Our Team

Meet The Team




Elyce joined our team in 2005 as Dr. Thanik’s surgical dental assistant. Over time, she has had the opportunity to experience diverse roles within the practice. This has allowed her to gain a comprehensive knowledge base to share with and educate the patients we treat. She enjoys coming to work every day and always has our patient’s best interests in mind. She balances her high quality of care with levity by knowing when to have fun at work. Working side-by-side with Dr. Thanik has enabled Elyce to learn from his experience and allows her to view how much he cares about each patient he sees.

Elyce loves living in Portland and taking advantage of all the wonderful activities the Pacific North West has to offer.




Ashlee is our talented dental hygienist. She truly enjoys her job and enjoys coming to work each day. It’s a privilege to work alongside a team that finds pride in what they do and how they care for their patients.

Ashlee likes to spend her spare time with family, friends, and the outdoors. She is also an avid golfer who enjoys spending time on the course when the weather allows.




Suzie has been working in healthcare since 2016. She loves working with such a strong and knowledgeable team at Progressive Periodontics.

Suzie was born and raised in Oregon. Her favorite thing to do is make memories with her family. She is her daughter's #1 fan!
