Dr. Erik Palmberg grew up in Iowa, and after moving to Minnesota for college, followed in his parents’ footsteps by studying dentistry at the University of Iowa. After graduation, he returned to Minnesota to practice for two years before moving out here to Colorado. Spending his time in the mountains, he met his wife Julie in 2012 while skiing in Vail. Julie is a Pediatric Dentist in Highlands Ranch and grew up in Centennial.
Erik and Julie spend their time enjoying the outdoors with their family, and developing as professionals in the Denver dental community. Over the last few years they have built a wonderful life together and are excited to see the world through the eyes of their two little girls.
Whether mountain biking, fly fishing, caring for their patients, or enjoying ‘date night’ at a dental study club dinner, both take great satisfaction from giving their best in all that they do. Perpetual students of dentistry, they both stay up to date on important advances in dentistry by maintaining affiliations with many study clubs and continuing education series.
As the son of two dentists, Erik’s treatment philosophies are rooted in decades of dentistry. Although he is always learning about the ‘latest and greatest,’ he takes a conservative approach to treatment; relying on proven materials and concepts to give his patients predictable, affordable, high quality dentistry. His patient centered philosophy emphasizes helping patients understand their options and determine the best course of treatment to meet their goals.
Dr. Palmberg is a member of the American Dental Association, Colorado Dental Association, Metro Denver Dental Society, and stays up to date by studying with the SUmmit Dental Implant Study Club, Colorado Prosthodontic Society, DentalEd, International Partnership for the Study of Occlusion, Spear Dental Education, the Foundation for Advanced Contuing Education, and many others.
