We Couldn’t Do It Without Them
We met our first year of dental school while attending the University of Michigan and the connection was instant! We both graduated from the University of Michigan School of Dentistry in the top 25% of our class. The year we graduated U of M was ranked the #1 dental school in the world! We are very proud of our education and the perseverance it takes to excel as clinicians. Our passion for education is lifelong as we continue to take advanced courses all over the country to offer you and your family the absolute best dental care.
After graduation and our lakeside wedding in Northern Michigan, our passion for the mountains drew us West. We fell in love with Reno on our first ski trip to the area. We have always felt a connection to Lake Tahoe because it reminds us of all the best parts of our home state. The new name “Blue Water Dental Care” pays homage to all the fond memories we have on the water, and is meant to evoke calming, peaceful feelings for our patients.
We both share an outdoor-centric lifestyle. We love anything that will get us outside and active, including skiing, hiking, camping, mountain biking, traveling and crossfit. Of course we love spending time on any body of water boating, kayaking, paddle boarding or just soaking in the views. Dr. Dave also loves cooking, playing hockey and reading. Dr. Kris has a passion for drawing, painting with acrylic, and photography.
“I moved to the Reno area in 1984 and have called Reno my home ever since. I graduated from Truckee Meadows Dental Assisting Program in 2000, started my career as a chair side assistant and the past 16 years I have focused on the admin/front desk responsibilities. I love that in the dental field you can meet people from the community, form great friendships and support their dental health. I have 16 year old twins, a boy and a girl. When I am not busy with their school activities, sports, and their teen social life I like spending my time with friends and family. I enjoy reading, movies, traveling,cooking,wine tasting and anything outdoors.”
“I was born & raised on Lake Tahoe’s North Shore of Incline Village. I have been in Dentistry at the front desk for almost 25 years. I enjoy seeing patients everyday and helping them achieve their dental dreams. I am married with 2 children and 2 stepchildren. I also have a beautiful 18 month old grandson, who is my whole world. I have 4 dogs and love being in the garden.”
I am a local native and have lived here most of my life. I have been in dentistry for almost 20 years and truly enjoy providing excellent care to my patients. I started in orthodontics, moved to pedodontics for several years, then found my love to be in general dentistry. It is the relationships that are built inside a stable practice that I really love.
“I was born and raised in South Lake Tahoe, CA. I have been in the dental field for over a decade. I attended the Dental Hygiene Program at The College of Southern Nevada in Las Vegas, NV and have been practicing as a dental hygienist for over 6 years. I enjoy educating my patients to better their oral health while providing a gentle and exceptional experience. I am lucky to be surrounded by such a great team here at Blue Water Dental Care. On my free time, I enjoy playing golf, hiking with my dog Murphy, and spending time with my family and friends.”
“I was born and raised in Reno. Although, when I was young, my family and I lived in both Ohio and Colorado before settling back home! I am married and have 3 girls. I got a small taste of my dental career in high school working as sterilization in a small dental office, which in turn, encouraged my career as a Dental Hygienist. I decided go to Dental Hygiene school in Connecticut to get out of this small town atmosphere. But, what I quickly realized was how special this area really is. My husband and I love raising our girls here. I love the change of seasons the most. We spend our time running to softball or soccer practice, and when we can, we love to travel and camp. But I’m most content spending time at home in my garden!”
