CU Dental faculty make 5280's Top Dentists 2014

Annual guide recognizes top dental providers in the state

University of Colorado School of Dental Medicine faculty landed more than 30 general and specialty spots on 5280’s 2014 Top Dentists list. The annual list is an excerpt from the national topDentists database and was published in the June 2014 issue of 5280.

The University of Colorado School of Dental Medicine’s primary clinics are housed on the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus in Aurora, CO. Providing nearly 100,000 annual patient visits on campus and throughout the community, the school’s commitment to quality dental care is felt statewide.

Dental faculty share a background in caring for patients and training future dentists. Faculty are commonly graduates of one of nine specialties recognized by the American Dental Association and many are board certified in their fields. Along with their clinical teaching responsibility, several of CU’s dental faculty maintain an active dental practice either in the school’s faculty practice or a private, non-university practice.

Congratulations to members of this year’s list and thank you for serving as exemplary members of Colorado’s dental profession. To search the full list of Top Dentists, visit
