    Mindy was born and raised about 100 miles south of Denver in Pueblo, CO. She has always had a passion for dentistry and feels very fortunate to be able to do what she loves. She graduated in 2002 from Pueblo Community College with a degree in dental assisting. She was a full-time dental assistant for 5 years and enjoyed working with patients, offering them comfort and watching their smiles improve. An opportunity arose while working as a dental assistant to move to the front office at the practice she had been with since the beginning of her career. She took the leap and the transition has proved to be a positive one. She appreciates that she understands both back and front office procedures and believes that the knowledge helps to keep the office running smoothly. Her goal is to always make the patient feel comfortable and informed about the dental treatment 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 over 7 years and truly loves her job.
