Our Staff

Nina
Dental Hygienist

I moved to Colorado back in 1994 from a little city called Tokyo, as in Japan! I grew up as an “Airforce brat” and honestly loved the life the military afforded our family. My husband and I have three cats who are our babies. Most days of the week, you can find me dancing the Argentine Tango, which is how I met my husband. We enjoy it so much that we have recently started to dance competitively!

As for me, nothing beats the great pleasure of working as a dental hygienist…I absolutely love it. I have been a dental hygienist for 5 years. I am looking forward to working with all of the wonderful patients here at the office. I find it so important to build long standing relationships with patients so that we can have a level of trust, camaraderie and a bit of fun.

I was born and raised in Grand Junction. Growing up in Colorado, I loved to go hiking and my favorite place to go as a kid was Hanging Lake in Glenwood Springs.

I loved seeing the changes in my smile and wanted to be able to provide that enjoyment to others.

I just moved out to Denver and love it here. I plan on seeing all the beautiful sights of Colorado, going camping and hiking, and learning to ski. I love music and can’t wait to see a concert at Red Rocks. My boyfriend and I got a puppy six months ago and love to take him hiking with us. I love being able to work with patients to help them get the dental treatment they deserve.
