“I truly love interacting with patients and watching their kids grow. I look forward to meeting new patients and helping all patients with their needs.”



DeeAnn is a Business Administrator and is a Colorado native, born and raised in the San Luis Valley.

DeeAnn leads a very active life with her family that includes hiking, and enjoying the great outdoors.

“Working in this office keeps me on my toes working with great patients, doctors, and co-workers. The doctors are very compassionate in their work, which makes me confident in referring my own friends and family here for their dentistry.”

Danelle enjoys dance aerobics, riding her bicycle (three-speed cruiser), golf, and taking her dog, Walter, on hikes.

“The patients are what I really like about our practice. I get to spend a lot of time with some of them — sometimes three or four times a year — more often than I see some of my relatives!”

Maria has been a registered dental assistant for more than 20 years, is a dedicated professional, and enjoys chatting with and getting to know the patients she works with.

“I feel very privileged to be working in such a great office. It is very rare to find so many talented people all working together under one roof. There is warmth and sense of compassion here that you just don’t experience in many other places.”
