Dr. Alexis Phillips is a Board Certified Pediatric Dentist. She grew up outside of Atlanta in a medical family with three younger brothers. She attended the University of Georgia, graduating Summa Cum Laude. After a great 4 years in Athens, GA, she was excited to start dental school at the Dental College of Georgia where she obtained her Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) degree. She graduated top of her class and was awarded membership into Omicron Kappa Upsilon (OKU) National Dental Honor Society.
Dr. P (what most of her patients like to call her) knew she wanted to work with children even before dental school, so it was the obvious next move to pursue a residency in pediatric dentistry. She completed two additional years of specialty training in pediatric dentistry at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital, one of the top 3 ranked children’s hospitals in the country. Residency at Cincinnati Children’s provided her with extensive training in treating the dental needs of infants, children, adolescents, and patients with special developmental or medical needs. She also gained expertise in sedation dentistry, advanced behavioral management techniques, and dental trauma.
