Dr. Ivey enjoys all aspects of oral surgery but has particular interests in facial trauma, nutrition, and whole health approaches to surgery, bone grafting, and regenerative medicine within dentistry. He started practicing dentistry in 2013.
Dr. Ivey grew up in Greensboro, North Carolina. He attended undergraduate college and dental school at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill, becoming an avid UNC fan over the course of the decade, and completing his doctorate of dental surgery. He later moved to Texas and attended Texas Tech for Medical School, where he earned his MD. While in medical school, he worked full time as a general dentist in Lubbock, Texas. He did this for 2 years during medical school and values this insight into his peers and the field of dentistry.
After Medical School, Dr. Ivey completed a residency internship in General Surgery and Trauma at JPS Fort Worth and Baylor Hospital. This was a unique experience providing insight and knowledge into total health, medicine, and complex medical patients and issues, as well as life-threatening injuries and disease. His anesthesiology training was completed at Parkland Hospital in Dallas.
Returning to dentistry and oral surgery, Dr. Ivey attended Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas and the Texas A&M College of Dentistry for OMFS training. Here, he trained in facial trauma, reconstructive jaw surgeries, TMJ, and the full scope of dental surgery. He is a published author in implant dentistry, and also served as an editor for an Internal Medicine textbook for medical students. In Denver, he is a member of the Colorado Dental Associate, Metro Denver Dental Society, the ADA, AAOMS, and the Colorado Association of Oral Surgery.
In his free time, he enjoys skiing, fishing, and spending time with his friends and family. He has a special cat named Pickles, and an amazing koi pond that he built from the ground up! You’ll also notice his love of Jordans when you see him in the office. We’re happy to have him on our team during this transition, and he looks forward to meeting all of our amazing patients and referring doctors.
