Dr. Colleen Schook
Dr. Colleen Schook grew up as what some call a “military brat”, which allowed her to move around and live in several states growing up including New York, Alaska, Oklahoma, and Nevada. She returned to New York to finish her undergraduate degree in Biological Sciences at CUNY Hunter College on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. Once completed, she began working in research, medical, and dental fields. She quickly realized that dentistry had the combination of art, science, and personal relationship skills that she loved which led her to decide to further her education to become a dentist.
Dr. Schook earned her dental degree from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas in 2015. During her formal education she loved being involved in leadership roles among colleagues as well as service programs for the community. It is her belief that these two things help promote focus on communication, integrity, and sense of purpose that makes dentistry a joy to be involved in. These traits have been a foundation for career and driving force to provide exceptional patient care. She maintains active membership in the American Dental Association, Colorado Dental Association, Boulder Broomfield County Dental Society, and the Academy of General Dentistry. She has spent time presenting to schools and Girl Scout Troops about oral hygiene, science behind dentistry, and what it means to be a dentist. She has also provided donated dental services to communities in Las Vegas, Longmont, and Fort Collins.
When she is not doing dentistry, Dr. Schook loves spending time with her family and friends. Her favorite activities include traveling, camping, playing trivia, and going to the movies. She also enjoys working in her garden and creating projects using newer technologies like 3D printers and electroluminescent wires.
