MEET THE DOCTORS
Dr. Brian grew up in Denver and attended Cherry Creek High School. In his early years, he had a passion for astronomy and flying and actually soloed in a plane on his 16th birthday. After high school, he went on to Colorado College where he was President of the Kappa Sigma Fraternity and captain of the golf team. Having earned a degree in mathematics, he was unsure exactly which career path to take. Discussions with family and friends led to him managing the daily operations of a geriatric non-profit dental clinic and in 1995 he enrolled at the University of Colorado School of Dentistry. In addition to earning his Doctorate in Dental Surgery, he went on to complete a General Practice Residency with a focus on medically compromised patients at University Hospital in Denver. Outside of his dental training, Brian's interest in business led him to pursue his Masters in Business Administration from CU. He is actively involved in the community where he has helped coach his daughter's softball team over the last decade, has sat
on the Board of the Cancer League of Colorado, and is currently working as a management consultant for a dental benefits company in Canada. He enjoys traveling, golfing, business, and continuing his pursuit of knowledge (He's presently earning a law degree from Cornell University). Brian is married with a daughter and two stepkids.
As for practice philosophy, Brian works hard to provide the most compassionate care possible. He routinely works with patients to determine the treatment which best fits their needs. Every patient is different and what may work for one patient, may not be right for another. Conservative treatment has led him to have a strong patient base built exclusively on referrals from existing patients. Brian prides himself in making sure his patients are treated as if they were family.
Dr. Blanchard is a Colorado native and attended Heritage High School where he was a multi-sport athlete and quarterback of the football team. After a brief stint playing in Nevada, his football career landed him at the University of Northern Colorado. Upon earning his bachelor's he enrolled at the University of Colorado School of Dental Medicine.
Dr. Blanchard actively pursues continuing education and is licensed to do Botox and place implants. When not at the office he loves playing golf, fishing, traveling to warm destinations, and spending time outdoors. He is married and has a daughter.
Dr. Ali grew up in Iraq and Egypt until moving to Virginia in 2009 with his family. He
completed his undergraduate studies at Virginia Commonwealth University, with a
bachelor's in Biology. In 2016, he moved to Boston, MA, and earned both a master's degree and a Doctor of Medicine in Dentistry from Boston University School of Dental Medicine. He recently settled in Arvada, Colorado with his fiancé, Dr. Gina Giangreco, who is a general dentist practicing in Denver as well.
When not working on teeth, you'll often find Ali spending time with family and friends either relaxing with an IPA or up in the mountains enjoying the outdoors. He enjoys cooking, soccer, working out, watching Netflix, and going to concerts at Red Rocks as much as possible.
As a dentist, he is passionate about the health and happiness of my patients. It is
important to have a comprehensive approach to dental care, so he is committed to
listening to his patients' concerns and working with them to achieve their optimal smile, while helping improve their overall oral health.

Born and raised in Colorado, Leslie attended Dakota Ridge High School. She went to dental assisting school and started working as an assistant in our office in 2005. After a short run as an assistant, she decided to pursue a career in medicine and went to work for Children's Hospital. When an opportunity presented to return to our office, she came back to work at the front desk in 2018. Leslie enjoys working out and spending time with friends and family.

Erica grew up in Wisconsin and moved to Colorado about twenty years ago. She has been practicing hygiene in our office for almost that long. Her commitment to thoroughly treating each patient has made her a favorite amongst many patients over the years. When not at the office you'll likely find her enjoying a good, or even bad, a glass of wine. She is an avid Cyclebar fanatic and enjoys many of the outdoor activities Colorado has to offer. Erica has a teenage son and loves spending time with him, along with her sister and nieces who live nearby.

Southwestern College in San Diego in 2003 and practiced in southern California before coming to Colorado in 2017.

She has been with our office since 2020. She is the self-proclaimed best hygienist in the office.
Kim has been at the practice longer than Drs. Blanchard and Richardson have owned the business. Her stepdad, Dr. Hindman, was the previous owner of the office and Kim grew up working in a variety of capacities within the business. She has known many of the patients since she was a kid and the relationships she has built with them over the years are very meaningful.
Kim works hard to make certain each patient feels comfortable and is treated in a gentle and caring way. Kim did go back to the east coast for college prior to returning to Colorado for hygiene school.
She grew up as a tennis player but as she's gotten older she leaves the sports to her two kids. During her free time, you'll find Kim in the stands watching her daughter wrestle or doing taekwondo, or cheering on her son who plays competitive hockey.
With over 30 years of dedication to the office, Kim hopes retirement is in her future, and then maybe she'll be able to see her husband!
