I decided I was going to be a dentist when I was 7 years old. I’m not sure exactly why, but I started orthodontics in first grade and my orthodontist was awesome. Also, my aunt was the office manager at my general dentist’s office so I loved going in there because I always got an extra toy out of the treasure chest!

As I got a little older, I realized it wasn’t all rainbow rubber bands and treasure chests that made the dentists in my life so great; it was that they were passionate about helping people. After attending the University of Southern California for college I went east to Boston University School of Dental Medicine where I graduated Cum Laude (and met Dave). Once I was in dental school it became clear being a general dentist was what I was meant to do. Connecting with patients is the best part of my job. I’m fortunate that helping a phobic patient work through their fears or giving someone the smile they have dreamed of or simply getting someone out of pain is my job! That does not get old.  

Continuing education is extremely important to all of us at Crested Butte Family Dental. We spends hundreds of hours each year individually or as a team learning as much as we can to best serve our patients. Dental school does a decent job of giving you the basics, but continuing education is where you learn the treatments and technology that you can become passionate about. We have the leading technology and have spent numerous hours learning how best to use it to our patients' advantage. I have suffered from TMJ-related pain, sensitivity and headaches for years. That is the reason I am dedicated to learning as much about relieving patients' TMJ pain in the most simple and effective way, and why I have pursued certification in Disclusion Time Reduction (DTR).

Dave and I are fortunate to be joining this amazing community and we are looking forward to getting to know you and your families.

Constantly learning and growing are a huge part of my values and I’m fortunate that dentistry is an ever-evolving profession. I was fortunate to have a progressive mentor through dental school and was able to begin my career at his practice in Boulder. That is where I was first introduced to Cerec (same-day crown) technology as well as laser dentistry. I immediately learned as much as I could about Cerec and was asked to join the CerecDoctors.com Mentor group in 2012 and Visiting Faculty in 2016. In 2016, I also became a Cerec Trainer for Patterson Dental and traveled around the Western Slope training new Cerec owners on their technology.

My primary goal has always been to improve the patient experience and for me that means listening to patient concerns, educating them on prevention and treatment, and creating an efficient and comfortable appointment. With the Cerec, 3D Xrays, and Laser technology, I am able to make your appointment personalized, comfortable and easy.

I am excited to be putting down roots in the Gunnison Valley community. My first visit to Crested Butte was when I was 15 years old and visiting a friend at Western State College. I immediately felt how special this place is and almost cannot believe that the dream of living here has become a reality. I grew up in a small town in Wisconsin and attended University of Wisconsin Madison for undergrad. Afterward, I went to Boston University where I graduated Cum Laude from dental school (and met Chelsea). It feels like it’s been a long road to get to this point; however, at the same time it feels like everything is just beginning. Chelsea and I are so fortunate to raise our children here and serve such a wonderful community of people.

I have had the pleasure of living in beautiful Crested Butte, Colorado for the past 20 years. Like many others who live here, when I’m not working you will find me enjoying all of the outdoors activities our valley has to offer. I love spending time with my husband Rusty, our new baby girl Emery Rose, and our dog Tilley out on the trails, rivers, lakes, and of course, traveling.

My true passion in both my personal and professional life is helping others. My career of being a Dental Hygienist allows me to fulfill this passion in many ways. I’m dedicated, caring and devoted to helping my patients feel at ease while providing the highest quality dental care possible.

I’m always eager to learn the latest and greatest and new advancements in the dental world. I love learning and am excited to work in an office where we provide conservative and comprehensive dental care using the best technology dentistry offers. Being a complete health provider is important to me, which is why I became an Orofacial Myofunctional Therapist. Myofunctional Therapy promotes neuromuscular reeducation of the oral and facial muscles. i’m  trained to work with muscles of the face, jaw, lips and tongue to establish proper rest posture and patterns, eliminating negative oral habits which impact growth and development of facial structures. I also assess and treat improper lip, tongue and jaw postures, which, if left untreated can lead to a number of dysfunctional disorders and parafunctional habits.  

I’m extremely honored to be working with Drs. Dave and Chelsea Stangl and I’m excited to be able to continue evolving my skills as they will be introducing many new and exciting procedures and technologies to Crested Butte Family Dental.

I am a registered hygienist excited to work for the CB Family Dental team.  I moved here in 2014 with my husband, Scott and my four beautiful children.  We are enjoying all the valley has to offer.  The amazing views, snow, flowers and top hiking trails are a few of my favorite things.  I find my career very rewarding and my passion is to give you the best dental experience possible.  In my spare time I enjoy expanding my dental knowledge by taking dental CE courses and reading about new techniques in the dental field.  You can also find me volunteering throughout the community because I believe it’s important to give back.  I look forward to seeing you at CB Family Dental!

I love being a part of the CB Family Dental team. I’ve been at the office since 2012 as Dr. Michael Faktor’s lead assistant and have continued in that position with Doctors Dave and Chelsea. My favorite part of being on this team is everyone’s commitment to providing the highest quality care both functionally and aesthetically. I’m passionate about my patients' comfort and strive to educate them on their treatment and the procedures so they are as relaxed as possible during their care.

Originally I’m from Anchorage, Alaska, where I spent my childhood on the ice. I played Division I women's hockey at St. Cloud State University and obtained a Bachelor's degree in Human Biology. I help coach the Gunnison Blades U19 girls' team and love it! I’m excited that I get to pass on my love of hockey to my 4-year-old son, Beau, who will be starting the sport this winter.  My husband, Scott, and I love this town and feel very fortunate to be raising Beau in such a glorious place.

Born and raised in Grand Rapids, Michigan, I always dreamed of living in Colorado. After graduating from Michigan State, I moved out to Crested Butte to live with my aunt for the summer and never left! I met my husband working at a ski shop and we’ve made Crested Butte our home. I enjoy shredding pow all winter and seeing how lost I can get in the woods riding my bike the rest of the year. I have two standard poodles and a cat with fangs, but it’s only appropriate that my cat has fangs since I’m a Halloween baby and love all-things spooky. I joined Crested Butte Dental Family in August and am excited to be a part of this amazing team.

Born and raised just outside Denver, I didn’t have to go far to find my forever home. I moved to Gunnison in 2009 to attend Western State Colorado University and fell in LOVE with what the valley has to offer. Graduated in May of 2013, one summer turned into another, which turned into me planting some roots. Like a lot WSCU grads, I just couldn’t leave.  I spend most of my time outside work with my dog Tilly. We love hiking, biking, paddle boarding, snowboarding and the occasional snuggling on the couch! Tilly growing up in the Gunnison Valley has made her a spoiled pup.

I am thrilled to be one of the newest members of Crested Butte Family Dental. Everyone has been so welcoming and friendly. Dr. Dave and Dr. Chelsea are amazing new additions to our community and I can’t wait to see what the future holds for them in Crested Butte! I’m so excited to learn more in my new position at the practice. I love working with people and helping out in any way possible. I feel like I’m a good fit for the team and all our patients!
