This is Melanie’s first dental field experience. She worked for Skanska (a local construction company) before they closed their local office down and now she’s been working here, at our front office, for a year. She was born and raised here in Cortez, CO. She just got married to Gene Smith. They now live in Mancos, CO. where her husband was born and raised and where he can stay closer to work and stay active as a volunteer firefighter. They love to camp, hunt, fish, and spend time with their close family and friends.
