Victoria (DeeDee) Rodriguez - Registered Dental Assistant

Hi, my name is DeeDee As the newest team member, I have been with Dr. Sudick’s office since April 2014. I have been a Registered Dental Assistant for over 24 years and have lived in Whittier since 1989. One thing I enjoy most about my job, aside from a 3 mile commute, is helping to guide patients to overcome their fear of the dentist. It is also rewarding interacting with people and hearing that being in the dental chair can be a positive experience. Prior to moving to Whittier, I completed my Registered Dental Assistant license, X-ray certification, Coronal Polish certification and became a 3D Imaging Specialist. I enjoy Traveling, Golfing, and working out with my husband and spending any other time with my extra large family, nieces and nephews.

Chris – Registered Dental Hygienist

Hi, my name is Chris and I graduated from the Cerritos College Dental Hygiene program in 1985. I am a native Californian and am married to a great husband. We have two wonderful teenagers together. I love to garden, workout, and spend time doing philanthropy work. I have been the liaison for foster kids for the past few years. I love working with kids! I have been working for Dr. Sudick since 1993. Dr. Sudick, my fellow team members, and I are constantly working to provide our patients with the care and compassion they need to feel comfortable at each of their dental visits.


Cheryl – Registered Dental Hygienist

Hello! My name is Cheryl. I am a sixth generation Californian, and a second-generation dental hygienist. My mother was a hygienist here in Whittier for 40 years. I began my career in 1978 as a dental technician. Although I loved working with my hands and constructing crowns and bridges, something was missing. I wanted to have direct connection with patients. In 1990 I graduated from Oregon Health Science University in Portland, Oregon with a Bachelor of Science degree in Dental Hygiene. With the leaps of technology and the medical knowledge that oral health has on our bodies, I am proud to be a part of this exciting profession. I have worked as a team member in Dr. Sudick’s dental practice for the past nine years. I find it very rewarding to be providing quality dentistry and education to our patients; to help them achieve optimal oral health as well as a smile they can be proud of. Outside the office I enjoy spending time with my two beautiful daughters Joleen and Sarah doing girlie things and just hanging out. I also enjoy art, quilting, gardening, reading, and spending time with friends and family. I sincerely hope I’ll have the chance to meet you. Until then, keep smiling!

Lori – Office Manager

Hi, my name is Lori and I am the office manager for Dr. Sudick. I am a local born “Whittierite,” growing up in East Whittier and attending California High School. I left our “sunshine state” for four years, and moved to the other sunshine state of Arizona and attended the University of Arizona. GO WILDCATS! I have enjoyed working with Dr. Sudick since 1996. I am proud of our dedication to our patients, and of all the dental expertise Dr. Sudick provides through his excellent dental care. Our staff provides a friendly, caring environment for all our dental families. When I am not on the phone communicating with patients, I enjoy gardening and spending time with my wonderful grandchildren. Call me if you are looking for a great smile and the best dental experience! Scheduling appointments is my expertise!
