Jacque- Administrative Coordinator:
After high school my first dental position was at the BCMC (Bernallio County Medical Center) dental clinic on Gibson, SE. As volunteers we received on the job training as dental assistants. I was hired by one of the dentists who also donated their time once a week. I was a dental assistant until beginning employment with Dr. Gutierrez on January 2, 2000. At that time I switched to the business office. The people who work here and the patients who come here are wonderful!
Lori- Scheduling Coordinator:
I started in dentistry in the mid 90's. I wanted to do something that I would enjoy and would have a prosperous career. I started in the dental profession working with patients of all ages. I really enjoyed being able to help patients feel comfortable and at the end of the appointment always seeing them smile. Over the years I've continued learning, becoming certified in several areas including coronal polishing, taking x-rays, CPR and OSHA. I have been with Dr. Gutierrez for 15 years, the first 10 working chair side and the last 5 as the scheduling coordinator. I still help take care of patients as a chair side assistant when needed and enjoy continuing to make them smile.I have awesome coworkers and a great work environment.
