Owens Dental Announcement

Wow, it’s still early in 2019 and we already have a big change to announce… we regret that Dr. Corey Cook has been deployed to the East Coast to work on an Air Force Base there and he and his family are moving out of state. We have enjoyed his time here and are so sad to see him go, but we are excited to welcome Dr. Brad Packer to the team! Dr. Packer is originally from Minnesota, but he and his family love living here in Colorado. He brings 4 years of experience as a general dentist to our team and will be seeing patients on Tuesdays and Fridays, with more days to be added in the near future. Dr. Packer started with us last Friday and we have already received compliments from patients about his compassionate nature and gentle care. We are so glad to welcome to him to the Owens Dental Team!
