The definition of a “routine teeth cleaning” takes on new meaning when our dental hygienist, Allison greets her patients at the door. Families and their oral health are always her highest priority. She is sensitive to dental anxieties and strives to keep cleanings comfortable and relaxing. Patients leave our office with a renewed sense of oral health attached to a brighter, more confident smile!
Allison graduated with an AAS in Dental Hygiene from Portland Community College in 2012. In addition, she regularly attends continuing education courses and teaches general oral health to Beaverton and Tigard communities. She loves working in the dental field because it gives her the opportunity to bridge the gap between dental hygiene and a person’s overall health. Her objective is in translating the practice of brushing, flossing and maintaining one’s teeth into the language of whole body wellness and vitality. “A happy mouth is a happy self” is her mantra.
When she’s not working, Allison loves traveling with her husband and two children. As an Oregon native hiking, camping or doing anything outdoors with her family and their dog is a priority. Cooking with her husband comes in at a close second followed by reading a great book and strolling through lavender fields in the summer.

Any educational tools and techniques she can provide to assist in reaching optimal oral health are very rewarding to her. If she feels extra support and encouragement is apparent, a warm and caring hug will be given at no extra cost.
