Meet our Sage Dental Care Boulder Staff

Our Sage Dental Care Boulder staff is here to make your dental visit an easy and comfortable experience.

alison-verlinich-2Alison – Office Manager

My name is Alison Verlinich, and you could say I’m dental practice veteran. My favorite part of working in the front office is meeting our patients and hearing their stories. I was was raised in Calgary, Canada, and I lived in California, Alaska, and New Mexico before moving to Colorado in 2009. My teenage daughter, Sophia, loves it here and so do I. My hobbies include seeing live music and running. I’ve run more marathons than I expected, and I hope to run a few more. Prior to working in dentistry, I studied art at Alberta College of Art in Canada and I’m fortunate to have paintings scattered about walls in New Mexico, Colorado, and Alaska.

CharlotteCharlotte – Hygienist

Hi! My name is Charlotte Duncan.  I am a Colorado native, born and raised in Pueblo, CO.  I have lived and worked in Boulder for 36 years.  My husband, grown children, and two grandchildren (all Boulder natives) share our love for the outdoors.  While raising my family, I have been fortunate to have been a dental hygienist as well.  I have enjoyed my career, but most importantly all of the wonderful people I have met and helped with their dental needs.  I worked in this very office for years for Dr. Hulse, and I’m excited to be a part of the transition to Sage Dental Care.  I would invite you to come meet the staff and see all the improvements to the office here at Sage Dental Care in Boulder.  I look forward to meeting you or seeing you again.

I graduated from Fortis Institute in March of 2014. I was honored to receive the award for perseverance from faculty for continued commitment to hard work and education. I am a single mom with two kids, Holden (10 years old) and Haydyn (7 years old). We recently moved to Colorado from Erie, Pennsylvania. Although I was raised in New Mexico and the suburbs of Seattle, Washington. Outside of work, I enjoy time with my family, cooking and reading.

Deanna – Front office

I joined the Sage Dental team in January 2015.  My responsibilities include scheduling patient appointments, verifying insurance, writing treatment plans with cost estimates, and other office tasks.  I enjoy helping our patients understand their treatment needs and navigating their insurance benefits.
In addition to working at the front desk in Boulder, I’m also in school perusing a dental hygiene degree.  I am the “mother” of an 8 year old Chihuahua dog.  In my spare time I’m often running, reading, and listening to music.
