To celebrate National Dental Hygienist Week, which falls on the second week of April each year, we want to shout out how amazing we think our hygienists at Oakwood Dental are!
Kathy, Sara, Kelsie, and Liz have a combined 77+ years of dental hygiene experience! We thank you wonderful ladies for all that you do for our patients!
Blessed are those who can hold lively conversations with the helplessly mute, we shall call them hygienists.
First up is Kathy! Kathy started out in St. Joseph, Missouri, where she earned her dental hygiene degree before moving to Colorado. She joined our team in May of 2015.
"I love getting to know patients and their families. I try to make their dental experience as enjoyable as possible."
When Kathy is away from the office, you will find her spending time with family, cooking, and baking. She also loves gardening and yard work when the weather is nice. We thank Kathy for her years of dedication to our patients at Oakwood Dental!
Next up, Sara! Sara has been a hygienist since 2005. She joined the Oakwood Dental team in March 2017.
“I love meeting new people and finding common interests with my patients.”
Sara has one son who is in college. They have one golden retriever and a guinea pig. Sara enjoys going on hikes, spending time with her son, movies, crafts, and traveling when she can. Sara's positive outlook on life has brought so much happiness to Oakwood Dental! Thank you for the joy you bring to work every day!
Next is Kelsie! Kelsie has been a hygienist since 2014. She joined the Oakwood Dental team in May of 2021. She is a Colorado native who grew up in Lamar. Kelsie values her time with her husband, son, dogs, and family. In her free time, she enjoys reading and crafting. Kelsie is such a bright light, and we truly enjoy having her as a part of our team!
Last, but not least, Liz! Liz graduated from the Utah College of Dental Hygiene in 2011. Shortly after graduation, she moved to Texas where she has practiced dental hygiene for the past ten years. Liz and her family recently relocated from Austin to Castle Rock. She joined us at Oakwood Dental in December 2021. Liz & her husband and two daughters are enjoying being near the mountains and exploring their new state! Liz has been such a great addition to our team, we are so thankful she chose us!
