Our Team

Our clinic is driven by compassion, honesty and excellence. We understand every child has different needs and we work endlessly to ensure your child is not only comfortable in our office, but enjoys the entire dental process.   We believe that trust is the first essential step in building a relationship with your healthcare provider. We don’t consider our patients customers, but rather a part of our extended family. Lastly, it is our mission to provide the highest quality of dental care in the safest environment. Dr. Mike and his staff have extensive training and the office has more than 50 years of shared dental experience.  We are blessed and privileged to serve this wonderful community!

THE ADMINISTRATIVE TEAM

Diana

Diana has worked in pediatric dentistry over 4 years. She started as an expanded functions dental assistant and has transitioned to the front office overseeing all day-to-day operations. Prior to dentistry she served our country for 8 years in the Army where she also met her husband. She is a devoted mother to 4 beautiful children that keep her very busy. In short, Diana is an unbelievable multi-tasker and will work endless hours to make sure your child’s dental visit is the very best. She loves country music and almost everything Chicago, especially “Da Bears.”

DeAnna

DeAnna has been in the medical field for many years, but is relatively new to pediatric dentistry. Her quiet voice is balanced by her big heart and smile. DeAnna spends most of her time taking care of patient’s needs and is the designated patient advocate for the office. She lives in Castle Rock and enjoys Colorado to the fullest. When not at work, she enjoys spending time with her grandkid, kids, and husband. She loves love riding dirt bikes, kayaking, fishing, hiking, biking, camping and quilting just to name a few.

 

THE CLINICAL TEAM

Kari

Kari grew up in Colorado Springs and lives right here in Castle Rock with her husband and 3 beautiful kids. Kari previously spent time in general dentistry and orthodontics before moving to pediatrics. In fact, her 3 kids were patients of Dr. Mike’s before she decided to join the “CRKD” team. Some of her passions include soccer, the Broncos and college basketball. She is also very involved in local activities, sports, and schools. The office is extremely fortunate to have someone like Kari and it would be a minor miracle if you escaped one of her appointments without a smile on your face.

 

 

Kyli

Kyli grew up in Florissant, a small town outside Woodland Park. After high school she attended Pikes Peak Community College and completed a competitive dental assisting program where she learned how to restore teeth. Kyli is not only gifted at restoring and creating beautiful teeth, but she has an amazing rapport with children and can explain complicated procedures in a simple manner. She and her husband are currently the proud parents of a cat named Chloe, a dog named Kali and a rabbit named Winnie. It’s quite possible that she’ll have more animals than the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo one day.

 

 

 

Tawnya

TawnyaTawnya is a Colorado native and lives in Castle Rock. She joined our team with over 18 years of dental assisting experience and is an amazing restorative assistant. She is the mother of 5 kids, 3 dogs, 1 cat and a lizard. In addition, she is the vice president of My Fairy Dawg Mother Rescue. You are likely to find her at a variety children’s sporting events cheering on her kids, shopping at Kings Soopers or at an 80s hair band concert. Her quick wit, contagious laugh and compassionate personality are just a few reasons so many people love her.
