Our Team

We’re proud of our staff’s many years of experience and dedication to top quality dentistry – and their ability to make our patients feel welcome and comfortable.  Here’s a little bit about each of them…

Jennifer Bauer, Hygienist

Jennifer relocated to the Roaring Fork Valley from the Front Range and joined the Carbondale Family Dental team in the summer of 2018.  She has been in the dental field for almost 30 years, and enjoys helping patients have healthy mouths, beautiful smiles and be healthy overall, using natural products when available. Jennifer is passionate about educating her patients in the importance of oral hygiene.  She likes the interpersonal relationships, conservative approach and team feel here at Carbondale Family Dental.  In her spare time, Jennifer enjoys cooking, hiking, biking, and spending time with her kids and family.  

Karen Schreiber, Hygienist

There are those people that love to get their teeth cleaned, and then there are the rest of the people who come because they understand the overall health benefits of regular cleanings but just wish they could leave their teeth at the door and pick them up an hour later.  Karen enjoys the opportunity to help people feel welcome, cared for, and informed. She likes for people to leave our office feeling not only smooth clean teeth but also to feel empowered to further their care, on their own, on a daily basis and also informed to make good dental choices that will lead to more comfort and fewer dental visits.  Karen completed her education in dental hygiene at The University of Texas Health Science Center of Houston Dental Branch, where she received the Hu-Friedy Golden Scaler Award for outstanding clinical skills and professional judgement. She has practiced for 25 years both in the US and in Switzerland.  When not making patients feel at home in our practice, she is making her home in Carbondale, with her husband and twin boys.  She loves cooking, hiking , yoga and reading.
BelemBelem Villalovos, Hygienist
Belem received her degree in dental hygiene from Colorado Northwestern Community College in Rangely in 2017, where she graduated at the top of her class and was given the Western Society of Periodontology Award for clinical excellence. In addition to her hygienist training, Belem graduated from dental school in Peru in 2008, has attained specialized advanced training with dental lasers, and is extremely dedicated to providing the highest level of service with the latest technologies available.
Belem was born and raised in Peru. She is fluent in Spanish, English, and French. In 2009, she did an exchange program in Vail, Colo., and quickly decided to call the mountains her home. When not at the office, Belem spends time with her son, Joaquin, along with their Goldendoodle, Buddy. Outside of dentistry, her passions include hiking, running, crossfit, yoga, and training for the occasional endurance event.

Karla Mejia Garcia, Hygienist
Karla joined our team in 2021 as our first intern due to her interest in the dental field.  She learned all the ins and outs of the profession while supporting our hygiene team.  In the fall of 2022, Karla enrolled in Dental Hygiene school in New Mexico.  After graduating from Hygiene School, Karla joined our practice as a Dental Hygienist.  We are so happy to have her on our team to continue her career in dentistry. Karla is a native of the Roaring Fork Valley and speaks Spanish.
