Meet the Team
Dr. Vincenzo Artino wanted to make Lakewood Complete Dentistry a truly special dental office, and in order to do that, he needed to put together a special team. That’s why he took the time to hand select a group of dental hygienists, assistants, and administrators he trusts to deliver truly world-class care. With them, scheduling will be easy, your questions will be answered promptly, and your financial options will be clearly explained. To start getting to know our wonderful team, read on below.
Kris - Front Office Manager
Kris has been working in the dental field for an impressive 30 years and counting! She got her start as an assistant and then rose up the ranks to our front office manager. Originally a West Coast girl, she’s happy to now be settled here in Colorado. She and her husband have four kids and four grandkids. Her hobbies outside of work include reading, baking cookies, and playing a mean game of Texas Hold ‘Em.
Tiffaney – Dental Hygienist
Tiffaney was born and raised in Austin, TX, but Colorado’s snow-peaked mountains started calling her name before too long. She has been working in the dental field since 2009 and brings a fresh attitude and passion to the table, as well as plenty of dedication to stay on the cutting edge of the latest oral health care research. Outside of work, she enjoys helping animals and volunteers monthly at the local shelter. She also spends her time outdoors with her boyfriend Randall and her Yorkie Theodore Rex.
Alison – Dental Hygienist
Alison was born and raised in Colorado. She lived on the coasts for quite some time but is now happy to be back in this amazing state once more and working at such an excellent dental office! She looks forward to seeing old faces and meeting new patients soon. Whenever she isn’t busy at work, she spends quality time hanging out with her wonderful husband and her three sweet daughters.
Catherine – Expanded Duty Dental Assistant
Catherine has been working as a dental assistant for two decades now! She is a Colorado native and has lived here for the majority of her life. She loves working with people and being able to help make the time they spend in this dental office enjoyable. She feels lucky to be part of such a wonderful staff! Outside of work, she loves spending time with her adorable Pug, Bogart.
Taylor – Dental Assistant
Taylor is originally from Arvada and is a New Year’s Eve baby! She studied at the University of Northern Colorado before joining our team one year ago. She loves expanding her knowledge and helping patients at our practice achieve pristine oral health and beautiful smiles. When she isn’t at our office, she enjoys wake surfing and playing with her two dogs.
Adam – Administrative Assistant
Adam is a new face on our team, but his love for making a positive impact on our patients’ quality of life makes him a perfect fit. He is originally from Marine on St. Croix, MN and attended college at the University of Minnesota. Outside the office, he enjoys cooking, reading, camping, hiking, skiing, and traveling. One interesting thing you may not know about Adam is that he once drove from NYC to Denver in less than 30 hours!
Colleen – Dental Hygienist
It has been an exceptionally positive experience here at Lakewood Complete Dentistry since I joined this team in 2020. I feel truly honored to be working with such an incredible and talented team that provides the best care to our patients. It is great to know that each one of us here is extremely passionate about dentistry and strives to ensure that every single patient has the best experience in our office. In my personal time, I enjoy spending time with my family. “It’s not what we have in life, but who we have in our life that matters.”
