Dr. Alissa D Morris DMD MSD, Associate Orthodontist

Dr. Alissa Morris was born and raised in Tampa, Florida. She has two older brothers who live in Florida in addition to her parents. As a Floridian, she thought she wanted to be a marine biologist until she had braces in eighth grade and her career aspirations changed entirely! Dr. Morris graduated from the University of Virginia with a B.A. in Chemistry and a minor in Classics, focusing on the Latin language. She then went back to the Sunshine State and received her D.M.D. from the University of Florida College of Dentistry. Next, Dr. Morris attended the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston where she received her Specialty Certificate in Orthodontics and a Masters in Dentistry. Dr. Morris knew a career in orthodontics was the one for her when it combined many of her favorite interests—the ability to develop meaningful relationships with others, the scientific and healthcare-based nature of orthodontics, and the beauty of building up self-confidence and self-esteem for the patients under her care.

Dr. Morris enjoys the lively and diverse city of Houston and is excited to join Dr. Zane as his associate! In her free time, you can find Dr. Morris running and biking around Houston with her boyfriend, Jared, cycling on a Peloton bike, traveling, or delving into all the amazing cuisines Houston has to offer! Feel free to give her your favorite restaurant recommendations!
