Becca

Dental Hygienist

I have a deep passion as being a Dental Hygienist and provider for my patients. Out of my many roles as a Dental Hygienist, my favorite part is getting to know my patients on a personal level as well as their families. My goal is to make their dental visits as comfortable as possible with the very best outcome each time.

I am a 2010 graduate of Owensville High School and a 2011 graduate of Nichols Career Center as a CDA, FFDA. I graduated in 2014 from Concord Career College in Kansas City as Registered Dental Hygienist. I have been a part of the Diamond Ridge Dentistry family since 2019.

In my free time I enjoy being home, drinking coffee, and spending time with family. My husband’s name is Cody and we have a son named Carp and a daughter named Jade.


Courtney

Courtney

Dental Hygienist

I love my role as a dental hygienist because I get to educate my patients with not only their oral health, but how it relates to their overall health, hold them accountable to their goals, and create new friendships along the way!

I graduated from Missouri Southern State University in 2015 with my associate’s degree in dental hygiene as well as my bachelors degree in health sciences. I was excited to become part of the Diamond Ridge Dentistry family this past year and feel blessed to have my coworkers in my life.

I became a momma in November 2019, so enjoying time with my husband and our sweet little Charlie Rose is my new favorite thing to do! I also enjoy everything nutrition and fitness related.

Dental Assistant

I work chairside with all three doctors as a dental assistant: taking denture and partial impressions, making retainers and nightguards, and ordering supplies. I have been working in the dental field since 1982 and started here in 1999. I really love all aspects of my job, especially the different responsibilities such as assisting in procedures. Our doctor and staff communicate really well, and Dr. Tungesvik truly cares about the staff and patients.

My husband, a bluegrass musician, and I have five children, 2 grandchildren and four cats, two dogs, and a guinea pig, too. In my free time, I enjoy reading, crafts, and keeping up with my kids.

Dental Assistant

I have been dental assisting and working at Diamond Ridge Dentistry since 2010 and work with all three doctors, to assist in all types of procedure. I especially enjoy working closely with the doctors to design crown and bridge restorations with CEREC® technology. I love how CEREC can provide patients with one-day treatment. The best part of my job is creating relationships with patients and working as a team with my coworkers to provide the best care possible.

My husband Chris and we have two children: a daughter, Haylie, and a son named Sam. I love spending as much time with them as possible and I enjoy taking advantage of my love of makeup, riding on my husband's motorcycle with him, and spending time with friends and family.
