Dr. Aaron Birch Family Dental

Dr. Aaron Birch

I grew up in the small town of Green River, WY, where I watched my father practice dentistry. I enjoyed watching my dad make people smile, and I wanted to do the same.

Shortly after marrying my wife, Brooke, I graduated from Brigham Young University, and we moved to Denver, CO, so I could attend the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center’s School of Dentistry. Our first child, Hunter, was born during this time. I graduated Cum Laude in 2005 and received the Academy of Operative Dentistry Award.

After graduation, we found ourselves in Grand Junction, where I’ve had the pleasure of working for the past several years and have met many of you. Our second son, Paxton, was born here.

Our family welcomed a baby girl, Kara, in 2014, and we enjoy spoiling our princess!   We’ve already taken her on hikes through the Colorado National Monument and exploring Ouray.

Our family has come to call the Grand Valley home, enjoying the great people and the great activities here. In my spare time, I enjoy golfing, 4-wheeling, big game hunting, camping, sports, and anything that involves my family.
