Dental Assistant

Sheila is from Faribault, Minnesota, and attended college at Mankato State University. In 1983, she came to Fort Collins and started working with Dr. Pettine and what is now Associates in Family Dentistry. Years later, she still loves her profession, working with our team, and enjoys her patients because, "they feel like family." When she is not working, she loves to go boating, play golf, and go hiking at Horsetooth Reservoir.

She then began working for a general dentist, in Connecticut, before moving to Fort Collins in 2004 when she joined our practice.  She is married and has two beautiful girls.  In her spare time, if there is any for a young working mom, she enjoys dancing, shopping, traveling and camping.
