Who is Dr. Julie Gillis in the World of Dentistry?

Thank you to so many for helping me get where I am today!

Who is Dr. Julie Gillis in the world of dentistry?

My team and I are committed to continuing education.  In fact each year, we exceed the requirements for state licensing.  We constantly work to update our skills and implement new technologies to provide you with the highest quality dentistry as efficiently and comfortably as possible.

Again this spring, I will be attending the annual scientific session of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry.  Along with my position as chairman of the Written Exam Committee for Accreditation in the Academy, for the past two years I have also served on the Professional Education Committee and the American Board of Cosmetic Dentistry. 

These positions keep my passion alive for learning all I can about dentistry’s new technologies, materials, and techniques.  Experts from all over the world lecture and provide hands-on courses during this week-long session.

Dr. Gillis followed an unconventional path to dentistry by training and working as an entry-level architect and illustrator for firms in the Denver area.  “Dentistry allowed me to take these hand/eye skills to a new level of ‘micro architecture’ in the field of dentistry.  During my first American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD) meeting in 1995 I met several accredited members and knew that this was important for my career.  In two years I completed the amazing process of accreditation.”  Dr Gillis serves  or has served in the  following leadership positions:

  • Accredited member of the AACD since 1997 – Dr Gillis was the first dentist in Colorado to become accredited and now is one of only three dentists who have achieved this honor.   We hope that more dentists will achieve accredited status for the benefit of their patients and their practices!
  • Accreditation Examiner for the AACD since 1998 helping other dentists to become accredited
  • Chairman of the Written Exam Committee in 2004, 2005, 2006, 2011 – 2018 and as a member on this committee since 2001
  • Contributing editor for the AACD Journal since 2010
  • Several years volunteering within the AACD as a new member mentor, speaker host, meeting help, and assistance with photography seminars.
  • Contributing editor for the AACD Journal since 2010
  • Volunteering history including 25 year volunteer for the Dental Lifeline Network and Colorado Foundation of Dentistry for the Handicapped as well as sponsoring many Free Dental Days in our office for patients who could not otherwise afford dental treatment.
  • Give Back a Smile volunteer to serve victims of domestic abuse

Dr Gillis is an accomplished and energetic dentist with a solid history of achievement in Cosmetic and Restorative dentistry.  She believes in giving back to her local community as well.  She had donated time and services to groups such as Donated Dental Services since she started practicing.  Along with her talented team, she held a Free Dental Day for many years to give dental care to those who could not otherwise afford it.  A motto that Dr. Gillis believes in and lives by is, ‘People are important, Simple is better, and Always strive for Improvement.’

I look forward to providing you with the best dentistry has to offer!

Restoring smiles,  Restoring health
