Greg Evans, DDS
Diplomate, American Board of Pediatric Dentistry
Dr. Greg started his practice in 1998. Following graduation from Loveland High School in 1985, Greg earned his bachelor’s degree from Grinnell College in 1989. After two years as a research assistant in virology and marrying his high school sweetheart, Stacey (Fishell) in 1991, Greg went to dental school at the University of Iowa. He graduated with honors in 1996. Greg then completed a two-year residency program at the Children’s Hospital in Denver for his pediatric specialty training. He is now Fort Collins’s most experienced board-certified pediatric dentist.
Greg’s professional interests include infant dental care and hospital dentistry. He is a Technical Advisor for the Cavity Free at Three state initiatives, focusing on high-risk infants and expectant mothers. He is also a founding member of the PVH Cleft Lip and Palate Team, and he regularly coordinates oral care with area physicians in and out of the hospital. He currently has hospital privileges at Poudre Valley Hospital and Medical Center of the Rockies Surgery Center.
You will find Dr. Greg and his caring staff actively involved in the community. They are regular and ardent supporters of the area elementary schools, both financially and educationally. The team supports the school-based Project Smile charity, as well as the ADA Give Kids A Smile day, Colorado Mission of Mercy, Project Self Sufficiency, The Learning House, Curtis Fund, and other programs aimed to help the area’s children. In both 2004 and 2005, Greg received the Colorado Dental Association Service Award for his work on successfully defending community water fluoridation in Fort Collins.
Greg and Stacey have a daughter, Grace, and son, Lewis. Both Greg and Stacey’s parents live in Fort Collins and share their blessings and child rearing. While Greg is an absolute nut about fly-fishing, the Evans family enjoys time at the grandparents’ cabin, fixing up the house, crafts, and sampling local restaurants. Stacey worked as a professional chef and is ACF certified.
That’s the life of a Fort Collins Pediatric Dentist!
