Drs. Dunbar and Messingham and the staff at Castle Rock Orthodontics promote a team-centered work environment that respects individual and professional values. We will continually attract, develop, and retain the highest quality professional staff.
I am a proud Colorado native and live in Parker with my wonderful husband Robert. We have 4 adult children, Kortnie (who also works at Castle Rock Orthodontics) Dalton, Matt and Dillon.
We enjoy all kinds of sports! Our favorite sport is ice hockey, especially when our son Dalton plays! I have been an Orthodontic Assistant for Dr. Dunbar since 2006. I love working with our patients and watching them progress in treatment!
I have enjoyed working in the orthodontic field since 1991. I started as a dental hygiene assistant for three years and continued my education to become an expanded duty dental assistant. I joined Castle Rock Orthodontics in 1999 and have loved making so many patients smile! I provide assistance to our doctors, provide education to patients about the importance of their orthodontic treatment, and make sure our patients have the best orthodontic experience. Our team works well together and we strive to give the best treatment in town. It’s not hard considering we work with two of the best orthodontists in town!
I am married to my high school sweetheart, Joe. We have been married for nearly 27 years. We have four grown children, Steven (Nory), Lisa (Tyson), Joseph, and Michelle. We also have two grandkids, Destiny and Eli Cash. We do enjoy our time together as a family and traveling to see our two oldest children and grandchildren in Texas and Wyoming. Joe and I have been blessed as young, vibrant parents to have well-educated children and to see them become great leaders to others as well to their own children. We love the Colorado outdoors and we enjoy our annual camping trips to Eleven Mile reservoir and our hunting trips as a family.
I believe that everyone deserves a beautiful smile! I joined Castle Rock Orthodontics when I first started dental assisting school in 2008 and have been here ever since! I love to learn and am always looking for more ways to expand my knowledge and education throughout the dental world. I love the family environment the doctors have created within our office and couldn’t imagine life without my team!
I married my high school sweetheart in 2008 and together we have three children, Valerie, Vincent, and baby Violet. I spend most of my free time carting around the kiddos to all of their sports and activities but my true love belongs to my Denver Broncos!
I have been with Dr. Dunbar and Dr. Messingham since August of 2009 as the scheduling coordinator. The doctors are both awesome people as well as excellent orthodontists; they treat our patients as they would their own children. My own personal experience with my own three children’s orthodontic treatment has prepared me well for my position. Understanding the demands of school, extra-curricular activities, and the logistics of that certainly help when scheduling patient visits to our office! I enjoy seeing the progress of our patients as they make their way to a lifetime with a beautiful smile.
My husband of 25 years and our three children moved to Colorado in 2006. We’ve been coming to this beautiful state for many years and were thrilled to move here! We are all active skiers and also enjoy hiking and biking. We have a goofy, sweet boxer named Cane.
Public Relations Coordinator
I have worked in general dentistry for the first 18 years of my 20 years in the field. In April of 2013, I was given an opportunity to switch gears and do marketing for Drs. Dunbar and Messingham. It was the best decision of my career! I am responsible for all the internal and external marketing for the practice. I set up fun contests for our patients and referring offices and help my wonderful team members with miscellaneous office tasks. Everyone on our team makes our work environment so much fun! We laugh and have a great time during the day; we all truly enjoy each other and the service we provide!
Treatment and Insurance Coordinator
After completing my Bachelor’s degree in education from UNC, I started working orthodontics in 1985 and worked for an orthodontist in Denver. He taught me to love orthodontics, demonstrating that when teeth fit together properly they can last a lifetime if maintained properly. I have been doing this ever since and love every minute of it! Here at Castle Rock Orthodontics, I meet and greet new patients, set up financial and insurance arrangements, and generally ensure that our patients feel comfortable and that their experience here is pleasant. My favorite thing is seeing a new patient get so excited about getting braces, and then seeing the results when the braces finally come off! The smiles are spectacular!
I am a Colorado native, married with three grown children. I love to cook, hike, read, and spend time with my family.
I was born and raised in the beautiful state of Colorado. I love being outdoors. I like camping, snowboarding and riding the motorcycle. I am an avid sports lover, especially for the Colorado Avalanche. I am in my senior year at the University of Colorado at Denver. I will be graduating with my Bachelors degree in sociology.
I have been an orthodontic assistant with Dr. Dunbar since 2013, but I have known Dr. Dunbar since 2004 when he did my braces!
