Dental Assistant

Chris was born in New York but has lived in Colorado most of her life. Chris is a happy mom of two, a girl and a boy. She completed her training as an E.D.D.A. at PIMA in 2016.

Chris always loved going to the dentist as a child and brings her enthusiasm to both her coworkers and her patients. Her pleasant attitude and contagious smile always light up the office.

Her favorite part of her job is educating her patients about the importance of dental health. She enjoys restoring smiles to their full functionality and aesthetic beauty. Chris is incredibly proud of her work and the opportunity she has to continue learning about oral health.

In her free time, she likes to draw, be outdoors, read, watch movies and loves spending time with her husband, son, and daughter cooking and playing games.


Dental Hygienist

Jennifer is new to our Artistic Smiles team, and we are thrilled to have her! She brings six years of dental hygiene expertise to our office. Jennifer is a Colorado native. She grew up in Alamosa on a family-operated ranch. She is currently enjoying sharing her life with her young son in Northern Colorado.

Jennifer started her career with a Communications degree from Metro State University and, after talking with a relative about dentistry, decided to return to school to become a dental hygienist. She received her associate degree in dental hygiene in 2014 and has loved every minute of it.

The best part of Jennifer’s role is making a connection with her patients and educating them towards better dental hygiene.

In her free time, she teaches hip-hop dance and enjoys most outdoor activities, including camping and horseback riding.

She completed her training as an E.D.D.A at CU Denver and went on to complete her Hygiene certification at Community College at Denver. She graduated in 2005 and has been working in the community ever since.

Tonya went into dentistry because she likes helping people. Tonya enjoys getting to know her patients and building relationships and trust with those she cares for.

Dental Assistant

Tina attended Dental Assisting School in Iowa and pursued continuing education at the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Training. She has enjoyed working with Artistic Smiles since 2000.

The best part of her job is caring for our patients and making their dental experience as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. Developing an honest and long-lasting relationship with everyone who comes in for help is extremely important for her.

Tina takes pride in working with integrity, and she is always seeking to spread her enthusiasm to everyone around her (just like her amazing mother taught her).

Outside of dentistry, she teaches HIIT (high-intensity interval training) classes. She also enjoys hiking and spending time with her kids and husband.


Office Manager

Gina is a Colorado native and the mother of two beautiful little girls!

Gina fell into dentistry! While at her first job in a dental office, she had the opportunity to assist and watch a full-mouth reconstruction. This transformation was life-changing for her and encouraged her to learn and excel in the dental industry.

Alongside the enjoyment that comes from meeting new people, Gina loves guiding our patients to get the most from dental insurance benefits.

In her free time, she enjoys outdoor activities and keeping her girls and their Catahoula entertained. Gina has a large extended family from New York, and they enjoy family gatherings, especially during a NY Yankee game!
