Julie M. Gillis, DDS PC
Dr. Julie Gillis has been practicing cosmetic and restorative dentistry in Grand Junction since 1989. After working as an associate in an established practice for two years, Dr. Gillis opened her own practice with three staff members in 1991. Their mutual goal was to provide the highest quality dental care in a clean, caring, and comfortable environment.
In 1997, Dr. Gillis became the first dentist in Colorado to be awarded Accredited Member status by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD). Established in 1984, the AACD is the largest international dental organization specifically dedicated to the art and science of cosmetic dentistry. Accreditation is earned by the demonstration of exceptional skill and judgment in advanced restorative and cosmetic dentistry before an international panel of accredited dentists.
In response to her stunning artistic results and obvious attention to detail, Dr. Gillis was asked to join the Accreditation Review Board as an Examiner in 1998. Currently, Dr. Gillis serves as an Examiner as well as a member of the Accreditation Written Test Committee.
Over the years, Dr. Gillis’ practice has continued to grow around the philosophy of providing excellent, aesthetic, restorative dental care. In 2003, Dr. Gillis and her six wonderful staff members moved into a new, high-tech, four treatment room office. Dr. Gillis and her design team created a visually stimulating yet relaxing environment for her patients and staff.
The field of cosmetic dentistry has come a long way over the last 20 years. There are a number of new techniques and materials from bleaching and porcelain veneers to “invisible” fillings, bonding, and dental implants. Dr. Gillis uses these techniques along with her artistry to create beautiful and healthy smiles for her patients.
