Dr. Ted Struhs is happy to say he grew up here in the South Denver area. After high school, he completed his biology degree at Colorado State University, while also earning a minor in anatomy and neurobiology. His studies took him to Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, VA, to study dentistry. At dental school, he received numerous academic awards, earned research honors, and was given top leadership roles. He graduated summa cum laude, earning his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree in 2003. This academic record gave him the chance to stay at Virginia Commonwealth University, known as one of the top academic and clinical orthodontic residencies. In 2005, he received his certificate as a specialist if orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics and a master’s degree in oral biology.

Dr. Struhs returned to Colorado following his studies and sees patients in the same communities as the ones he grew up in — although you can imagine it’s a bit different than it was 35 years ago. He is proud to treat his patients with the most comfortable and efficient treatment techniques available. Dr. Struhs continues to be part of numerous dental study clubs, involves himself with community and school educational programs, and provides his office with the leading benefits of today’s evolving orthodontic profession.

As a true Colorado native, Dr. Struhs still spends much of his time skiing in the winter and enjoying the beautiful summers here in Colorado. His wife, Julie, also grew up here, and they are happy to be able to raise their three kids in their own beautiful home town.
