I feel very fortunate to work for Peterborough Family Dental and Implant Center for the past 14 years.
I enjoy helping to resolve dental related problems and answering all your questions.. I have met many great people in our practice. We share a lot of laughs and I enjoy your friendships. I hope our patients will think of us as a comfortable and happy place to be.

Hello my name is Alyce. I am one of Dr. Ainslie’s assistants. I have been a Dental Assistant for nineteen years. My current certification allows me to draw blood in the office. This allows our patients to have their own blood rich in protein plasma to be placed back in an extraction site or implant site. This helps increase healing and lessen post-op discomfort.
In my spare time I enjoy volunteering. Currently I participate in foster feline care for the Monadnock Humane Society. I was a former local volunteer Fire Fighter/EMT-1.
