 Dr. Alice Charland Bassford, D.M.D., M.A.G.D.

A New England-er, born and raised in Western Massachusetts, I graduated from Siena College in 1989 with a BS in Biology and from The University of Connecticut School of Dental Medicine in 1992. A 10 year veteran of the US Army having completed a 1 year residency in Advanced General Dentistry. After a tour in Germany, I was stationed at Walter Reed Army Medical Center. I remained in Silver Spring after being honorably discharged from the Army. I completed both Fellowship and Mastership in the Academy of General Dentistry.
I purchased Dr Guy's practice when he retired in November 2006. I have three children: Andrew (20), Simon (18) and Emily (16). I have a beagle-dachshund Daisy who is a full time greeter in the practice, she has a better wardrobe than the rest of us! When I am not at the office or driving my children to events, I like to garden, kayak and use my pink golf clubs!



Rescued from retirement, Beverly comes with years of experience in the Federal Government at Walter Reed Army Medical Center Hospital Dental Clinic. Beverly is both an assistant and a lab technician. She is extremely personable on the phone and is sure to give you a hug during your visit. She is an outstanding dancer and has been known to out dance a local belly dancer.

Originally from St Croix, Judy, our island girl, worked as a dental assistant on Monday nights for Dr Stutzman (now Dr Bassford) when she first moved to the area.  She furthered her education by obtaining her dental hygiene degree.  Years later she joins our staff.  An outstanding dental hygienist by day and an alleged Wednesday night Zumba regular! Judy and her husband have a daughter who just started kindergarten.  We are entertained almost daily with Amanda stories! 



Ms. J had an interesting path to our team. Years ago she worked with Dr. Guy (previous dentist), then was a patient of Dr. Stutzman (now Bassford), and decided she liked us so much she wanted to join the team! Karen brings with her a vast aray of talents and expertise and is a joy to have around the office everyday!




She is our official greeter!  As she has progressed in years(13), Daisy spends more time sleeping and lesstime greeting.  She has a great nose for food which will awaken her from a deep sleep.  She has been known to put her nose into a coat pocket or two or a purse in pursuit of a treat!  Daisy has many outfits and tries to coordinate with the rest of the staff!
