Meet Dr. Lisa

Lisa Phillips, DDS

Connecting with families and creating lifelong relationships with them brings me so much joy. I love creating a joyful, fun, safe environment for kids and their families, so children learn healthy habits and want to go to the dentist when they are adults.

I love building trust with anxious children and helping them grow into feeling fearless in the dental office.

Seeing kids love their smiles and helping them build strong self-esteem is a huge goal for me.

I love getting to know each child as a person and seeing them mature in their own, wonderfully unique way.

I love seeing children excited to come to my dental office. Their exuberance, their laughter, and their smiles, make my day!

Having the ability to impact each child’s life in a positive way, nurturing and supporting them as they become a young adult, and ensuring they are excited and motivated to take care of their smile, is the most rewarding experience.

I am fortunate to be a pediatric dentist!

Beyond the Office

Raised in Clarksburg, West Virginia, I have lived in Colorado since 2008. I moved here for my Pediatric Dental Specialty Residency at Children's Hospital Colorado and fell in love with Colorado. I have lived with my family in North Thornton since 2011. Cody, my husband, and I have two young children: son, Jaren Kumar and daughter, Isla Hope. My time with them is treasured, whether we’re off for an adventure in the mountains, enjoying a game night, hanging out at home with friends, or volunteering at my children's school.

We are active in our church community, The Northwest Vineyard, where I am one of two elders in the church and part of the worship team.

I serve as a board member for the nonprofit organization, Kids in Need of Dentistry (KIND).

Whether I am in the office, at home with family and friends, or out and about in the community, I strive to be positive, supportive, and nurturing.

Being a pediatric dentist is one way I serve and strengthen others. I love what I do and am humbled to be entrusted with your child’s smile.
