Dr. Rachel B. FleisigAssociate Dentist
Dr. Fleisig grew up in Birmingham, Alabama. After years in the sweltering summer heat, she decided to see if she could survive a northern winter and moved up to Pittsburgh. She graduated from the University of Pittsburgh with a BS in economics. Four years later, she graduated from the University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine with a well-rounded dental education.

Dr. Fleisig realized the winters in Pittsburgh were not quite cold or snowy enough for her liking and decided to move even farther north. She considers herself extremely fortunate to have found such a wonderful opportunity as a member of the North East Dental Arts team!
