Our dental hygienist; Trish joined our team in October 2010. She is a Colorado native and has worked on the Front Range for 23 years as a full time hygienist. This has given her the ability to reach out to many people by working in various types of dental practices. Including a Periodontal office and many General practices. These skills helped her teach patients how they can maintain optimal oral health. Her goal has always been to help people understand their periodontal situation and prevention. She is very compassionate with what she does and has a way of making everyone feel comfortable.
She is extremely motivated to stay current with continuing education and the latest technology. In 2011 she was certified in Soft Tissue Laser Therapy that has benefited the way we treat periodontal disease. Many people can tell a difference only after one treatment. As we all know three out of four people still loose there teeth due to periodontal disease (gum disease) and this can also help prevent more serious systemic problems associated with bacteria entering the blood stream.
Trish is married with two beautiful children and stays busy with 4-H, boating, fishing, hiking, camping, and just hanging out together.
Alyssa has been our dental assistant since June 2012 and been employed in the dental field since 2007. She has completed extra training to become an expanded duty dental assistant, which allows her to do more hands on work. One of the many things Alyssa is able to do is fabricate and place temporary crowns. Alyssa stays up to date on all dental procedures and participates in training courses throughout the year to further her dental knowledge. Alyssa will help you feel at ease while you’re visiting our office. She is a very compassionate person. On her time off Alyssa enjoys spending time with her family, physical fitness activities and the many recreational opportunities that Colorado has to offer.
