MEET OUR TEAM
Donna has lived in Colorado for the last 14 years, and has been working in dentistry for 30 years. After managing an office for 8 years, she realized her passion lies in working one-on-one with patients, so she went back to school to become a dental hygienist.
Donna loves getting to know her patients, has a gentle, but thorough approach to her care, and prides herself in helping patients achieve their optimal oral health.
In her free time, she enjoys hanging out with her 3 adventurous dogs, jeeping and exploring nature.

She is passionate about providing quality care and education to ensure my patients have a great experience at the dental office.
