Welcome Nina

Please Welcome Nina Engstrom! 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 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!

Please welcome our new awesome assistant Trisha!

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 The dance practices and wouldn't have it any other way.

In honor of administrative assistants week we would like to thank Cathy for her outstanding work.

Cathy has been in the dental field for more than 30 years, starting with this practice in 1984! She started out as a certified dental assistant then a year later went on to get her Expanded Duties Dental Assistant (EDDA) certificate. After assisting for more than 15 years, Cathy began at the front desk a few days a week along with her clinical work. The rest is history! After 30+ years with this practice, she now runs the front desk and helps outs in the back when she can.

Cathy and her husband Tom have been married for more than 30 years and have two beautiful girls. Her oldest lives in Maryland and got married in August, 2015. Her youngest lives and works in Grand County. Cathy is training to do another physique show, run the Boulder Boulder, hike a couple of fourteeners, and do the Tough Mudder. Tom and Cathy are also huge Broncos fans and have been season ticket holders for years now.

And as you can see Cathy knows how to have fun!

The Copeland Family Dental Cavity Defenders made a stop this week at Eldorado Elementary School for Tooth Talk in celebration of Children's Dental Health Month. A big thanks to Eldorado for welcoming us back for our third year! We dressed the kindergarteners up as little dentists, taught them about sugar, let them make play-doh molars, showed them proper brushing techniques, let them see a real filling being done and showed them the Crest Cavity Defenders movie. We shared our dental love with them by ensuring each of the 477 Eldorado students has a new toothbrush to get excited about their dental health!

Annually Copeland Family Dental supports a cause near and dear to our hearts.  It is the Brandon & Paul Foundation that supports educational programs for young drivers that focus on the importance of making good decisions and safe driving habits.  Paul and Brandon were killed in a one-car accident on High Grade Road in Jefferson County, Colorado on July 13, 2006.  The boys were not wearing their seat belts at the time of the accident.  Three other boys, who were in the back seat and wearing seat belts, survived with minor injuries.  We at Copeland Family Dental are proud sponsors of the annual Wall-Bop Golf Tournament held each July.  Together we can save lives!

Did you know that in the Denver metro area we are blessed with a great network of CSAs-Community Supported Agriculture.  How does a CSA work? It is a group of members who have pledged to support one or more local farms.   This means that growers and consumers then share the risks and benefits of fruit, veggie and herb production.  Clean healthy eating is a good step in the right direction towards total health-and this includes your oral health, too.  Drs. Amy and Heath Copeland love getting fresh organically grown food delivered to their neighborhood by Lora's Nourishing Produce.  They have learned to cook with a plethora of new foods, introduced their toddler to all sorts of delicious veggies, perfected the art of freezing extras and loved less trips to the grocery store.  The Drs. Copeland love supporting small business and their local CSA.

Drs. Heath and Amy Copeland put personal health at the top of their priorities. There is a growing body of evidence to support a link between dental health and general health.  Drs. Heath and Amy Copeland enjoy staying physically fit.  Recently Dr. Heath scored a 96% on his annual USAF Fitness Test and Dr. Amy is usually training for some triathlon, cycling or running event.  What is their secret?  Dr. Heath says it is being on a regular schedule with running and weight training.  He even does sit ups and push ups when they are on vacation and he is does not have access to a gym.  Dr. Amy says her secret is training with her good friend Laura at Bodhi Pilates. So find what motivates you, get out in our beautiful state of Colorado and get that heart pumping.
