Our Hygienists

Paula Stice

Registered Dental Hygienist

Hello, My name is Paula Stice.   I am glad you are choosing to check out the team at Ozark Dental Center.  I have been part of this Dental Hygiene team since 2009.  It has been a blessing to work in the dental field for over 35 years.  I started out working as a dental assistant in high school and then completed my Dental Hygiene degree in 1988 at Missouri Southern State College, where I graduated at the top of my class.  Since graduating Dental Hygiene school, I have continued my education by obtaining certifications in dental anesthesia, advanced periodontal(gum) treatment therapies, and certifications in two types of lasers used to treat periodontal disease.  It is a joy to assist my patients achieve healthy and beautiful smiles. I strive to work with each patient to develop an individualized treatment plan that fits their personal desires and lifestyles.  It is my desire to treat each patient as if they are my own family.  And we have fun celebrating when goals are reached.

A little personal background-I grew up and still live in the Steelville, Missouri area.  My husband of 33 years, Scott, and I have three daughters-two of which are married.  We LOVE spending time with our two beautiful granddaughters.  I enjoy gardening, teaching children's classes at church, raising chickens, and cooking for our family and friends.

Registered Dental Hygienist

Hello!  I have been working in the Dental Field for the past 15 years.  My passion is serving others by providing high quality care and educating patients on how to maintain good oral health at home.  I strive to keep up on the latest technologies and practices to better serve my patients.  I take pride in building lasting professional relationships with each and every patient I see.

When not in the office I can be found on our family farm in Success, MO or chasing our boys from gym to gym as they play ball.  We have four boys that range from Preschool to College so to say that we stay busy with them is an understatement!  I look forward to meeting you and helping you achieve your best oral health!
