DR. NASIM ALEAGHA (DR. A)

The responsibility of creating and maintaining healthy smiles for children is an honor and one that is a great source of my joy!

My name is Nasim Aleagha and I am a board-certified pediatric dentist. I was born and raised in central New Jersey to extremely hard working parents. From a young age, they instilled in me a great work ethic and set a very high standard for educational excellence. Growing up, my life was filled with extracurricular activities including girl scouts, orchestra (I play the violin!), soccer, student government and local volunteering all while managing a demanding academic curriculum.  After high school, I completed my undergraduate education at Rutgers University, The State University of New Jersey in 2002, receiving a Bachelor Degree in Genetics/Microbiology.  While contemplating a career path, I worked in a general dentist office where I had the opportunity to experience all aspects of working in a dental practice from the ground up!  From this experience, I knew dentistry was my field of interest but it wasn’t until my third year at Columbia University College of Dental Medicine in the City of New York that I realized my passion for treating children and graduated in 2007 with honors in pediatric dentistry. I continued my training at the renowned residency program at The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio where I received a specialty certificate in pediatric dentistry in 2009.  I then moved to the Dallas area and treated children in a rural area for five years while perfecting my skills as a pediatric dentist. After yearning to be closer to my parents, who retired back to Bozeman in 2012, I finally made the move to Montana in 2015! I joined an office in Missoula where I practiced for a year and then worked for the next year at Gallatin Valley Pediatric Dentistry before deciding to start my own practice in beautiful Bozeman! I am thrilled to provide my services for the children and families of the Gallatin Valley and beyond and feel a deep responsibility to do so as a member of this community that I so whole-heartedly believe in! I look forward to meeting you and help create lifelong smiles!

Some things that make me smile:
  • “High Fives” and secret handshakes
  • Overhearing patients leaving the office saying “but I don’t want to go yet…”
  • Enjoying all things outdoors, especially hiking with my best bud, my Doberman Pinscher “Jersey”
  • Cooking and entertaining with family and friends

I am an active Board Certified member of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, the American Dental Association and Montana Dental Association.

JONI
Dental Assistant- RHS CERTIFIED

I was born and raised in Bozeman and remember it from its tiny town days. I rode my horse down Babcock when it was a dirt road! I moved away and lived in Africa when I was a teen and then later on as an adult. While teaching in Africa as an adult I viewed many fascinating animals and wildlife. An interesting fact about myself is that  I have done dental work on baboons!  I lived in Texas for many years, where I taught kindergarten, before moving back to Montana—my home. I have worked in pediatric dentistry for over 7 years, and get excited about all the sweet kids I get to meet here at the office.

HANNAH
Front Desk/ Scheduling Coordinator

I grew up in a farmhouse on five wet acres with a pond and woods in Bellingham, WA in the foothills of the North Cascades. I was a wild child and loved playing outside. When I was ten, my family moved to California, and then after three years in the land of 100 degrees, In-N-Out and the Beach Boys, we moved to the Big Sky Country. When I decided to go to college, I moved from my parent’s home in Billings, MT to our beautiful Bozeman. I lived here off and on through college, and then, through having braces myself as an adult, I found my way into Bozeman’s dental world.

Things that make me smile:

Peak bagging in our beloved Montana mountains with my husband, Ben and our dog, Rook, seeing as much of the world as I can, flower arranging, and writing and illustrating books, and Constant Comment Tea.

There is nothing better than making a child feel happy and loved. In my free time I love spending time outdoors with my son Cooper and husband Steve. I love to travel and visit new places and one day I hope to travel to Bora Bora. Some of my favorite places I have traveled so far have been Hawaii, Mexico, Coeur de Lane, Seattle and Vegas which I frequent often. I am so excited to meet all the adorable patients and make their experience special with lots of smiles.
