Following in his father’s and uncles’ footsteps, who were all dentists, Dr. Richard Ito’s inclination for science led him to become a dentist as well.
He received his Bachelor of Arts in math, chemistry, and physics from the University of Colorado, his Master of Science in organic chemistry from Colorado State University, and his Doctor of Dental Surgery from the University of Colorado.
Over his more than four decades of practice experience, he has also completed numerous continuing education courses. This continuing education, as well as investing in state-of-the-art equipment, has allowed him to keep up with modern dental techniques. Dr. Ito is a member of the Gordon Christensen International Study Club, the ADA, and the CDA.
Dr. Ito’s patients appreciate that he tries to keep them as comfortable as possible. For him, the joy in his work comes from seeing the positive results he gets for his patients. He also likes meeting new people.
In his spare time, Dr. Ito enjoys playing golf.
