Nina moved here from Wisconsin just about 20 years ago. She has worked in the dental field for over 18 years now, starting in a front office position, next hygiene assisting, then getting her assisting/EDDA certification. Her insatiable appetite to continue to learn and passion to help people led her to make the switch to becoming a dental hygienist and has just over 10 years practicing dental hygiene. She is an empathetic compassionate caregiv...er who looks forward to building long relationships with you and your families.
Nina is married and has two young active boys that keep her busy!! She loves the outdoors-hiking, snowboarding, running, spending time with her family and friends and practicing yoga in her free time. Many of you already know Nina as she has been with the practice longer than the Copelands-she filled in for Dr. Countryman for many years! We are so excited to have her here in the office fulltime!
Trisha is a Colorado native from Arvada. She earned a bachelors degree in biology from Lindenwood University in Missouri, hoping to one day continue on to dental school. After having two beautiful girls, she decided being a mom was what she was meant to do, but Trisha still loves the dental field. She has been a dental assistant/EDDA since 2001.
When she is not in the office, she enjoys skiing, hockey, hiking, and anything else outdoors. Trisha spends most of her time driving her kids to hockey and to dance practices and wouldn't have it any other way.
