Dr. Leslie J. Paris started our practice (now known as Northern Colorado Periodontics) from scratch in 1998. After 34 years in dentistry and 22 years in private periodontal practice, Dr. Paris transitioned into a “mid-life career change” in 2019. Leaving behind the role of periodontal private practice owner and clinician, she plans to stay involved in dentistry to lecture, teach and consult dental and periodontal practices across the nation. Additionally, Dr. Paris plans to enjoy her freedom by working on her foreign travel “bucket list”. Her legacy lives on with the high standard of care we continue to provide at Northern Colorado Periodontics.
