Dr. Tyson was raised in the Tri-Cities and graduated from Kennewick High School in 2001. He then left home to serve a two-year mission for his church in Spain. In 2008, after receiving his Bachelor of Science in biology from Brigham Young University-Idaho, Dr. Tyson started dental school at Creighton University in Omaha, NE. While at Creighton, he was honored to receive the One World Clinic award and be inducted into Alpha Sigma Nu, a Jesuit University’s highest honor. After dental school, Dr. Tyson commissioned as a dental officer in the US Army and spent five years at Fort Bliss, TX. His first two years he worked in the dental unit, and then was transferred to a Combat Team where he was responsible for the oral health of 4,500 soldiers. Dr. Tyson had the opportunity to practice dentistry in unique environments, including three rotations at the National Training Centers as well as a deployment to Afghanistan. Through the Army, he received advanced education and training in numerous specialties,
including oral surgery as well as crown and bridge treatments. In 2005, Dr. Tyson met the love of his life Katie and they were promptly married in 2006. Together he and his wife have four children: Logan, Lyla, Lincoln, and Lizabeth. His family is by far the most important aspect of his life. They like to camp, swim, hike, go to the movies, and simply spend time together.
Dr. Tyson knew he wanted to work in the dental field ever since he was a little boy. He loved going to the office with his dad, especially to treat patients with emergencies. He remembers being amazed that his dad was able to relieve pain for so many people, and he wanted to have that same impact.
Dr. Turrell Beck attended Brigham Young University in Provo, UT, where he earned his Bachelor of Science in microbiology before continuing to dental school at Creighton University in Omaha, NE, where he received his Doctorate of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree.

Additionally, he has completed training for oral surgery and many other treatments. Dr. Beck became a dentist to make a positive difference in the lives of those around him.

I’ve been working in the dental field since 1975 and have been with Dr. Turrell Beck since 1995. I assist him with all our patients’ needs and keep our office on time and running smoothly. Each one of our patients is a unique individual and I enjoy getting to know them on a personal level. I love working with people, both with our patients and our wonderful staff. Dr. Turrell Beck is a great leader who is very concerned with all his patients and wants to provide quality care to everyone. My husband, Gary, and I have two children. Our daughter, Miranda, and her husband, David, have a son named Easton and a daughter named Elyse. Our son, Tyson has served in the army for a number of years serving two tours in Iraq. He recently returned to the area to further his education. He has a son named Trey. We love spending time with our grandchildren and children.
I relocated from the Olympia area to complete my degree in dental hygiene at Columbia Basin College. I quickly became fond of the sunny weather and activities this area has to offer, and made it my home away from home. I joined Dr. Turrell Beck’s practice soon after graduation. I now perform dental hygiene therapies for our patients and enjoy focusing on personal oral hygiene routines. I strive to customize every patients experience and maximize the impact of our time together. In my personal life, I enjoy spending time outdoors hiking or on the river. I also make the time to travel with my family.
Dental hygiene is my passion. I’ve had the privilege of practicing for a number of years after graduating from Yakima Valley Community College’s dental hygiene program. I’m enjoying working with Dr. Turrell Beck because I can refer family and friends to his practice and I know they’ll receive the highest quality care. It’s wonderful to be part of a dental team that has each patient’s oral health and overall heath as our priority. My husband, Brian, and I have a daughter and son-in-law who live in Wyoming. My daughter also practices dental hygiene. Our son is attending WSU Pullman, where he is pursuing a degree in agricultural technology. I enjoy family and friends, hiking, traveling, and gardening.
I recently moved to the Tri-Cities from Moses Lake. I graduated from Charter College as a registered dental assistant and was fortunate to join Dr. Turrell Beck’s staff.

Dr. Turrell Beck’s concern for his patients is evident in everything he does, and our team shares his attitude for excellent patient care. I have three children, two girls and one son. My family and friends are the priority of my life. In my free time, I enjoy swimming, barbequing, and church on Sundays.
