Meet The Staff
I was born and raised in Rapid City and I grew up hiking and camping in the Black Hills with my family. I received my Fine Arts Degree in Ceramics at the University of South Dakota. In my spare time I enjoy cooking, making pottery, spending time with my friends, and traveling to new places. I work the front desk at Boulevard Dental and I look forward to meeting and getting to know all of our patients!
Hello, my name is April Hansen. I am one of the hygienists here at Boulevard Dental. I was born and raised in Hot Springs, South Dakota. I attended the University of South Dakota and received my dental hygiene degree. I love doing anything outdoors; snowboarding, hunting, fishing, kayaking and hiking. I am very happy to be a part of the Boulevard Dental team.
I grew up in a small town in Eastern Canada. My very first dental job was as an unexperienced chairside assistant filling in for my pregnant girlfriend while she went on maternity leave in 1984. When she came back, I stayed on. Since then I have assisted in periodontics, surgery, general dentistry and front desk duties. Although I eventually went on to get a nursing degree, my heart has stayed in dentistry.
In 1994, we arrived in Rapid City, SD compliments of the USAF. When my husband retired from that career, we decided there was no place we would rather be. We have no “spare” time as we are busy enjoying our family, friends and furbaby in the great outdoors of the Black Hills.
I am a South Dakota Native and I call Rapid City my home. I received my degree in dental hygiene from Sheridan College in Sheridan, Wyoming. I like spending time with my family and my three year old son. We enjoy getting out and about in the Black Hills. I have been enjoying getting to know our patients, and look forward to meeting many more!
I am originally from Rapid City, but I spent the last few years living in Colorado. I recently moved back to Rapid and I now live with my two beautiful children. My friends and family are a huge part of my life, and I enjoy spending my free time with them. I am a dental assistant at Boulevard Dental and I love chatting with our patients and getting to know them!
Hi! I’m Tina and I have lived in Rapid City nearly my entire life. I love the Black hills and the people who live here. I enjoy traveling, camping, and boating as well as Bible Studies, cooking, pottery and canvas painting classes.
I worked at Evan’s orthodontics for 14 years and left the orthodontic world to devote my time to my loving husband and three wonderful children. I love connecting and catching up with family and friends over a good meal or a cup of coffee. I am blessed at last to be a grandmother and thoroughly enjoy this season of my life!
I have recently joined Boulevard Dental Practice and take pleasure in caring for patients once again! I can’t wait to meet you!
