Our Team


Becca

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. Our oldest son Carp, daughter Jade and our youngest son Knox are the center of our lives.


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.

Enjoying time with my husband and our sweet little girls Charlie Rose and Evy Jo is my new favorite thing to do! I also enjoy everything nutrition and fitness related.


Janice

Janice

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.


Lauren

Lauren

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.

I also enjoy getting to meet my patients and learning about their hobbies and adventures when they visit the office. I am honored to be a member of this team of professionals, and I am excited to work here. 

Married to my high school sweetheart, Matt and I have one son, Zachary. When away from work, spending time with family and friends is what I look forward to. During the summer months boating is one of my favorites!

I enjoy getting to know each and every on of our patients on a personal level, knowing we are providing them with the best possible dental outcomes.

I have been with this office since 2003, and I act as the liaison between the front office and the back. I am proud to be part of an office that provides the best quality of care through great service and care as well as the latest technology.
