New (but experienced) dentist in town!

When Chris Chamberlin graduated Ohio State Dental School and was selected to do an advanced dental residency program in Denver, he never planned to stay in Colorado. He never planned to practice dentistry in Boulder, and he didn't plan on meeting his wife, Boulder native Janet Birmingham - born when Boulder had 19,000 residents. Except for the four years she spent getting her college degree in Fort Collins, Janet intended to live out her life in the most beautiful town (Boulder - where else) in the most beautiful state in the country.

Upon completing his residency at Denver Health, Dr. Chamberlin headed back to his hometown of Toledo, Ohio. He purchased an existing dental practice in a Toledo suburb (Maumee) and started off on his exciting new career in dentistry in 1977.

In 1981 he convinced Janet to join him in Ohio, marry him and have his children – an offer she (fortunately for Dr. Chamberlin) did not refuse. However, Dr. Chamberlin had to fulfill one requirement for his wife: he had to take the dental boards and be licensed to practice dentistry in Colorado. Janet was certain that he was going to practice dentistry in Boulder one day.

For 25 years the couple worked together building a successful dental practice and raising two boys. Because Janet’s family was in Boulder, they made many trips back to visit and enjoy Colorado’s beautiful mountains.

In 2006, the Chamberlins made one of the biggest decisions in their lives. They decided to move to Boulder (or as Janet would say, move “back home”). Our firstborn son had just graduated Ohio State University and was settling down in Jackson Hole, Wyo. Our second son had just graduated high school and wanted to start college at the University of Colorado at Boulder. The family packed up its belongings (including three cats) accumulated over 25 years and headed “home.”

One of the first people the Chamberlins met when they arrived was their ReMax of Boulder agent. He managed to do the impossible – find the family a relatively new condo, just minutes away from Janet’s mother, with gorgeous views of the Flatirons and the Front Range, for a price within their budget.

"I opened the door to my new Boulder dental practice in January 2007," Dr. Chamberlin says. "While we are working hard to get my name and experience out in the Boulder community, I am truly enjoying practicing dentistry in Colorado. When we are not working, we are enjoying all that Colorado has to offer in outdoor activities."

"I love seeing new patients with whom I can share my years of dental experience as well as my love of this beautiful state that Janet and I now have the privilege of living and working in and calling “home."
