Dr. Brian Trommeter, DDS, MSD
Dr. Trommeter was born and raised in the Park Hill neighborhood where his parents still reside today. His family ties to the area run even deeper as his paternal grandparents purchased their family home in Park Hill on 26th and Forest in January 1960. Dr. Trommeter's grandfather actually worked as a mechanic at Stapleton International Airport for Continental Airlines.
His interest in dentistry began early with his own experience with braces. His front teeth were “a little out there” and not very straight. While his friends typically had braces during grade school, Dr. Trommeter was lucky enough (sarcasm) to have them during high school. It was worth the wait. Removal of the braces came with an increase in self-esteem and a confident smile. This transformative experience was enough to make him consider being an orthodontist as a career choice. After graduating from Regis Jesuit High School, he went on to attend Marquette University, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Dr. Trommeter graduated summa cum laude from Marquette with a degree in Biomedical Sciences, a minor in Biology, and a new found appreciation for Colorado sunshine. He knew it was time to come home.
Dr. Trommeter attended dental school locally at the University of Colorado School of Dental Medicine. During his third year of dental school, he married his high school sweetheart, Kelly. They actually started dating during their senior year of high school shortly after they both had their braces removed! Coincidence?
He was one of seven students in his dental school class inducted into the exclusive National Dental Honor Society, Omicron Kappa Upsilon, and he was the only member of his class to specialize in orthodontics and accepted a position within the University of Colorado’s Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics residency program in 2011. His master’s thesis studied smile esthetics and variables that influence perceptions of attractiveness.
When he's not at the office, Dr. Trommeter spends his free time caring about the Denver Broncos and Marquette Golden Eagles as if he’s a member of the team, and trying to better his wife at golf - she’s a former Colorado high school golf champion and division I athlete. His claims to fame include a hole-in-one at Harvard Gulch the first time he ever played golf and being featured as an “NFL Game-Changer” on CBS during the Broncos run to the SuperBowl.
Dr. Trommeter is realizing his professional dream of using his knowledge and talents to inspire confidence and improve the health of the community he has called home for three decades.
