Allison

Dental Hygienist

I attended the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, Minnesota and Northern Illinois University in Dekalb, Illinois. I then graduated from the dental hygiene program offered at Westmoreland County Community College in Youngwood, Pennsylvania. Here at our office, I offer patients quality dental care by providing gentle cleanings, radiographs, periodontal maintenance procedures, sealant application, and whitening procedures. My favorite part of my job is meeting new people and creating lasting relationships as a health professional. It’s very gratifying helping someone achieve the smile they’ve always wanted.

I recently moved from the Chicago area to Pittsburgh. I love anything outside including: running, slow-pitch softball, kayaking, fishing, and camping. I am an avid scrapbooker and love to bake and cook. I’m also interested in volunteering in the Pittsburgh area and abroad.

Natalie

Office Manager

Welcome to our office! I am here to oversee our doctor and staff, handle collections and billing, maintain the flow of the office, and ensure a happy atmosphere for all co-workers and patients. My favorite part of my job is helping patients, whether it is getting them out of pain, providing cosmetic treatment, or assisting in making this office a place they want to come back to. I love my co-workers and the environment we have here.  We all really get along and have the same goal to make this a great office for our patients.

I have an awesome, loving husband named John, and a stepson who is a fantastic artist and all around perfect kid named Dylan. Last but not least is my baby girl, Chloe, my Pomeranian Princess! I love to exercise, read, and I am obsessed with some of the fantastic TV series that are on right now. My favorite time is spending it with my husband, stepson, and Chloe.

Sharon

Patient Care Receptionist

I have been a part of Dr. Peterson’s team since 1997, joining after spending 11 years working with an oral surgeon. I am the first face you see in the office the official greeter of Dr. Peterson’s office. I also take care of all front office duties, including scheduling appointments, answering phones, and checking insurance coverage. Dr. Peterson and our team are dedicated, always happy, and fun to work with. We are like a little family which makes it always fun to come to work.

I have been collecting artist dolls since 1990. All the patients know about my passion of being a long-time doll collector. I have porcelain, vinyl, wood, cloth, and resin. I could not tell you which one or kind I like best; they all tell such a special story.

Theresa

Dental Hygienist

As one of Dr. Peterson’s dental hygienists, I am here to educate and encourage patients in their pursuit of ideal oral and systemic health. I have more than 30 years of experience in dentistry and became a part of this great team in 2014. My coworkers are such a helpful group, and we all treat our patients’ like they’re our top priority.

When I’m not in the office, I like to read and bake.
