Christiansen Dental started as a dream many years ago as I, Dr. Bart, was growing up in northern Wyoming.
I had two Uncles in the dental field, one was an orthodontist in Ogden, UT and the other a general dentist in Fort Collins, CO. They were lots of fun and enjoyed their profession. After I had a front tooth knocked out in 5th grade, I was so impressed and grateful that my Uncle could fix my tooth and return my smile, it occurred to me that being a dentist might be something I wanted to be myself.
My uncles gave me lots of encouragement and I pursued my goal and after much work, I graduated from Creighton University School of Dentistry in 1988. That fall my wife and I and our oldest son moved to Highlands Ranch and in the spring of 1990 we opened our own practice in the building where we are to this day.
My brother James grew up (he really is my brother, 21 years and 1 week younger) watching his really cool big brother and decided he would be a dentist also. James graduated from the University of Colorado School of Dentistry in the spring of 2009 and after 4 years practicing in Wyoming joined us here in Colorado.
Terri has been our office manager for 27 of the 28 years I have been in practice (we get along). George(ette) has been my assistant for an even 20 years (we get along most of the time) and Karen has been cleaning teeth with us for an even 18 (she still laughs at my jokes! (Because they are still very funny)).
We really like the rest of our staff too and hire only really nice people. We have found if you are nice to them they will be nice to you!
We invite you in to a friendly, fun (for a dental office) environment and would appreciate the opportunity to be your family’s dental provider.
