Denice’s hygiene career began after graduating from Youngstown State in Ohio. She moved away from the northeast in search of warmer climates. After nearly a decade of California living, she decided to move to the official sunshine state to settle down. Florida has been her home now for more than 20 years and she found the perfect office for her at Boulevard Dental.
The thing Denice enjoys most about working as a hygienist is getting to know her patients as people and helping them live a healthier life. Our office always focuses on quality and compassionate care. Achieving good dental health is very important since it is known that there is a strong connection with overall health.
Denice has been married for about 20 years and she has two wonderful daughters. In her spare time she enjoys entertaining friends with backyard BBQs, swimming, going to the beach, spending time with her daughters and planning their next vacation or weekend trip; sunshine calls and she must answer!
Wendy is a native Floridian who grew up in Plant City. She moved to Pinellas County for hygiene school at St. Pete College and she has stayed ever since. She has worked at Boulevard Dental for more than 10 years and she believes that it’s fun having a place you love to work at. Her goal is to make patients feel at ease and comfortable while they visit us. Wendy is dedicated to providing comprehensive oral healthcare to her patients as well as educating them, and she does it all with a little southern charm. She has a wonderful husband, son, and daughter. Outside of work, she loves spending every minute with her family and friends.
Colleen began her dental hygiene career later in life after realizing that this was her true calling. With the help and support of her family and friends, she really does have her “dream job.”
Having the opportunity to teach patients about the importance of their oral health is very important to her. One of Colleen’s goals is that her patients learn new information that will help them to achieve their best oral health. She is here for her patients to take care of any questions or concerns they may have.
Colleen grew up in the Midwest, where she met her husband, Todd. They have been married 16 years and have a daughter, Paris. They knew they wanted to be in a warmer climate and as luck would have it, Todd landed a job in Orlando where she went to hygiene school. Colleen graduated from Valencia College and, shortly after, their family moved to Madeira Beach. She really does love, enjoy, and appreciate her beach life and all the exciting activities this area has to offer.
Martin is one of our Dental Hygienists. He earned his Bachelor’s Degree from St. Leo University, with a major in Psychology, along with a minor in both Biology and Chemistry. When this young man is not busy making teeth pretty, he takes full of advantage of time off by spending time on the beach, playing sports, and making memories with good friends and family. Martin is full of life, compassion, positivity, loyalty, and humor. His goal as a Dental Hygienist here at Boulevard Dental, is to help each patient realize the importance of oral care, and strive for good hygiene.
Leslee is one of our registered dental hygienists! She graduated from St. Petersburg College in the Dental Hygiene Program, is n2o2 certified, and has an area of expertise with periodontal treatment. Her mission here at Boulevard Dental is to help and educate patients on maintaining their optimal oral health. When Leslee has free-time… she enjoys relaxing, by partaking in what she enjoys most – baseball, boating, and the beach!
