Dr. Rio Alesna - Orthodontist
Please Welcome Dr. Rio Alesna, Diamond Braces Orthodontist!
We're so glad to have Dr. Alesna on our team; she's an amazing orthodontist and part of what makes Diamond Braces so great!
Dr. Alesna was born in the Philippines, but moved to New York at a young age. She completed her undergraduate education at Binghamton University and Rutgers University for dental medicine. She first became a pediatric dentist with a residency at Montefiore Medical Center, and spent several years as a pediatric dentist in private practice.
As a pediatrician, she worked closely with orthodontists, and eventually decided she wanted to continue her education to pursue orthodontics as her own career! She went back to school at Seton Hall University for an orthodontics residency. She loves the combination of artistry and science that orthodontics calls for; as an artistic person, and a scientist, it is truly a perfect combination for her. Plus, she gets to help people every day.
Dr. Alesna and her husband love to travel and try new restaurants. They recently adventured to the Grand Cayman Islands – but nothing beats their amazing vacation to Greece, where they explored Santorini and Athens. She is truly a world-traveler!
Thanks for sharing your story, Dr. Alesna – we’re so glad you’re a part of the Diamond Braces team!
