Meet The Team

bouldersmiles® in Boulder CO

Dr. Mark Birnbach and his staff at bouldersmiles strive to provide you the finest dental experience. Each of these ladies has their own story to tell:


Sunny - Office Manager at bouldersmiles

Sunny – Office Manager

I’m mostly a “Colorado girl” and lived in Colorado Springs before coming to Boulder in 1966 to attend CU where I majored in Religious Studies. I married my soul mate, Sam, in 1984 and we’ve lived in Louisville ever since. Over the years we’ve enjoyed hiking the trails in our beautiful mountains, traveling, going to the Denver Art Museum, gardening, and have always had a beloved 4-legged companion.

I “stumbled” into bookkeeping while working in retail and began doing the bookkeeping for Dr. Birnbach in 1987 and transitioned into front office administration in 1989.

It’s been very special getting to know and help so many of our wonderful patients over the years while learning about dentistry & I love working with my amazing teammates.


Susan - Front Office Administrator

Susan- Front Office Administrator

I moved to  Colorado when I was 10. I have been in the dental field for 39 years. I started as a dental assistant and then moved to front office administration

I enjoy meeting the wonderful patients at bouldersmiles and working with such a talented and fun team.

 I enjoy biking, hiking, gardening and DIY projects on my home in Boulder with my partner Phil and dog Bailey.

I also love to travel and spend as much  time as possible with my grandson


Aleana - Dental Assistant at bouldersmiles

Aleana – Assistant

I relocated to Colorado from California approximately 9 years ago and joined the Birnbach Team in October 2006. I moved to Colorado with my only daughter Alyx, to be closer to family in Longmont. Before our move, I worked for a very large dental group, the Vandenberg Air Force Base Dental Squadron.

I have been a Dental Assistant since January 1997, and have explored all areas of dentistry but have come to love the cosmetic dentistry the best. In my spare time, I enjoy movies, Denver nightlife, and the ever-changing colors of Colorado.


Kim - Dental Hygienist at bouldersmiles

Kim – Hygienist

I am very happy to be back caring for the patients I’ve grown up with, since first starting on Dr. Birnbach‘s team in 1989. I attained my Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene from the University of Colorado in 1988, and also received the American Dental Hygiene Association Award for Clinical Excellence.

I take great pride in offering gentle and thorough care and believe it is the basis for whole-body health.

When I am not caring for patients, I enjoy spending time with my high school sweetheart and husband, Rob, and my two wonderful sons, Kellen and Cole. I also enjoy running, reading, tap dancing, learning guitar, and creating glass art with my friends.
