Meet The Oral Surgery Staff
I have had the pleasure of working at the office since the summer of 2012. I have been in the dental field for almost 12 years, and have been able to learn about several areas of interest, from assisting the doctor, to scheduling and financial coordination, and more! I look forward to meeting each new family that comes into our office, and I enjoy helping them navigate the sometimes tricky, and challenging, world of dental insurance. My goal is for each person to feel that they fully understand their benefits and options when it comes to the financial portion of their surgery.
I was born and raised in Texas, and I moved to Colorado with my husband and son in 2009. We love all the activities that Colorado has to offer, not to mention the actual seasons! Our favorite activity is taking our Jeep all over the Colorado mountains to explore the beauty that surrounds us.
Fun Fact: My husband and I are high school sweethearts
Patient Coordinator and Professional Relations
I am so lucky to be a part of the team, I started working at the office since 2013. I have been in the dental field for over 15 years and love every aspect of it! I am one of the first points of contact for our patients when they call to schedule an appointment; I also coordinate professional relations in our office. Coming to work is something that I look forward to every day, we truly are a family here and we love to treat our patients as part of that family when they come in.
I have lived in Colorado since 1994, I have one son and when I am not at work I love spending time with my family, traveling, running and checking out new restaurants in the area. I am truly a foodie at heart (hence the running).
I started with the practice in 2013, and have enjoyed learning about all aspects of surgical assisting. I earned my DAANCE certification in 2014. This certification is nationally recognized, and is specifically designed for oral and maxillofacial assistants. I enjoy helping patients understand their recommended treatment, and helping them feel at ease in our office. I have a passion for learning new things, and I love to explore all there is to learn about the dental field.
I am originally from Texas, but was raised in Colorado. I enjoy heading up to the mountains for hiking, camping, and backpacking with friends. In my spare time I enjoy reading all different genres of books…except westerns.
Fun Fact: I don’t eat vegetables
I have worked at the office since 2008, in many different parts of the office. My passion is surgical assisting, and I enjoy helping with surgeries that involve our younger patients. My goal is to make their surgical experience as smooth and comforting as possible, so they can always have a healthy relationship with their dentist or oral surgeon. I am DAANCE certified, and continue to attend continuing education courses to further my knowledge of the oral surgery field.
I was born in Kentucky, and moved to Colorado in middle school. I love to travel, and have been to many different countries. My favorite destination is Grand Cayman. I enjoy hiking and jeeping, with my husband and daughter.
Fun Fact: I love interior decorating
I am new to our office, but not new to the oral surgery field. I have been in the dental field for 20 years, and I have enjoyed surgical assisting for the last 6 years. I am excited to join the team here at the office, I look forward to earning my DAANCE certification soon. My favorite part about surgical assisting is getting to know each patient individually, and helping them through what can be a stressful situation. My goal is for each patient to leave the office feeling like they were cared for by a close friend or family member.
I have lived in Colorado for most of my life, and I love spending time in the outdoors. My husband, children, and I love to go camping and boating. I can always enjoy a great book, and I also like to work in the garden.
Fun Fact: I enjoy competing in Spartan races
Gloria Scheduling Coordinator/Surgical Assistant
I am thrilled to be a part of the great team here at Williams Dental Implant & Oral Surgery. I have been in the oral surgery field for about 6 years, with my specialties ranging from assisting the doctor, to helping with insurance and billing. As the scheduling coordinator it is my goal to make sure our guests are scheduled and seen efficiently, and in a time frame that works best for each person.
In my spare time I enjoy spoiling my dog Sebastian, and spending time with friends and family. I love all the different dining options that the Denver area has to offer, and I’m always up for trying something new.
Fun Fact: I love to collect makeup, but I don’t always wear it
