Meet the Castle Rock Dental Team
Krissi, Dental Assistant
Krissi has been working in the dental field since 2016, and she joined our team in 2018. She says the best thing about her job is working with a great team to help children become comfortable at the dentist and learn to care for their smiles. Krissi is a native of Cleveland, MO, and she completed on the job training to learn how to offer exceptional care for patients of all ages. She is also CPR certified. When she isn’t hard at work helping kids smile, Krissi enjoys spending time with family and friends, hiking, fishing, camping and taking her dog to the lake to play fetch. She loves living in Castle Rock now, but she has lived in a number of fun places, including Juneau, Alaska!
Gladys, Dental Assistant
Gladys may be new to our practice, but she’s been working in dentistry for over five years so far. She really loves chatting with our young patients and being able to change their tears into smiles over time! Education-wise, she studied at both Metropolitan State University and California State University. She is trained in OSHA, X-rays, CPR, and AED. Originally from Littleton, CO, her family consists of two parents, a sister, and a loving husband – they actually first met when she was just 14! She spends her free time outside of work practicing archery, going to the gym, and spending quality time with her hubby and dog.
Tessa, Dental Assistant
Tessa first joined our team in February of 2019, and we’re happy to have her here at Castle Rock Smiles! After attending Utah State University, she pursued her dental education at Colorado Dental Assisting School. She has her CDA license and is certified in CPR, BLS, OSHA, and X-rays. She loves working with such a great team and being able to encourage our special patients to smile brighter while in the treatment chair. Outside of work, Tessa has proud parents, an older brother, and a dog named Sprite. Her hobbies include watercolor painting, taking care of plants, and spending quality time outdoors. She’s also proud to be part cyborg! She has Type 1 Diabetes and wears an insulin pump and continuous glucose monitor.
Casey, Office Manager
Casey is originally from Sarasota, FL and has over 2 decades of experience in dentistry. With so many years in a dental practice under her belt, Casey adds a wealth of knowledge to our dental practice. She says the best aspect of her job is getting to know our patients and the community. Casey’s family includes her husband, 2 children and 2 stepchildren, 1 grandson, and 2 dogs. Outside of dentistry, Casey enjoys music, singing, dancing, being active and traveling to see her son who is in the army.
Sarah, Treatment Coordinator
Sarah is a relatively new addition to our team, but she already loves getting to talk with all of the kids and seeing them smile so brightly throughout their visits! She is a true Colorado native and is originally from the Littleton area. She studied at the Academy for Dental Assisting Careers and is a Certified Dental Assistant. When she isn’t hard at work at the practice, her hobbies include camping, going to concerts, cheering on the Broncos, spending quality time with her nephews, and taking her dogs to the dog park.
