Lisa joined us in the summer of 2015 after having spent over 30 years working with Dr. Ken Kocher, who retired that summer. When asked how long she’s been in dentistry, she humorously replies, “So long that some of my diploma signatures are fading!” Lisa is a native of Albuquerque, having graduated from Highland High School, and later attending UNM on a full track and academic scholarship. There she earned that degree as a hygienist (the one with the fading signatures). Her engaging personality and gentle touch have made her patients loyal fans for life. She is an incredible asset to our office and we are completely thrilled to have her join our team. She and her husband of over 35 years, Fred, have three children. They enjoy being outdoors as much as possible, whether it’s hiking, camping, going to the lake, gardening, or walking their dog, Boone. Lisa also provides accelerated hygiene care to her patients, allowing even more patients to enjoy her contagious upbeat personality and expertise as a hygienist.
