Meet the Fort Collins Team of Spring Creek Dental
Originally from Rock Lake, North Dakota, Amber Amerman is a dedicated Dental Hygienist since 2005 with unwavering commitment to our patients’ oral health. A graduate of the North Dakota State College of Science, Amber enjoys fostering long-term relationships with patients and celebrating the joys of life with them. Ever active, Amber and her husband, Josh, love to snow ski, water ski, wake board, camp, read and pursue home improvement projects. They are devoted parents to an adorable pug.
With her enthusiasm and positive outlook, Jamie Hopkins has been faithfully serving our Fort Collins patients since 2001. A native of Loveland, CO, Jamie worked as a dental assistant for several years before pursuing a degree in dental hygiene at the Community College of Denver Health and Science Center. Her excitement for people coupled with clear communications helps her to create lifelong, trusting relationships with patients. Jamie embraces prevention as a pathway to achieving excellent oral health. Jamie lives out the saying that, “Happiness depends on what you can give. Not what you can get.” When she’s not giving her excellent care to our Spring Creek Dental patients, Jamie enjoys camping, boating, four wheeling, shopping, sports of all kinds and spending time with her family.
With her warmth, open communications and intuitive nature, you’ll leave Rhonda’s chair with clean teeth and a refreshed attitude. Since 1999, Rhonda has served our Fort Collins, CO patients with care and compassion. She is grateful for the opportunity to improve patients’ dental health and ultimately, their systemic health, with dental hygiene interventions. Born and raised in Casper, Wyoming, Rhonda is a graduate of Sheridan College, and she also earned expanded functions licensure from California. With her husband, Steve, Rhonda is raising two teenagers, Samantha and Michael. In her spare time, Rhonda loves to scrapbook and to play with her dog, Riley. She ascribes to the words of G.B. Stern who said, “Silent gratitude isn’t much use to anyone.”
Jacqueline contributes high energy and a welcoming spirit to her role as chairside assistant at Spring Creek Dental. She made her way from Vancouver, British Columbia to southern California, where she met and married her wonderful husband, Kurt, in 1992. In 2006, they moved from southern California to raise their two beautiful children in Fort Collins. Though Jacqueline offers over twenty years of experience as a dental assistant, she strives to live by the motto, “You are either green and growing, or ripe and rotting.” When she is not caring for our patients, she enjoys spending time with her family, working out and escaping with a good book. Jacqueline looks forward to becoming acquainted with our patients in the coming years.

She recently completed a year-long Medical Administration program at Front Range Community College. Having been a patient here for a "very long time," she has really enjoyed the transition to working with the team!

Their two grown children live and work in the Fort Collins community. These days Kim spends her spare time with her two new Scottie puppies. She is looking forward to assisting you here at Spring Creek Dental!
