Meet Our Team

Welcome To Our Practice

 

Our goal is to partner with you to achieve your optimum dental health. Recognizing that comfort, appearance, and long-range economy are of prime importance, the treatment that is recommended for you is based on what Dr. Hollinsworth would recommend for her own family considering your wants and needs.

Our caring and upbeat staff want to make your time with us as pleasant as possible. You will always be treated as a guest when visiting us, and we offer amenities such as blankets and pillows to make you comfortable.You can bring in your own iPod or phone to play your music,too! If you are highly anxious, we offer nitrous oxide or "laughing gas" with a stuffed animal to hold if you like.

We will always strive to inform you about your dental health and current needs so that you are comfortable with your treatment . If at any time you have questions or suggestions, please do not hesitate to talk to any of us. We always welcome the opportunity to more fully meet your needs and to deserve the trust of those who refer new patients to us, for that is the nicest compliment we could ever receive.

Establishing a rewarding and lasting relationship with you is vitally important to us. We pledge excellence in all we do, and we look forward to helping you make the most of your smile now and for all the years to come.

Dr. Sue Hollinsworth

Dr. Hollinsworth was among the first female dental graduates of the University of Washington School of Dentistry. She opened her family and cosmetic dental practice on the Kent East Hill in 1978 and cherishes the long term relationships and community ties she has developed over the years.

"My goal from the beginning has been to overcome people's fears and negative images of dentistry. My greatest satisfaction comes from helping people get healthier and feel good about their smile! "

Dr. Hollinsworth has been actively involved in the dental profession, both at the local and state level.

She volunteers her services in many different capacities, helping those who cannot afford dental care as well as mentoring students.She is an affiliate professor with the UW School of Dentistry,  serves on the Dean's Club board , and has endowed a scholarship to financially help a dental student.

In recognition of her leadership and service, she has received fellowship in the following honor societies: Pierre Fauchard, International College of Dentists, and  American College of Dentists, where she serves as chair of the Washington-Alaska section.

Dr. Hollinsworth is equally dedicated to community service and has spent many volunteer hours. She currently serves on the board of directors for Children's Therapy Center and she and her husband are active members of Kent United Methodist Church.

Her office has an ongoing "make a difference day" project of collecting toiletries and dental hygiene supplies for the homeless and the Kent Food Bank. Over the years, she has participated in M.S. walks, CROP Hunger Walk, and the Kent Relay For Life Cancer Walk, where her team,"Mouthing Off Against Cancer", emphasizes oral cancer detection. She also has participated with and supports the Genesis Project , the Oral Cancer Foundation, and Kent HOPE.

Hi, I'm Becky, your dental hygienist. I enjoy helping people achieve healthy smiles even after 30 years in the dental field. Most of my family are dentists or dental hygienists, so I grew up in the profession and received my degree from Yakima Valley Community College.  Learning new things is exciting to me and I love providing information to my patients, too! At home, I like to spend time with my husband, children, extended family and especially my little grandson.When I get time to myself, I like to do needlepoint and sudoku!
