Our Amazing Team

Lisa

Office Manager

BACKGROUND

I grew up in Littleton, CO but am originally from Iowa. I have been with my husband for the past 40 years and together we have two children, a boy, and a girl. Both are now grown and have families of their own.

We also have three amazing grandchildren and another on the way. Grandkids are the greatest gift in the world!

The greatest gift is the gift of giving and I have always felt that if you could make someone happy in a place they don’t want to be, doing something that they don’t really want to be doing you are giving an amazing gift. Over the course of my dental career (39 yrs) this gift has only grown!

The best part of my job is helping others. Educating them about their oral health. When you stay at one office has long as I have (over 15 yrs at Belmar Park Dental) the patients become an extension of your family, you look forward to seeing them, you’re sad when they are sad and you’re excited for them when they are rejoicing.

At Belmar Park Dental Care our motto is “to take the very best care of our patient”. I am lucky enough to work with doctors that have given me the freedom to help our patients in whatever need, and in doing that it fills my soul!

OUTSIDE OF THE OFFICE

I cherish the peace and quite we enjoy due to living away from the city. We get to enjoy morning coffee with local wildlife and sunsets, life is good! We share our property with dogs, chickens and all the beautiful birds that also enjoy our area.

My grandkids are my world. I love being their Grammie! I also enjoy gardening, reading, rowing and hiking. I love to drive, which means I also love to drive fast cars! Baseball is my favorite sport, I love that it is a team sport but also a one-on-one sport.

My hero is Jesus. He makes me always want to be a better person tomorrow than I was today.

I am originally from northern Ohio and have been in the dental administrative field for over 20 years. I enjoy building relationships with our patients and helping to make their visits welcoming.

In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, reading, walking, and live theatre.

Julia

Hygiene Care Coordinator

BACKGROUND

I was born in Denver, CO and when I was 2 months old we moved to Kodiak, AK where we lived for 5 years before moving to Oahu. I lived their until I was 12 years old.

I love helping others, and I love seeing patients’ smiles transform. I also enjoy helping ease patients’ anxieties and building trust. That bond encourages patients to continue making regular dental visits and keep their smiles healthy.

FAVORITE QUOTE

“Show Empathy. Empathy is the ability to understand the patient’s situation, perspective and feelings.”

OUTSIDE OF THE OFFICE

In my free time I enjoy watching movies/shows, taking hikes with my fur baby (Belle), and spending time with my family. I love adventure, including future plans of exploring the world.

My Father is my hero, he always worked so hard to take care of his family. He has traveled the world and has seen places some people only dream of seeing. I think that gene rubbed off on me.

Mandy

Dental Assistant

BACKGROUND

I moved to Colorado 7 years ago looking for a change. I grew up in a small town from Kansas and lived in Tulsa, OK for 14 years before moving to Colorado. I love to travel and spend time with family and friends. I also love taking new adventures in life.

I chose dentistry because I needed a change in my life and it was the perfect fit for me! Learning new things everyday and taking care of people is a great thing to do!

I love the people that I get to work with and the challenges that I get to face. I get to challenge myself with new technology everyday.

OUTSIDE OF THE OFFICE

Working out to have a healthier life has become a new passion of mine. I like hanging out with friends after work to laugh and have a good time. I do have a little bit of a travel bug, and try to travel whenever I can. I would love to travel the world and have an adventurous life.

Mikaila

BACKGROUND

I have been in the dental field since 2012. I started out in a pediatric office and have also worked in a speciality office helping with full mouth rehabilitation. I joined the Belmar Park Dental Care team in 2019 and am so grateful to have found such an amazing group of people to work with.

The best part of my job is that I get to help improve people’s confidence by improving their smiles.

Outside of work I enjoy taking my two little ones on all kinds of fun adventures! I also enjoying exploring new restaurants with my wonderful husband, Erick.

I like to spend my summers outdoors hiking, camping, enjoying bonfires, gardening, and exploring new areas with my significant other Ben, and our 5 dogs.

