Meet The Doctors
C. Bruce Hasenauer, DDS
In 1998 Dr. Bruce Hasenauer received a phone call from a retirement community–would he provide on-site dental services? His love of people moved him and the challenge of it all motivated him. Soon Dr. Bruce and his son, Dr. Corey, were serving several communities in the evenings and on weekends. Dr. Bruce took an appointment to teach at Loma Linda University, while Dr. Corey continued to grow their dream of serving seniors.
The journey began with equipment that could fit in the car. As the needs grew, so did the breadth of services and the vehicle! Soon the equipment was housed in a van and then a trailer and finally a delivery truck. Dr. Bruce was called out of his teaching career and back to Denver.
His return sparked the vision for a self-contained clinic on wheels. A Los Angeles transit bus was purchased and converted to a full-service, state-of-the-art dental clinic. At the beginning of 2008 a second clinic was revealed and plans for the third were in motion not long after. Dr. Corey and his wife have since moved back east to be close to her family.
Bruce Hasenauer, D.D.S. is a graduate of Loma Linda University. He practiced in Denver for almost 25 years before moving back to Loma Linda–this time as a professor. While in private practice, Dr. Bruce co-founded Hampden Dental College, a training program for dental assistants. Presently, he provides on-going oral health training for the Alzheimer’s Association. He also serves as the Board Chairman of The Healing Place, a downtown program designed to bring healing to the homeless. Dr. Bruce and his wife, Sheryl, also have two grown daughters, two handsome sons-in-law and a trio of delightful grandchildren. Dr. Bruce enjoys the Beatles, movies and sculpting.
Marissa Holloway, DMD
Dr. Holloway believes in providing optimal comprehensive care that is tailored to the lives and budgets of the senior community. Committed to providing the best care possible, she has attended the Western Regional Dental Conference since 2014 and has presented dental research at the conference. Dr. Holloway joined the Access Mobile Dental team in August of 2018.
When Dr. Holloway is not working she spends her time traveling. She wants to eventually visit all 50 states and see as many countries/cultures she can. One of her favorite trips was to Tonga where she provided dental care to the underserved population while also immersing herself in the culture. Since moving to Denver, she has continued to develop her outdoor passions, including hiking, and is committed to learning how to ski. She recently began watercoloring and is discovering a new fun and creative side.
What attracted you to working with seniors?
“My grandmother lived in a care home and it was hard for my mom to set up appointments from her. She was working a full time job and was a single mother. I think it is great that we come to the patient to make it easier for them and their families. I love being able to help the patients and families, and feel it is even more rewarding than a normal office setting. I love connecting with patients and hearing about their lives.
Working for a mobile practice gives me a different experience day to day. We go to multiple cities and communities which allows for a different adventure every day.”
Richard Worley, DDS
Dr. Worley joined the Access Mobile Dental team in June of 2014, soon after selling his Denver private practice. The mission statement of his private practice was, “We are a traditional dental practice dedicated to excellence and exceptional care,” and that statement continues to define his practice in semi-retirement. With 50 years of experience in dentistry, he is confident and competent in care, and has an abundance of continuing education in geriatric care. In his free time, he enjoys traveling with his wife Sharon, a retired French teacher with a Master’s from Middlebury who lived in France on a Fullbright Exchange. They enjoy time in France, as well as time on their boat in Florida. They enjoy taking Chase, their Collie, for walks and spending time with friends and family.
What is it about Access Mobile Dental that brings you professional joy?
“Access Mobile Dental is a unique mobile practice, well managed, and if my view the most efficient and practical. Once in the mobile, it is the familiar dental environment, we simply come to you and can provide a level of comprehensive and comfortable care that can be difficult with other mobile care models. Patients are highly appreciative, as are families. Disruption related to transportation for dental care is one of the leading factors preventing seniors from maintaining dental health. Helping seniors remain dentally healthy as they can be or will accept is always rewarding. And, they have great stories!”
