She was honored with the CU Alumni Scholarship and is a proud member of the Phi Beta Kappa Society.

With a strong interest in dentistry, Dr. Young pursued her dental education at the University of Colorado School of Dentistry. She obtained her D.D.S. (Doctor of Dental Surgery) degree in 2005.

When she isn’t caring for her patients or honing her skills, Dr. Young loves taking advantage of Colorado’s great outdoors! An avid camper and hiker, she also relishes the simple things like taking her dog out for nightly walks.

Our Patients Feel Like Family

Rachel shared with us her reluctance to visit. We’re so glad she did! Read more patient testimonials here.

“Before I started seeing Dr. Young, I hated going to the dentist. I mean, I know most people don’t like dental visits, but my sense of dread was keeping me from taking good care of myself. I would put off making appointments or even cancel them at the last minute.

Thank goodness I finally found Dr. Young! She understood where I was coming from and totally put me at ease. She didn’t talk down to me or lecture me about flossing (although she did recommend a better technique).

Unfortunately, I’d put off an appointment for so long that I did need to go back for a couple of fillings. It was the easiest work I’ve ever had done! Dr. Young talked me through the details before we got started. Then I popped on my headphones and was able to distract away my anxiety. She is so skilled and gentle that the shot (the worst part!) barely hurt at all and the whole procedure was over in no time.

Now I bring my whole family to Dr Young’s office. I didn’t want my kids to grow up with the same fears that I did, and now I don’t have to worry about it. They love coming to get their teeth cleaned. And I love that all four of us can get in on the same day. I finally have a dentist we all love. No more cancelled appointments!”
