Building long-term patient relationships with humor and thoughtfulness is Diane’s specialty. As an experienced hygienist for 28 years, and a resident of the Roaring Fork Valley for 17 years – raising a family, biking, hiking, camping, and spending time with good friends -- she is convinced that Carbondale is the town for people who want to live and work together in a beautiful place, and her partnership with Dr. Doherty in and out of the office makes that all possible.



My name is Yudi and I have worked with Dr. Dohery for 9 years and counting. Dental assisting has been my passion and I love helping make a difference in patient’s lives. Dentistry is always changing and it keeps it fun and interesting especially when your doctor wants to keep up with the latest and greatest technology.

Other than dentistry, I am a mom to a handsome, active 2-year-old toddler. I have lived in this valley my whole life and I enjoy working in the cute town of Carbondale. Paddleboarding, hiking and traveling are my other hobbies.



As a certified dental assistant with over 25 years of experience, she loves to see a great smile, and the confidence it brings to the patients. When providing caring and professional appointments she is focusing on the best way to maintain and create your smile.

As a Roaring Fork Valley native, she enjoys spending time with her family and friends, and being involved with horse showing and 4-H. She also loves all the beautiful views and things to do in our great valley.



A native of Colorado, Jashine grew up in the Roaring Fork Valley with the mountains as her playground. She has been changing bodies for well over a decade and specializes in the energies of the mouth. Jashine found her niche as a dental hygienist, and has always been a seeker of new possibilities in dentistry and life. She chooses a totally different way of being and living beyond limitation.

Jashine's techniques are straight forward, easy to use, fun and offer lasting change. She has been changing points of views about dentistry and beyond and isn't stopping anytime soon.
