Alyssa Kievit, D.M.D.

Dr. ALYSSA KIEVIT, D.M.D. attended Syracuse University where she graduated Magna Cum Laude with an Honors Distinction in Biology.  She earned her doctorate from the University of Connecticut, School of Dental Medicine.  To further her skills, she completed a general dentistry residency at Mount Sinai Hospital in Manhattan, New York.  She split her time between the Upper East Side hospital campus and Harlem satellite dental clinic.  It was this experience where she learned the importance of breaking down barriers to achieving dental health.  Many patients did not have access to routine care and came to the clinic embarrassed and feeling quite hopeless.  Dr. Kievit believes that dentistry is so much more than treating disease.  She treats the whole person and loves that her job allows her to improve health and overall happiness.


Dr. Kievit is a member of the Hartford Dental Society, the Connecticut State Dental Society, and the American Dental Association.  She is also a member of the West Hartford chapter of Spear Study Club where she works collaboratively with local general dentists and dental specialists to stay up-to-date with the ever changing field of dentistry.
