Seattle Orthodontist

Meet Dr. Alissa Borda

Orthodontist in Seattle and Bellevue

Dr. Alissa Borda is a Board Certified orthodontic specialist who was born and raised in the Seattle area. She completed her undergraduate education at Seattle University competing in cross-country and track. Dr. Borda attended the Arizona School of Dentistry and Oral Health where she earned a Doctorate in Dental Medicine and a Master’s in Public Health. After graduation she returned to Seattle to complete an advanced General Practice Residency at the Greater Puget Sound Veteran’s Affairs Hospital and practiced general dentistry for several years. While she enjoyed restorative dentistry, Dr. Borda decided to focus her career in orthodontics, loving the positive effect she can impart on her patients’ lives. She attended the Oregon Health and Science University for her orthodontic residency and earned a Master’s in Science. After eating her way through the Portland food scene, she returned home to Seattle and began working at LVO. Dr. Borda is still an avid runner and enjoys spending her weekends exploring the PNW with her husband (Travis) and Siberian Husky dog (Luna).
