Elyse Argueta-Nava

Dental Coordinator

“It has been almost five years since I chose to step into the dental field. It was no doubt one of the best decisions I have ever made. After graduating from Ross Medical Education Center, I went on to work for a few dental offices. I learned as much as I could from colleagues, gained experience, and met some incredible professionals in the field while I searched for an office where I could grow and make a difference. It was not long into my search for a purpose that I found Trinity Community Care. After meeting the amazing people here and learning of the profound work they do I knew this was a place I could make a difference. As the dental coordinator for Trinity Community Care, I hope to bring ease to patients’ minds by reassuring them they are in safe hands with us.”

Avni Thomas

Hello TCC! I am excited to be the newest board member (my first meeting was in May 2021)! I have been working in fundraising for 14 years, researching and writing grants at Oakland University and now Presbyterian Villages of Michigan. I’m looking forward to sharing what I’ve learned to further TCC.
I’ve been wanting to serve in health care for as long as I can remember. While I’ve had some involvement (at OU I worked with the autism center, and at Presbyterian Villages, I raise funds for older adults), I’m ready to roll up my selves and have a direct impact on people’s health.
Spending some time at the clinic confirmed TCC is the organization I’ve been looking for! I look forward to meeting you. Until then, feel free to drop me a note at Avni.d.thomas@gmail.com.
