Meet Our Team

Blake – Dental Hygienist


My name is Blake, and I am the new dental hygienist for Family First Dental. I grew up on a farm in a small Kansas town, Valley Falls, and currently reside in Lawrence. I am a huge sports fan and am always up for a good discussion about the Royals, Jayhawks, or any other team.

I graduated from Johnson County Community College in May of 2016, and I am currently continuing my education at the University of Missouri – Kansas City. I have always been interested in working in the dental field, and I love having the opportunity to get to know patients and help them enjoy the excellent oral health that they deserve. I enjoy being a part of the Family First Dental team, and I’m very excited to continue to serve our wonderful patients!

 

Nayeli – Office Manager


My name is Nayeli and I am the Office Manager for Family First Dental. I joined the team in 2017 and graduated from Concorde Career College in 2012. I have completed certifications in CPR and the administration of nitrous oxide. I also have certifications in coronal polishing, placing and condensing amalgam, placing and finishing composite, dental sealant placement, and X-rays. I love working with my team, they are like family. I also enjoy the chance to see my patients leave with smiles on their faces and a new level of confidence. When not in the office, I enjoy traveling and shopping.

Kourtnee – Front Desk/Dental Assistant


My name is Kourtnee and I am a dental assistant and work the front desk for Family First Dental. I joined the team in 2016 after graduating from Concorde Career College. I have also completed my certification in administering CPR. I love my job, as every day brings something new, there’s simply never a dull moment! Our patients are super nice and I appreciate that they put their trust in me. When not in the office, I often volunteer with House of Hope and provide dental assisting to the military.

My favorite quote: “She believed she could so she did.”

Veronica – Dental Assistant

Veronica joined our practice in 2021. She loves working as part of a team and being treated like she is part of a family. She deeply appreciates the patience she was given when she first started — especially Dr. Cook when she assisted him for the first time. She also enjoys learning new things on the job that help benefit the office. She loves talking to patients and learning about their lives — past, present, and future. 

When she’s not at work, Veronica loves doing makeup and lashes and really anything related to cosmetics and skincare.
