Hi! My name is Francine, but everyone calls me “Fran”. I have been a Dental Assistant for over 15 years. I became a dental assistant because I love to help people and what better way to help people with their smile and make them feel good about themselves. When I am not at the office, I love spending time with my loved one and our dogs. I enjoy cooking and going to concerts and really it is the simple things in life that bring me joy.

Hi, my name is Shannon and I have been the Front Office Receptionist at Main Street Dental for over a year and a half. I love getting to meet new people here everyday and help them overcome fears of the dentist. I am a mother of 2 little boys who keep me very busy when not at work. We enjoy football for the kids, camping and being with family. Family is always #1 to me. One of my favorite sayings is, every cloud has a silver lining.
I am originally from Arizona but came to Colorado with my daughter in 2007. I completed dental school in 2008 and started my career in pediatric dentistry where I worked for 8 years. I have worked for Main Street Dental since 2016 where I started as a dental assistant but transitioned to front office and dental claims. I enjoy working in a field that makes people smile again. I understand that patients have a fear of the dentist and want to make their appointment with us as easy as possible. I have a lot of compassion for people and what they are going through. On my time off I enjoy spending it with my family and my dogs. We enjoy the outdoors and camping. I got married in July of 2018 to my best friend and soulmate.
I am new to the dental field and enjoy learning something new every day. I grew up watching and listening to my Mom (Laura) as she went to school in 2008 and working in the dental field. Dentistry can be very frightening, but it is very rewarding when you see a patient leave the office confident and smiling. I am so grateful to be able to work with these amazing people. On my free time I love to be with my family and be outdoors. I also love music and love to sing.
My name is Nathaleen, patients call me "Nat". I have been a dental assistant for 18 years. What I love most about dentistry is the opportunity to help people enjoy their smiles. I am an outgoing person who loves spending time with my family, working out in the gym and cooking. A quote that inspires me is "Stay focused, go after your dreams".
Raised right here in Canon City, Mike came back home in 2017 after living in Loveland, CO for 17 years. During that time, He earned his AAS degree in Dental Hygiene and worked in a public health clinic for 8 years as a Registered Dental Hygienist. Mike enjoys educating patients about oral health and working to bring his patients a healthier mouth and keeping them there. The opportunity came to move back “home”, literally, as Mike and his wife bought Mike’s childhood home and have been working hard since then to catch up on some much-needed maintenance. Taking care of “The Farm,” as it is affectionately known among Mike’s hobbies. Also included in the list of hobbies is bird watching, reading, and outdoors stuff, like camping and canoeing. Mike has two grown daughters and the move brought him closer to them, which he also thoroughly enjoys.
