Hi I'm Amy! I have recently moved to Colorado and am so excited to join the Sopris Smiles practice. I was born and raised in Tucson, Arizona and after meeting my fiancé, took on a new adventure and moved to the Chicago area where I pursued my education to become a Dental Hygienist. I obtained my Associate of Applied Science in Dental Hygiene in 2020 from the College of DuPage. As a dental hygienist, my focus is providing patients with individualized optimal care and educating them on maintaining proper oral health. I am committed to making appointments a comfortable and positive experience while building personal relationships.
In my spare time, I enjoy hiking, fishing, traveling, and cooking.
Hi I'm Lindsey! I was born and raised in Colorado. I attended school at Concorde Career College for dental assisting in 2017. That's where my passion for interacting with patients began.
I often enjoy changing the stigma on dentistry and making people feel comfortable in any circumstance at the office. When I'm not taking care of patients you can usually find me working out or hanging out with my husband and my dog Odin.
Hi my name is Victoria. I'm from Tampa Florida, but I've been living in Colorado for 5 years now. I enjoy working out, traveling and hanging out with friends and family. I started my assistant journey at the end of 2022 and I've really been enjoying it so far. I chose dentistry because my mom is a hygienist and I always loved going to the dentist. I love to get to know our patients and make them feel comfortable, because that's what everyone deserves!
