Alyson K. Amerson, DDS, MPH

Welcome to my practice! I've handpicked every member of my team to serve you and your family well. I look forward to meeting you and getting to know you at your first visit.

Here's some information about me…

I was born and raised in Trotwood, Ohio, and I attended Wright State University in Fairborn. There, I earned my bachelor's degree in accounting and finance – back in 1998. I decided to enter dental school and finished my DDS at The Ohio State University, College of Dentistry, in 2004. Dental school allowed me the opportunity to explore many aspects of the profession, including pedodontics (working with children) and geriatrics (working with senior citizens). My commitment to education is ongoing. I take many CEs every year because dentistry constantly evolves, clinically and technologically. I earned my master's degree in public health from Benedictine University.

After graduation, I learned some invaluable skills and had a wonderful experience as a resident at Veteran's Administration in Dayton. During my residency, I worked with minor to complex dental cases and developed an interest in public health dentistry. Shortly thereafter, I moved to Lima and began working at Allen County Health Partners, where I stayed on staff until 2007.

I went into private practice, Burns Dental, in 2007 and have thoroughly enjoyed becoming a part of this community. The dear people who are my patients give me so many reasons to smile! I also like supporting local youth groups and community events.
