Nikki was welcomed to our team in 2013, and is a perfect fit! She is a team player & the first one to jump right in & help out wherever she sees a need. Nikki loves helping her patients reach/maintain optimal oral health & is happy to be working in a practice where all team members share this goal. Nikki received her degree in Dental Hygiene from the College of Southern Nevada, where she graduated with Honors before moving to Las Vegas.

We were thrilled when Jen joined our team in 2014. She is outgoing and earnest, with an extensive knowledge of hygiene and a sincere desire to help people. She received her degree in dental hygiene from Utah Valley University in 2010, and is a firm believer in continuing education. If you ask, Jen’s favorite part of her job is meeting and getting to know each patient individually. She chose to work in our office, in part, because of the ability she has to get to know our patients and by so doing, to better serve them. When Jen isn’t busy saving the world, one pair of gums at a time, she loves to spend time biking, reading, traveling, or just hanging out with her husband and pair of daughters.
Many of you might recognize Kathryn, whom we have worked with for the last decade. Her caring personality and excellent attention to detail make her a perfect addition to our team.

She received her degree in Dental Hygiene from the College of Southern Nevada, where she was the recipient of the prestigious President’s Volunteer Service Award and the Derbra Groome Peterman Memorial Community Dental Health Award. She is a member of the Western Society of Periodontology and an Infection Control Inspector for the Nevada State Board of Dental Examiners. When Kathryn isn’t busy saving the world from gingivitis, you can find her hiking, biking, or kayaking in the mountains with her hubby and 2 dogs.
Dee Dee is the calming yin to Dr. I’s energetic yang. She has over 25 years of experience and has been sitting chair-side with Dr. I since 2011. You may overhear the two of them swapping dental jokes or movie reviews. The patient’s comfort and safety is always Dee Dee’s number one concern and she is expert at getting things done swiftly and skillfully, never letting a hectic day affect her. During her free time, Dee Dee loves spending time with her grandson or at the movies. Dr. I knows full well that a great team makes or breaks a dental office, one of many things making him among the most sought after dentists in Henderson NV.
That bubbly voice you hear coming from the back is probably Cathy, who always has a big smile and a funny story. Cathy has been in the dental field for 15 years, 5 of which were in pediatric dentistry. She loves getting to know each patient and helping them feel at ease. In her free time, Cathy loves spending time with her children and grandchildren (both human and furry), cycling with her husband, and of course, brushing her teeth.
Tina has been with our practice since it opened in 2007 and has been a key player in making it truly feel like a family practice.

She has been married for 36 years, with 3 children and 8 grandchildren and loves to travel with her husband. She is also an expert quilter and avid reader.
Marie is the friendly face you see when you walk in the door at our practice. She has over 7 years of experience in the dental field and began as one of our patients. She loved her visits so much, she came and joined our team! Always compassionate and understanding, Marie goes above and beyond to see to the needs of our patients. Marie is married with 4 sons and enjoys running & spending as much time as possible with her guys.
Brooke made our office very happy when she joined in 2013. She is always bright & optimistic and her energy is infectious.

Many of you may remember Lexi. She joined our team in 2008 as Dr. I’s chairside assistant. After some time off to start her family, we are happy to have Lexi back on our team on a part-time basis, so she can be at home, raising her 2 rambunctious boys. Lexi has been in the dental field for over 10 years and has extensive knowledge about all aspects of dentistry, having worked in several capacities. She is humble, helpful, detail-oriented, and thinks outside the box- often finding great ways to do things.
