April Larsen
Office Manager

It’s rare these days to come across someone as gracious and good-spirited as April. Therefore, when you first meet her, you would never imagine that she owns a Remington .270 and is quite handy with it. But it’s true. Indeed, she has spent many a morning hunting elk with her family, hiking up steep mountain slopes even in the bitter cold, with a large pack on her back and rifle in hand. After experiences like that, nothing phases April, and we believe this explains how she’s able to remain so calm and pleasant under any circumstance.

April grew up in Bailey, a small mountain community about an hour’s drive southwest of Denver. Her father’s family has lived in that area for generations, while her mother’s side of the family has deep roots in Arvada and Westminster. While attending Platte Canyon High School, April became attracted to the dental profession, and afterward she attended the Pima Medical Institute in Denver. Upon graduating with a Dental Assistant Certification, she worked in a multiple-doctor practice in the Arvada area as an Expanded Duties Dental Assistant (EDDA), and then joined another in Arvada as a Financial Insurance Coordinator. In November of 2009, she joined Advanced Dental Arts.

April enjoys working at Advanced Dental Arts because she has the time and freedom to interact with the patients on a more personal level than at previous employers. She also appreciates how Dr. Simon takes his time with each patient. Not only does he know them by name, he can (according to April) tell you what they had for dinner last week.

Outside of the office, April spends much of her time with her young son Christian, born in 2004. She routinely brings him to the Downtown Aquarium to indulge his fascination with sharks, and nurture his dream of becoming a marine biologist. April also accompanies Christian three times each week to his karate lessons. Other evenings, April makes excursions to the Flatiron Mall in search of shoes, purses and relaxation. On Sunday mornings, you’ll find April at the Centerpointe Community Church in Arvada, where she teaches a Sunday school class for youngsters age five and under.
