When not at RiNo Dental, she enjoys running, hiking, lifting weights, backpacking, dancing, and fly fishing. She also always makes time to play with her adorable puppy, Rino. And, because she doesn’t have enough to do already, she also has her own wedding planning company, “Nomad Occasions.”

Kaycee, Dental Assistant

Dental Assistant Kaycee

Kaycee is a fresh face here at RiNo Dental, but she actually has over 4 years of experience helping patients smile a little bigger and a little brighter. A consummate people-person, she says the best part of her job is “connecting with people.” When’s the last time you felt a connection at the dentist?! In addition to being a fully-trained dental assistant, she is also certified in phlebotomy.

We’re very lucky to have Kaycee with us because she’s a bit of a nomad. Originally from Los Alamos, NM, she eventually made her way to Seattle (where her two bros and sis are) before living in Hawaii for a while. We have no clue why she left, but we’re glad she did! When not at the office, you’ll find her camping, working out, or trying a new type of food.
