Letter From The Dentist…

Dear Valued Patient,

I am both excited and saddened to inform you that I will be leaving Sunrise Dental Care mid July.  Some big life changes have led my fiancé and I to move to Bangor, Maine.  We have both spent time in the Northeast and are thrilled to begin the next chapter of our lives there.  

What is hard is saying goodbye after some very wonderful years at Sunrise.  I am so grateful to have gotten the opportunity to be your dentist; it has truly been a privilege to be part of the Sunrise team entrusted with your care.  Though we never know what the future holds, establishing those connections and relationships with each other is what makes the journey of life fulfilling.  I will cherish all the fun moments and conversations and I hope there will be many more to come for you at Sunrise Dental.   I wish you health and happiness!  Dr. Jean Lee

I had the pleasure to meet with Dr. Kristina Rogozhkina who is the new dentist at Sunrise and I am confident she will provide the same level of care that you are accustomed to. She is excited to join our team and cannot wait to become a part of our vibrant Boulder community. Dr Kristina is of Russian/Ukrainian descent and moved to the state of Oklahoma with her mother at age 14. She was inspired to pursue a career in dentistry due to her own traumatic dental visit experience as a child. Dr Kristina is set out to help her patients overcome their dental anxiety and is committed to ensuring that they receive the care they need in the most gentle and caring fashion. 

Dr Kristina first entered the field of dentistry in 2011, as a dental assistant. In 2017 she received her Doctor of Dental Surgery Degree from Oklahoma University College of Dentistry.  She is passionate about staying up to date with the latest advancements in the industry and is always eager to improve and expand her scope of practice. In addition to the services currently offered at our practice, Dr Kristina is looking forward to providing our patients with new treatments such as:  complicated extractions, oral conscious sedation, root canals, therapeutic Botox/Xeomin treatment for bruxism and more.

She is passionate about helping her community through volunteer work; in the past she has participated in numerous events including Oklahoma Mission of Mercy, Oklahoma Rural Access Medical, Good Shepherd Extraction Clinic as well as functions at local hospitals and elementary schools. She loves hiking and spending time outdoors; she has recently discovered snowboarding and is looking forward to improving her skills on the slopes of Colorado mountains. She is looking forward to the opportunity to care for all your dental needs! 

We are in the process of getting Dr. Kristina approved as a PPO provider with many insurance plans but it takes months to get approved.  You may receive a letter saying “we are out of network” but we will still honor the PPO fees until approved!  Also, we will continue to offer the “Sunrise Dental Care Plan” for those who do not have dental insurance. 

Tina, Cindy, Maya and Holly are still here and are looking forward to working with Dr. Kristina who will be providing additional services for you.

We truly appreciate all of you and would like to thank you for your continued support!

Your Team at Sunrise Dental Care
