If you’d like to learn more about her background, just keep reading below.
Why Did You Decide to Become a Dentist?
None of Dr. Lisco’s family members are in the medical field, which makes it even more amazing when you know that she’s wanted to be a dentist for as long as she can remember! In elementary school, she was once given a project to write to a company and ask about their products. While most kids were sending letters to their favorite toy company, she wrote to Crest and asked about their toothpaste; she found dentists fascinating. As she progressed through high school and college, she discovered a love of science as well, which aligned with the dental field. This path led her to shadow local dentists, volunteer at local dental charity events, and even take a trip to Central America for hands-on experience. These events were so fun and rewarding to her – it didn’t even feel like work!
Today, Dr. Lisco loves that every day brings something new and unexpected thanks to her job, as well as the excitement of giving patients new smiles. Being able to relieve someone’s pain and help them feel more confident in everyday life brings her joy, and she can’t imagine doing anything else.
Where Did You Study Dentistry?
After earning her undergraduate degree at High Point University in North Carolina, Dr. Lisco achieved her doctorate at the University of Maryland School of Dentistry, graduating Magna Cum Laude. She has also completed a General Practice Residency at the Washington DC Veterans Affairs Hospital. This training program provided valuable experience in a wide variety of dental specialties, including dental crowns, bridges, oral surgery, dentures, dental implant restorations, endodontics, oral appliances for sleep apnea therapy, and caring for medically complex/compromised patients. She is currently a proud member of the American Dental Association and the Maryland State Dental Association.
Outside of the Dental Office, What Do You Like to Do?
Dr. Lisco originally hails from the Baldwin area, but currently lives in Washington, DC with her husband, Connor. They plan to make Annapolis their home in the upcoming year, but are enjoying being tourists in their own city for the time being! Her older sister lives close by in Northern Virginia, while her parents still reside in Baldwin. When together, they all love watching sports games and “going down the ocean!”
As for personal hobbies, Dr. Lisco enjoys traveling and exploring new cities, checking out local restaurants, taking barre classes at the gym, and cheering on the Ravens. She also LOVES to bake and is constantly trying out new recipes to share with loved ones. If she couldn’t be a dentist, her next choice would be opening her very own bakery!
