Lisa Helland, RDH (Registered Dental Hygienist)

I grew up in northwest Iowa and after high school, went to Minnesota State University-Mankato graduating in 1985 with a degree in dental hygiene. I then made my way from the plains to the Colorado mountains where I have worked in both periodontal and general dentistry practices in Colorado Springs and Woodland Park.

Knowing that many people do not have dental insurance, I opened Summit Dental Hygiene (an alternative dental hygiene practice) in 1996 in Woodland Park to provide patients with a convenient, stress-free setting where they can receive cost-effective dental hygiene preventive care. I enjoy working with all age groups-children to seniors!

I have 2 grown children, Kelsey and Christopher, who I love spending lots of time with when possible!

Lelah Jackson, RDH (Registered Dental Hygienist)

I’m originally from a small farming community in Missouri and moved to Colorado in 1997 to be closer to my sister and her family. In 2005, I graduated from Pueblo Community College with a degree in Dental Hygiene and was awarded The Certificate of Merit for Outstanding Contribution in the Development of Special Projects for Persons with Disabilities.

I have worked in general dentistry practices in Colorado Springs and Woodland Park since 2005 and enjoy providing care for patients of all ages.

I love Woodland Park and Teller County and want to provide comprehensive, affordable, individualized oral healthcare for all of my patients. I pride myself in making my patients feel comfortable and at ease while at each appointment.

I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, I have an appreciation for all things relating to food, a soft spot for dogs (especially beagles), and a love for travel.
