Meet the Team

Progressive PeriodonticsTigard, OR


Practice Manager

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.
