Kimi - Registered Dental Hygienist
Hi everyone, my name is Kimi and I can’t wait to meet you! I joined Dr. Tuck in November 2021 after working throughout the Bay Area as a Dental Hygienist for 6 years. I found my love for helping others and dentistry at a young age, for my mom was a hygienist for over 50 years. Growing up, going to the dentist and having my teeth cleaned was always a relaxing and positive experience. I hope to do the same for you, as I am committed to making your visit as fun and comfortable as possible.
During hygiene visits, I encourage patients to ask as many questions as they’d like. This allows me to personalize treatment and enable patients to be involved with the health of their gums and teeth.
After growing up in the Bay Area, I moved to Baltimore, MD to get my BS in Psychology and played Division I volleyball on a full athletic scholarship. I then moved to NYC and held positions in medical research, the restaurant industry, and in surgery while getting my Post Bacc certificate at New York University. After finally coming home to sunny California, I graduated from Dental Hygiene School in 2015.
Outside of the office, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. While cooking is fun, I enjoy eating so much more. I love the outdoors, so hiking and camping across the U.S. with my two rescue dogs is one of my favorite activities. If I’m not hanging out with my dogs on the trailhead or surfing at the beach, you may find me vacationing overseas somewhere!
Jacqueline- Registered Dental Assistant
I have been in the dental field since 2003. What I enjoy about working is being able to help people and the satisfaction when that person can be more confident in their smile. Outside the office my two boys keep me pretty busy with their extracurricular activities. I enjoy running, hiking, and anything outdoors. I also enjoy working out with my fitness group, as well taking salsa classes.
