Meet Our Team
Dr Elizabeth Minard, DDS - Associate Dentist
I am so excited to join the team at Fleischmann Family Dentistry in offering the residents of Broomfield the most comprehensive and caring dental services in town. I cannot wait to serve you and your families and help you achieve the smile and health of your dreams.
People often ask me, “Why dentistry?” Like most things in life, my decision to attend dental school was a result of chance, opportunity and hard-work. At an early age, I became interested in a career in healthcare and envisioned a life where I could use my skills and talents to help others. After hours of job shadow during college at the University of Wisconsin- Madison, dentistry felt like a calling. I fell in love with the idea of establishing true relationships and friendships with my patients, while being able to use my hands in an artistic and creative way. Influenced by my aunt who is a dentist in Iowa, I went full-speed ahead to pursue dentistry and am so glad I did.
I graduated Magna Cum Laude from Marquette University School of Dentistry in 2014. This is an accolade I am proud of because it represents my hard-work and commitment to being the best I can be. Since graduation, I have completed numerous hours of continuing education to advance my education and am pursuing my fellowship in the Academy of General Dentistry.
What I really want you to know about me is that I love dentistry and I love people. I am passionate about achieving optimal oral and overall health and am committed to helping you do the same. I consider it a privilege and honor to work with people to help educate and motivate them to achieve their goals.
In my personal life, I am devoted to achieving optimal health through nutrition, exercise and constant learning. Being active is #1 for me. I enjoy crossfit and yoga and anything where I can get moving outside! I love to read and am always listening to podcasts and audio-books where I can continue to learn.
As you can probably tell from this bio, I love to chat. I promise to take the time to answer your questions and make you feel at ease. Please feel free to reach out to me personally if you have any questions about your dental care. I look forward to getting to know each and every one of you!
