I absolutely love my job! I loved it over 25 years ago on my very first day and I still love it today. What I truly love the most about being a dentist is the opportunity I have been given to transform peoples’ lives and put a genuine smile on their face. It is not really a job; it is a passion for using my God-given gifts and skills in serving our friends with what they deserve or need from the wide variety of services that we provide for our patients.
Education and Continuing Education
Life is about learning, and that is my passion! I attended the University of Iowa College of Dentistry, where I earned my Doctorate of Dental Surgery.
I strive to be on the edge of my seat to learn all I can in order to provide the best possible dental care to my patients, and ensure they may have a healthy smile to last a lifetime. Invisalign® has given me the opportunity to offer comprehensive dental care to my patients. I have found that continuing my education is the glue that holds the puzzle together in creating the healthiest possible smile for my patients.
Dr. Tungesvik is a certified Invisalign Provider and one of the nation’s top Premier Providers.
I became an Invisalign provider in 2003 and have treated over 650 patients with Invisalign since then. I have been selected as a semi-finalist in Invisalign's international case competition since it's inception in 2007 and am honored to be published in the Case Gallery Invisalign publication for these.
Dr Tungesvik is a graduate of The Kois Center.
Starting in 2012 I attended a postgraduate training center in Seattle, where I completed a series of nine in-depth courses (nearly 300 hours total) that comprehensively dealt with all aspects of oral conditions. You will be diagnosed and treated with up-to-date protocols, which are constantly being updated (via my relationship with Kois Center as new research emerges).
Our team loves having the opportunity to share in the transformation of our patients’ oral health. The staff is always eager to participate in continuing education growth, even when it is in the evening or after a full day at the office, and they love sharing that education with patients to give them teeth that will last a lifetime.
We are very professional about the dental services we provide, but our hearts are bubbling over with the joy and blessing of being involved in our patients’ care. Many of our patients become as close as family and will often stop by just to visit. Our office is our family away from home, and we invite you to become a part of it.
Outside the Office
My husband Mark is a medical oncologist and author of The Song of the Bear. We have three children. We enjoy watching them develop their talents as they continue to thrive in adulthood. We love traveling, playing golf, hiking, and biking together. We also lead small groups through our church on a weekly basis and I love spending time helping in the 4-year-old classroom on some Sundays.
I like to give back by staying involved in the local theatre, Vitae Foundation, and United Way, as well as Coyote Hill Christian Children’s Home.
