Meet Our Dental Team – Lakewood, CO
Detail-Oriented Dental Service During Each Visit
From check-in to check-out, the focus on a stress-free, one-of-kind dentistry experience remains top-of-mind for our experienced and detailed-oriented team members. The moment dental patients walk through our dental office doors, they’re met by friendly faces who remain with them through their appointments, providing gentle cleanings while also answering questions and addressing concerns. The team at Dedicated Dentistry looks forward to meeting you, and we invite you to learn more about them in their bios below.
Gera, Office Manager
Gera brings 17+ years of experience to our team, all of which have been spent right here at Dedicated Dentistry! She started as a Dental Assistant where she first got to know our patients. She started working as a Treatment Coordinator when she started her family and was promoted in 2016 to Office Manager. She still very much enjoys going back and assisting when she is needed, however she enjoys catching up with patients while they wait for their appointments up front. Her mission is to make sure that our patients have a great experience from check-in to checkout.
A Lakewood native, she has a young son and daughter and two rambunctious cats named Stash and Tuxie. She likes to spend her weekends shopping, going to concerts, barbecuing, and enjoying the outdoors.
Maddie, Treatment Coordinator
To Maddie, dentistry isn’t just about teeth, but people! She loves the social aspect of her job, whether she’s greeting new patients, catching up with returning ones, or laughing with coworkers. She is originally from Lakewood, Colorado and graduated from Colorado State University with a Bachelors of Science degree in Health and Exercise Science.
Her favorite thing to do on the weekends is to spend time with friends and family, enjoy the outdoors, and watch sports. She is a big animal lover and likes to travel. She had the opportunity to study abroad in Florence, Italy and hopes to take another trip to Europe very soon!
Brenda, Registered Dental Hygienist
Brenda has an amazing 40+ years of experience in dentistry, and she has used that time to help people regain healthy smiles so they can always laugh confidently. She was trained at William Raney Harper College and has certifications in local anesthesia, soft tissue laser therapy, and CPR.
Originally from Minnesota, Brenda likes to cook, with soups, sauces, and desserts being her specialties. This is largely appreciated by her three grown children, and she currently lives with two dogs—a Bernese Mountain dog as well as a Golden Retriever. When she isn’t cuddling with them, she likes to be outdoors and relax near the water.
Rochelle, Dental Hygienist
Rochelle has an impressive 35+ years of dental experience, and she says that the best part of her job is helping people maintain their health while she gives them a confident smile. Being a native Coloradan, she graduated from Bear Creek High School and attended Idaho State University where she graduated with a Bachelors of Science degree in Dental Hygiene along with certifications in nitrous oxide and local anesthetic.
Rochelle wears a lot of hats outside of the dental office. She is a mother of two teenage boys, a pet owner, and a licensed real estate broker-owner. With her limited free time, she likes to hike, ski, watch sports, and attend Zumba classes.
Ronna, Dental Hygienist
Ronna has been helping patients improve their oral health while getting to know them and their families for over 40 years! She completed her dental hygiene training at Cypress College in Southern California and has certifications in local anesthesia, nitrous oxide sedation, and periodontal (gum) laser therapy.
Ronna has two grown boys, a granddaughter, as well as two grand puppies. She likes to garden and tries to travel whenever she can.
Gabe, Expanded Duty Dental Assistant
Originally from Cuba, Gabriel attended dental school there before coming to the United States in 2015. Today, he has been working in the field for over seven years. He loves getting to partner with such amazing coworkers and caring doctors here at Dedicated Dentistry! His bilingual (Spanish/English) prowess comes in handy often too.
Away from work, Gabriel loves hanging out with his large family, dancing, trying new restaurants, working out, cooking, and shopping. He’s also always up for watching TV, especially sports.
