Registered Dental Hygienist

Hello, my name is Tracy and I am a Registered Dental Hygienist with Montrose Family Dental.

I am originally from Ellensburg, Washington, where I studied and practiced dental hygiene for 14 years. Over the last two years, my family and I often traveled to Montrose for vacations and quickly realized this was home. My husband, three kids and I love camping, fishing, motorcycling, and hiking. On any given weekend you can find us enjoying the outdoors. We are excited to be living in such an incredibly beautiful state.

I am honored to be a part of Montrose Family Dental. The team is not only kind, but also committed to giving the best care possible to each and every patient. My patients are the reason I love being a hygienist. I enjoy getting to know each of them and giving them the care they need and deserve.

Dr. Drakulich’s Note:

“Tracy comes to our office with a great level of experience and has fit right in providing excellent patient care. She has done a wonderful job working into the flow of our office and learning our protocols. This can be a challenge coming from another office, but I feel Tracy’s attitude and professionalism have made the transition very smooth. Early on I could tell Tracy was a skilled and efficient clinician and a wonderful fit for our team. I’m sure when you meet Tracy you will know immediately that she will take excellent care of you and your family!”


Registered Dental Hygienist

Hello, my name is Hollee and I am Dr. Dan’s Registered Dental Hygienist.

My career began in Tucson, AZ but after several visits to Colorado and falling in love with Montrose my family and I decided to leave the desert and settle here in 2013. It has been a wonderful decision! My husband and 2 boys love the outdoors and the endless opportunities to explore new things. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family, bicycling, volleyball and softball.

What I love about practicing hygiene with Dr. Dan and the team is that I am able to combine my passion for serving patients with cleanings and provide instruction that helps improve their dental health. It is wonderful to work with a team so dedicated to patients overall well being.

Dr. Drakulich’s Note:

“Hollee is our Registered Dental Hygienist and joined our team from Arizona, where she received her hygiene training and education. Hollee is passionate about dental hygiene and it really shows. Patients continually comment how thorough Hollee is! I consider our hygiene department to be a very strong and integral part of our team. Hollee is part of “Team Hygiene” and will help ensure your foundation for your teeth is both happy and healthy!”
