Welcome Dr. Katya Mauritson - Director, Oral Health Unit

Dr. Mauritson received her Doctorate of Dental Medicine from Tufts School of Dental Medicine and is currently pursuing her Master in Public Health with the Colorado School of Public Health. As a general dentist, Dr. Mauritson focused much of her work on delivering services to underserved pediatric and geriatric populations.

"Helping improve access to preventive care for all Coloradans is what drives me," says Dr. Mauritson, adding "the opportunity to work with the local oral health experts and to be a part of the State's Oral Health Unit is incredible."
