Meet Dr. Katie Alger
DICE is owned and operated by Dr. Katie Alger, a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania and Columbia University. After completing a residency and implant fellowship at Northwell Health on Long Island, she brought her talents back to Pennsylvania where she’s called home for the last two years.
Dr. Katie loves to meet new patients and design a plan to help them restore their smiles, chewing ability, and confidence. Since her mom is phobic of the dentist, Dr. Katie understands the importance of patiently listening to all of her patients’ hopes, concerns, and fears. After completing a hospital-based residency/fellowship at a Level 1 trauma center, performing dentistry in a nursing home, and treating special needs patients, Dr. Katie enjoys rising to the challenge of helping with anything her patients require (there’s no need to ever feel embarrassed in her chair; she’s seen it all!)
Outside of the office
When Katie isn’t thinking about teeth, she can be found spending time outdoors and spending time with family and friends. Her favorite activities include cooking, waterskiing, swing dancing, and hiking.
More than just a job
Coming from a long line of engineers, Dr. Katie inherited the “tinkering” gene. She doesn’t just come to the office to do her job; she also often stays late playing with her latest piece of technology. She has a conebeam xray unit that helps her fully evaluate her patients’ teeth and surrounding tissues, a 3D printer, digital impression capabilities (no more goop!), and soon hopes to invest in her own milling machine. You can often find her exploring her artistic side as she designs her patients’ new smiles on her computer-based design programs. Come to the office today to figure out why she finds the latest technological advances in dentistry so intriguing! She’d be more than happy to show you how digital dentistry can transform your dental experience.
