We believe that if done correctly, children can learn that a visit to the dentist can be easy, anxiety-free, and fun! As a team (Team Pollock!) we will decide the right course of action for your child.
Because you know you and your child, let us introduce the rest of Team Pollock – the dedicated professionals that help make each and every visit to the dentist positive, fun, and anxiety-free!
Some people know from an early age what they want to do in life. As far back as I can remember, I wanted to be a dentist and help children maintain the health of their teeth.
I grew up in the Cleveland area and now live in Solon with my wife, Erin, and our two sons, Josh and Tyler. When I’m not at work, I love spending time with them, whether it’s driving them around to soccer games and baseball practice, or cooking for them. And of course, making sure they brush their teeth!
I've been in the dental field for over 40 years, and although trends have come and gone in dentistry, kids are still my passion. I love seeing an apprehensive patient turn into a happy one. I’ve been married to my husband Jeff for 31 years and we have one daughter. I love to read, entertain friends and family and most of all - travel!
I work in the front of the office as a Receptionist. I've been with Team Pollock for 9 years after receiving my Dental Assisting Certificate. I am married, and my husband Tyler and I have one fur baby, Jersey. I also work at Norton City Schools as a substitute teacher's aide and substitute secretary. In my free time, I love to go kayaking and being outdoors as much as possible.
I'm Kim, a Dental Hygienist for Dr. Pollock. I've had a passion for dental hygiene and dentistry since my first job in the field in my senior year of high school. Since then, I've worked in pediatric dentistry, general dentistry, and for the last 23 years, here with Dr. Pollock. I received my certificate in Dental Hygiene from The Ohio State University, where I also received my BA in Sociology. I love working with our patients, not only for their entertaining stories, but also for their interesting take on current events! I have four adult children and five grandchildren, with one more on the way. When I can, I love riding my bicycle on the trails in Stark County.
Dental Hygienist, Social Media Manager
My name is Taylor, Dental Hygienist and Social Media Manager. I’ve been with Team Pollock since 2013 and I love to be in the office interacting with kids, but also online connecting with parents. I live in Cuyahoga Falls with my husband, Steve, and our son. We have been foster and adoptive parents since 2016. We also have an open door policy when it comes to senior pets and special needs animals. We currently have 3 senior rescue dogs, and a three-legged hedgehog. My son and I love to garden, take family bike rides, and hike the CVNP!
I am Allyson, former patient turned hygienist! I went to Stark State College for dental hygiene while working as a Dental Assistant at Dr. Pollock’s office. I got married in May of 2020 in a beautiful backyard wedding to my husband Preston. We have a labradoodle named Chewy, who we love dearly, and my favorite activity is sitting by the fire at night with my friends and family, traveling with my husband, and snowboarding.
EFDA and CDA
My name is Nichole and I am an EFDA and Chair Assistant with Team Pollock. You can also reach me on the evenings and weekends on the emergency line - It’s nice to put a face with a voice sometimes! I have been with Team Pollock for 20 years and graduated from the Akron Institute and Case Western Reserves EFDA program. I have my CDA and Coronal Polishing certificate. I have two sons, Shawn and Kyle, and we have the most beautiful house hippo there ever was, CoCo Chanel, our rescue pitbull. I have a passion for rescuing and rehabilitation of all animals, but especially pitties!
EFDA and CODA
I'm Melissa, a Chairside Assistant and EFDA. I have worked here for 13 years and counting! My husband Dave and I have two amazing sons, Colton and Cooper. Colton keeps us busy with sports and school activities, and Cooper keeps us busy by just being Cooper! I love to craft and get my creative juices flowing, and I'm the go-to person for any artsy craft projects for both the office and my friends and family. My absolute favorite thing to do is spend time with my family.
My name is Rachel, and not only am I a Certified Dental Assistant, I am also a former patient of Dr. Pollock’s. I was that "scared of the dentist" kid that now helps the nervous ones enjoy their appointments. I live with my dog, Shadow and like to do DrumFIT and love to take Shadow to the dog park to play with her puppy friends.
My name is Sam and I am a Dental Assistant here at Dr. Pollock’s pediatric office. I am grateful to be a part of this amazing team and excited to come to work everyday and meet equally amazing patients. As a mom I understand the experience of bringing your children to the dentist, and I strive to give the children I work with the same compassion I give my children. When I’m not working I enjoy spending time with my family, cooking, playing, and attempting to watch movies. Working at this office with great people makes me smile and I hope I can help your children smile as well.
