In 2007 Dr. Rick Raney left a career as an airplane mechanic to pursue dentistry. Graduating from the University of Washington, Seattle in 2011 Rick decided to move his wife and children to make Wyoming their home. He purchased a practice in Buffalo Wyoming where he spent 7 years building it up.

Now, he, his wife and 3 sons have moved to Sheridan and opened up Goose Creek Dental Clinic. Rick and his family love their new home town of Sheridan and can’t wait to continue serving the good people of Sheridan and its surrounding areas.

Of course having 3 boys the Raney family keeps busy. Rick and his wife enjoys watching the boys play football, soccer and wrestle. Rick also loves the outdoors and of course hunting. This past summer his wife performed in several performing art productions and looks forward to the possibility of doing more.

Monica Burridge is the Practice Manager for Goose Creek Dental Clinic. She has been in the dental field since 2005, she was the manager for Dr. Raney when he was in Buffalo where she and her husband still live.

Monica and her husband raised 3 boys in Buffalo all of whom are now grown and out of the house. She has one beautiful grand-daughter, and another grand-child on the way! Her and her husband enjoy camping and traveling when they are not spending time with family. Monica believes family is the heart strings of a person and she includes her co-workers and patients as her dental family.

If Monica isn’t answering the phones at Goose Creek Dental Clinic, she is working behind the scenes making sure everyone’s dental claims, treatment plans and accounts are in order. She loves what she does and enjoys seeing people happy with the care that Dr. Raney and his team provide for their patients. If you need anything attended to or looked after Monica is the gal to ask for.

My name is Tavy and I joined the Goose Creek Dental team in July of 2018. As a dental assistant I am always learning something new! The “patient experience” we have created is unlike any other and it is such a blessing to be a part of. We strive to make sure every patient is fully informed during their treatment and that they have fun at their appointments. I love being able to help Dr. Raney create beautiful smiles! My co-workers are like my family so it is fun coming to work every day!

In our free time, my husband and I love spending time with our friends and family. You can normally find us laughing and joking around!
