At Golden Hill Family Dentistry, we wouldn’t want you to see us as just a person in a white coat wielding a metal hook. We want you to see us as caring professionals, and everyday people just like you! Take a few moments to read about our dentists and hygienists, and call our Lakewood, CO office for an appointment.

Dr. Grace E. Rudersdorf, DDS

I have been living in Denver for almost three years. I am originally from Omaha, NE where I graduated from Creighton University. My interest in dentistry was greatly influenced by my uncle, who exposed me to the rewards of improving quality of life through dentistry. I enjoy working with my hands, interacting with people, and science, so dentistry was a natural fit.

Throughout my dental career I have worked with several different mentors in a variety of office settings where I had the opportunity to treat patients from all backgrounds. I pride myself in my dedication to continuing my dental education. Most recently I took part in a mini-residency through the Academy of Implant Dentistry where I learned the surgical and restorative aspects of implant dentistry.

In the coming years, I will continue to expand my knowledge so I can offer you the most up-to-date techniques and practices in the ever changing field of dentistry. When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with friends and family as well as taking advantage of all the outdoor activities that Colorado has to offer. I especially enjoy skiing, running, hiking, and camping.

Luisa Saenz

Luisa was born in Hereford, Texas but moved to Fort Morgan, Colorado when she was 8 years old. Luisa has been working in the dental field for four years with previous work in communications and customer service. She never thought she would get involved in dentistry, but she is grateful for the first dentist she worked with who took a leap of faith with her and gave her the opportunity to learn. Since then she has enjoyed every minute of it. Luisa is our insurance and treatment plan coordinator. She can answer any questions you might have about the financial aspects of your dental care.

When Luisa is not working she loves watching baseball. Her team is of course the Colorado Rockies! She also enjoys spending time volunteering at an assisted living facility where she visits with residents and lends a listening ear to let them tell their stories. She loves the outdoors: hiking, camping, riding bikes etc. This year she checked two things off her bucket list: running a marathon and skydiving! She plans on doing both once again in 2018.

Natalie Garcia

Natalie has lived in Denver her whole life and has been working in dentistry for 15 years. Natalie is an Extended Duty Dental Assistant, which means she has received extensive training in placing fillings, taking impressions, making dentures, along with many other dental procedures. Natalie’s favorite part about her job is creating relationships with her patients and making them smile.

When Natalie is not working she enjoys cheering on her 3 kids (2 boys and a girl) who are all active in sports and other extracurricular activities. Natalie is the youngest of 6 (4 sisters and 1 brother) and all of her siblings still live in Denver so she is lucky enough to be able to spend almost every Sunday with them.
