Meet the Doctors
Proudly Serving the Community for Over 20 years
Melissa Gessling, DMD
Dr. Gessling was born in extremely rural Northeastern California. She moved to slightly-less-rural South-Central Montana as a young teen. In high school, she worked in her father’s dental office as a dental assistant and lab technician and decided to follow in his footsteps. She went to undergraduate school at Concordia College in Moorhead, a school that both her grandmother and great-grandmother attended.
After graduating, Dr. Gessling moved to Augusta, Georgia, where she continued her work as a lab technician at the dental school of Augusta University. It was there that she realized her passion for helping people and her technical skills could be combined into a great career. She graduated from the Medical College of Georgia and has been working as a general dentist since. She is passionate about life-long learning and continuously strives to learn something new in dentistry. Her passion for taking care of people comes through in all of her interactions with patients. She currently resides in Atlanta and enjoys reading, cooking, photography, and cycling.
Nida Moledina, DMD
Dr. Moledina was born in Santa Monica and grew up in Snellville, GA. After graduating from Brookwood High School, she acquired her bachelor’s degree in microbiology at UGA (Go Dawgs!) and moved onto dental school at the Dental College of Georgia in Augusta.
Dr. Moledina was the first in her family to go to college and is the older of two sisters. She married her high school sweetheart in 2022 and moved to Decatur, GA. She is an aunt to her sister’s adorable Cavapoo, Scuttle, and she loves animals, singing, trying new food, going to the gym, and being a homebody. Her favorite place in the world (so far) is Dubrovnik, Croatia, and her favorite food is macaroni and cheese. She loves being a dentist and taking care of her patients!
