Vanessa, Dental Hygienist

Dental hygienist Vanessa

Vanessa says that her favorite part of each day is seeing the joy on a patient’s face after she is done giving them a cleaning and they get to look at their sparkly smile. She is originally from Taylorsville and attended Weber State. Vanessa is married and has two little girls, and when she isn’t spending time with family, she likes to do pretty much anything that involves being outdoors and in the mountains, like hiking, camping, and snowboarding.


Talicia—Dental Assistant

Dental assistant Talicia

Talicia joined our team in 2021, and she says the best part of her job is that she is always learning. She gets to know our patients as well as increases her skills and knowledge in dentistry every single day! A graduate of Salt Lake Community College, she comes from a family of eight, including four brothers and one sister. When she isn’t at the dental office, you’ll usually find her playing volleyball, hiking, or relaxing with her dog, Koda. She is a big fan of warm weather, and she is currently in school learning to become a physical therapy assistant.
