Dental Hygiene Staff


Jill graduated from Idaho State University with a degree in Dental Hygiene, and later returned to work as clinical faculty.  She moved to Phoenix in 1993, after spending several years living in southern California, and has been one of Dr. Rush’s most loyal hygienists ever since.

Jill loves both ballet and her Idaho heritage, and dances in her dreams through the potato fields.







Karen grew up in southern California and moved to Arizona in 1995.  She graduated from Phoenix College and has been a dental hygienist since 1999.  She also has done extensive research in health and nutrition.  In her spare time, Karen volunteers with a local nonprofit, mentoring foster children.  She is also in the midst of working with her husband to create a documentary film addressing the foster care system in Arizona.
