About Dr. Blake Brown

Dr. Brown grew up in Orange Park, Florida, and attended Harvard College for his undergraduate degree.  He later obtained his dental degree from the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill School of Dentistry. His general practice residency was completed at the Queen’s Medical Center in Honolulu, Hawaii.

Dr. Brown has six years’ experience in the field of general dentistry, two of which were spent working for the Indian Health Service in Alaska, and two others spent working in private practice in Wanaka on New Zealand’s South Island.  He is a past member of the American Student Dental Association and the New Zealand Dental Association and will soon affiliate with the American Dental Association.  He has been a volunteer dentist for Mission of Mercy clinics in both North Carolina and Florida.  He also traveled to Nepal for five weeks during dental school to provide care to the greatly underserved populations in the Khumbu mountain region along the route to Mt. Everest. 

Dr. Brown resides in Durango, Colorado, with his wife Allison, his son Llewyn and their two dogs.  He and his family enjoy hiking, skiing, hunting, fishing and any other excuse to spend time outdoors.  When not outdoors, they enjoy cooking together and listening to a wide variety of music genres.  Dr. Brown roots for the North Carolina Tar Heels and the Houston Rockets. 

Dr. Brown believes strongly in the model of integrated healthcare and where dentistry and oral health fit within it.  He understands how important a role healthy dentition plays in overall health, self-confidence and societal success.  He greatly enjoys taking the time to get to know his patients – it’s not all "drill and fill." He helps create a stress-free environment so that each patient arrives and leaves feeling confident that he or she was treated properly, professionally and with fantastic outcomes.
