  • Flanigan Dentistry - Kristen

  • Kristen

    Kristen’s family moved to Colorado when she was 9 years old and she grew up in the small town of Peyton. Before this, Kristen and her family lived in Germany. Peyton is where she met her husband Billy Hartman, who as it happens to be, is also a dentist. After high school she pursued her higher education and received a Master’s from the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs. During this long arduous time, she worked as a vet tech at Animal Dental Care and gained 10yrs of tech experience. Dr. Flanigan and Kristen have been friends for a long time due to the fact that Dr. Flanigan and Dr. Hartman attended dental school together. When it came time for Dr. Flangian to fill a staff position, Kristen was the first person he thought of. The rest is history. Kristen has brought so much to our office. Whether its dealing with system issues, digital xrays issues, or insurance questions, Kristen is your go to girl.

    Kristen and her husband adopted three dogs named Pickle, Cy and Pork Chop who are the apple of their eye and keep them quite busy. During their limited free time she and Billy enjoy hiking, backpacking and taking care of her other baby, a horse named Gaelic.

  • Flanigan Dentistry - Mindy

  • Mindy

    Mindy was born and raised about 100 miles south of Denver in Pueblo, CO. As a young girl, Mindy knew she wanted to pursue a career in dentistry. As a kid, her childhood dentist would let her “assist” on her baby sister during cleanings, and she knew then that this was the career for her. She graduated from Pueblo Community College in 2002 with a degree in dental assisting. She says her favorite part of her dental assisting career was watching people’s smiles improve. About five years into her career she made the leap from back dental office to front dental office. The transition has proved to be a positive one and she appreciates having an understanding of both back office and front office procedures. Her goal is to always make patients feel comfortable and informed about the procedures they are having.

    In the fall of 2011, Mindy and her husband Fred decided to relocate to Aurora, CO in order to provide their family with better opportunities. She has worked with Dr. Flanigan for close to 2 years and truly loves her job. Mindy and Fred have 3 beautiful children that fill their lives with a ton of love, joy, and constant laughter. She enjoys reading (when she has time), watching Bronco football, taking in movies, and spending time with her family.
