Tricia, Registered Dental Hygienist

Tricia graduated from dental hygiene school in 2001 and worked for a periodontist for four years, which helped her to understand the progression of periodontal disease and how best to maintain oral health. She brought her knowledge and experience to our office in 2005 and has consistently worked with the rest of our team to provide comfortable and quality dental care to our patients ever since.

Tricia enjoys discovering the individual needs of each patient and doing what it takes to achieve those needs. She continues to further her education in order to supply her patients with current and up-to-date technology in the dental field. The best part of her job, she says, is getting to know her patients and being able to put a smile on their faces.

A member of our team since 2006, Joyce received her Bachelor’s degree in dental hygiene from Oregon Health and Science University in 1990. She is dedicated to meeting the needs of our patients, and uses her experience and skills to help improve oral health. Joyce consistently provides conscientious care to each patient and has a positive outlook that makes our patients and staff love her. There are many reasons why Joyce enjoys working at the office of Dr. Sullivan, including our flexibility for emergency patients, our kind and pleasant care, and our use of the latest technology.
