Melanie

Registered Dental Hygienist

I enjoy educating each of my patients and talking through treatment with them. It’s fun to see when a patient moves from not understanding the importance of dental health and oral hygiene to “getting it”. I help my patients learn the best ways to keep their teeth and gums in great shape by introducing them to new oral hygiene processes and products and helping them develop better oral hygiene habits. Each person has specific needs, so I work with them to find the solutions that work for them. I also clean teeth and perform other dental hygiene processes during my workday.

I’m a Colorado native, so I’m at home in the mountains: hiking, skiing, picnicking, you name it! My husband Alex and I welcomed our first child, a little girl, in the summer of 2014 and we added a baby boy to our family in 2017. Luckily our high-energy dog prepared us for parenthood!
