Dr. Collette's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Collette "I enjoy the daily interaction with my patients, which often involves a magic trick or two! My focus is on prevention and education, and I feel it is important to be involved with the community in promoting good oral health. Education and continuing education I completed my undergraduate education at Brigham Young University, earning a Bachelor of Science in neuroscience. I then graduated with a Doctorate of Dental Surgery summa cum laude from Creighton University School of Dentistry. Following dental school, I completed my training in the specialty of pediatric dentistry at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital in Ohio. As a part of my continuing education, I am an active member of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry and the American Dental Association. Family life My wife and I live in the Tri-City area, and are grateful to raise our five children here. In my spare time, I enjoy doing various outdoor activities, including skiing and hiking. I also enjoy watching and playing team sports. My all-time favorite pastime, though, is going on vacation with my wonderful family!"
