MEET THE TEAM
Dr. Justin Moses
Dr. Moses is a third generation dentist, originally from Philadelphia, PA . Growing up involved in sports and always having an interest in science, he studied Exercise Physiology at the University of Delaware and tried to break away from the family tradition of dentistry. After looking into options for graduate school, he couldn't deny that dentistry was the perfect fit for him.
He completed dental school at the prestigious University of Pennsylvania and an Advance Training Residency at University of Colorado. There he was trained in IV sedation, wisdom tooth extraction and implant placement, along with other advanced procedures. After his residency, Dr. Moses moved back to work at his father's old practice in the suburbs of Philadelphia, but the outdoors and adventure of Colorado were calling him back.
Making a difficult decision to leave family and friends, Dr. Moses took the plunge and moved to Eagle County. It turns out, that was the best decision he has ever made! It is an honor, a privilege and a dream for him to be treating patients from all over the world in Vail. Dr. Moses really looks forward to helping both patients and our great community in any way possible.
When he isn't reading a journal or a textbook, Dr. Moses and his wife, Maddy, love to bike (both road and mountain), trail run, paddleboard, ski, hike and golf. Feel free to give any recommendations about trails, secret stashes, or any other tips to enjoy the beautiful area that we live in. Be sure to say "Hi" to their dog, Parker, when you come to the office!
Dr. Paul Corcoran needs no introduction. Having been an excellent provider of dental care in Vail for the last 35 years, he and his wife, Jean, are well known throughout the Vail Valley community. We couldn't be more grateful to have their continued presence and expertise in the office!
Dr. Corcoran completed his undergraduate and dental school education at the University of Maryland and is an avid Terrapins fan. Dr. Corcoran is actually a fan of all sports and will shock you with his sports trivia knowledge.

Throughout his career, Dr. Corcoran has always had a high regard for completing the highest level of continuing education courses. Since 2001, he has continually completed courses through UCLA, one of the top continuing education programs in the US, focusing on cosmetic dentistry.
Dr. Corcoran has always had a passion for serving those in need in his community. For the past 8 years, he has provided a Free Day of Dentistry for the community every fall, when locals can take advantage of a much needed cleaning, check up or restoration! Dr. Corcoran has also been a staff member at Vail Valley Medical Center for over 30 years.
Dr. Morgan, a second generation dentist, was born and raised in Dillon, CO and received a finance degree from the University of Colorado. After graduating, his passion for travel and adventure took him on a trip throughout Asia and the Middle East. It was on this trip that he realized his desire to return to school and become a dentist.
Dr. Morgan attended Creighton University’s Dental School and graduated Summa Cum Laude. He was inducted into the prestigious Omicron Kappa Upsilon National Dental Honor Society upon graduation based on his excellent grades and clinical performance in all disciplines of dentistry. This honor is awarded only to the top 10% of a graduating class.

Wanting to further his training, Dr. Morgan completed an Advanced Education in General Dentistry (AEGD) through Idaho State University (ISU) in Boise, Idaho. In this program, he received further training in moderate sedation, implantology, endodontics, and oral surgery.
