Bio coming soon…
Colorado Springs Component
Director – Heather Schenkel, RDH, BSAH
Heather has always loved the field of dentistry and is honored to be a part of it. She was a previous orthodontic dental assistant and EDDA and this experience gave her a vast knowledge of all things dentistry to share with her patients. Her enthusiasm for learning led her to Pueblo Community College and to the dental hygiene program. With the help of the outstanding faculty and staff there, her love for dentistry grew. She graduated in May 2017 and dove headfirst into working and volunteering with CODHA. She aspires to help make a difference in the field and work to change the separation between oral and systemic treatment of patients and find a way to integrate the medical and dental fields to allow for a whole body approach to treatment.
Metro Denver Component
Director – Tabitha Converse RDH
Tabitha graduated in 1998 from Sheridan College with an Associate’s degree, and then completed Bachelor’s degree from the University of Wyoming in 1998.

Alternate Director – Candice Bronzini RDH, BSDH
