As our Office Manager, Tracy is the glue that holds us together. She is from The Great Lakes, but was drawn to the beauty of Colorado and all it has to offer. Tracy started her dental career in 2003 and an integral puzzle piece to our ever-growing practice. She has a passion for family, laughter, and patient advocacy.
Outside of the office, Tracy loves spending time with her 2 energetic boys, wonderful husband and 2 dogs.
“I believe it is important to build relationships with our patients in order to work through treatment concerns and create financial plans.”
Financial and Treatment Coordinator

Erika is a Colorado native and enjoys the winter months cozy by the warm fireplace and spends the summer months being outdoors. She enjoys camping, jet skiing, BBQing with family, working on home improvement projects. Erika has been married for over 20+ years with 2 grown children, 6 cats, 2 dogs….and 1 cricket.

Cindy arrived with a long and diverse history in the dental field from an Expanded Function Dental Assistant to holding an Associates Degree in
Dental Laboratory Technology. Because our Cindy loves a challenge, she simultaneously, single-handedly owned and operated a Specialty Bakery Boutique while working full time. While you are here you will notice our Colorado Native assisting you with your dental insurance benefits while coordinating your needed treatment.
We are ecstatic Cindy chose to join our team here at Smile Designers. It’s safe to say she has found her “niche”.

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 achieved over 30 continuing education classes a year to remain current. Although she scored 98% on both my national and state licensing exams, She is most proud of her 4th grade soft-ball-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.”
Sarah started her dental career 2008 when she was a receptionist at an endodontic office in Fort Collins. She also dental assisted for the same office for 4 years.
She wanted to further her education and get more hands on experience in dentistry so she attended dental hygiene college in Cheyenne, WY and graduated the second highest in her class in 2013. She loves her job and her patients.
When you meet Sarah, she will work with you to assess your dental hygiene needs, be an encouraging coach for your dental hygiene at home, be a gentle hand when providing your treatment, and equip you with easy to understand information and advice.
When she’s not at work, Sarah loves spending time with her husband Nick and 3 Maltese dogs: Maverick, Diesel and Gypsy. They are frequently out walking or riding bikes around their neighborhood in Milliken. She likes being a homebody but the beach is where she loves to be. Her current favorite location to travel is Isla Mujeres, Mexico and she can’t wait for her next vacation.
Sarah is so happy to be part of the team at Smile Designers and can’t wait to see you for your next preventive care visit.[/caption]

If you have been to our practice you will know Danielle. She had been part of our team since 1998. That’s right she has been with us for 20 years! Danielle hasn’t just treated your toothaches, she has cried with you, laughed with you, and watched your children grow as she has with her own two daughters.

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 request while at your appointment? It’s always “no problem” for our Dina.
