Meet Dr. Bloss & Staff

Christine Bloss, D.D.S.

Dr. Christine Bloss

Dr. Christine Bloss received her Bachelor’s of Arts in Biology from the University of Illinois.  She then earned a Master’s in Education, and finally received her Doctor of Dental Surgery (D.D.S.) degree in 1991 from the University of Nebraska, and continued her education with a General Practice Residency at the Veteran’s Affairs Medical Center in Lincoln, Nebraska.

Since that time, Dr. Bloss has done hundreds of hours of Continuing Education, following the latest advances in dentistry and oral health, as well as learning about traditional and natural therapies that can promote our good health in the least invasive or toxic manner.  Dr. Bloss is a perpetual student, continually educating herself and her staff to provide the best and most effective dental care to her patients.

Dr. Bloss is a proud member of the following:

Her practice is also pleased to be a Center for Dental Medicine, one of 90+ dental offices in the US, offering the finest, most research-based, and most comprehensive periodontal care available.

As a Holistic dentist, Dr. Bloss believes that there is a strong connection between dental health and physical health. First, she believes there are some serious toxicity issues in dentistry, particularly with mercury and fluoride, and has committed to practicing dentistry in every way possible to reduce patients’ exposure. Next, she chooses carefully the dental materials used in her office, with consideration to the most biocompatible materials, and offers the Clifford test for specific, personal biocompatibility information for those with chemical sensitivity issues.

Growing up, Dr. Bloss and her family moved many times, and she learned to be friendly, adaptable, and to find the good wherever she went. She is now delighted to call Western Colorado her home. She is married to Tom and together they have three grown sons. In her spare time, Dr. Bloss loves to sing and play musical instruments such as the piano, guitar, and harmonica. Gardening is another passion of hers, and she makes it a family affair- she plants the flowers and Tom plants the vegetables! She hikes, bikes, exercises and works out, and walks her dog, Zeke. She works hard to eat as healthy as possible, and enjoys cooking healthy food and trying out new recipes
