Chase Edwards, DDS
Dr. Edwards grew up in the small town of Ogallala, NE. Him and his wife, Abby, have always dreamed of making their way to Colorado and jumped at the opportunity to move here when Dr. Edwards was presented the opportunity to work as an associate general dentist right out of dental school. Now, together with their two daughters, they call it home. In their free time, you will find them hitting the slopes or waking in the crazy early morning hours to begin a long hike.
Dr. Edwards received his Bachelors of Science degree at the University of Nebraska Wesleyan in 2010 and completed his Doctorate at Creighton University School of Dentistry in 2015. He had come to love the intricate diversity that dentistry offered, while alleviating the issue and achieving optimum satisfaction, all while providing quality care to the patient.
Over the last 4 years, Dr. Edwards shifted his focus to TMJ and Sleep Breathing Disorders. After continuing his education and honing his expertise, Dr. Edwards has left general dentistry completely to join Dr. Barnes as a specialist at TMJ & Sleep Solutions.
