Meet Dr. Katie Scholand
After completing high school, the mountains drew Dr. Katie Scholand west from her home state of Illinois to Colorado where she took the opportunity to live the mountain lifestyle. Working initially as a ski instructor at Keystone, Dr. Scholand went on to attend school at Adams State University in Alamosa where she earned a Bachelors of the Arts degree. Dr. Scholand continued her studies at the University of Colorado School of Dental Medicine where she graduated with a Doctorate in Dental Sciences in 2009 and moved to the oceanside town of Portland, Maine to put her skills to use. In 2011, heeding the call of the mountains and looking for a greater purpose in her career, Dr. Scholand returned to Colorado where she worked in public health until 2019, providing dentistry to the underserved communities of our state. Dr. Scholand loves taking continuing dental education classes and is dedicated to lifelong learning.
When not making patients smile, Dr. Scholand loves to watch and attend sports, especially the Denver Broncos and the Kansas Jayhawks basketball and, if you are trying to find a new hobby, this is the lady to ask for advice. Soldering, creative arts, camping, gardening, and meditation are just a few of the past times on her list and she often participates in several classes at a time, investigating potential new interests.
Dr. Scholand has found her home at Colorado Family Dentistry where she is able to build lasting relationships with patients in a challenging environment which allows her to fully utilize her skillset and focus on the latest in dental science.
