Colleen - Dental Hygenist
Colleen graduated from the University of Oklahoma as a Registered Dental Hygienist. She has been a RDH for over 25 years and has been a very active part of dental hygiene and its progress in the state of Oklahoma. She served as the President of the Oklahoma Dental Hygienists’ Association and is a lifetime member of the American Dental Hygienists’ Association.
Colleen’s greatest pleasure is forming relationships with our patients, not just cleaning their teeth every six months but really getting to know them, their interests, and their families. She enjoys teaching others about dental hygiene, how to improve their home care and how oral health can improve their overall health. After our patient leave her chair, they feel like they’ve had a visit with a good friend and have also received a thorough cleaning.
On Colleen’s free time she enjoys gardening and dancing. She also enjoys being outdoors walking her sweet dog Carmelita.

Sierra started her dental assisting career three years ago and within the last year has began to work with insurance verification and filing. Sierra is a 2013 graduate of Mannford High School. The best thing about Sand Springs Family Dentistry is we serve more than just Sand Springs, and we love that Sierra has the ability to connect with all our patients, no matter if they are Mannford Pirates, Cleveland Tigers or Sandites. She truly has a passion to be involved in the community and serve others both inside and outside the office. Sierra enjoys helping patients overcome their fear of the dentist and teaching them about cavity prevention and oral health. Wherever you may see her in the office, she will greet you with a smile and make you feel right at home! On Sierra’s free time, her and her husband Christian are busy raising (can chasing) their 4 year old son Camden...he keeps them on their toes!
