He is originally from Missouri and graduated Magna Cum Laude from Pensacola Christian College in Florida. After college, he attended Temple University School of Dentistry in Philadelphia. He was fortunate to be able to have a U.S. Army scholarship throughout dental school. After dental school, he served as a Captain in the Army at Fort Benning, GA, for four years. Dr. Sampson counted it a privilege to be able to treat soldiers from various units including the 75th Ranger Regiment. He was also able to work extensively with specialists in all phases of dentistry.

Lori’s first job was working at her father’s Dairy Queen at the age of 9. Her responsibilities included hosing down the outside eating area, cleaning smudges off windows, and cutting a case of limes and a case of lemons to be used in the drinks that day. Her pay? An ice cream cone. Lori learned that focusing on doing something well creates joy.
Lori’s education includes studies in dental hygiene, computer science, and communication. She has completed over 30 continuing education classes a year to remain current. Although she scored 98% on both her national and state licensing exams, she is most proud of her 4th grade softball-throw blue ribbon. Lori is a sister and aunt, a women’s service advocate, a green thumb, a family support volunteer, a librarian, a genealogist, a food bank champion, and a final four attendee. Finally, Lori is a baseball fan who does dental hygiene, in that order.
“I am lucky to do what I do and find great satisfaction in helping people find health.”

Haley - Dental Assistant
Dina has been an Expanded Duties Dental Assistant since 2004. She has been at Smile Designers since 2006. Most people don’t know that Dina was a Medical Assistant for many years before starting her dental career. I truly believe that’s what gives her that extra love and compassion that the patients feel when they are in her dental chair.
When Dina isn’t drinking coffee and giving her patients a great and comfortable experience, she spends her time with her Husband, niece Jasmina, and sweet daughter, Ella.
Any special requests while at your appointment? It’s always “no problem” for our Dina.

Being a Colorado Native, Amanda enjoys utilizing all the great entertainment Colorado has to offer with her son and wonderful Husband. If they’re not busy camping, hiking, or ATVing, you will find her snuggled with her 3 fur babies (who are her life). She looks forward to meeting new patients and considers herself lucky to get the opportunity to serve our Longmont community.
Ann is originally from Long Island, but moved to CO a little over 20 years ago to raise her two sons. Now that they are mostly “all grown up,” she has a lot more time to pursue her many diverse interests.
