In years 2009-2010 Alex attended the Denturist Program at Bates Technical
College in Tacoma, Wa. She graduated in 2010 and received the Associate
of Technology Degree. After passing the Washington State Board of Denturists
exam she became a licensed denturist.
The next step was to put the skills and knowledge to the service
for the community of Mason County - that is what inspired the conception
of the New Smile Denture Clinic where Alex works with the patients and also
does all her lab work.
Since the year 2011 Alex is a member of the National Denturist Association.

together making removable dental prostheses
for the patients of several dental providers,
mainly in Mason County, but also in other areas.
