About Your Doctor

Dr. Alison Freeman, DMD

“I love a great smile. It is the first thing I notice when I meet someone. I consider it a gift that I can give someone the healthy, happy, confident smile of their dreams. Dentistry, through its perfect blend of science and art, has allowed me to touch the lives of many.”

Not everyone comes to see me professionally for aesthetic reasons. Many people sit in my chair and are struggling with pain in their head, neck, or jaw joint. Many people are struggling with poor sleep. Spending time helping these patients manage their pain and reclaim their lives in a non-invasive way is what brings me the truest sense of accomplishment. In this way, dentistry has provided me with a deeply personal way to connect with and help others.

My dental journey has included my undergraduate education at the University of Rochester, dental school at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine and a post-graduate residency at the AEGD at Boston University.

My husband Brandon and I lived in North Carolina for two years while he completed his MBA, and then we moved back to my home state of Massachusetts where we settled in Hanover. Over the years, Brandon’s and my family has grown to include our three daughters Mila, Maren and Macyn, and our dog Hunter. There is a real sense of energy, spunk and fun in our home and never a dull moment as we spend our spare time on soccer and softball fields, basketball courts, and with a close-knit group of friends. We adore the South Shore and truly enjoy the communities we are lucky to be a part of. Dentistry has enabled us to be a part of the communities of Hanson, Cohasset, Abington and Weymouth.

We are excited to continue to spread our “purple” presence across the South Shore as we grow our practices.
