Dr. AJ Donick grew up in northwestern Pennsylvania. He earned a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering from Penn State University and completed his dental degree at the State University of New York at Buffalo. After dental school, he attended an Advanced Education in General Dentistry Residency at Idaho State University, where he expanded his skills in the practice of dentistry. Dr. Donick is married to his wife Hilary, a veterinarian, also from Pennsylvania, and they have a new baby. AJ and Hilary decided they wanted to return to Eastern Oregon and contacted South County Health District. We could not believe our good fortune! They will be here in April and are projecting Dr. Donick's first day at the Union Family Dental Clinic to be April 17th. He brings with him several years of experience and a great love for our special piece of Eastern Oregon. He worked at the Elgin Dental Clinc and has a special interest in Community dental services. He is excited to bring his skill and experience to the Union Family Dental Clinic and help us expand our services to the residents of our health district.
Our current dentist, Dr. Harrell, will be on leave for a few months and plans to return when our mobile dentistry outreach is ready to launch. Dr. Harrell has worked for community dental clinics for several decades and is extremely knowledgeable. She is excited about spearheading our expansion into the new technology of teledentistry and mobile dentistry.
