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


Alyssa- Front Office Coordinator

Alyssa Carroll is the Front Office Coordinator for Boulder Smiles. She grew up in Windsor, CO, and went to college at Winona State University where she competed on the gymnastics team. Alyssa loves dentistry because she believes that a beautiful and healthy smile can be such a huge confidence boost and is inspired by how a smile transformation can have such a positive effect on someone’s life. In her free time, Alyssa enjoys spending time with her friends and family, creating DIY projects, and creative nail art.


Aleana - Dental Assistant at bouldersmiles

Aleana – Dental 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.


Brittany – Dental Assistant

Brittany was born and raised in Denver, Colorado. She is very passionate about dentistry and exceptionally talented because of her dedication to providing an excellent experience to all her patients.

In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her boyfriend outdoors on boating trips and traveling


Kim - Dental Hygienist at bouldersmiles

Kim – Dental 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.


Heather – Dental Hygienist

Heather is a Colorado native who has been working in the dental field since 2006. She graduated with a degree in Dental Hygiene from Colorado Northwestern Community College in 2011. Her passion for dentistry shows every day as she treats her patients with a gentle touch and provides exceptional care.
