Meet the Team
Becky Cotant – Patient Coordinator / Office Administrator
I feel blessed to be working with my best friend, my husband, Dr. Cotant. My appreciation for what he does continues to grow each day. He carries all the great qualities that make him a wonderful father and husband into the dental office. His passion for his profession, desire to continue to learn, dedication to his patients, and his pursuance for excellence in everything he does, makes me proud to be his wife. As a couple, we pray that everyone we encounter can see Christ’s love in and through us.
I was born and raised on a farm north of Norfolk, Nebraska. I learned many qualities from being raised on the farm- my desire to serve God, work ethic, value of relationships and ability to multi-task I owe to the experience I gained on the farm and the values instilled in me from my parents.
I am blessed to be able to continue my career in occupational therapy, while also utilizing my healthcare administration degree to perform administrative and operating duties for Cotant Family Dentistry. I enjoy building relationships with patients, building rapport with staff and being able to take on the business aspect of the practice for Dr. Cotant.

Joyce Brown-Benedickt – Hygienist
I am enjoying dental hygiene as a second career. I was employed by the University of Wyoming Bookstore in retail management prior to returning to school for a degree in dental hygiene. I had been a dental assistant in the late 70’s and became interested in oral health care. When the opportunity was presented, I returned to school.
I worked for Dr. Cotant as a temporary dental assistant in 2006-2007, while attending hygiene school. I graduated from Sheridan College in 2007 and started my career as a dental hygienist.
I have 3 married daughters and I have 6 grandchildren who I do not get to see often enough, but when I retire they will be my main focus. I enjoy a western lifestyle, with riding horses and many closely related outdoor activities. I also enjoy woodworking and leather creations when the Wyoming weather keeps me inside.
Each day is a new learning experience and my skills continue to advance. I am fortunate to be able to see patients from 1 year of age and beyond, giving me the opportunity to become a more knowledgeable health care provider.
Kaylee Reimler – Dental Hygienist
I was born in Gillette Wyoming, but grew up in Buffalo on our family ranch 15 miles south of town. I attended Casper College on a rodeo scholarship while studying health science. I was then accepted into Sheridan College’s Dental Hygiene program where I spent the next two years living and continued to rodeo for Sheridan College.
I am a country girl and always will be at heart. I enjoy helping with livestock on the ranch, spending time in the Big Horns, camping, hiking, hitting rodeos when I can, and of course spending time with my family.
Being able to promote dental and overall health to each individual through quality dental care is a passion of mine. I enjoy forming new relationships with my patients each day as well. I truly enjoy being a hygienist; it is such a rewarding job. Working at Cotant Family Dentistry is a true blessing. I work among a team who all strive for quality patient’s care every day. Our office is very welcoming and I have always believed if you love your job you will never have to work a day in your life.
