As a front desk scheduling coordinator, it is my desire and passion to serve our patients, make them feel welcome, and show them how important they are to us at Parker Orthodontics. I take care of our patients’ scheduling needs and make sure to answer any questions I can. I love our patients, encouraging people and making them smile is what I do best! I have worked with Dr. Collins for 25+ years and enjoy his professionalism as well as his caring and genuine way with our patients. It is so obvious to all of us here at Parker Orthodontics that he loves what he does.
I have been married to my wonderful husband Tom for 40+ years! We have two beautiful daughters and two amazing granddaughters. They are my joy!. I also love music, great books and life in general. It's a wonderful life!.
As a Front Desk Coordinator, I help the patients with all their questions and schedule their appointments. Our patients’ comfort is my number-one priority, and I enjoy doing anything I can to ensure their experience with us is as positive and fulfilling as possible. Dr. Collins, as well as the rest of our team, takes great pride in the work we do and the results we achieve.
I love spending time and doing outside activities with my family. I am a workout freak and really enjoy running. My husband is a softball player, and we like spending time at the fields with friends. We especially enjoy watching our boys play sports.
I am in charge of all aspects of accounts receivable. Making sure patients are comfortable with their payments and keeping track of their insurance is a big part of my job. I am also a treatment coordinator who greets the new patients and gets them on the road to a better smile. What I love most is seeing patients at their initial consultation and watching them grow and change over the years. Dr. Collins loves to help people achieve the self-confidence they deserve by giving them a “smile for a lifetime.” We all have a really great time here and hope our patients do as well.
I have a wonderful husband, four children who keep me on my toes, two dogs, and a bearded dragon. My favorite activities are hanging with my family, hiking, biking, going to the dog park, and eating good food.
As our office manager, I make sure our patients’ experience with us is exceptional and that Parker Orthodontics runs smoothly for our patients, our team, and Dr. Collins. I deal with a little bit of everything and it keeps each day interesting. I can even be found assisting in the clinic when I’m needed. Dr. Collins loves what he does. This shows in the quality and exceptional care he gives his patients and his team.
My husband and I have three children (we all had orthodontic treatment from Dr. Collins) and nine wonderful grandchildren. I grew up in Michigan but have enjoyed Colorado for the last 25+ years. I am very involved in my church, love to travel, play the piano, swim, walk, and bike.
I have been Dr. Collins’s lab technician for the past 16 years, and I make the majority of our patients’ appliances, like retainers and expanders. Because I spend most of my time in the lab, I don’t get to interact with our patients very much, but I do enjoy knowing what a difference we make in our patients’ lives by giving them a beautiful smile. Our patients are so appreciative of the quality of work we do, especially when they get their braces off and see their new smile for the very first time. That makes all the hard work worth it.
I grew up in Utah, have lived in Washington, D.C., and Maryland, and have happily settled in the beautiful state of Colorado. I have one amazing son with whom I love spending time. I also enjoy traveling, bicycling, and going for walks, and I can’t wait to live on the beach in the Carribean one day.
I work chairside with Dr. Collins as one of his orthodontic technicians. I enjoy getting to know our patients and seeing all the changes, from start to finish, in their teeth and in their life. Changing their smile really makes a positive difference for their outlook on life. I love learning about all the new technology and the constantly changing mechanics we get to use to make our patients’ smiles better. Dr. Collins is top-of-the-line and makes orthodontics fun and interesting. He really is an amazing doctor.
Outside the office I enjoy spending time with my fun, cute daughter and our silly chocolate lab. We often go skiing and snowboarding, and I love to hear live music.
I am the front desk Queen Bee! I stay busy all day keeping our patients and parents happy. I want each of our patients to be as comfortable as possible when they’re in the office, and I always try to make them laugh. Sometimes I even sing! There is really nothing I don’t like about working here with our team and Dr. Collins, and I can’t imagine wanting to do anything else.
I have been married to my best friend for 24 years. We have two kids and two dogs we love to spend time with. I also enjoy going on walks, reading, and dancing. My favorite things are singing and telling jokes!
I have been an orthodontic assistant for more than 28 years and have loved every minute of it! I’ve gotten to see so many wonderful smiles develop as well as increased self-confidence. It has truly been amazing. I enjoy talking with our patients and getting to know all about what’s going on in their lives. Working with Dr. Collins has been a great experience. He’s a perfectionist and I love that!
My husband and I have been married for more than 25 years. We love spending time with our three children and three dogs . My favorite hobby is horseback riding, but I just started fly fishing and can’t get enough of it!
As one of our clinical assistants, I help patients during their visits. I’m often found working chairside, supporting Dr. Collins while talking with the patient. I love those conversations! Patients always have something new happening in their life, or an adventure to tell me about. These conversations create a friendship, and I love helping my friends develop the beautiful smile they’ve always wanted. The look on a patient’s face, the day the braces come off, is priceless. No matter how often I see it, I’m thrilled.
I grew up in Ohio and am definitely enjoying my new home in Colorado. I’m an outdoor enthusiast and enjoy doing almost everything life has to offer. I have a wonderful son and daughter, along with a Collie named Sadie.
I keep track of patients’ orthodontic records, to ensure everything is well organized and properly arranged. I’m also a clinical assistant in our practice, so I help patients and Dr. Collins during orthodontic procedures. I make sure he has everything he needs. At the same time, I’m checking to make sure our patient is comfortable. At the end of a visit, I provide any necessary home-care instructions. I truly love my job and I love working with people. Seeing the transformation in a person as their new smile developes is so rewarding!
I grew up in the Ukraine and spent 17 years in Seattle. Then I escaped the rain and moved to wonderful Colorado. I love being with my family, especially traveling, camping, and watching my kids play sports. I’m also active with my church and in serving our community.
I am one of our orthodontic assistants. That means I help Dr. Collins during various procedures. I sit chairside, supporting him and talking with our patient about what we’re doing. Working in a positive, fun practice, where everything we do is focused on making our patients and their families happy, is fulfilling. I love talking with people and learning about their lives. Everyone has great stories to share and I learn a lot from them. We laugh together, too. Helping people I care about as they make a positive, lasting change in their smile, makes me love what I do.
I grew up in Vermont and moved to Colorado a couple years ago. I still go back to Vermont to see family a couple times a year. My favorite pastimes are trying new restaurants and watching sports. I also like traveling, skiing, and hiking.
When I wake in the morning, I’m excited to come to the office. I know it’s going to be an interesting day, filled with wonderful conversations and happy smiles from patients and parents. As a clinical assistant, I get to work directly with people during their visits. I offer chairside assistance, and act as a second pair of hands for Dr. Collins while telling our patients what’s happening. I’m a people person and enjoy meeting patients and building friendships with them. Seeing the finished, beautiful smiles on my friends’ faces makes me happy.
I grew up in Ft. Collins, so I enjoy all the typical Colorado stuff: rock climbing, snowshoeing, hiking, and camping, to name a few. I have a large family and love spending time with them.
