Kaydene

Kaydene Front Office Administrator headshot

I have been in the dental field since 1995, I started as an assistant and moved to the front desk position in 2009. I became part of Whole Family Dentistry in 2017 when Dr. Lisa Kalfas and our team merged with Dr. Kawulok and his team. Dr. Kalfas retired in 2018 and Dr. Nicole Kent joined the family. I feel blessed to be able to continue to serve not only the long-time WFD patients but the patients that came over with Dr. Kalfas that I have known for many years. We truly have the best patients!

My husband and I are high school sweethearts from South Dakota, we moved to Boulder in 1990. We have four children, a son-in-law, and a precious granddaughter. Outside of the office I have always enjoyed volunteering, watching our kids play sports and riding on the back of my husband’s Harley.

Originally from Wisconsin, I earned my Bachelor of Environmental Design Degree from the University of Colorado. I joined the Whole Family Dentistry team in July of 2011 after 20+ years of being in the interior design field. My career in the dental field began as an assistant before moving to the front office. I will happily assist you in making your dental experience a pleasant one. In my free time, I enjoy all the outdoor activities Colorado has to offer, as well as yoga, cooking, interior design, and traveling.

In 2009, I received my Expanded Duties Dental Assistant Certification from Gulf Coast State College in Panama City Florida and passed the Dental Assistant National Board in the same year. In 2018 I moved to Colorado and have been working with Dr Kawulok and Dr Kent. I take pride in my 13 years of assisting experience to help you be as comfortable as possible while you’re here with us getting the best care. When I am not working I enjoy making art, knitting, and hiking. Quality time in my family is spent playing tabletop, role playing games and video games together.

Brook Assistant Headshot
I started my job as a Dental Assistant in August of 2020. I had been working as a waitress at a restaurant building my customer service skills. I was born and raised in Longmont Colorado with minimal moving here and there. I absolutely love to get to know people and hear about their life stories. I currently live in Longmont with my Golden Retriever named Biscuit & my cat Rinley. Some of my favorite things to do are go on long walks with my dog, spend time with friends and family, and doing DIY projects.

Martha

Marth Assistant Headshot
I began my dental assistant training in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. I started my career with Whole Family on my birthday in 2020, where I’ve expanded my knowledge on Physiological Dentistry and caring for patients. In my free time I love watching and attending sporting events, spending time with my Great Pyrenees Archie and soaking up the sun!

Lia

Lia Assistant Headshot

I joined the team as a dental assistant in 2019 but you may occasionally find me at the front desk as well. In the short time I’ve been assisting, I’ve quickly gained a love for dentistry and feel fortunate to be a part of a team that encourages growth and provides opportunities to further my education. What I enjoy most is creating a positive environment so each patient walks in and out with a smile.

Growing up, I was a competitive gymnast and cheerleader. College led me to Hawaii, where I was a cheerleader for the University of Hawaii at Manoa. I later moved back to Boulder and had a son, Manu.

Renee

Renne Hygienist in Boulder Headshot

I have enjoyed a great dental career which began in the 90’s in California. After moving to Denver in 2014 I felt drawn to the mountains and eventually landed in Boulder County. I love to teach and inform patients of the condition of their oral health, and what can be done to remedy a less favorable condition. When not in the office, I enjoy laughing with friends and family, and the great outdoors with hiking, biking, running, and skiing.

Michaela

Michaela Hygienist in Boulder Headshot

I was born and raised in Colorado. In 2006 I earned my degree in Dental Hygiene, in Denver.  I make it a priority to frequently take courses to further my knowledge in providing comfort and care for my patient’s individual needs.  When not providing preventative dental care, I am actively leading and serving in church and Bible study with my husband, Brian.  Together we daily instruct and encourage our 3 kids in school, swim team, baseball, basketball, volleyball, flag football and artistic swimming.  I also enjoy jogging and paddleboarding with my Golden Retriever and playing board games with my family and friends, especially when I win! Proverbs 3:5-6

Shelley

Shelly Hygienist in Boulder Headshot

I am from Northeast Montana and grew up on the Fort Peck Reservation. I graduated from the Dental Hygiene program in Sheridan, WY and also took courses prior at EMC in Billings, MT. Besides getting my degree, I also met my wonderful husband, Brian in Sheridan. We moved to Boulder in 1995 when I began my career as a hygienist.

I enjoy hiking, running, some mountain biking and started strength training recently and have come to love that. My passion is being a role model to the younger teens, especially the Native Americans on the reservation. I also like writing when I make the time. My husband and I enjoy spending time with family, especially our son and grandkids who live nearby. I have met so many wonderful people over the years practicing in Boulder. I love the relationships I have developed with patients. I enjoy hearing about other people’s lives.
