ABOUT YOUR PROVIDER
Tommie was born and raised right here in Southern Oregon. Her interest in the Dental field grew after traveling with the military and watching close friends enter the field. She started to read their textbooks and was instantly intrigued! She began her career in 2003 and entered into Dental Assisting school in Chesapeake, Virginia.
After moving back home and growing as a Dental Assistant she knew that everything she had learned was just a stepping stone to even more that the dental field had to offer. She then moved to Gresham, Oregon and attended Mt. Hood Community College to pursue higher education as a Dental Hygienist. She graduated with honors as class president in 2011.
As a fearful dental patient herself, it has been Tommie’s dream to provide care to others that is comfortable, compassionate and exceeds their expectations to help eliminate their long held fears about dental visits. Her favorite part of being a hygienist is building long lasting patient relationships with the entire family... her patients become family.
Tommie is currently a mom to three young boys and has an amazing husband that always keeps her grounded. Family is vital to her. She enjoys camping, going to the gym, spending time with her boys and volunteering.
