Meet the Team

We want to introduce you to our team here at Rockside Dental.  Our goal has always been to assemble a team that is not just clinically incredible, but also that is composed of great people with great personalities.  Most of our patients come to our office as referrals from friends, which is exactly what we are aiming for!  If your friend talked up how awesome one of our hygientists is or really connected with either Dr. Slivka or Dr. Jackson, feel free to use the scheduling links to choose your own appointment!  That being said, we're confident you'll have a great experience and feel at home with all of our providers

Dental Assistant

Hi, my name is Crystal. I'm one of Dr. Slivka's chairside assistants. I've been lucky enough to be sitting next to him for two and a half years now and I've loved every minute of it!  So, a little about me. . . I grew up here in Tucson and went to high school at Mountain View. I am a married mom to two very energetic boys that keep me busy. I’m sure I will see many of you around at the parks or at school functions!


Dental Assistant

Hey there! My name is Shelly and I'm one of the assistants here who has the great job to sit next to Dr. Slivka all day every day! There's nothing I'd rather do! I also am from Tucson and have been in the dental field since finishing high school. The best part of my job is listening to Dr. Slivka give me advice. . . Every. Single. Day. 


Dental Hygienist

Hi! I’m Holly, one of the awesome hygienists here at Rockside Dental. I’m originally from Pinetop but moved to Tucson to go to school. I love to snowboard, plays sports, and play video games. When my husband and I aren't working we basically live at the softball diamond with our two girls and love it!

Dental Hygienist

Hi! I’m Kim and I am one of Dr. Slivka’s amazing hygienists. I have been cleaning teeth for over 7 years and absolutely love it.

A little about me… I am originally from the potato state, Idaho. Yes, I miss the greenery but maybe not so much the winters! I went to school at NAU and met my husband there who is from Sierra Vista. That is how I ended up in Tucson! I have 2 young sons who keep me busy and make sure my house is never quiet or clean. 

I look forward to meeting you!

Dental Hygienist

Hello! My name is Josephine. . Sometimes I'm called Jo. I don't mind either name. I graduated from Hygiene school in May of 2007 and I have been with Rockside Dental for over 2 years and love it! I have five kids total but not all at once and I didn't carry all of them. I have two of my own, my husband has two of his own, and we have one together. My family is the important thing to me and being close to them during work hours makes life super convenient.. I love being with my family, spending time volunteering at my church, and watching movies.
