Pete Medaugh, D.D.S.
Dr. Peter C. Medaugh has been practicing dentistry in the Arvada area since 1992, when he bought his current practice, Able Dentistry. His schooling was completed at the University of Colorado Dental School in 1990. Prior to that, he received his Bachelor’s Degree in Microbiology from CU-Boulder. When he graduated from Dental School, he started out his career by working as an associate at a dental practice in Downtown Denver. After two years, he decided it was time for him to be on his own, which brought him to Arvada.
Dr. Medaugh enjoys all aspects of dentistry, and he likes being able to offer a wide spectrum of dentistry to his patients in office. As of December 2014 he started placing dental implants as well as restoring (which he had been doing for the previous 20+yrs), and he has found it to be a real passion! He likes seeing the joy it brings to his patients to have such a stable and aesthetic alternative to having missing teeth. It brings him satisfaction to know that he can personally see each patient through from start to finish. We are happy to have this as an added service we can provide to our valued patients. Dr. Medaugh is currently active in the Colorado Dental Association, the Metropolitan Denver Dental Society, and the Colorado Prosthodontic Society.
Dr. Medaugh, his wife Stefanie, and their two grown children, Brian and Rachel, enjoy many activities together as a family such as skiing, fishing, boating, hunting, and Tae-kwon-do. One passion that Dr. Medaugh has that is all his own, is his 1991 Mustang. You can often catch him working on this souped up racecar in his garage. His goal is to be in the low “8’s” at Bandemier Speedway; with his current record being 8.9 seconds at 157mph. You can do it Dr. Medaugh!
April, Lindsay, & Veronica
Upon entering our office, you will be welcomed by April, and Veronica. They are our business administrators. Together they coordinate the scheduling of your appointments and the collection of your insurance and other payments. Combined, they have more than 25 years of dental experience. Veronica recently finished her Associate of Science degree at Front Range Community College. In her spare time she enjoys getting outdoors with her family- whether hiking, attending concerts, or outdoor shopping- she has all things outside covered! April has 3 sons who fill her spare time right up! She understands how you feel about wanting to be comfortable with the dental choices you make for yourself and your children. At Able Dentistry we all want you to feel well informed about the decisions you make as you navigate your dental health.
Lindsay has been working with Dr. Medaugh for over 10 years, and does a lot of work "behind the scenes". In addition to being an Expanded Duties Dental Assistant for 18 years, she helps in the front office, organizes purchasing of office equipment, and coordinates marketing efforts. We have changed her job title to "Special Projects Team Leader", as she does lots of miscellaneous jobs to help keep things running smoothly around the office! Lindsay loves her job, and loves seeing patients still, too! She wants to help patients feel welcome, and will always be happy to help answer any treatment questions you may have.
Belinda and Jessica
There may come a time when you will need treatment other than traditional teeth cleanings. This is when you will meet Belinda, and Jessica. They are our dental assistants, and both have their Expanded Duty Dental Assistant Certificates. This allows them to help Dr. Medaugh with placement of fillings, and cementing permanent crown and bridgework. They are both wonderful at helping you feel at ease during your dental treatment. Belinda and Jessica are both Colorado Natives, and can't imagine leaving! Belinda keeps very busy trying to keep up with her 3 sons and their activities. In Jessica's spare time she likes to help her husband with his business of foam sign making-their signs are amazing! No matter who you meet, you can be sure that you will get quality work done and be comfortable here at Able Dentistry.
Meghan, Bethany, & Nichole
Meet our Dental Hygienist Team! We added a third hygienist recently to help accomodate more schedules- you may see Meghan here from time to time, she is with us several days a month, and fills in for Bethany and Nichole when they are gone. Bethany recently relocated to Colorado from Connecticut, following a 10 year dream that she and her husband shared. She has been a Hygienist for 3 years, and loves getting to know her patients, and educating them so they feel empowered in making their oral health decisions. Nichole is a Colorado native, having grown up in Brighton, and graduated from Concorde Dental Hygiene School in Denver. As most natives, she loves spending her free time outdoors, hiking, snowboarding, and enjoying the mountains. You will surely be comfortable in any of their chairs!
