We are so pleased to welcome Katie Cervantes to our practice following a recent move to Colorado from her home state of Iowa! Katie has been a dental hygienist for 2 years after attending Iowa State University and Carl Sandburg College. Katie has a passion for educating and teaching patients which enables patients to take control of their oral health. From the moment you meet her, it is evident that Katie loves what she does and the patients she cares for. She feels that if she can make a difference in someone’s life then she is truly living!
Katie is the mother of an amazing little boy and is very appreciative of her supportive family that includes her mother, her dad, a twin sister and an older sister (who just happens to be the mom of Katie’s adorable twin nephews). Moving to Colorado and away from family has been a challenge for this close knit bunch, but they are happy to see Katie and her son loving it here!
