Meet Our Team

Ella - Dental Hygienist


As a dental hygienist, providing comprehensive dental care to all of my patients in a welcoming, relaxed, and caring environment is my number ONE priority. I place great value in listening to your concerns, expectations, and desires. I further place emphasis on finding the answers to your questions and educating you on conditions or treatments presented. Your experience with us at Sullivan Family Dental will have you telling your family and friends all about your wonderful experience!

Prior to joining Sullivan Family Dental, I acquired extensive experience in implant, cosmetic, general, oral surgery, and periodontal dentistry. I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene from the University of Missouri, Kansas City. Having learned from the best, I am very excited to utilize my knowledge and expertise to provide the best comprehensive treatment to my patients.

On a more personal note, I was born and spent part of my childhood in a country south of Russia. I am fluent in Russian and understand several other languages. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my two kids. We love to swim, run, dance, go for a bike ride, bake, and simply act silly. I also love to travel.

I look forward to providing the best care to my patients at Sullivan Family Dental. I can’t wait to help you achieve a healthy mouth and your ideal smile!

Carmen - Dental Hygienist


As the newest member of Dr. Sullivan’s team, it is exciting to work with a group dedicated individuals who are committed to providing dental care that exceeds the expectations of our patients. Joining the team in June 2017, it is a pleasure to meet our patients to help each person maintain a healthy smile.

I graduated from Rockhurst University in 2009 with a degree in Molecular Biology. While attending Rochurst, I was a member of the Women’s Golf Team. Following graduation, I attended the University of Missouri Kansas City graduating with a Bachelor’s of Science in Dental Hygiene. A fun fact is that my sister, Megan, and I were both students of the dental hygiene program graduating together in 2011. In my free time I enjoy spending time with friends and family. I am an avid sports fan and my morning show is typically Sports Center. Being outside is one of my favorite places to be – especially if it is walking down the fairway on any golf course. I have an opportunity to continue playing golf and love to compete competitively in amateur golf events around the country. One other fun activity is assisting the Women’s Golf Team at Rockhurst.

I look forward to meeting you when you visit Sullivan Family Dental!

Kelly - Financial & Insurance Coordinator


Hello, my name is Kelly. I had the pleasure of joining the Sullivan Family Dental Team in February of 2015. I was referred to Dr. Sullivan by a friend who thought I would be a good fit at her practice because of my years of project management and my preivous 5 years in the dental field handling front office billing and insurance. I knew the minute I walked in to meet with Dr. Sullivan that her office would be a place for me.

Our office is built on very strong, ethical values and principles, and directed by leadership that leads us by example. We consider each other family, we love what we do, and we work flawlessly together. We love and care for our patients, and that makes it a joy to come to work every day.

I am blessed with a beautiful family: my husband Doug, my daughter Hannah, my son Beau, and our grandson Newton. We are inspired by serving others at the KC Men’s Rescue Mission, Step Up For Down Syndrome, our church, and those around us who are in need.

Erica - Dental Assistant


Hello, my name is Erica Peña. I am Dr. Sullivan’s dental assistant. Born and raised in KCK, I attended Turner High School, graduating in 2005. I then worked as a conference support specialist for five years. Due to the recession, I was forced to examine my career path.

As I pondered the path I wanted to take, I was reminded of the awesome experiences I had with both my childhood dentist and orthodontist. In September of 2010, I attended Concorde Career College for dental assisting. Looking back, I now see that the recession was a blessing in disguise. It’s a pleasure to work alongside such a kind and caring dentist like Dr. Sullivan. One of the greatest feelings I get is when we have helped a patient achieve their best oral health and they become confident with their beautiful smile.

When I’m not at work, I enjoy spending time with my husband Jeremy, who just so happens to be my high school sweetheart. Together we have three beautiful children: Eva age 10, Jacob age 8, and Jeremiah age 2. Nothing brings me more joy than spending time with my family and friends. When I do have that little bit of free time, my favorite thing to do is sing karaoke. I would like to leave you with some wise advice: floss floss floss!!

Christy - Clinical Coordinator and Dental Assistant


Hi there! I’m Christy and I have a couple different roles in the practice. I work as both a clinical coordinator, which allows me to contribute to many different facets of the organization, and also as a dental assistant where I get to interact with patients one-on-one. Both roles give me the opportunity to make sure you have a great experience – so for a people pleaser like me that’s as good as it gets.

I received my education at The University of Iowa and was a corporate communications manager prior to entering the dental field and joining Sullivan Family Dental. We make use of my former career in some of our written communications, which is fun.

Outside of work I can’t get enough family time. My husband and I have three kids ages 12, 7 and 2 who light up my life. I’m a sweet tooth (another reason this is a good field for me), I love to travel and I own a lot of little pets.

Every day is an adventure! Can’t wait to meet you.

Our mission at Sullivan Family Dental is to provide you and your family with exceptional comprehensive dental care in a caring environment. We believe in creating a positive experience for each and every patient, and we are committed to developing personal relationships based on trust and professional expertise.

We Look Forward to Meeting You!
