Meet the Office Staff

Our staff aim to provide each patient with a comfortable and relaxed experience, from the moment patients walk in to the moment they leave. Lorraine, Tanelle, and Jada work cohesively with Dr. Younce to treat all patients with the utmost care to ensure a safe, calm, and even enjoyable experience.


Lorraine is the office manager at our office. She earned her bachelor's degree from Boise State University in 1983. She began her current career with Dr. Younce as an excellent addition to our team three years ago, after 13 years of working in a private school. Lorraine and her husband have three wonderful daughters, and in their free time, they love to ski, golf, and travel.


Tanelle is a surgery assistant of Dr. Younce. She is an Idaho native and she attended the American Institute of Health Technology in 2004 where she received her Dental Assisting Certificate. Tanelle worked in General Dentistry for two years before starting work for Dr. Younce in 2006. Tanelle considers herself to be very fortunate living in Idaho where she has grown up enjoying the many outdoor activities the state has to offer. She loves to spend her summers camping, fishing, rafting, and canoeing. Tanelle and her family also have a long standing fall tradition of big game hunting.
