JT grew up in Colorado Springs and loved everything the Rocky Mountains had to offer. JT met his wife, Alicia, while living in Denver. Alicia grew up in Helena, and JT fell in love with the town after he fell in love with her.
JT traveled to the east coast to attend Colgate University, graduating summa cum laude with high honors in Molecular Biology. During college, he shadowed an incredible general dentist, who inspired him to pursue dentistry. JT then attended the University of Colorado School of Dental Medicine, finishing 2nd in his class. He was also elected class president and student body president.
JT completed an extra year of training at the Advanced Education in General Dentistry Residency at the Audie L. Murphy VA hospital in San Antonio where he had the privilege and honor to help many of our nation’s veterans. During this intense and comprehensive program, JT learned how to deliver the highest quality care in dental implants, gum surgeries, sedation, esthetic dentistry, Invisalign, root canals, and other complex cases. This diverse experience allows him to approach cases with a multi-disciplinary perspective, delivering patients the best, longest-lasting results possible.
In his free time, JT enjoys backpacking, skiing, hiking Mount Helena, eating chocolate from the Parrot Confectionery.
