Dentists

Dr. Justin Moses

DMD

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. 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.

Dr. Michael Morgan

DDS

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. 

 

Dr. Morgan is excited for the opportunity to be a part of the Vail Valley community along with his wife and 2 daughters. Dr. Morgan enjoys ice hockey, snowboarding, skiing, mountain biking, backpacking, and anything that involves the outdoors. Dr. Morgan is here to help serve the Vail Valley as both a dentist and a member of the community.
