Chris Hammelev, RDH comes from a peak performing dental team in Southern Colorado, which utilizes Hygiene Mastery. She has enjoyed being a hygienist for over 25 years, but has also been a very successful treatment coordinator as well as office manager. She is a member of the ADHA, AOSH, and ALD. Chris has lead outstanding hygiene departments in Chicago and Colorado Springs for the last 19 years and has created custom periodontal programs for each of her offices. These programs give the patients the treatment they need, while greatly increasing profits for the office. She has coached her teams on co-diagnosis and communication skills, resulting in extraordinary productivity in the doctor’s schedule.
Although exceptional patient care has always been Chris’ main focus; she has also helped design and implement the “red carpet experience” for her offices. This experience gives personalized patient care from the first phone call and throughout the entire relationship. This establishes a bond of mutual trust making patients not only satisfied, but loyal.
Her vast experience within private practice allows her to coach teams to establish and maintain patient relationships, improve staff communication and accountability, utilize systems and protocols, create and achieve goals, and ultimately attain the practice vision.
Chris, her husband, Mark, and their sons, Alex and Nick, love listening to jazz, going to concerts, camping, and hiking with their Siberian Husky, Nala.
