Hello, I'm Dr. Gilligan, and I want to personally welcome you to our practice. I love dentistry because it gives me daily opportunities to help people, both from a dental and personal standpoint. I am privileged to help eliminate people's pain, to restore damaged teeth, to control disease and to improve their oral function. But my greatest professional pleasure comes from seeing a patient walk out with renewed self-confidence and an improved self-image. I truly love to see people smile! After four years of studying art and graduating college with a BA in Art Education, it would be inconceivable for me to view dentistry as anything but a blend of art and science. Dentistry is primarily a healing science, but when blended with a keen sense of form, function and aesthetic balance, beauty and harmony can be achieved.

Karen's favorite part of her job is meeting people from many different walks of life. When Karen is not in the office she enjoys skiing, biking, yoga, & healthy cooking.

Becky grew up in South Dakota but she is a long time Summit County Resident after graduating from dental hygiene school. Becky has an especially gentle touch with her patients. Although Becky has never had a cavity herself, you will never find her lecturing her patients; her approach is always positive and non-judgemental. When Becky is not busy cleaning teeth she enjoys spending time with her new baby and puppy, running, playing softball and managing her fantasy football league.
Becca, a recent addition to our staff, is excited to meet all of Dr. Gilligan’s great patients and help provide them with the excellent care they have become accustom to! Becca grew up and went to Dental Hygiene school in Michigan and is now happy to call Summit County home so she can enjoy the mountains and her love of skiing and snowboarding.
