Liz Prothro - Office Manager

Elizabeth, our office manager, is the first smiling face that you see when you walk into Levin Family Dental. A Denver native, she has been in the dental field for over 18 years. For Elizabeth, what is most rewarding about working for Levin Family Dental is not just that the doctors are incredible, but that the patients are one great big family.

Kelly - Expanded duty dental assistant

Having worked in dentistry my entire adult life, I have finally found my dental Nirvana. Levin Family Dental is the place I want to be until I retire. I love being able to work with an amazing team, everyone who works here is fantastic. I love being in an environment that is friendly and soothing and fun all at once. And I love that my doctors are highly skilled and do such fantastic veneers and cosmetic work. Being able to change someone’s smile is being able to change their life, and I love being a part of that!

Sue Ann Lee - Registered Dental Hygienist

Building relationships with my patients, both professionally and personally, is what makes me most proud. Working at Levin Family Dental continues to rekindle my passion for dentistry, always striving to be a better hygienist. It is a privilege and honor to work with the best team and the best doctors in Denver. In time away from the office I enjoy serving on a ministry team that allows me to work with a widows group as well as traveling with the team to help college age students.

Melody - Administrative assistant

It has been so exciting to make the transition from working with Dr Ron Linkow to moving in with the Levin Family Dental crew! My favorite part of the day is catching up with our long time patients while still having the opportunity to meet some fun new smiling faces! I love the office technology, seeing patients show off their new smile designs ready to take on the world, and finding ways to help patients achieve the smile they have always dreamed of!

Jessica Gehde - Registered Dental Hygienist

Being a Colorado native, I graduated from the University of Colorado Health Science Center in 2006 with a Bachelors of Science in Dental Hygiene. I am proud to call Levin Family Dental her professional homebase since June of 2012. It’s challenging narrowing down the parts about working at Levin Family Dental because there are so many, including their commitment ethical standards, their use of the best technology and equipment, and of course – the top-notch team she works with daily. Outside of work, I enjoy working out, spending time with family and friends, and napping with my dog, Lambeau.

Ann - Hygienist

Having grown up in Minnesota, it is so nice to have found a dental team that feels like something from the Midwest. The doctors are not only skilled but also kind, the team is warm and welcoming, and the reception area is always a comfy place to settle in before your treatment. I love being able to help patients understand their comprehensive approach to not only their oral health, but their entire systemic health. Its also so fun to be able to develop long lasting relationships with my patients!

Molly Dubois - Expanded Dental Duty Assistant

I have been in the dental field since 2002. Dentistry is not about treating a tooth, it’s about patient comfort and offering a great experience in the chair. My favorite part of working for Levin Family Dental has been working for a family practice with generations of loyal patients where patient comfort and happiness come first. I love dentistry so much that I have presented at the Rocky Mountain Dental Convention and teach dental assisting when I am not creating amazing Levin Family Dental smiles.


Monique - Administrative assistant

I love to smile, and am often the first person you will meet when you walk through our doors. I love helping people feel at ease when they walk in for the first time or the 50th time in our practice. Having veneers myself I know how much a great smile can change your life, so I love being a part of a dental team that does such amazing cosmetic dentistry.

Cara O'Connor - Registered Dental Hygienist

I have been in the dental field since 2003. My career began as a dental assistant followed by becoming a Dental Hygienist. Graduating from Iowa Central Community College in 2012, I was fortunate to start working for Levin Family Dental that same year.  My favorite part about working with the team at Levin is that each person has the same desire to ensure the best optimal outcome for each and every patient. Outside of work, I enjoy all the activities Colorado provides, including – hiking, biking, skiing, running, traveling and spending time with her dog, Kobi.

Shauna - Expanded duty dental assistant

Having moved to Colorado from Utah, where I worked in a very high technology practice, I knew I wanted to find the right fit. A great team, talented dentists and hygienists, and current technology were key factors in my search. Luckily I found my forever dental team! Our patients love the CEREC, or one visit crowns. Our smile makeovers are gorgeous. And our team and patients are like family.

Lindsey Anderson - Expanded Dental Duty Assistant

Lindsey is a Colorado native and has been in the dental field her entire life. She graduated from Fort Lewis College in Colorado Springs and has been working for Levin since 2011 as a Dental Assistant.

Outside of work, Lindsey enjoys spending time with friends and family, as well as participating in several outdoor sports, including hiking, biking, camping, snowboarding, rock climbing, rugby and water sports.
