Hello and thank you for choosing Dakota Pediatric Dentistry! I am Allison, the Business Manager for the company and I help to oversee both our Fargo and Grand Fork’s practices. I started as the office manager at the Fargo location in 2012 after graduating from MSUM with a degree in Communication Studies, and in 2017 transitioned into the Business Manager. I love coming to work every day and couldn’t say more positive things about our owner’s Dr. Chad and Dr. Mikala. I am truly blessed to call this my “job” and look forward to coming to work each and every day. When I’m at home I enjoy spending time with my family, my fur family, travelling, and working out. I can’t wait to meet you!
Hi! I am the Fargo office manager for Dr. Chad and Dr. Mikala. I am one of the smiling faces you will see when you first come into our office. I was born and raised in Fargo, ND and graduated from M State Moorhead with an associate's degree in practical nursing. After working as a nurse for 5 years, I decided to make a career change to the pediatric dentistry field. I thoroughly love working with kids and I enjoy making their visits to our practice a positive and rewarding experience. When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my husband Devin and our young son Henley, going to the lakes, and cheering on the Seattle Seahawks!

The environment at Dakota Pediatric Dentistry is energetic and enjoyable. Outside of work, I love spending time with my husband Jordan, exercising, traveling, and watching football.

I am a Fargo native and received my Bachelor’s degree from NDSU in Apparel and Textiles with a minor in Interior Design. I have worked in the customer service/retail industry for 17 years and what I most enjoyed was the interactions I have had with customers. I made the switch to pediatric dentistry because I absolutely love kids and being able to interact with and get to know the families, all while making their experience a positive one. I really enjoy our team at Dakota Pediatric and our fun and friendly atmosphere. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my husband Pete, our son Reece, and our puppy Bentley. I also enjoy fashion, ballet, sewing, traveling and DIY.
