2022 marked a special time for me, as I celebrated 30 years with the practice as a registered dental hygienist. It has been an honor sharing these years with you. I love dentistry, but most of all, I have loved caring for all of you and your families. It is my hope to continue my passion for dentistry for years to come.
My education started with The Ohio State University College of Dentistry, RDH, with licensure in local anesthetic and nitrous oxide administration from the University of Colorado. I have enjoyed the changes in dentistry with the advancement in periodontology, implant care, TMJ management, emerging technologies, and esthetics. My goal is to provide high-quality care for optimal wellness through prophylactic care and education. In my spare time, I enjoy working outside gardening and helping my husband manage the family farm. I have two grown children who have chosen biology and agriculture as their professions. Colorado is such a beautiful state to live and remain active. Life is full and I am truly blessed.
Mary was raised on the coast of the beautiful sunshine state, Florida. Upon graduating High School, she spent three years as a dental assistant in the U.S. Army, stationed at Ft. Bragg, NC. After her enlistment, Mary returned home to continue a degree in dental hygiene from Florida Southwestern State College, graduating with honors, Phi Theta Kappa, in 2002. In January 2020 Mary left her job of 17 years, and her hometown, for adventure. She is beyond happy to have found an amazing dental family here, in Aurora, CO, who share in her same philosophy of patient focused quality care and kindness. When not at work, she’s busy living healthy, enjoying all Colorado has to offer, listening to live music and traveling when possible. Her two grown daughters are the greatest blessings of her life.
Leslie has spent her entire life around the dental field, growing up in her father’s practice in Prescott, AZ. From early on, it was her goal to pursue dental hygiene as a profession. Her passion for dentistry led her to the University of Colorado, where she earned a bachelor’s degree in dental hygiene before beginning her career in the Denver area. With more than a decade of experience as a dental hygienist, Leslie enjoys caring for patients and considers her favorite part of the job to be those relationships formed over many years. She loves seeing generations of patients and their families who visit the office on any given day at Mauck and Ricci.
Leslie and her husband, Patrick, stay busy with their two boys: Patrick and William. You can also find her cheering on the Broncos, enjoying a good meal, and spending time with family & friends.
Growing up between Colorado and Michigan, Katrina went to hygiene school out of high school based on the suggestion of her mother. In addition to two associate degrees, she also holds a B.S. in Dental Hygiene from the University of Michigan. Katrina loves forming relationships with patients and educating them on preventive care and ways patients can better their oral health. Katrina loves working at Dr. Mauck and Ricci’s office because there are “so many kind and wonderful patients, the staff is very loving, fun and are dedicated to their patients as well as the quality of the work they do”. When she’s not practicing at the dental office, she is also a Pilates instructor.
When she is not practicing or teaching Pilates, Katrina enjoys traveling, walking with friends, snowboarding, reading, hiking & spending time with family and friends.

Now this is a story all about how my life got flipped turned upside down, and I'd like to take a minute so stay right there, I'll tell you how I became the front office admin here. In Southeast Aurora born and raised, I ran track and played ball most of my days, graduated from Rangeview in 2003, and moved on to a College in KC. In 2007, came along my son, who goes to Smoky Hill High and is almost done. I spend all my free time at the Varsity games, the players never disappoint and they always entertain.
Apollo is my pup and he is 4 months old, he's been a wonderful addition, just a little hard to control. Fast forward to 2020, I stumbled upon this office accidentally, hopped into my car after I got the call, and interviewed with the Docs, which was a ball. I accepted the offer and I joined the team, after years of searching, I am the happiest I could ever be!

I am a true native of Colorado, as is my husband of 27 years. I have been a board-certified dental assistant, as well as an EDDA (expanded duty dental assistant) for thirty-plus years now. In those years I cannot count the number of people who had their lives changed because they got their smiles back. The fact I was a small part of that still brings me joy today. My absolute joy in life is my son, Eli. He's an amazing kid who teaches me something new every day.
