Christopher R. Morris, DMD, FAGD
Dr. Morris grew up in St. George, Utah, the youngest in a family of seven children. His father is also a dentist who has practiced for more than 45 years. Dr. Morris’s wife Cori is from Mesquite, Nevada. They have two sons (Cooper and Jasper), and twin daughters (Clara and Elise). They love living in Colorado and spending time outdoors skiing, hiking, picnicking, and participating in sports. They have traveled extensively and especially enjoy visiting extended family. Dr. Morris keeps fit by doing CrossFit workouts. He also plays the piano and enjoys home improvement projects.
Dr. Morris completed dental school at the University of Louisville, and then completed a one-year residency in Advanced Education in General Dentistry (AEGD). He served four years of active duty for the U.S. Army as a dentist, including three years stationed in Germany and a deployment to Iraq. The Army trained Dr. Morris to provide specialist-level treatment including dental implants, wisdom tooth extraction and more, so that during his deployment to Iraq he wouldn’t have to rely on referrals to specialists. On the base in Iraq he was the only dentist for 10,000 personnel with no specialists in sight. Now his patients can benefit from the convenience of comprehensive dentistry in one dental office, and not worry about being referred to another office for specialist procedures. After the Army, Dr. Morris continued his education and honors with advanced training in dental implants and IV sedation. He earned a Fellowship in the Academy of General Dentistry (FAGD), an honor only 5% of dentists achieve.
Dr. Morris enjoys being involved in humanitarian work. He lived in Brazil for two years on a mission for his church. He has also been to Honduras to donate dental work to school children.
Dr. Morris is fluent in Portuguese and proficient in Spanish.
