Meet OUR DENTAL TEAM
Colleen, Patient Care Coordinator
Pictured here with her favorite band (Toto), Colleen has been with Dr. James since 2013. She brings over twenty years of dental experience to our office. She enjoys helping patients with every facet of their dental experience. Her knowledge, experience and care for her “patient family” makes her a vital part of our team. Colleen lives in Cleveland, Oklahoma with her husband James and their cats Hunter Bo and Trouble.
Crystal, Registered Dental Hygienist
The role of the dental hygienist is to assist individuals in achieving and maintaining optimal oral health. This is something in which Crystal is truly passionate. Joining our office in January of 2018, Crystal takes pride in getting to know each patient on a personal level and providing high quality individualized dental care. Crystal was raised in Pryor, Oklahoma and is a graduate of Pryor High School. She performed her undergraduate studies at Tulsa Community College before being accepted into the University Of Oklahoma College Of Dentistry, earning a Bachelor of Science degree in Dental Hygiene in 2013. She has a desire to assist patients of all needs, with a focus on improvement of their oral health, while making them feel comfortable and welcome. She enjoys spending time with her son, Ethan, and her two cats.
IS IS A LINE BREAK
Daisy, Lead Dental Assistant
As the first person that usually greets our patients, she always has a smile upon arrival. Daisy is bi-lingual in Spanish and is happy to assist whenever translation is needed. She has been with our office since August of 2016. She chose to begin her career in the dental field because she loves helping people. Having a dental anxiety herself, she uses that opportunity to make it a better dental experience for our patients. She feels very fortunate to work with an amazing team and a caring doctor. Daisy also has a license in cosmetology and has a passion for helping people feel great. She recently married her husband, Luis, and lives in Tulsa with their two adorable dogs Max and Bentley.
Nichole, Front Desk Client Support
Nichole began her career in the dental field in 2013. Nichole graduated Summa Cum Laude from Medical Careers Institute in Virginia in 2014. We refer to Nichole as our “Jill of all trades.” She is equally adept in all aspects of coordinating patient care at the front desk as well as assisting the doctor chair-side. She is passionate about taking the extra steps needed to provide a quality dental experience. Nichole and her husband, Zach, welcomed their first child, Amelia Rose, in September of 2019.
Tiana, Dental Assistant
Our newest member of the team is Tiana. She is originally from Austin, Texas and moved to Tulsa in 2017 to be with her family. She chose the dental field because, as a child, she always loved going to the dentist. Dental assisting allows Tiana to share her love of dentistry with the patients and her fellow team members. She lives in Catoosa with her two cats. Her commitment to patient care is refreshing. She is a true professional that takes pride in caring for patients and proving exceptional treatment.
