I think that orthodontics is fun! I love seeing our patients move through the treatment process from start to finish, and watching them grow and their personalities emerge. Every patient, and every family, is important to us, and we love the long-term relationships that we develop with those we care for. Even the most reticent patients bloom in our care and are soon talking and laughing with us, which makes our team proud of what we do. My duties have me in the back office. I assist Dr. Gregston as he cares for our patients, I take X-rays and dental impressions, and I disinfect and sterilize our equipment and treatment areas. My work is challenging and interesting.
Away from work, you’ll find me spending time with my spouse of 14 years, our two beautiful daughters, and our two dogs. We spend a lot of time together as a family and love going snowboarding. I keep fit and enjoy running in marathons. Oh, and I love pugs!
New Patient Coordinator
We change smiles, and lives, every day! Dr. Gregston and our team are committed to not only giving our patients excellent oral health and straight teeth, but getting to know each patient and the family as individuals. Being there when new patients learn about orthodontics and how we’re going to help them develop a healthy, beautiful new smile, and seeing their excitement, is wonderful. I assist Dr. Gregston at a patient’s first appointment, while treatment options are discussed and the patient and the parents learn about what will work best for the patient’s specific needs. I also work with our families to make financial arrangements that work with their budgets. We believe that every patient should be able to afford orthodontic care when they need it. My days are busy and I love that.
I return home each night to my husband with a smile on my face. I’ve an adorable daughter and four amazing grandchildren, too. I love God, hiking, reading, and grand-kiddo kisses!
Financial and Marketing Coordinator
It’s difficult to narrow down my favorite part of my job, but I’ll have to say that the day that a patient’s treatment is completed, the braces are removed, and they walk up to you with a gigantic smile on their face, is up there. Our patients are enthusiastic about their orthodontic treatment, especially as they start seeing the changes in their teeth and appearance. You can watch their self-esteem grow and patients become more confident and outgoing. It’s an honor to be able to provide such a positive change! My work here involves handling our insurance billing and management of patient accounts. I also am at the front desk for check-ins and check-outs, scheduling, and am in charge of our marketing, too.
I keep busy here at work and at home, as well, where my husband and I are the proud parents of a new daughter and a Corgi. In what little free time I have, I enjoy reading, hiking, and spending time with friends and loved ones.
Working with our patients is, far and away, the best part of my workday. Each patient is so incredible and they come in here just bursting with excitement to tell us about what’s been happening since their last visit. They’re always enthusiastic to see Dr. Gregston and show him how great their teeth are looking and to learn about the progress they’ve made. I love being around their energy! I work chairside with our doctor, as he cares for each patient. I also sterilize and disinfect treatment areas, instruments, and equipment, and I take the required dental X-rays and impressions, too. I love working in the dental field and am especially glad to be working hands-on with our patients.
In my free time, I love to be with my husband and children. I also enjoy being outdoors in the mountains, and reading a good book.
Seeing the changes in a patient’s life as their smile transforms makes my days here a joy. It is amazing to be a part of that process and to watch a patient grow as an individual. Not only does their appearance transform, but so does their way of interacting with the world. They move with a happier step and are more proactive about engaging. Of course, they’re also much more likely to smile, too! My job duties are focused in our treatment areas, where I assist Dr. Gregston chairside, take the necessary dental impressions and X-rays, and I sterilize and disinfect following an appointment.
Away from work, you’ll likely find me spending my time around horses. I have a passion for animals, enjoy fly fishing, and love working in my garden. Spending special time with my husband and family is also a strong priority for me.
Seeing a patient’s confidence grow, as their new smile develops, is amazing. Here, because we form such tight connections to our patients, we’re helping our friends. We’re creating amazing smiles and great oral health, which means a better life for them, no matter where they go. Getting to know a patient and their family, laughing with them and sharing in their excitement as treatment progresses, is a part of each day in our practice. Our team members love that about our work and it shows. We’re close-knit, we laugh a lot, and we’re committed to providing exemplary orthodontic care. I spend my days with our patients, whether I am taking dental X-rays and impressions or assisting Dr. Gregston as he cares for a patient. After a treatment is finished, I sterilize everything so we’re ready for the next appointment.
In my personal life, I keep busy. I love to go hiking, camping, and spelunking, and I’m an actress and model, as well. I love to sing and dance, devour chocolate, and play with my two cats.
That day when a patient has completed their treatment and we’ve removed their braces, that moment when they first see their beautiful new smile, is so rewarding! Everyone here celebrates with the patient: We know they’ve put in some hard work and had to be very patient while their teeth were straightened, and we’re very proud of them. At the same time, we’re proud of our efforts, as well, because we know we’ve helped someone we care about and we’ve made positive changes in their life as a result of our work. You’ll usually find me in our treatment areas, taking the necessary impressions and dental X-rays, assisting Dr. Gregston chairside, and sterilizing and disinfecting our equipment.
Outside of work, you’ll find me enjoying all that our area has to offer, from the winter sports to the amazing weather. I love Castle Rock and Parker and am glad to live in this incredible region.
I love starting new relationships with patients and parents. The smiles that leave our office after the braces come off are amazing and the confidence that the patient exudes is so neat. Being a part of that process, watching the patients’ self-esteem and comfort with the world grow, and seeing their excitement, are all rewarding. As Treatment Coordinator, I assist Dr. Gregston, the patient, and the parents at the first appointment. We work together to develop an individual treatment path based on the patient’s specific orthodontic needs and we talk about the options for reaching optimal oral health and a beautiful smile in a timely, affordable manner. My other job duties including working at our front desk and scheduling.
Outside of work, you’ll often find me hiking and enjoying our incredible mountains. I love the Denver Broncos, and am a devoted Christian who enjoys spending time with friends and loved ones.
