Meet Our Team
"I graduated from the Clackamas Community College Dental Assisting Program in 2011. I have been working for Dr. Paluska and Shull Family Dentistry since 2014. My favorite thing about my job is all the wonderful relationships I get to form with all our patients and seeing the wonderful smiles we help create. In my free time, I enjoy sightseeing and exploring with my dogs and traveling the world."
"I graduated from Loma Linda University School of Dentistry with my Bachelors of Science in Dental Hygiene in 2010. I have worked for Dr. Paluska and Shull Family Dentistry since 2014. I love getting to know my patients and being able to improve their dental health. I enjoy traveling, remodeling our home with my husband, and hanging out with my dog, Harlow."
"I've been a dental hygienist for over 20 years, working in the U.S. and Switzerland. In the dental office, I most enjoy building relationships with a variety of people and sharing ideas. It is my privilege to live in the lush Willamette Valley on a vineyard with my farming husband and our 5 year old daughter. Being outside and active as well as traveling and enjoying new experiences are my favorite past times."
"I have worked for Dr. Paluska and Shull Family Dentistry for 12 years. I have been a dental assistant for 27 years. I love my job as a dental assistant. No day is ever the same. I love the feeling of helping our patients get out of dental pain or achieve the smile they've always wanted. Seeing them smile, really smile, is the best. I have adult children and grandchildren so my weeks and weekends are pretty busy with family. My family and I all love to fish and be around water. We get there as often as we can. I spend a lot of time in my yard. I love reading a good book, cooking something new, and baking."
Dental Assistant/Patient Care Coordinator
"I graduated from Portland Community College's Dental Assisting Program in 2013. I have been a dental assistant for 6 years, and been working with Dr. Paluska and Shull Family Dentistry since October 2018. I love my job and what I do pays off when I see our happy patients smiling faces. I have 3 dogs, 2 cats, 8 chickens and a pig, so in my free time I am normally taking care of my animals or spending time with husband, family and friends!"
