Melissa, Office Manager
Melissa was born in Denver but raised in the San Francisco Bay Area near Napa. She moved back to Colorado with her husband and 3 children in 2009.
She has loved Dentistry since she was a child, and even had a Dental Play-doh Set! She completed her training and started as a Chairside Dental Assistant in January of 2011. In February of 2021, she was asked to take on the role of Office Manager, which is where you will now find her. When she was assisting, she loved being able to help patients get through their treatment smoothly and as comfortably as possible – especially our most fearful patients. Our office prides itself on having that “family feeling”.
Melissa says watching our patients and their families go through milestones and grow is one of her favorite things.
When she’s not at work, you will usually find her in her garden, with her dog and chickens, or hiking in our beautiful state. During the summertime, she spends many weekends working with her son and husband at Celtic/Scottish Festivals throughout the area.
She is excited to help everyone feel like a part of our Plum Creek Family!
