistant. Over the years she has taken on many different roles in the office such as marketing and assisting. In 2017, she reached her goal of becoming an RDA. She enjoys working with this connected team that loves to learn and strives to give their patients the best experience possible.
Marissa truly enjoys working through the challenges of dentistry; she finds it rewarding and fun. She is very grateful to work for a doctor that believes in furthering her staff’s education and providing her patients with overall health dentistry. She loves being a part of the office’s incredible growth over the years and knows the team will always strive to give their patients exactly the help they need and want.
In her spare time Marissa loves to kayak, travel, and spoils her precious Great Dane, Sage. She is looking forward to her wedding with her long-time love, Matt, in October of 2020.
Melissa has been an RDA since 1996 and loves that she has been able to work with kids for her whole career. Working with kids is both “rewarding and challenging” but she truly enjoys it. Kids love Melissa and she has had many patients draw or color pictures and bring them to her at their appointment because she is their friend at the dentist!
Melissa has worked at Little Fish Dental since 2012. She feels grateful to be part of a team whose collective goal is to make the patient’s experience in the dental office enjoyable and comfortable. She believes that one of the team’s strengths is their focus on holistic dental care and wellness – treating the whole patient, not just the symptom. Melissa loves learning new skills and being in an innovative office.
In her free time, Melissa loves to spoil her Yorkshire terrier Trixie. Melissa also enjoys hiking, kayaking, and spending time with friends and family.
