Dr. Chris Brady
Dr. Chris Brady is a Colorado native and has lived in Colorado Springs since graduating with his D.D.S degree from Baylor College of Dentistry in 1984. He graduated from Brigham Young University in 1980 with a B.S degree in Zoology and a minor in Spanish. He opened his own practice in 1984 here in Colorado-in Rockrimmon.
At Baylor, Dr. Brady was recognized for his skill and creative approach to improve techniques in the laboratory and in treating patients. The dean of operative dentistry awarded Dr. Chris a 98% for superior completion of a difficult restorative case-the highest grade ever given a student in his 30 years at Baylor.
As a practicing dentist, Dr. Brady has a thirst for knowledge in order to continue refining his diagnostic and treatment skills. He cares deeply for his patients and always includes them in any decision in treating their mouth.
Dr. Brady is a sought after educator and speaker. For the last 20 years, he has taught thousands of dentist in seminars, dental conventions, and also (through the magic of the internet), provides personal coaching to practices as far away as South Africa.
He is a published author–he’s written articles for national and international dental magazines such as Dental Economics. He was invited to co author the recently published book, “Dare To Be A Difference Maker“. He recently completed directing, editing, writing, organizing and publishing a second book-“Expert Advice From Dentists Who Genuinely Care About You and Your Health”. This book is a collaboration of information about leading dental technology, materials, and procedures written by 10 of the top dentist in the U.S. Because of the explosion of food and material allergies and sensitivities, his chapter addresses the ever increasing need for and emergence of alternative/biological holistic dental care in America and how it can be integrated in modern dentistry.
Dr. Brady and his wife of 35 years, Charlotte, have 8 children-4 boys and 4 girls-and are the lucky grandparents of 10 and counting!
When Dr. Brady isn’t in the office or teaching he enjoys singing, leading groups of singers, being with his family RV-ing and four-wheeling. When his wife lets him in the kitchen, he makes the best homemade chocolate sauce drizzled over homemade ice cream and loves cooking caliente Mexican food!
Dr. Gary Hochstetler
Then, of course, there is Dr. Hochstetler. He grew up in Horton, Kansas, and graduated from Union College (Lincoln, Nebraska) in 1980 with a double major in Chemistry and Mathematics (all very useful in day to day dental practice -- not!). He then became "doctor" after graduating from Creighton School of Dentistry (Omaha, Nebraska) in 1984.
The first stop after graduation was in Lakewood, Colorado, where he lived and practiced dentistry for four years. There, after roaming the mountains, he met his lovely wife, LeAnna. They decided that Kansas was a better place to raise a family, so they moved back to Horton in 1988, where Dr. started his practice. They have two children who are currently in college.
Dr. Hochstetler is accomplished in virtually all phases of dentistry. He particularly enjoys the holistic or biological aspect since that can be the most challenging in determining how a person's mouth and over all health are related and what can be done to reconcile the problems.
