Dental Hygienist

Karissa is a Registered Dental Hygienist. Karissa grew up in Albany NY but moved to Binghamton in 2013. She started working with our team as an assistant in June 2016. Two years later in May of 2018 She graduated with her dental hygiene degree. Since then you can usually find her doing hygiene, but every now and then she puts her assistant hat back on. 

Her favorite part of working at valley dental pediatrics is working with her amazing team and trying to make every visit special for every kid. Karissa is starting pharmacy school in the fall or 2022 because she loves advancing her education to help others! A fun fact about Karissa is that as a child she did not have proper education and prevention when it came to dental health so she strives to educate and help as many patients as she can from an earlier age! 

When she is not at work she likes to spend time with her husband and two beautiful daughters. Karissa keeps our office fun and entertaining! We will definitely miss her but also wish her the best of luck on her next chapter!
