Hey! I'm Dr. Alex and I am excited to be back in my home town of Wadsworth, OH. I graduated with my D.M.D, (Doctor of Dental Medicine) from the University of Kentucky. Although I now bleed blue, I am still a Buckeye at heart. While at UK, I served as my dental school class president for all four years and was the recipient of the American College of Dentist Outstanding Student Leader Award.
I graduated from Wadsworth High School and was president of the class of 2004. I married my high school sweetheart, Lori (Hanna) McIlvaine, who also graduated from Wadsworth in 2004. Lori and Alex have been blessed with a beautiful family consisting of daughter Josephine (10), as well as sons Porter (9) and Gale (4). I am the youngest son of Steve (Judge) and Sarah McIlvaine who also live here in Wadsworth. My older brother Jake, married to Emily (Lisle), is currently serving our country in the U.S. Navy, and they are living in Japan with their daughters, Aylin and Sylvia, and son, Lachlan.
Since moving back to Wadsworth, Lori and I have been working toward being active members of the community. I am a pround member of the Wadsworth Chamber of Commerce, a member of Wadsworth Lion’s Club (President and Past President), Chairman of the Wadsworth Salvation Army, and board member for Wadsworth YMCA. Lori and I are also the ones responsible for Wadsworth Thriller. Lori heads up the training and planning of the event, while I become Michael Jackson for one night a year!
I am passionate about providing the best care I can to my patients. I spend 100s of hours a year in continued education and that has led me to be able to provide the most advanced, conservative dentistry to everyone. I enjoy bringing all the latest technology and advancements to Wadsworth.
Hello I'm Shannon! I am a Wadsworth native who's living out my life passion through dentistry by meeting and caring for new people and helping them live a healthy lifestyle. I attended Wadsworth High School, obtained my bachelors of science at the University of Dayton and my Doctorate of Dental Surgery at The Ohio State University. While in school I was involved in multiple professional organizations and took part in dental outreach programs that greatly helped form me into the dentist I am today! Preventative care, conservative dentsitry and connecting oral health to overall health drive my ``why`` and I love to educate patients.
Personally, my husband Nick and I are loving our new parent life with our son, Miles, born in April of 2022. Nick and I met at the gym, so exercising is still a very large part of our lives. Along with staying active, we love to try new restaurants, especially with outdoor patios! We also enjoy playing with our rescue kittens, Miley and Chloe and being a part of the Wadsworth community.
