Dr. Gillis' bio

This content was provided by Dr. Gillis "Dr Gillis practices general, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry in Grand Junction, Colorado. Her practice philosophy is to provide the highest quality dental care in a clean, caring and comfortable environment. Dr. Gillis and her talented team are dedicated to working hard to deliver consistently excellent dental care and customer service. Dr. Gillis was the first dentist in Colorado to become an Accredited Member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD), the world's largest association for cosmetic dentists. This is an honor achieved by less than 300 dentists worldwide. There are only three other dentists in Colorado to have achieved this honor. Accreditation is earned by the demonstration of excellent skills in advanced restorative and cosmetic dentistry before an international panel of accredited dentists. In response to her stunning artistic results and obvious attention to detail during her own accreditation in 1996, Dr. Gillis was asked by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry to join the Accreditation Review Board as an Examiner. Dr. Gillis is currently the Chair of The Written Examination Committee for the AACD. Dr. Gillis is also a mentor for other dentists undergoing accreditation. To maintain the highest quality of patient care, Dr. Gillis attends over 100 hours of continuing education each year. This enables her practice to grow with evolving dental techniques and products. Her extensive training and experience in the expanding field of cosmetic dentistry allows her to use both science and artistry to create beautiful smiles for each patient. Dr Gillis has achieved the following awards: Outstanding Achievement in Operative Dentistry from the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center Outstanding Achievement in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery from the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons. Excellent awards for Cosmetic clinical cases presented to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD) Accredited member of the AACD Clinical Examiner for the AACD for other dentists internationally who are trying to achieve accreditation Contributing Editor for the Journal of Cosmetic Dentistry Chair of the Written Examination Committee for the AACD Dr Gillis feels it is an honor to practice dentistry. She has been a member of Donated Dental Services since she started practicing dentistry in 1989, but she wanted to do more! For this reason she decided to give back to her community by having a "Free Dental Day." Dr. Gillis thought of the idea for a Free Dental Day a few years ago. "I wanted a way to give back to this community which has given me so much. To offer even more services to more people, I enlisted the help of an oral surgeon, and a periodontist for our first Free Dental Day held September 2010. The decision was unanimous that we should repeat this service annually." Her hobbies include exercise, gardening, painting, cooking, and reading. Dr. Gillis enjoys spending free time with her husband, Russ, their two wonderful children, Jessica and Lewis, and her dog, Bosco."
