The Team




Kristi - Office Manager

I am the office manager and love working with our team and with our patients. I have been working with patients in the medical and dental field for over 15 years. I was born and raised here in the Durango area where I enjoyed the outdoors and playing competitive sports. I went to college in Kansas where I received an early education and coaching degree. My passion for sports continues as I still enjoy competing in volleyball and softball, and serving as administrator for the youth wrestling and football program in Bayfield.

I am happily married with three amazing boys, Dylan, Keaton and Easton. Together we enjoy camping, jeeping in Moab, and playing at the lake.



Crystal - Office Coordinator

I am the Office Coordinator and a Board Certified Dental Assistant. I have been in the dental profession for 9 years. I was born and raised here in Colorado. Growing up my passion was being on my family’s farm and ranch and competing in junior and high school rodeos. In 1996 I graduated High School and moved to Aztec, NM to attend San Juan College Nursing program. There I joined our local fire department and received my EMT license. While I loved caring for people I took on a new and rewarding adventure of becoming a mom. I have one boy Dillon and three girls Hailey, Lacey and Cambree. We enjoy sports, camping, hiking, fishing, hunting and gardening – All about the OUTDOORS!!!

I am very blessed and honored to be working with Dr. Rothchild and his wonderful and sweet team! I look forward to meeting you all!!


Tiffany - Clinical Assistant

Hi my name is Tiffany. I am a fifth generation here in Durango and have lived here my whole life. I attended Needham Elementary, Miller Middle School, and Graduated from Durango High. I attended collage at Fort Lewis for my first year and then Pueblo Community College. I started in the dental field right out of high school in an orthodontic office.There I received my Orthodontic Technician Certification. I worked in the orthodontic field for 8 years, and have been a dental assistant for 7 years. I have always worked with a holistic dentist and I would not have it any other way.I have been happily married to my husband and high school sweetheart Michael for 16 years. Michael has owned a successful welding business for 15 years. We have a son Keyton (12) who is involved with everything. Keyton plays football, basketball, and baseball. He is in 4-H and raises pigs and cattle, and is on the 4-H livestock judging team. He also has played the upright bass since 2nd grade.I truly love living here in Durango. There has been many changes but the one thing that has not changed is the beauty of it all. I enjoy being on our 80 acre ranch, working the land and the animals. I also enjoy camping and snowmobiling. But what brings me the most joy is my family.


Bandy - Clinical Assistant

Welcome to our dental family!  I have a lifelong passion for holistic living. After completing college for Business Management and Accounting, I felt a higher calling within helping others and became a massage therapist. I have enjoyed my own private practice since 2006. Joining Doctor Rothchild’s team in July-2016 has been a true blessing to continue my journey within holistic health care. I completed my Dental Assistant studies with Penn Foster and plan to continue gaining more knowledge in the dental field. Being a part of such a dedicated and compassionate team truly makes our office stand out; I look forward to being a part of your journey to optimal dental health!

I love to travel, listen to live music and spending my extra time exploring the outdoors with my sweet corgi, Gracie! We do everything from white water rafting, paddle boarding, riding horses, and adventuring the mountains.


Patti - Dental Hygienist

I am the dental hygienist for Dr. Rothchild. I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Dental Hygiene from Carroll College in Helena, Montana. I am originally from Southern California but have lived in the Durango area for the past 18 years. I cannot imagine living anywhere else; I am here to stay and I love it here. I have been practicing dental hygiene for 38 years and I am still very excited and passionate about it. My goals when seeing patients is to provide the most comfortable and relaxing dental experience. I have been told by many patients that I am gentle and very thorough. I look forward to meeting and getting to know each of our patients as well as educating them on achieving their dental goals and overall health goals.

In my free time, my hobbies are horseback riding, golfing, tennis, waterskiing and snow skiing. I am happily married to my husband Tom. We just celebrated 15 years of marriage.



Marie - Dental Hygienist

Hello! I am a Dental Hygienist and the newest member of Doctor Rothchild's team. I absolutely love the passion Doc and his team share for the care of our patients! I find myself looking forward to the future here and learning more about Doc's philosophy and holistic approach within dentistry. I'm proud to say that I have been given the gift of desire to learn more...I retired from my "boy job" at a coal fired power plant in 2007 and actually went back to school at 48 years old!

Enrolling in San Juan College's excellent Dental Hygiene program was the beginning of a very rewarding and positive new beginning for me. After many-many years at the power plant, I like to think of it as my "girl job!" Becoming a Dental Hygienist has allowed me to do something for people that they aren't able to do for themselves. Educating and giving patients the tools they need to make healthy positive changes in their lives has been the most rewarding part of this new career!

I was born in Durango, CO and raised just across the border in Farmington, NM. This is where I had the privilege of raising two beautiful sons, whom blessed me with six wonderful grandchildren! My love Charles, is a humorous, loving, kind, Christian man. I am so excited to spend the rest of my life with him! We have two very spoiled barn cats, Gray May and Dash, they are the best security against mice and other critters. Charles and I love baseball - GO RED SOX! We also love camping and adventuring the mountains in Colorado like mountain goats and climbing in Moab, UT crawling the hot rocks like lizards. I love these wonderful places God has given us to play at!
