Practice Manager / Finance Manager
Lisa Lash, Practice Manager, has a funny story. She was with our office for 7 years, then Matthew came along and she left our office to raise the little guy. Well, 10 years ago she returned to the office and has loved reconnecting with all the patients she missed dearly while away. In 2018, Lisa became a Fellow with the American Association of Dental Office Management. When Lisa is not at the office, you may find her traveling to watch her son and his team play college lacrosse.
Judy Hunter, former Financial Manager, retired in May 2022.
Our Caring Dental Assistants
Tashina, Majda, Victor, Ghizlane & TeAnna
Tashina, Majda, Victor, Ghizlane, TeAnna are our wonderful dental assistants.
Tashina just celebrated her 12 year work anniversary with our office. We have the best dental assistants that are very skilled chair-side. They enjoy seeing each of our patients during the most complex procedures as well as the simple follow up visits. All of our assistants participate in continual dental education.
Majda has been with our office since she was in dental school - hard to believe it's been 5 years already! We are so lucky she found us all those years ago.
Victor joined our practice in 2019. He is amazing with patients, and all patients seem to enjoy his gentle touch. When Victor is not in the office, you may find him fishing at the nearest lake in the summer time or skiing in the winter.
Ghizlane as been an outstanding assistant in our office since 2021. She is a beautiful person inside and out. Her sweet personality rubs off on the rest of us.
TeAnna is our most resent hire. She moved from Nebraska last year. She is not only an assistant but is a part time student for radiology. When TeAnna is not in the office, she is probably studying or traveling back to Nebraska to spend time with her family.
April, Greg, Kallie, Becky & Cathy
April started with Associates In Family Dentistry in May of 2016, quickly moving to the position of lead hygienist. She loves patient interaction and teaching patients about oral hygiene care. When April is not in the office, you may find her on the sideline of her son's football games, at her daughter's dance/gymnastic lessons or at the gym at 5:30am. Yes, she works out before coming to see patients -- wow!
Greg has been making patients smile since 2003 at our practice. He loves everything about dentistry and has great life stories to share when you visit for your check up and cleanings. Greg enjoyed his time oversees in the Air Force. You should ask him about his time in Alaska. Greg loves spending time with his wife and his dogs that he refers to as "the girls". Greg can be found riding his bicycle to work most summer days. When you see him riding; honk to say hi.
Kallie is a graduate from San Juan College in Farmington, New Mexico with an Associates of Applied Science in Dental Hygiene. She has been enjoying Colorado for the past 6 years with her husband John and their two dogs, Bexley, a silver lab and Classic, a papillon. When she’s not working, Kallie loves eating Reese’s, baking, camping, four wheeling. She rides her bicycle to the office each summer day! Her favorite part of dentistry is local anesthesia and removing biofilm/calculus off teeth.
Becky is a part-time team member, might find her here on Thursday-Saturday when she is so kindly filling in for someone else. Becky has been here so long, it's hard to count the years. If Becky is not in the office, you can find her taking care of animals, spending time with her grandchildren or biking.
Cathy joined our practice in 2019. Dr Cathy has been a great addition to our dental team. You will find her in the office on Wednesday and Fridays. She loves educating patients on their oral hygiene. She is a graduate from University of Iowa and did her residency in Minnesota. She meet her husband in Colorado and they have 4 beautiful grown children.
