Meet Us

Dr. Shaun wanted the perfect sister-in-law. Dr. Ash wanted the perfect husband. Fate intervened when they met at Utah Valley University! After eight months of being study partners in organic chemistry, Dr. Ashleigh finally agreed to go on a blind date with Dr. Shaun’s husband's twin brother! Long story short, both Dearing families have toddlers, live within minutes of each other, and take annual couples trips.

    Kelsey grew up in the beautiful state of Colorado, but came out to Utah to attend school at Utah Valley University. The dental field has always been an interest of hers and she wanted to incorporate that into her future career. Dental hygiene was the plan, so she graduated from a dental assisting program to get a better feel of the back office lifestyle. Though she enjoys all the different tasks and duties of an assistant she wanted to expand her knowledge and skill set and became our front office manager. Kelsey has stepped in on several occasions and proved her intelligence, hard work, determination and dedication to everything she sets her mind to while succeeding in it all. When Kelsey isn’t in the office you can find her working towards her Bachelors in Marketing, traveling, spending time with family, in the sun, or in a plane with her new husband who’s a pilot.

    Kumari comes from a very strong dental background that has influenced some of her earliest memories. Her dad, a dentist in Washington, and mom, a nurse who taught pathophysiology to dental hygiene students, instilled in her a love for dentistry at a very young age along with 3 other siblings who have also become hygienists. She began working and assisting in her dad’s practice and then worked 10+ years as a dental assistant before graduating in the inaugural class of Utah College of Dental Hygiene in 2007. Since then, she’s loved caring for members of the Utah community as a Registered Dental Hygienist and serves on the UCDH Program Advisory Committee.
    A highlight of her career has been accompanying the University of Washington on a dental/medical brigade mission to Panama in 2011.
    Kumari was adopted from India and raised in Seattle by her amazing parents who adopted 5 other children as well as having 6 of their own.
    Kumari’s favorite activity is spending a long day at the beach, soaking up the sun outdoors, with her husband and 3 boys.
