Dr. Baer was born and raised in Littleton, CO where he enjoyed all of the beauties of our mountains with his parents and 5 siblings. He went on to pursue his bachelors of science in Neurophysiology at BYU. After his four years there he returned home to Colorado to attend Dental School at CU. While in Dental school he pursued additional research centered on surgery and dental implants. He published multiple articles in the Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and a book on sinus bone grafting. After dental school he went on as a teaching fellow in the department of oral and maxillofacial surgery in Ohio.
He was thrilled to come back to Colorado to practice dental surgery, and also enjoy the mountains. Out-side his practice, his time is largely spent with his wife, two daughters and son. He doesn't get to spend that much time in the mountains but is happy to trade all of that for every minute of quality time with his family.
Dr. Jason Jamison
Dr. Jason Jamison grew up in Ohio. He graduated from Brigham Young University in 2006, and went to University of Nevada, Las Vegas to pursue his passion of becoming a dentist, graduating in 2011. After graduating, Dr. Jamison was able to spend two years in Chile and this helped him become fluent in Spanish. Dr. Jamison loves kiddos and he and his wife have five of their own: two boys and three girls ranging from three to twelve years old.

You can find him all around the state boating, hiking, and camping with his family!
Dr. Blake Chandler
Dr. Blake Chandler grew up in Preston, Idaho. As a child he loved exploring the outdoors and learned to fend for himself as the second youngest of seven boys and two girls. You could often find him selling golf balls he found at the local golf course.
After completing his undergraduate studies at Brigham Young University, he completed dental school at the University of Louisville. He moved to the “very hot” Phoenix, Arizona where he spent his first ten years as a general dentist exclusively working with children. This inspired him to complete a 2-year residency in pediatric dentistry at Miami Children’s Hospital. While there, he met his wife who was doing an externship as a pediatric dentist from Brazil. They moved to Colorado so that she could attend dental school and become licensed in the USA. He became board certified with the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry in 2016.
Dr. Chandler learned to speak fluent Spanish during a two year mission to Argentina with his church. He has a recently-graduated 18-year-old daughter. In his free time he plays piano, enjoys all kinds of sports, does his best to grow a vegetable garden, and enjoys traveling and visiting all of the family, from his in-laws in Brazil to his 8 siblings and their families—almost a full-time job in itself. He is glad to have moved back to the west from Florida so that they can be closer to family and enjoy the beauty that is Colorado.
