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. There, he subsequently completed a one-year residency in Advanced Education in General Dentistry (AEGD). Following graduation, Dr. Morris 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. The United States Army provided Dr. Morris additional specialist-level training, including dental implants, wisdom tooth extraction, and more, so that during his deployment to Iraq, he could provide as much treatment to personnel without relying on referrals to specialists. At his Army base in Iraq, he was the only dentist for 10,000 service members and personnel with no specialists in sight.
Now in beautiful Littleton, Colorado, Dr. Morris’ patients benefit from his specialist-level training and enjoy the convenience of comprehensive dentistry at one dental office. Dr. Morris also completed additional education in advanced training in dental implants and IV sedation. 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’ world-class skills, knowledge, and ability make him one of Colorado’s most valuable dentists.
