DR. LAWRENCE MUSANJE
DR. LAWRENCE MUSANJE
Born and raised in Uganda, Dr. Lawrence Musanje is a true man of letters! Those letters include DDS, PHD and DDS again. After his initial education at the Wuhan University in China, where he earned his first Doctor of Dental Surgery degree (DDS), Dr. Musanje continued his education earning a PhD in dental filling materials from the University of Hong Kong. He then went on to do five years of research and teaching as a post-doctoral fellow at Oregon Health and Science University. He then furthered his education at The University of Colorado, School of Dental Medicine where he was awarded another DDS degree. Dr. Lawrence, as he is called by both patients and parents, has been well prepared to care for children here in Colorado. He and his wife, Jennifer, have two children (Angelica, age 13 and Judith, age 15) and as a family they enjoy tennis, jogging, horseback riding and hiking.
Dr. Musanje’s kind, gentle demeanor and years of dental training create a welcoming environment for first time patients and regular visitors here in the office. He knows that each child is a unique and special bright star, and he takes the time to work with them to overcome dental anxiety.

JAMARIAN EVANS DANIELS – OFFICE MANAGER
JAMARIAN EVANS DANIELS
We here at Bright Star Kids Dentistry are so happy to have Jamarian back on our team! Jamarian was our office manager when we opened Shining Stars Kids Dentistry in Lakewood, having come to us with 10+ years of both assisting (RDA and EDDA) and administrative experience. She moved on to advance her dental career, and has now returned to our office family to oversee our new office in Commerce City. She loves spending time with her family, writing and traveling. When she isn’t at work, it’s a good bet she’s supporting her kids in their activities that range from playing the violin, to volleyball, to football. She has worked with all dental specialties but her favorite dental job is working with kids. She loves helping them overcome their dental anxieties and enjoying their dental visits.
AIME DOMINGUEZ – DENTAL ASSISTANT
Aime is a Colorado native and has been certified in dentistry since 2015. She enjoys going on adventures, trying new things, movies, puzzles and coloring. She expects that while she began here in Colorado, she will someday “travel the world!” Aime loves working with children (we can clearly see that every day) and enjoys teaching them good oral habits. She wants to make sure every little patient walks out of our door happy and anxious to return. Her goal is to show children how easy and fun dental visits can be.
JENNIFER LULING – FINANCIAL COORDINATOR
Jennifer has extensive customer service experience from her work as a tax preparer and bank teller and, more recently, from working with us since the opening of Dr. Musanje’s Belmar office. Jennifer loves working at Bright Star Kids Dentistry because the kids remind her of her own childhood experience in China. She was very frightened of the dentist as a child, and thus has a desire to make all children comfortable and relaxed when they come to visit our office. She wants kids to see that going to the dentist can be both good for them and fun! Jennifer has a wonderful husband, two beautiful daughters and a golden retriever named Jonas. In her spare time she enjoys swimming and playing tennis and she is fluent in both Mandarin and Cantonese.
