Meet the Team

Arcea Chavez

Office Manager

Hi, my name is Arcea and I will be the first to welcome you to Clover Kids Dentistry! I was born and raised in San Jose, California, but I have been living in Colorado for many years. My husband and I love trying new restaurants around Denver and hanging out in our backyard with our three dogs. My hobbies include reading, drawing, listening to music, and re-watching Marvel movies and TV shows. Kids are full of energy and fun to work with especially when they share their special interests with us. I am so proud to be part of Clover Kids! I love working with an awesome team whose energy contributes greatly to the positive experiences our patients and their families have at Clover Kids.

Sierra Wheatley

Lead Dental Assistant

Hello! My name is Sierra and I love being a Dental Assistant at Clover Kids Dentistry. I love green tea and my favorite Disney movie is Lilo and Stitch. Growing up and living my whole life in Colorado has been filled with many adventures. My family and I enjoy dirt biking, camping, and travelling to other destinations. Growing up, my parents always inspired me to do my best and gave me opportunities to do that. After finishing high school and entering the dental world I knew I wanted to work with children so here I am! I love the personalities of each child and being able to teach them the importance of oral hygiene care in a fun way with such a fun team! For some, the dentist can be frightening but at Clover, we ensure all our kiddos are super comfortable and look forward to coming back. We love taking care of their healthy smiles!

Ashlei Hardy

Patient Coordinator

Hello there! My name is Ashlei and I am from Harbor City, CA. I have lived in Colorado since 2010 but love to go back home as often as possible. I love going to see new movies at the theater and working out with my spouse to an awesome playlist! Sam Cooke is my absolute favorite artist and his music holds a very special place in my heart. My guilty pleasure is pretty much anything mint chocolate – yum! The best part of my job as the Patient Coordinator is working with kids! I find that being around children always takes me back to the good ole’ days when life wasn’t so serious and there wasn’t any care in the world. It is definitely a nice reminder to slow down, be a little more carefree and gentle on yourself, and live in the moment – especially in this fast adult life that seems to just pass us by!

Jessica Cabral

Dental Assistant

Hello my name is Jessica! I was born and raised in Denver, Colorado. Growing up I spent a lot of time riding horses, going to rodeos with my dad, and helping my dad feed the animals at our family ranch. We had horses, chickens, cows and at one point we even had pigs and goats.

Having this time with my dad growing up has taught me how to be gentle and patient which is a huge part of my career now. I love being a Dental Assistant at Clover Kids Dentistry because I truly enjoy working with kids. I love seeing them grow and develop into their little personalities at every visit. The best part of the day is seeing the kids leave with a happy healthy smile.

Nataly Najera

Dental Assistant

Hello, my name is Nataly. I am a Dental Assistant at Clover Kids Dentistry, a job I absolutely love. I was born and raised in Colorado. I enjoy experiencing all the beautiful mountains that we have with my family who mean the world to me. I am one of five kids, four brothers and me. I have two amazing little girls of my own and they are the reason I love working with kids. It is such a gift being able to treat every single child that walks in the way I would want my kids to be treated. I love that I can make a difference in a child’s dental experience making every single visit a positive one! Working with kids is the most rewarding job in my opinion because the smiles and giggles you receive at the end of each visit are so genuine and sweet. They will always tell you how it is and are the best patients to work with. All of this makes this job worthwhile!se Description

Kristopher Mendoza, DDS

Dental Anesthesiologist, Rocky Mountain Dental Anesthesia

Hello! My name is Dr. Kristopher Mendoza and I am a Board Certified Dentist Anesthesiologist. I attended UCLA School of Dentistry for dental school and residency in Dental Anesthesiology. Following residency, I moved to Colorado in order to spend as much time in the mountains as possible. I decided to become an anesthesiologist because I love to work with kids and help them to get the care they are otherwise unable to receive. Since moving here, I have been lucky enough to work with Dr. Betty Yip and I love to help facilitate her work of creating beautiful smiles for the Clover Kids!
