The Friendliest Dental Team You’ve Ever Met


Alyssa Audino - Front Office Specialist

In addition to being River’s End Dental’s outstanding first point of contact, Alyssa is currently pursuing a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Colorado Mesa University in Grand Junction, CO. She has also received her Certified Dental Assistant certificate after attending school at IntelliTec College in Grand Junction, CO. When she’s not busy studying and making people smile, she likes to take her German Shepard, Cosmo, to the dog park and on walks around the neighborhood. Alyssa is originally from the Grand Junction area and has many family members and friends she enjoys spending time with, especially during football season! Go Broncos!


Cassandra Hughes-Lead Dental Assistant

Cassandra is a native of Colorado and recently moved to the Western slope in 2016 but has been a dental assistant since 2004 and is passionate about making people comfortable and helping them feel good about themselves. When she is not brightening people’s day at work, she is spending time with her friends and family four wheeling, fishing, and camping anywhere she can go. Cassandra is proud to be a member of the Fruita community and can't wait to make you smile.
