Alexander Drew, DMD, MS

I grew up in Summit, but moved to West New Jersey where I had the privilege of raising two amazing, great kids. Once they were older, we moved back to the Summit area where we enjoy living close to family and some great friends. Besides working with Dr. Drew, I enjoy reading, quiet time, and some loud times with a large extended family crew

Lakesha Boone, Registered Dental Hygienist

Alexander Drew, DMD, MS

I completed the Dental Hygiene Program at The University of Medicine and Dentistry of NJ (Rutgers University) in 1997. My top priority as a dental hygienist is to provide a gentle and caring approach to oral health all while providing quality care. I do believe its important to connect with my patients to help eliminate the anxiety that can sometimes occur with visits to the dentist. Relaxed visits make the best appointments, especially for hygiene. Outside of the office, I love spending time with my family, traveling when we can, and enjoying amazing dinners (and wine) at our favorite restaurants.
