Tricia has been in the dental industry for more than 32 years. She started out as a Certified Dental Assistant in 1989, then earned her RDH license in 1996. Certified to administer local anesthesia and nitrous oxide, Tricia loves helping patients feel good about themselves. Her goal is to let every patient she treats know that she truly cares.
“My main philosophy is that I want to treat each patient as if they are my own family member. I want to ensure that they feel comfortable, safe and valued. I love enlightening our patients about their oral health and to find common ground with everyone I talk with. Making patients smile is my priority,” Tricia said.
Tricia enjoys spending time with her husband Jamie, her two sons Ryan and Riley and her daughter Rorie. They also have a sweet Porkie (Pom + Yorkie mix) named Petunia, and two awesome cats, Skye and Sunny. She also cares for her 92 year-old grandma and really just loves being outside with her entire family, cooking and traveling.
