Meet the Team
Hello, my name is Inna. I am from the Ukraine and I moved to the U.S. in 2008 to marry the man of my dreams, who was born in Nebraska and raised in Colorado.
I used to work as a nurse in Kiev, Ukraine until 1997. In the Ukraine, a nursing degree is required to work as a dental assistant. I have enjoyed my profession as a dental assistant/nurse back home and as a dental assistant since I’ve moved to America.
I have been a proud member of Dr. Elsa’s team since 2012. We have worked diligently to foster a family environment between ourselves and our patients. I am happy every day to come to the office to be with this special group of professionals that Dr. Elsa has put together, and to provide genuine care to our patients who have become more like family.
I have really enjoyed my new experiences with my new friends and as they have introduced me to this new culture, from new ways of cooking to new ways of looking at the world. Whether it’s a new recipe or talking about our shared interests in gardening, landscaping, traveling or about our children, I never tire of learning and expanding my view of things.
Prisca joined our Front Office in 2014, and is a “passionate, loyal, eager and punctual” team member with over a decade of medical administrative and customer service experience.
She is always on-hand to help ensure that our patients are warmly welcomed, from their first phone call to their ‘Goodbye’. And at the same time, Prisca makes sure that all the administrative aspects in between are handled expeditiously.
Prisca’s friendly and professional demeanor and commitment make her a welcome addition. Her pride and joy is her son and her passions include spending time with her family, going to church, and reading.
