Kimberlee - Registered dental hygienist
Kimi joined Dr. Tuck’s office in November 2021 after working throughout the Bay Area as a Dental Hygienist for over 6 years. She found my love for helping others and dentistry at a young age, for her mom was a hygienist for over 50 years. Growing up, going to the dentist, and having her teeth cleaned was always a relaxing and positive experience. She hopes to do the same for you, as she is committed to making your visit as fun and comfortable as possible.
During hygiene visits, she encourages patients to ask as many questions as they’d like. This allows her to personalize treatment and enable patients to be involved with the health of their gums and teeth. After growing up in the Bay Area, she moved to Baltimore, MD to get her BS in Psychology and played Division I volleyball on a full athletic scholarship. She then moved to NYC and held positions in medical research, the restaurant industry, and surgery while getting her Post Bacc certificate at New York University. After finally coming home to sunny California, she graduated from Dental Hygiene School in 2015.
Outside of the office, she enjoys spending time with her family and friends. While cooking is fun, she enjoys eating so much more. She loves the outdoors, so hiking and camping across the U.S. with her two rescue dogs is one of her favorite activities. If she is not hanging out with her dogs on the trailhead or surfing at the beach, you may find her vacationing overseas somewhere!
