Ilya and Tracy volunteer with Compassion Clinics where they provide free dental cleanings at Saturday clinics across the metro area. Seeing the vast need for oral care in our city, they reached out to Good News Community Health Center concerning their vision to create a permanent space where dental providers could serve the community regularly. Providing dental care in the community is a dream come true for all of our providers. We can’t wait to meet you! Please reach out to us at 503-660-3161 to schedule an appointment.
Tracy Brunkhorst, RDH, EPDH
Tracy knew right from the start that Dental Hygiene was a perfect fit for her career. From a young age she was called to serve and it has been a thread in her life that has weaved a wonderful tale of how love and caring for patients has led her to her passion, which is to bring mobile dentistry to those in need. Tracy is a 1996 grad from North Dakota and her roots lie in the plains. Tracy’s Norwegian heritage and culture lives bright inside and she hopes to visit Norway someday. She would have never guessed she would reside in the forests of Mt. Hood. She loves living here in Boring, where you can find her chasing after goats, chickens, and ducks. Tracy is married and has 2 kids. She loves their 3 horses and their beloved family pet dog, Harper. Volunteering is a platform that is fulfilling for Tracy. She loves serving at Compassion Clinics, which has enriched her life. She is faculty at Mt. Hood Community College in the Dental Hygiene program. A general dental practice along with a non-profit clinic is where you will find her educating and working with her beloved patients. Currently, Tracy also serves in leadership with her local hygiene association. She is so anxious to share all of the above traits with you! Open arms and smiles in abundance is Tracy’s payload!
