Originally from Florida, Dr. Rae is one of 4 children. From the young age of 8, Dr. Rae knew she wanted to be a kid’s dentist after spending time with her Dad in his dental practice. In her senior high-school yearbook she listed “Children’s Dentist” as her desired profession. She is thrilled to be living her dream and helping kids enjoy the dental experience rather than fear it. She fell in love with outdoor adventures when she and her three siblings were introduced to camping at a young age. Subsequent summers were spent hiking, backpacking, canoeing, sailing, camping, and visiting National Parks. Her passion for children’s dentistry and love of the outdoors is the inspiration for Camp Little Tooth. Her desire is to inspire kids to not only understand and appreciate the importance of good oral health, but to have an appreciation for an active lifestyle, love of nature, a healthy diet and most importantly to have a spirit of adventure! She believes that the dental office does not have to be an intimidating sterile experience but one of warmth where laughter is the prescribed medicine. You might just see her making balloon art such as monkeys, flowers, and hats to delight your little one - balloon swords and princess wands are a top request!
Dr. Rae is excited to be a resident of the great state of Colorado and is enjoying all the outdoor adventures that it has to offer. Along with her husband Jeff, and Montana, their lovable Goldendoodle, they enjoy snowshoeing, skiing, hiking, kayaking, camping and backpacking. She also loves to sing and is passionate about musical theater and has performed in numerous musical productions such as Beauty and the Beast, Hairspray, Oliver! and The Music Man.
Dr. Rae appreciates the trust you place in her to treat your child and is committed to making sure you and your family have a top-notch experience! Her goal is to ensure that your child will always be a happy camper at Camp Little Tooth!
