BSEEd – Director of Dental
Belinda Kraemer brings over 30 years’ experience in teaching and dental assisting. Belinda began her dental assisting career in 1978. She quickly developed a passion for helping patients accomplish their “smile dreams” and learning firsthand the importance of dental health. After assisting in the dental office for several years, Belinda returned to the classroom to pursue a lifelong dream of becoming a teacher. Upon completing her Bachelor of Science degree from Oklahoma State University in elementary education in 1983, Belinda began her first teaching position in 4th grade at Andover Elementary School in Andover, Kansas. Belinda loves everything about teaching and thoroughly enjoys watching young minds grow and learn.
In 2009, Belinda pursued a new career by combining both her passions and began teaching dental assisting. She quickly accepted a leadership role and continued as the Program Chair of Dental Assisting. Belinda has a strong commitment to her student’s dental education and their academic successes. Belinda loves sharing her passion of dentistry in the classroom & being involved in each student’s career pathways.
Belinda’s most treasured pastime is playing with her three grandsons and spending time with her three adult children and husband of 35 years, Scott. Belinda enjoys spending time in the great outdoors. She enjoys all types of gardening; flower, vegetable, and water gardening. She loves camping and boating with her family in the summer. The mountains of Colorado is her favorite place to enjoy snow skiing & snow shoeing in the wintertime. Belinda is also an avid reader and always looks forward to her next book club with her favorite girlfriends.
