Kids Dentist – Dr. Patterson DDS
Doctor Christopher Patterson is a Colorado native that grew up in a small town near Boulder, Colorado. His lovely wife Tara is also a Colorado native and grew up in Littleton. Together they have three beautiful and rowdy sons. As a family they love to travel, ski, and enjoy the Colorado outdoors.
After receiving a Bachelor in Medical Science from the University of Colorado Denver Health Sciences, Doctor Patterson attended the University of Colorado School of Dental Medicine. During his dental education he completed multiple externships in general practice residency and advanced education in general dentistry programs. He also enjoyed traveling to rural areas with the children’s mobile dental clinic to help the underserved children of Colorado.
The best kids dentist EVER! No drugs were needed to fill my daughters two cavities, not even a numbing needle because he uses child drills and filling when possible. Filling her two cavities only took ten minutes, and she was in zero pain or discomfort. She even laid in my lap while he did it, making sure to play games with her often.

Compassionate, professional. I have a little boy with ADHD, it has been very difficult trying to get him to sit in the chair at the pediatric dentist. The hygienist was understanding and very easy to work with. We had to have some dental work done, and my son was given anesthesia. The team was compassionate and we were well taken care of.

Great staff, great kids dentist, couldn’t ask for anything more! We went to three dentist offices prior to coming here. My son loves everyone in the office. They are very welcoming, thorough, and go out of the way to ensure the kids have a great experience.
