Chelsie Gritzmacher, DMD

The most warm-hearted and compassionate United States Air Force Major that you will ever meet, Dr. Chelsie Gritzmacher served in the 9th Aerospace Medical Squadron and the 60th Dental Squadron. 

This story of greatness began with a girl who grew up on grunge bands in Washington state then set out on fire to explore the world.  Dr. Chelsie earned a degree in education while competing with the varsity volleyball team at Huron University.  Then, she dabbled in quite a few “odd” jobs…at Blockbuster Video (back when people rented VCR tapes), in an Alaskan fish canary, at a Jansport backpack warehouse, in a prosthetic eye lab, and as a high school science teacher.  

Upon discovering her passion for pediatric dentistry, Dr. Chelsie obtained a Doctor of Dental Medicine degree from Case Western Reserve University followed by a Pediatric Dental Specialty degree at Children’s Hospital Colorado. Additionally, she has completed the demanding board certification process with the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry. As a diplomate of the ABPD, Dr. Chelsie has earned the highest achievable certification in the specialty of pediatric dentistry.

After having practiced dentistry in California and Germany, Dr. Chelsie and her family enthusiastically chose Colorado as the place where roots would be planted, ski slopes will be conquered, camping will occur, soccer will be played, and a lucky collection of kids and families will receive abundantly kind pediatric dental care from Major Chelsie.

 

Rebecca Fountain, DDS

Raised in southern California by special education teachers, Dr. Rebecca Fountain always knew that she would spend her life helping kids.  Finding her way into pediatric dentistry has matched her compassion, artistry, and highly scientific mind with the ultimate career in health and advocacy for children.

Dr. Rebecca is a top level “brainiac”, having earned a degree in Public Health from the University of California, Berkeley as well as graduating Cum Laude from UCLA School of Dentistry.  Additionally, Dr. Rebecca completed the rigorous, hospital based Pediatric Dentistry Specialty Program at Children’s Hospital Colorado, one of the top Children’s Hospitals in the nation. In her continued commitment to excellence, Dr. Rebecca has accomplished board certification, earning diplomate status with the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry.

Our world is definitely a better place because of Dr. Rebecca Fountain, with contributions to organizations such as Miles of Smiles, MEND (Meet Each Need with Dignity), Homeless not Toothless, Project Homeless Connect, The Boys and Girls Club, and Give Kids a Smile, just to name a few.  Wonderfully, the spirit behind this level of community engagement carries strongly into her thoughtful, generous approach to pediatric dentistry.

Her goodness is also currently being infused into the next generation of Fountains. Together with her husband, a charming Englishman, she recently welcomed a new baby girl.  Her family has settled down in a cozy Colorado bungalow with plans to foster a beautiful life full of community stewardship and Colorado adventures.
