Krystal was born in Utah to a US Marine family and lived in several states prior to arriving in Colorado. She has her Master’s in Psychology and has extensive experience working with children with special needs. She decided to transition into pediatric dentistry, knowing she could still show a lot of love toward children. She wanted to broaden her experience and joined the RMPD team to gain that experience. Krystal has a very warm, loving, and caring way about her that puts parents and children at ease.

As our billing coordinator, Krystal is happy to help with any questions on your family’s account. She is a whiz with insurance companies and works with our parents to get the most out of their benefits. Krystal always wears a smile and never forgets a face.

Vanessa M
Front Office

A Colorado native, Vanessa grew up in a small town east of Colorado Springs. She spent her childhood playing outside until the street lights came on, in a town without a single traffic light. Friday night football and bonfires at the lake were entertainment in this tight-knit community.

Vanessa loves pediatric dentistry because she believes that children are the sweetest patients and she has the best conversations with all of the kiddos. Vanessa has experience in many areas of front office administration and is knowledgeable, professional, and kind.

Vanessa has an amazing, supportive husband and three adorable kiddos. They enjoy family activities including hiking, boating, and traveling.  On a recent family vacation to the ocean, Vanessa was brave enough to pet a live shark.

The dental field is a new adventure for Gina and she is very excited to begin a new career after being blessed to have spent the past 18 years as an early educator. Gina looks forward to working with the compassionate RMPD team and getting to know all the families we serve. She feels so inspired to join an organization dedicated to your child’s dental care.

Gina has been married to her high school sweetheart for 30 wonderful years. They have two beautifully made Christ centered daughters. Their oldest has been an apostolate to the impoverished, and will be temporarily living out her discipleship in Japan. Gina’s younger daughter is an energetic gymnast and more recently a marathon runner. Native to Colorado, the family values their time together. They enjoy all of the beauty that we call home, whether it be hiking to the top of a 14er or just hanging out in their own backyard.

Gina finds so much joy in life, just living in the moment.

Having grown up in South Dakota, Alyce still remembers lots of interesting facts about Mt Rushmore.  She has called Colorado home for almost twenty years and has over 10 years of experience in the dental field.  We are so thrilled to have Alyce’s experience, knowledge and all around awesomeness here at RMPD.  As our treatment coordinator and hospital liaison, Alyce can answer your questions and help navigate insurance benefits and patient costshares.

Alyce cherishes her family which includes her adored husband, a retired Navy veteran, 2 boys who both proudly serve in the Navy, 3 girls, 1 grandson, and her “favorite son” her pupper, Jack.  She loves family time, game nights, and cuddling with Jack and good book.

Colorado born and raised, Gina graduated from Thomas B. Doherty High School and Pikes Peak Community College. She was selected as one of the Mayors 100 Teens while in High School. She chose to continue her education beyond her dental assistant training, and completed her Associates Degree of Applied Science as well as EDDA and DANB certification.

Gina chose pediatrics because she believes that it is important to educate the youth to enhance oral hygiene and promote quality dental care, now and for generations to come. We are so proud that she brings her drive and dedication to our practice and shares her love with our patients and their families.

Gina is part of a large family, including a wonderful fiance’, four beautiful children, and 20 nieces and nephews. Her children, Catalina, ChyAnne, Michael Jr, and Caaliyah are the lights of her life and her free time is dedicated to spending time with the entire family.

She continued her education and received her certificate for Expanded Duties Dental Assisting. Ashley has been in all aspects of dentistry, however pediatrics is where she feels she truly belongs.

Born and raised in Houston, Courtney brings her old fashioned Southern manners and Texas charm to the RMPD team. Greeting everyone with a great big “Howdy!”, a genuine smile, and always a “Yes Ma’am” or two, Courtney was drawn to pediatrics when she began her dental career and worked in a busy pediatric dental practice in Texas before moving to beautiful Colorado. She has proven to be an invaluable addition to our clinical team and has focused on oral health presentations throughout Colorado Springs.

Courtney loves sweet tea and cheetah print (or is it actually leopard?). Make sure to check out her adorable shoes, and Courtney will remind you to stick to the tea at mealtimes. Water is always the best choice in between meals!
