Meet Our Team

Courtney Graham

Front Office Coordinator

Courtney is a second-generation Nevadan and a graduate of McQueen High School. She is the mother of two young sons. The family adores their two Geckos; Baby Yoda and Zippy enjoy eating crickets and spending time with Courtney and the boys.

Courtney is no stranger to the field of dentistry. She’s been active in the community for 22 years. She has a bachelor’s degree in elementary education but decided a career in dentistry was better suited for her. She wears many hats being an office coordinator at a busy practice. The most favorite aspect of her job is dealing with the patients. She enjoys greeting the patients, troubleshooting, and setting up appointments. And if you are nervous about your procedure, Courtney has a knack for calming you down. She helps to ease your mind about different procedures and any anxieties that come along with them.

She enjoys running, hiking, camping, and yoga. Although she admits that with her busy family life, she doesn’t do any of these often enough. Running is one of her favorite activities. What she loves about running is the peace and solace she receives when she’s on her own time and in her head with nobody else around.

As a new member of Rores Family Dentistry, she is happy to be in a practice that genuinely cares about its patients. Courtney’s warmth, thoughtfulness, thoroughness, and intelligence are a welcome addition to the team.

Jenny Luevano

Dental Assistant

Growing up in Mexico, Jenny’s parents never took Jenny and her siblings to the dentist. In fact, they didn’t go themselves unless there was a problem. It just wasn’t a high priority.

At age 10, the family moved to Reno. For Jenny, it was eye-opening to learn that people regularly went to the dentist and took their kids at a young age. Her first experience with a dentist was when she was bussed from school to a free dental clinic to get some cavities filled. At age 18, she took the initiative to take herself to the dentist. She was enamored with the profession and wanted to be an advocate for preventive dental care. Soon, she realized she was destined to take this career path. Being bilingual was a huge asset too.

She then enrolled and graduated from the dental assisting school at Truckee Meadows Community College. She’s been a dental assistant since 2015. What attracted her to Rores Family Dentistry was the opportunity to work in a boutique-style dental practice where she can get to know her patients, work one-on-one with the same dentist, and take the time necessary for each encounter.

Jenny realizes that most people are anxious about going to the dentist. Her goal is to make you feel comfortable and make the experience the best it can be. When you leave the office, chances are you will say, “This wasn’t as bad as I was thinking!”
When Jenny is not working, she spends her time with her husband and daughter. As a family, they enjoy visiting local parks, dining out, and staying active. Jenny enjoys anything outdoors, but her secret obsession is true-crime mysteries. When you see Jenny, ask her about her latest favorite podcast or series.

Melissa Grant

Dental Hygienist

Melissa was born and raised in Elko, Nevada. After high school, she moved to Reno to attend UNR and then went on a semester abroad in Spain. She then attended dental hygiene school in Las Vegas. In 1998, she started practicing in Reno. She and her husband moved to San Diego seven years later, where she practiced for 12 years. A three-year stint in Texas followed before she returned to Reno.

She loves to travel, cook, and is the ultimate hostess when it comes to entertaining. When she met her husband, it was love at first sight, and a whirlwind romance ensued. They’ve been married 17 years and have a 13-year-old son and an 11-year-old Saint Bernard, Joey. When it comes to dogs, it’s all about go big or go home. They are dog lovers who love finding big dogs through dog rescue organizations. Their last prior to Joey was a Great Dane.

Melissa is an outdoor enthusiast. She enjoys paddle boarding, hiking, taking walks and is a devout Pilates advocate. Many dental hygienists experience lower back and neck problems caused by how they position themselves while treating the patient. Working for eight hours a day in this position can cause problems. Melissa attributes Pilates in keeping her healthy and her back pain-free.

As a dental hygienist, her biggest passion is connecting with patients while educating them about their teeth. She doesn’t just clean your teeth. Her passion for continuing education keeps her energized in her profession. She’s a perpetual learner who has recently learned more about occlusion, bruxism, sleep medications and sleep apnea. Go ahead, as her about tips/tricks for caring for your teeth. She’s more than happy to share what she’s learned throughout the years. She concluded, “Dentistry is not one size fits all; it’s one size fits one”. Melissa is a perfect complement to Rores Family Dentistry.
