He then attended the former Mesa State College, now Colorado Mesa University, in Grand Junction, CO. He graduated with a Pre-Medical Biology degree and minor in chemistry with honors. Bob and his wife love everything that the Western Slope has to offer and both knew that this beautiful area of Colorado would always be considered home.

He received awards and recognition for his outstanding achievement in the field of dental implantology. Specifically, he was awarded the Dental Implant Student of the Year from the American Academy of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons as well as Outstanding Student in Implant Dentistry from the Academy of Osseointegration.
After dental school graduation, he applied for and was one of four residents selected to pursue additional training in an advanced one-year residency with the VA Medical Center in Denver, CO. This residency provided invaluable experiences and further education for growth in his role as a newly graduated doctor. He earned training in sedation dentistry, advanced endodontics, wisdom tooth extraction, dental implant placement, and gum surgery. He has a strong commitment to continuing education and knows that lifelong learning leads to a more cutting-edge dentist who is able to provide the best outcomes for patients. He is an active member of the American Dental Association, Colorado Dental Association, Metro Denver Dental Society, Academy of General Dentistry, Academy of Osseointegration and is a Spear education participant.
