Meet Dr. Alexandra Terrazzani

Dr. Alexandra Terrazzani was born and raised in the country of Monaco. Even though her first language is French, she started learning English at an early age and is fluent in both. In addition to learning languages, she has always loved travelling and dicovering more people and their cultures. She is very active, and raced in downhill skiing for 10 years. Racing taught her at a young age to persevere through injuries, adversity, to discover herself, and what she would aspire to.

This determination took her from the French Riviera, Seattle, Los Angeles, New York, and Portland; where she currently resides with her husband, Raymond. All these experiences slowly, but surely, brought her on the path of periodontics, and prepared her to be the accomplished clinician she is today.

Dr. Alexandra Terrazzani, received her Doctorate in Dental Surgery from the University of Southern California in Los Angeles, CA. She completed a general practice hospital based residency at Jacobi Medical Center in the Bronx New York. Practicing in a large metropolitan medical center and a Level I Trauma center, she was exposed to many different patients. Dr. Terrazzani gained signifacant experience in comprehensive care, emergency medicine, oral surgery, and she treated patients with complex medical problems.

Dr. Terrazzani earned her Certificate of Advanced Education in Periodontics and Implantology from the Oregon Health & Science University in Portland, OR. She had the opportunity to treat a wider range of cases, including periodontal diseases, implant placements, cosmetic reconstructive procedures, regeneration, oral medicine, and to obtain her I.V. sedation license. While oral and I.V. sedation provide tremendous help to patients, she also believes communication to be a key factor to relieve anxiety issues patients may face. Her particular work experience at the Veteran Affairs Medical Center for a year has reinforced her skills with medically-compromised and dentally-anxious patients.

In June 2015, Dr. Terrazzani obtained her board certification as a Diplomate of the American Board of Periodontology.

In addition to her academic experiences, she likes to provide dental care to under-privileged communities. Throghout her dental education, she was volunteering at dental missions on the weekend to provide dental care to children in Los Angeles and Bakersfield. The volunteering expedition to the Philippines during her periodontal residency was the most humbling experience, as those patients could not afford any emergency dental treatments. Her team managed to treat over 500 patients with completely decayed teeth or infections in 4 days.

To this day, outdoor activities remain an important part of her life. Here in Oregon, she already had the chance to go skiing at Mt hood Meadows, hiking throughout the state, running along the Willamette, camping south of Bend, and even tried wakeboarding. She is an avid explorer of foody places in the Portland area with her husband and friends. She likes to relax with a good book or some crafty/art/photography project.  

In the end, Dr. Terrazzani wants to help her patients and educate her community to improve its dental health as much as possible. Her patients’ care is her priority. She maintains high standards and beliefs to learn and to grow both professionally and personally. As a life-long learner and problem-solver, she wants to keep improving herself for the rest of her professional career. This is why she wishes her ideal practice to encourage preventive therapy, continuous care, evidence-based dentistry, and the use of a full scope of dental treatments.
