Christopher R. Morris, DMD, FAGD
Dr. Morris completed his undergraduate degree from Dixie College in Utah and earned a Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) degree from the University of Louisville School of Dentistry. Following graduation, Dr. Morris completed a one-year residency in Advanced Education in General Dentistry (AEGD) and served four years of active duty in the U.S. Army as a dentist, including three years stationed in Germany and a deployment to Iraq.

Dr. Morris especially enjoys providing dental surgery like wisdom teeth removal to his patients at a cost savings. He is a general dentist with more than 15 years of surgery experience. He earned a Fellowship Award from the Academy of General Dentistry (FAGD), an honor only five percent of dentists achieve. Dr. Morris’s world-class skills, knowledge, and ability make him one of Colorado’s most valuable dentists.
