My name is Simone. I was born and raised in northern Germany. I moved to the USA in 2005 and graduated from Kaskasia college in Illinois from the dental assisting program with perfect grades and am board certified.
The reason I chose this field is because it brings me great pleasure to help people, make them feel comfortable in the dental chair. I pay great attention to details and am very organized.
On the weekends you can find me in beautiful Boulder, hiking a mountain and having some tea downtown.

Many of you will recognize a familiar face at the front desk. That’s because our office manager, Maureen, worked at this practice for 15 years. Maureen began her dental career in 1993 as a dental assistant in Cherry Creek. After a hiatus to have children, she trained to become an expanded duties dental assistant from 2001 to 2009. She retired briefly to become a day trader for a few years; then reentered the dental field in 2013-this time at the office manager position.
She and husband of 26 years, Tye, are raising 2 wonderful kids, Tyler (23) and Brooke (21) in their Westminster home. Maureen’s interests include long weekends in Las Vegas, activities with her children, walking her dog Jax and watching lots of movies.
