Julia A. Rohleder, DMD
I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself and give you an idea about where I’m from and what I’ve done. Being from an Air Force family, I’ve lived many different places, but I consider Colorado Springs to be my home. After graduating from Rampart High School in 1993, I began my undergraduate education at Southern Illinois University (SIU). I studied at SIU for the next seven years until I completed my dental education in the summer of 2000. Upon graduation, my husband and I moved back to Colorado Springs to start my dental career.
I am excited to be practicing downtown. I hope that it will make going to the dentist much more convenient for those around the area. I promise to provide high-quality care with your best interests in mind. I will always give you an honest appraisal of your dental health and will work with you to develop a treatment plan that is both comprehensive and cost effective.
Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to provide dental care for you and your family.
