Chris W. Barrett, DDS

dr-barrett-headshotDr. Barrett grew up in Davenport, Iowa along with his two sisters and brother, all of whom currently reside in Colorado. Dr. Barrett’s grandfather, a prominent dentist in Davenport and former President of The Pierre Fauchard Academy, had a major impact in his decision to attend dental school and pursue a career in dentistry. He graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Biology from Augustana College in Rock Island, Illinois and received his Doctorate of Dental Surgery from the University of Iowa College of Dentistry in 2011.

5280 Top DentistDr. Barrett gained post-graduate experience through the General Practice Residency Program at University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics and the Iowa City VA Hospital, where he was able to expand on his advanced clinical and educational training in preventative dentistry, restorative dentistry, periodontics, endodontics and oral surgery. Upon completion of his General Practice Residency he transitioned into private practice in Iowa and Colorado, before joining Dr. Rossow and the team at Aspen Dental.

In order to stay informed and exposed to the most cutting-edge dental technologies and techniques, Dr. Barrett has attended over 500 hours of continuing education courses. Such courses, including the Dr. Frank Spear Study Club, range in scope and include topics such as complex treatment planning, dental implant restoration, therapeutic TMJ treatment, and cosmetic design.

Dr. Barrett values the relationships he builds with his patients and tries to base treatment decisions as if they were his own family. His goal is to make sure that every patient fully understands their recommended treatment and is able to leave the office feeling more educated and comfortable.

When Dr. Barrett is out of the office, he enjoys maintaining an active outdoor lifestyle – hiking, backpacking, skiing, and biking – and giving back to his community. He currently volunteers at the Denver Rescue Mission and has worked with the Boys and Girls Club in the past. He loves reading, catching up on history, red wine, Iowa Hawkeye football, wrestling, running (he completed the 2010 and 2011 Chicago Marathon!) and spending time with his 2 children; 5-year old daughter, Lily and 2-year old son, Henrik.
