Alyssa Takeda, DDS
Alyssa was born and raised in Fresno, California and graduated from California State University – Fresno with a Bachelor’s of Science Degree in Biological Sciences with an emphasis of Anatomy and Physiology. Her interest in dentistry stems from her family as both her father is a dentist practicing in Fresno and her aunt is a dentist practicing in the state of Washington. Prior to attending dental school, Dr. Takeda spent time observing in her father’s practice and admired the relationship he had built with each of his patients. She also had the unique experience of serving with her father through local dental mission trips in the greater Fresno area, including her father’s hometown. Dr. Takeda attended dental school at University of the Pacific in San Francisco and graduated with honors as a member of the Tau Kappa Omega dental honor society. During dental school, she continued to provide service to those in need; she represented her class as the leader of the school’s annual dental mission trip to Fiji for two years. The first year of the mission trip, Dr. Takeda met her now-husband who is also a dentist and practices in Cupertino, CA.
After dental school, Dr. Takeda returned to Fresno to complete a rigorous General Practice Residency at Community Regional Medical Center and VA Central California Health Care System. She received special training in oral surgery, prosthodontics, endodontics, periodontics, pedodontics, and orthodontics.
Dr. Takeda holds the same values as Uyesugi Dental and is committed to dental excellence and superior patient care. She cares for her patient’s with the same consideration and attention to quality dentistry that she would herself or her family. Her goal is to make every patient feel special and to make them a partner in their oral health care treatment. She strives to build the relationships with patients that she witnessed while observing in her father’s practice. In her spare time, she enjoys hiking, learning to cook, and traveling with her husband and young son. As a resident of the San Jose area, she is learning more about her community through her involvement with the Junior League of San Jose.
Dr. Alyssa Takeda is a member of numerous prestigious dental associations, including:
