Meet The Staff
Dr. Matthew Lee
As a proud veteran, I try to live out the Air Force Core Values in my life and how I operate NorthStar Dental: integrity first, service before self, excellence in all we do. That’s where I am today, but let me tell you how I got here!
I grew up in Oklahoma, but my favorite memories as a child were frequent trips to Colorado to enjoy the mountains and the great outdoors. I always longed to be in the mountains and even at a young age, I hoped to one day call Colorado my home.
Despite having no family members in the healthcare industry, my passion for helping people and serving others eventually led me to pursue a dental degree from the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center. I applied for and was offered the prestigious opportunity to serve in the US Air Force as a dentist, an honor that I was given even before my dental school training began. I saw this as a way to serve my country and finally live in Colorado, the place I had always loved so much.
Things worked out, and after graduating from dental school, I was selected as 1 of only 5 dentists in the country to attend an additional year of advanced dental training at the US Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs.
When my time at The Academy was over, my clinical skills and warm personality made me an ideal candidate to be selected for a remote assignment in Fairbanks, Alaska, and Eielson Air Force Base, where little support from dental specialists was available. It was there that I honed my skills in all aspects of general dentistry, leaning on my US Air Force Academy training and providing outstanding care to the men and women of the US Air Force and our allies.
During my time in Alaska, I was fortunate enough to help lead my clinic to multiple Air Force awards, including the Best Small Dental Clinic in the Air Force during my final year. I also worked extensively after hours and on weekends in the private sector and in a volunteer capacity to further push myself and give back to the community.
I was proud of what our team had accomplished, but I was ready to come home. For my wife and me, home meant Colorado.
My next step took me out of Alaska and close to where I started, this time to Aurora, Colorado to serve as a general dentist at the brand new Buckley Air Force Base Dental Clinic. I felt fortunate to serve my country and receive outstanding training, but I knew I had my sights set on implementing my own practice vision. I am excited to be able to serve the general public with all the skills and experience I have gained from my years serving our country.
I believe my extensive training and experience make me the ideal dentist to serve the wide range of needs of the Northern Colorado community and more specifically, you.
I hope to see you soon at NorthStar Dental.
I can’t wait to meet you!
Office Manager / Dental Assistant
Hi! I’m Kylie, the Office Manager and Dental Assistant here at NorthStar Dental. I have been in the dental field since 2011 as both an expanded duty dental assistant and working the front desk in my current position. My son Treyson is the light of my life. We love going to Elitch Gardens theme park most of the year when the weather is cooperating. When it’s too cold and snowy to ride roller coasters, we enjoy movies and hot chocolate, and building the occasional snowman.
Chances are I’m the first person who will greet you with a big smile when you visit us here at NorthStar Dental! I take my role here very seriously but also love to have fun and build relationships with our wonderful patients no matter how long they’ve been here! I look forward to meeting you soon!
Hi! I’m Patti, and I’m likely to be the first smiling face you see when you arrive at NorthStar Dental. I’ve been in the dental field for 10 years and was previously with Dr. Cure’s Greeley Complete Dentistry and I stayed on in the same role after the NorthStar Dental merger in 2023.
My husband and I enjoy hanging out with friends and family, walking our dogs, riding bikes, and traveling. I look forward to seeing you soon!
Hi there, I’m Hanna! I’ve been in dentistry since 2016 and was formerly a dental assistant with Greeley Complete Dentistry prior to the NorthStar merger in 2023. I love helping people overcome their dental anxiety and making them feel comfortable, because I know the dentist is not always a fun place to be. I try my best to give our patients the best dental experience they can have!
I am married and have one beautiful baby girl, Ruby. My husband and I also have two beloved German Shepherd dogs as well. In our free time we enjoy heading out to the dirt tracks, camping, and just spending time together.
Looking forward to meeting you soon and making your dental experience as pleasant as possible!
Hi, I’m Kelly! I’ve been in the dental field for over 35 years and stayed on with NorthStar Dental since the merger with Greeley Complete Dentistry in 2023, but was with that office for almost a decade prior. I enjoy getting to know my patients and it’s important to me that everyone feels welcome and comfortable during their visit.
My husband and I have adult twin sons who reside in Idaho. Lucky us when we get to visit them in their beautiful state.
I’m a Poudre Wilderness Volunteer member. PWV is an organization that works with the US Forest Service helping restore and maintain hiking trails. This is a rewarding way for me to enjoy and give back to nature.
I’m always up for an adventure. I love road-tripping, long hikes, pitching a tent with friends or going solo.
One of my simplest joys in life is my “deaf dog” Bell. I rescued her and taught her sign language.
I look forward to meeting you soon!

I have been working in dentistry for over 10 years and I love getting to know my patients and working with them to help them feel comfortable in the dental chair.

The two lights of my life are my husband of 12 years, Nick, and our adopted son Kristopher.
Let’s face it, being the mom of a toddler doesn’t afford me much free time. But that’s ok because I want my free time to be spent with my son and family. We love the outdoors and small mountain towns. I love my job and patients. I will work diligently alongside you, assessing your needs, encouraging and couching you for dental hygiene at home. I can’t wait to see you for your next preventive care visit!

In my free time you can find me cheering my son on at club baseball, boating, golfing, finding new restaurants to try, or hanging out with family & friends. Being a dental hygienist, I love developing relationships with my patients, showing empathy, have a gentle touch, and seeing my patients SMILE when they leave the dental chair! I look forward to taking care of your dental needs!
