The majority of our staff have worked together for more than 15 years, some 20 years and more. Which is why we truly see our staff members as more than just a team of highly skilled individuals, but rather like a close-knit family. Together our staff is dedicated to providing a warm, caring and friendly experience to the many wonderful people we're also glad to know as our patients.
Rhonda ...has been our front office manager since 1989…in other words for more than 28 years. Although born in Colorado Springs, she grew up in Fremont, a small town in Nebraska. She has two wonderful children, 5 very special grandkids and two dogs. Family time and scrapbooking are her favorite pastimes and the Chicago Bears are her favorite football team. Go Bears!!
Laura L. - As an almost 24-year staff veteran, Laura moved from dental assistant to office manager several years ago. She now also assists patients in managing their accounts. Although born in a small town in Iowa, she grew up in Colorado, so we still consider her a native. Married for 35 years, Laura has three beautiful daughters and four amazing grandchildren, including (2) 2½-year-old girls and 1 ½-year-old twins! She loves traveling to spend time with her children and is also a football fan!
Laura R. ...has been practicing Dental Hygiene for 35 years; in fact, she and Dr. Gibbs graduated from CNCC together. Ever passionate about dental health, Laura traveled to Guatemala in 2010 to teach dental care to villagers there and planned a trip to visit Honduras in January 2013 to share her knowledge there. Laura has been married 28 years and has two adult daughters as well as two grandsons.
Michaela ...is our newest, (and youngest), staff member, after growing up as a patient with us, we couldn’t be happier to have her join our team! Michaela graduated from CNCC in 2011 with her BS in Dental Hygiene and has been a hygienist for 7 years. She is married with a beautiful 8-month-old baby boy. Michaela enjoys spending time with her son, outdoors and is a big Broncos fan!
Sheryl - Graduating with a degree in Dental Hygiene from CNCC in 1988, Sheryl has been practicing for more than 29 years, of which the past 24 have been spent working with Dr. Gibbs. Away from work her hobbies include baking, exploring new cookbooks, scrapbooking, going to movies and traveling with her husband, Mike. Oh, and we can’t forget mentioning the love she has for her adorable Golden Retriever, Jack.
Kathy - Born in northeast Nebraska and raised on a farm, Kathy is the middle child of five siblings. She moved to Colorado in 1977 after graduating from the University of Nebraska. Kathy has been a Dental Hygienist for Dr. Gibbs for over 16 years now. Kathy has 3 grown children, 5 grandsons and 4 granddaughters….and as she puts it, “Life is good!”
Patty - As a Nebraska native, Patty attended University of Nebraska College of Dentistry where she met her husband in addition to earning her BS in Dental Hygiene. This happy 36 year transplant to Colorado has been practicing in the only field she ever considered and enjoys her part-time association career with Dr. Gibbs. Patty spends her free time reading, cooking, collecting artist bears and being far too involved in the life of her kitty, Leo.
Paige ...has been with our practice for the past 19 years as a dental assistant. Born and raised locally, this Colorado native admits that she was inspired to pursue a career in dentistry because of her love for a childhood dentist and orthodontist. She attended Centaurus HS and PIMA Medical Institute and earned her EDDA from CU School of Dentistry. Now married for over 17 years, she enjoys traveling and entertaining her Boston terrier, Bentley, but her favorite thing is Mickey Mouse!
Bobbie - Although Bobbie is a newer member of our team, she has been a dental assistant for over 20 years and has been a great addition to our team. She is from Colorado and is married with a 20-year-old daughter. As horse lovers, she and her daughter spend a lot of hours at the barn for her daughter’s riding and jumping classes.
