Meet the Doctors

My philosophy has always been to provide the best care possible.  I understand that individuals come to me with different needs and preferences and it is my job to educate and guide them through their treatment decisions.  I enjoy fixing someone's smile, but I also get great satisfaction in keeping them healthy.  My goal is to have my patients feel their experience has exceeded their expectations.

As a child I was blessed with very large teeth.  Unfortunately, they did not all fit in my mouth.  I grew up very self-conscious about my smile.  Like many teenagers, I had Orthodontics to fix my teeth.  This was a turning point in my life because not only did I gain a great smile, I found my calling.  I decided that I could help others by becoming a Dentist.

I graduated from the University of Colorado School of Dentistry in 1997 and achieved my Residency at the Denver VA Hospital.  I gained exceptional experience and enjoyed working with the many veterans who came through the program.  I joined Dr. Halek in 1998 as her associate, and loved the practice so much that I became her partner soon after. I live in Niwot with my husband and three children.  We love Colorado and enjoy all outdoor activities that it offers.

I love practicing dentistry, seeing my patients every day, and treating everyone’s individual needs.  Keeping up with new dental technology and materials is very exciting and rewarding.  Treating patients as we would want to be treated has always been our office credo.  You will find our office relaxed, professional, friendly and caring.

I received my DDS degree from the University of Colorado Dental School in Denver and completed a general practice residency at Albert Einstein in Philadelphia.  In 1993 I opened my own practice in Boulder and have been at this same Broadway location ever since.  I was lucky enough to find an amazing partner in Dr. Tara Rathburn.  Together we strive to provide you with the highest quality of dentistry possible.

My husband, Dr. Brent Lang, is an orthodontist that also practices in Boulder.  We live in the country with our three children and assorted animals.  We all love outside activities and numerous sports, especially tennis.
