Meet the Doctors
Dentist in Arlington
MEET DR. BRYCE DUSKIN
I was born and raised right here in Arlington Washington. Our office is located on our family homestead and is the same land my great grandpa used to farm. I graduated from Arlington High School in 1994. I was an all league linebacker, running back, and record holder in the Discus for almost a decade. After high school I attended the University of Idaho, and played linebacker for their football team! After three seasons, I decided to focus on getting into Dental School and transfered to WSU.
In 1998, I graduated Cum Laude from Washington State University with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Zoology. I then attended Dental School at the University of Washington and graduated in 2003.
I truly love serving our community. My wife, Heidi, and I have three kids Emily, Eric, and Blake. In my spare time, I enjoy participating in my kids activites. I am the Cubmaster of Pack 29 in Arlington Wa. I also enjoy watching my kids play sports, participate in dance and cheer leading. I am an active member of the Rotary Club of Arlington, Paul Harris Fellow and I was the Arlington Rotary Club President in 2020-2021.
I love helping people achieve a healthy and beautiful smile. My favorite thing to do is provide dentistry that exceeds a patient’s expectations. It is very rewarding to be able to meet and treat so many different people from my hometown.
EDUCATION AND CONTINUING EDUCATION
To provide my patients with the most advanced treatment and techniques, I continuously attend advanced education courses. I am a member of the Inland Empire Perio Study Club which has given me extensive hands-on training with implants, bone grafting, and soft tissue procedures. I am a candidate for my mastership in Academy of General Dentistry, and have completed their requirement of over 1500 hours of continuing education. I am a proud member of the American Academy of Implant Dentistry, and American Dental Association. I have completed the Spear advanced dental curriculum which has provided advanced training in complex cases and some excellent courses in cosmetic dental procedures and techniques.
IN THE PRACTICE
I find it really rewarding to help people achieve optimal dental health and help them achieve a smile they always wanted. Our team takes a preventative approach and enjoys helping our patients achieve optimal dental health. Each patient is very special to us. I love meeting new people and hearing about everyone’s different life experiences.
We want to provide our patients with a truly relaxing dental experience. Outside of our operatory windows, we have a wetland with bird feeders. It is relaxing and fun to see the different birds and animals that decide to come and visit. Our team also likes to do things for our community both inside and outside our office. Our practice has several team members that volunteer their time to charitable dental care. Our dental team also selects one charitable organization each month and donates 20% of every new patient exam towards helping the Arlington, Wa community.
MEET DR. AREZOO HOLDAWAY
I was raised in the providence of Kurdistan, in the western part of Iran. At the age of 18, I left Iran in the pursuit of a higher education. After living in Turkey for a year, I finally arrived in Washington state in 2006. I attended the University of Washington and graduated with a bachelor of science degree in biology. My husband and I then moved to Arizona, where I completed a masters degree in biomedical sciences, followed by a doctorate of dental medicine degree from Midwestern University.
I always knew I wanted a career in healthcare, but I was drawn to dentistry because of its ability to combine art and science when providing oral healthcare to patients. I take this individualist and comprehensive approach when recommending treatment plans to each patient.
I love being a part of a team that cares so much about the quality of care provided to the community.
Outside of work:
I love spending time with my husband Eric, my son Zane , and my dog Luna, exploring the beautiful PNW. Our son, who was born during the pandemic, loves dining out and eating at restaurants. We love watching him experience different cultures through food.
MEET DR. GAVIN MCNELIS
I was born in Hinsdale, Illinois but moved shortly after and was raised in Redmond, Washington. I went to Interlake High School where I played soccer, baseball, and swam.
I received my Biology Degree and Doctorate in Dental Surgery from the University of Washington. As an undergraduate, I worked as a dental assistant and volunteered in the UW Dental Fears Research clinic which ingrained a compassionate, empathetic, and gentle approach to dental care.
After Dental School, I completed a General Practice Residency in the Portland VA Healthcare System. My advanced training there gave me a comprehensive understanding of both complex medical and dental conditions.
My fiancé, Stephanie, and I are happy to be back in Washington and look forward to serving the Arlington community.
Outside of work:
I enjoy exploring the outdoors through hiking, snowshoeing and fishing. I also try to stay active playing golf and practicing archery. My fiancé and I have one cat, Louie, and are hoping to get a dog soon!
