Meet Our Team

Alyssa Kievit, DMD

Dr. Alyssa Kievit PhotoDr. Alyssa Kievit first committed to dentistry as a career path when she was in high school. “I don’t come from a line of dentists so I reached out to the dental community to foster my interest and gain insight on how to achieve this goal. At 17 years old, I made cold calls to local offices, explaining my interest, and asked if I could work as a volunteer intern. A local orthodontist hired me as an assistant and trained me on the job. I attribute this experience to what really opened the doors for me to begin my career path.”

As a native to Newtown, Connecticut, Dr. Kievit is happy to be practicing in her home state. Dr. Kievit attended Syracuse University where she graduated magna cum laude with an honors distinction in Biology. While completing her honors thesis, she became a published author for her contribution in studying jaw morphology in East African Rift Lake Cichlids. She went on to earn 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 New York City, splitting her time between the Upper East Side hospital campus and Harlem satellite dental clinic. “It was here I really learned the importance of breaking down barriers to achieving dental health. Many of my patients did not have access to routine care and came to our clinic embarrassed and feeling quite hopeless.  Dentistry is so much more than treating disease. We treat the whole person and I love that my job allows me to improve health and overall happiness.”

Dr. Kievit is passionate about staying on the forefront of the advancements in dentistry today and is frequently taking continuing education courses. She is a member of the West Hartford Spear Study Club, Hartford Dental Society, Connecticut State Dental Society, and the American Dental Association.

Outside of the office, Dr. Kievit enjoys traveling, interior design, and staying active. Dr. Kievit and her husband, Dr. Rob Kievit, have a daughter, Emily, and a golden retriever, Lucy. Together, they enjoy spending weekends hiking, exploring new local restaurants, and quality time with family and friends.

Robert Kievit, DMD

Dr. Robert Kievit“I wasn’t a stranger to the dentist when I was younger.  Every visit I seemed to have another cavity.  It was just something I came to expect.”

Born and raised in Farmington, Connecticut, Dr. Robert Kievit is excited to return to his community to hopefully change that, all too common, experience for his patients. “I didn’t realize at the time that there was something I could do to stop the progression of my dental disease. I strive to make my patients feel educated and empowered to stop the cycle”.

After graduating from Farmington High School, Dr. Kievit attended Colby College in Waterville, Maine where he graduated with honors. He returned to Farmington to earn his doctorate from the University of Connecticut School of Dental Medicine where he received graduating awards for ethics and his work with implants. It was there he learned the importance of preventative care. “I realized there are small changes that can be made which make a larger impact on both a patient’s dental and overall health. Dentistry has come a long way from even when I was younger and I enjoy embracing what technology has to offer today. Our office uses a variety of state of the art technology that increases patient comfort, minimizes time spent in the dental chair, and promotes conservative treatment”.

Dr. Kievit can often be found learning about advancements in dentistry through continuing education courses. He completed advanced training in general dentistry at the Veterans Affairs Hospital in Manhattan, New York. He is committed to being a lifelong learner and appreciates this aspect of his profession. He is a member of the West Hartford Spear Study Club, Hartford Dental Society, Connecticut State Dental Society, and the American Dental Association.

In his free time, Dr. Kievit is an avid skier and shares a love of camping and fishing with his grandfather. Together, they have traveled to remote locations like Chile, Newfoundland, Alaska, and New Brunswick. Dr. Kievit and his wife, Dr. Alyssa McIntyre Kievit, have a daughter, Emily, and a golden retriever, Lucy. Together, they enjoy spending weekends hiking, exploring new local restaurants, and quality time with family and friends.

Dr. Alyssa McIntyre Kievit first committed to the dentistry career path when she was in high school. “I don’t come from a line of dentists so I relied heavily on the dental community to foster my interest and gain insight on how to achieve this goal. I made cold calls to local offices, explaining my interest, and asked if I could work as a volunteer intern. A local orthodontist hired me as an assistant and trained me on the job. I attribute this experience to what really opened the doors for me to begin my career path.”

As a native to Newtown, Connecticut, Dr. Kievit is happy to be practicing in her home state. Dr. Kievit 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 New York City, splitting her time between the Upper East Side hospital campus and Harlem satellite dental clinic. “It was here I really learned the importance of breaking down barriers to achieving dental health.

We treat the whole person and I love that my job allows me to improve health and overall happiness.”

When not in the office, Dr. Kievit can be found volunteering with her five year old golden retriever, Lucy. “We named her Lucy because we love Lucille Ball and have spent so many evenings laughing together with her onscreen antics. Lucy has lived up to her name, she is goofy and full of personality.” In December 2017, Lucy was awarded registration with Intermountain Therapy Animals. “Lucy brings so much joy to our lives that we wanted to share that with others. We ultimately would like to work with R.E.A.D, a program designed to promote children’s literacy and communication by reading to dogs.”

Call our office today if you’re looking for a personalized approach to your dental care. We look forward to meeting you!
