Dr. Alexandra K. Greco
Dr. Alexandra K. Greco was born and raised in the suburbs of Philadelphia. She attended the Agnes Irwin School and received her BA from Georgetown University where she majored in French with a pre-dental concentration. She earned her Doctor of Dental Surgery (D.D.S.) degree at Columbia University College of Dental Medicine. She then returned to Philadelphia to receive her specialty certificate in Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics from the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine.
“Dr. Alexandra” has conducted research in both dental and medical disciplines. Her favorite orthodontic projects include research on patient informed consent and the effect of estrogen on the health of the TMJ (jaw joint). Dr. Alexandra held many leadership roles as both a student and resident, including her appointment by the faculty as the sole liason to the trustees of Columbia University as student senator representing the School of Dental Medicine. She was awarded the Campbell award for student leadership while at Columbia.
While at the University of Pennsylvania, Dr. Alexandra was trained in many different forms of orthodontic therapy including traditional orthodontic correction, Invisalign treatment, 3 dimensional imaging and scanning techniques and collaboration in treatment of patients requiring complex jaw surgery. She also completed a rotation in craniofacial orthodontics at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, in which orthodontists collaborate with other medical specialists to treat patients with clefts and other genetic facial abnormalities.
When Dr. Alexandra isn’t helping patients achieve the smile they deserve, she enjoys running along the Schuylkill River Trail, cooking classic recipes from tattered family cookbooks and new wave food blogs alike and spending time with friends and family. In the summertime, her favorite place to be is on the beach at Cape May.
Dr. Alexandra is thrilled to return to her roots and join her father in practice. She shares the same emphasis on excellence and compassionate treatment that has made her father successful for more than three decades.