I graduated in 2017 with a degree in animal sciences. I enjoy spending my free time working as a relief certified veterinary technician, and pet/house sitting.

My family is important to me and my niece is the light of my life. I enjoy going to comedy clubs, but most nights you will find me at home spending time with my pets! I’m a true crime aficionado!

Margarita

Dental Assistant

I grew up in Wheat Ridge, CO. I have been in the dental field for over 3 years. Previously I worked in Orthodontics for over 2 years.

I love being a part of the dental field and for me, seeing the transformation of a smile and confidence within patients is the best feeling.

I have a puppy named Gummy who really knows how to keep me busy. I also enjoy dancing, hiking, exploring new places, and learning new languages. When those things don’t keep me busy enough I also enjoy working out, spending time with friends and watching Turkish series.

Heather

Dental Hygienist

BACKGROUND

I started in dentistry in 1998 as a sterile tech and quickly moved up to assisting and then on to doing expanded duties assisting. After volunteering abroad in 2004 and 2005, I decided to take the next step in my career and apply for dental hygiene school.

I attended Community College of Denver’s Dental Hygiene program from 2007 to 2009 and graduated with honors. Before I graduated I decided that I wanted to work for a funny dentist who not only does excellent work, but also treats his patients and team with respect, and is close to my home so I could run to work when the weather is nice. Someone must have been listening to my plan, because I quickly landed here at Belmar Park Dental Care in June 2009. I found all of those features in this office and more. I love my job and the people I work with, and plan to stay here until I retire!

My special training includes being part of Fortune Management’s Dental Hygiene Mastery program which gives the team and I specialized training in bringing our patients the most up-to-date dentistry. This program has also taught us how to take the very best care of our patients. I feel very privileged to be a part of this program! In 2013 I received my advanced laser proficiency certification from the Academy of Laser Dentistry and I continue to learn more about how to take the best care of my patients with lasers. I also teach laser technology to other dental professionals on a regular basis.

OUTSIDE OF THE OFFICE

I spend my spare time doing things with my son, enjoying any outdoor activity and running races! My son and I love to camp, hike and we visit parks frequently along with lots of swimming and paddleboarding. This summer we plan to golf and get into archery!

Rachel

Dental Hygienist

BACKGROUND

I grew up in beautiful Coeur d’Alene, Idaho and have called Colorado home now for 5 years. I met my husband shortly after moving here and we have been married for almost two years now. We are enjoying being new home owners with our golden retriever, Sebastian.

I have been intrigued with teeth practically my entire life! From a young age I wanted to be an orthodontist. I found braces to be so fascinating and couldn’t wait to have a set of my own. As I learned more about dental professions, I changed paths knowing that being a dental hygienist was the right direction for me.

The best part of being a dental hygienist is helping to educate patients and watching people actively want to engage in making oral health changes. When patients come back excited about how their teeth feel and all that they have been doing is very rewarding.

OUTSIDE OF THE OFFICE

Outside of work you will find me up in the mountains fly fishing and camping with my husband and dog. When I’m not in the mountains, I spend most of my free time reading books or working in the yard.

Sunny

Dental Hygienist

BACKGROUND

I’m originally from California and three years ago my husband and I moved to Denver. I have been a hygienist for 6 years and love every minute of it.

I originally got into dentistry because I wanted to help my patients’ achieve better oral health. I used to be an avid “non-flosser” so I know the struggles my patients’ go through. I wanted to be able to show them that if I can do it, they can do it too!

For me the best part about my job is the relationships I get to build with my patients’.

OUTSIDE OF THE OFFICE

When I am not at work I enjoy hiking, travelling, and spending time with my puppy and of course my husband.

One thing that is definitely on my bucket list is to climb all the 14ers!

‘‘When it comes to dentist visits I am a certified dentophobic, but the entire team at Belmar Park Dental Care make the experience easy (almost even enjoyable). They have gotten me back in the game with routine visits and proper care. Special shout out to hygienist Rachael for doing such a great pain free job!’’
