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!

Kirpa S., Registered Dental Hygienist

Hi! My name is Kirpa, and I earned my dental hygiene degree from Concorde Career College. I started working as a hygienist for Dr. Sudick in 2016. I truly love and appreciate the tender care we offer to all of our patients! It is very gratifying for me as a hygienist to give care to my patients in a calm, caring atmosphere where their comfort and wellbeing are the main concerns. I am thankful every day to be part of Dr. Sudick’s dental team where patients are treated as people, not just teeth. In my free time, I enjoy playing tennis, running, cooking, and spending time with my family.
