Meet The Team

Dr. Gina Kessler

DDS

Dr. Gina Kessler is known as “the local orthodontist” serving Denver and surrounding communities. Every day, she brings her gentle manner, upbeat personality, and genuine interest in caring for others to her work.

As a mother of four, no one understands the emotional, physical and financial strains that orthodontia can put on family life better than Dr. Kessler. But she also sees the lifetime of value in having a spectacular smile, both in the way that it looks and in its functionality.

Dr. Kessler’s interest in dentistry developed after she spent three years in braces as a teen. Emerging with more than just straight and beautiful teeth, her new mouth inspired her to smile more often and feel happier. From there she took notice how her smiles were reciprocated and began to wonder how she could help others using orthodontic treatments.
Dr. Kessler is a graduate of the University of Illinois College of Dentistry. She served a one-year residency at Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center in Chicago, and following that, she was accepted into the University of Michigan Masters Program in Orthodontics.

Over the years, Dr. Kessler has spoken on a variety of topics at different CDA, ADA and WDA events. Topics have included how to balance a career and family life as well as successfully juggling a business partnership with a spouse.

Along with her husband Brett, she has been a participant in a monthly interdisciplinary study group with other local dentists to discuss cases and support one another in recommendations for treatment.

As family-focused as Dr. Kessler is, it’s only natural that her community involvement directly relates to her three children. A Girl Scout until her sophomore year of high school, she still feels strongly that the organization provided her with the tools that make her who she is today.

With that inspiration in mind, she brought the Girl Scouts to her daughter Abbey’s school and has been a troop leader there for the past five years.

Dr. Kessler is also actively involved in the Parent Association of Logan School (PALS), where she has sat on numerous committees and helped raise money for the school’s various programs. Prior to that, she was on the parent committee at the preschool her children attended.

Today, Kessler divides her time between the dental practice and her being a full-time mom to Abbey, Max, Sydney and Riley. In the precious few spare moments when she is not focused on her whole-health approach to orthodontics, she runs, works out and recently earned her black belt in Te Da Kuen Do.

Dr. Diana Brigham

DMD

As an adept dental practitioner, Dr. Diana Brigham has helped countless patients achieve their oral health goals. Her dedication to quality care and gentle approach has transformed many smiles. Dr. Brigham provides general, cosmetic, and surgical dentistry services. Utilizing modern technology, she completes comprehensive dentistry including dental implants, esthetic crowns and veneers, TMJ therapy and sleep apnea treatment.

Dr. Brigham’s ultimate goal is to provide outstanding dental care while delivering exceptional customer service. She feels fortunate to be part of a team of highly experienced professionals who make patients feel at home.

Dr. Brigham’s formative years as part of a military family encouraged her to dedicate her life to serving others.
Dr. Brigham attended the University of Virginia, studying biology and anthropology while volunteering at the local free dental clinic and participating in dental volunteer trips to Nicaragua and Costa Rica. She completed her doctorate at the Tufts University School of Dental Medicine, where she earned her DMD degree, cum laude. After completing her degree, she chose to continue her education with a post-graduate program at the San Francisco Veterans Hospital.
Outside of the office, Dr. Brigham enjoys spending time in the mountains, which is what brought her to Colorado. She stays active running, hiking and snowboarding.

Monique has been with the TCDO team since December 2003. Before joining our team, she worked as a dental assistant at another practice for 3 years. She started as an assistant, and then moved to the position of Clinical Director.

Stephanie

Registered Dental Hygienist

Born and raised in Fairbanks, Alaska, Stephanie moved to Denver with her husband after she graduated from dental hygiene school. When she’s not in the office, Stephanie enjoys spending time with her husband and their Old English Bulldog named Lily. They enjoy the outdoors through biking, taking hikes and practicing Bikram Yoga.

Stephanie’s favorite part about working for TCDO is building long-term relationships with her patients and empowering them to control their own oral health.
