DOCTOR MARISA ZITTERICH
Marisa Zitterich, DDS – Dentist in Rockwall
Originally from Forney, Dr. Zitterich has recently returned to the area after living the past four years in Houston, while attending the University of Texas School of Dentistry, where she graduated in the top of her class. While in dental school, Dr. Zitterich was very active in numerous dental and service organizations. The most notable was the American Student Dental Association, where she served in leadership positions on committees as diverse as Fundraising, Recruitment and Retention, and Community Service. Dr. Zitterich has performed missionary dentistry to the underserved here in Texas, and as far away as Nicaragua and Costa Rica. And her work garnered her the Community Service Award from the Greater Houston Dental Society.
Dr. Zitterich’s passion to serve is matched by her desire to excel. She graduated from Forney High School in the top 1% of her class, after which she attended Baylor University in Waco. There, she was on the cheerleading squad all four years, and served as captain her junior and senior years. As a freshman cheerleader, Dr. Zitterich was selected by ESPN to travel to Los Angeles and film a commercial highlighting Baylor University. Shortly after, she was picked by Sports Illustrated magazine as their College Cheerleader of the Week, with an associated interview and photographic shoot. And with all of this, Dr. Zitterich graduated from Baylor Magna Cum Laude with a major in Biology and a minor in Chemistry.
Like Dr. Fisher with his wife, Carla, Dr. Zitterich married her high school sweetheart, Kyle. Together they have two “kids”, Roxie and Baylor, their playful Boxers. When not treating patients or serving others, she enjoys outdoor activities like Camp Gladiator, running (finishing her first half marathon earlier this year!) and cycling (where she’s currently training for her first 100 mile race later this summer!).
